Update: Ricky Rubio (injury management) available Wednesday for Cavaliers, unlikely to play

Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Ricky Rubio (left knee injury management - ACL recovery) is unlikely to play Wednesday versus the Philadelphia 76ers, per head coach J.B. Bickerstaff.

What It Means:

Rubio was ruled out for the second leg of the back-to-back earlier in the day, but the Cavaliers will have the veteran guard available in need of an emergency on Wednesday night. He played 21 minutes on Tuesday versus the Charlotte Hornets and scored 11 points with 5 rebounds, 4 assists, and a block. Raul Neto and Caris LeVert will have more backcourt minutes available off the bench Wednesday night.

Per numberFire's NBA Heat Map, the Cavaliers' implied total (110.5) and the game total (223.5) are both second-lowest on Wednesday's seven-game slate. The 76ers are allowing the second-fewest FanDuel points per game to opposing point guards this season.
