Fantasy Impact:

Rubio is an elite passer, averaging 5.4 assists on the season to make up for a lackluster shooting performance which preserves his fantasy value. Fantasy managers should claim Rubio off waivers if they have an open roster spot, as he remains available in 60% of ESPN leagues and can create a big advantage in leagues that value assists at 1.5 fantasy points. With Rubio continuing to miss time in the league's health and safety protocols, D'Angelo Russell should continue to see the bulk of the workload at the point guard position against the Hawks on Friday night.
