SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Ricky Rubio left Game 6 of Utah's playoff series against Oklahoma City with a left hamstring injury and the Jazz said he would not return.

Rubio departed with just under 5 minutes remaining in the first quarter. He missed his only shot but had three assists.

The point guard from Spain was having a strong series, averaging 16.8 points, 8.6 rebounds and 7.8 assists entering Friday. He had a triple-double in Utah's Game 3 victory.
