Jazz G Rubio to miss opener against Rockets

The Utah Jazz's starting lineup took a big blow as the team announced Ricky Rubio would be out for game one against the Houston Rockets on Sunday.

Rubio is suffering from a hamstring strain, and according to a report from ESPN, the guard could miss up to 10 days with the injury.

His return could come sooner depending on his progress in rehab.

The guard played well throughout the first-round series against the Oklahoma City Thunder, averaging 14 points per game, but he logged only seven minutes in the series-clinching game six due to pain in his hamstring.

He appeared to tweak it on a pass to Rudy Gobert in the first quarter.

Rubio, 27, missed a few games late in the season to hamstring soreness.
