  • Jazz's Rudy Gobert: Suffers MCL sprain
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gobert suffered a Grade 1 MCL sprain in his left knee during Friday's game against the Celtics, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Gobert went down early in the first quarter after teammate Derrick Favors (face) awkwardly rolled onto his leg. It is not the same knee that kept him sidelined for 11 games earlier this season with a bone bruise, and X-Rays came back negative. The big man is without a timetable to return at this time, but he is expected to undergo an MRI Saturday, which should offer a clearer recovery timeline. Favors (face) slid to center during Gobert's original absence, while Jonas Jerebko played power forward, and both figure to benefit from Gobert's absence.

  • Jazz's Rudy Gobert: Will not return Friday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gobert will not return to Friday's game against the Celtics after suffering a left knee injury, David Locke of the Jazz Radio Network reports. The injury occurred early in the first quarter after teammate Derrick Favors rolled on Gobert's leg. The severity of the injury is unknown at this time, as the Jazz will likely need to run more tests on the big mans' knee. His status for Saturday's game against the Cavaliers does not look good at the moment, but expect an update once the team provides more information on the situation.

  • Jazz's Rudy Gobert: Heads to locker room Friday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gobert was helped to the locker room during Friday's game against the Celtics after Derrick Favors rolled into his knee, David Locke of the Jazz Radio Network reports. Locke also mentioned that Gobert seemed to be moving better the more he walked, so it doesn't seem to be serious at the moment. He should be considered questionable to return, with more information on his status likely emerging at some point during the game.

  • Jazz's Rudy Gobert: Blocks five shots in loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gobert finished with just six points while adding 11 rebounds, five blocks, and one assist in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 103-100 loss to the Bulls. Gobert continues to work his way back from a knee injury, attempting just seven field goals in the loss. He has scored in double-figures in just one of his five games since returning but does have 11 blocks in that span. He was scoring more prior to going down, however, since then Donovan Mitchell has established himself as a legitimate scoring dynamo. Gobert is going to have to get used to playing next to Mitchell and should see his value climb over the next week or so.

  • Gobert (knee) totaled four points (2-4 FG), 10 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal across 21 minutes in Monday's 116-69 win over the Wizards. Gobert's return from an 11-game absence was a successful one, as he picked up right where he left off on the boards. With rookie Donovan Mitchell and sixth man extraordinaire Alec Burks combining for 26 shot attempts and 48 points, there wasn't much of a need for Gobert to push the issue offensively in his first game back, which resulted in a modest four shot attempts. Additionally, the Jazz's commanding early lead also allowed head coach Quin Snyder to limit his minutes, an ideal scenario after an extended absence. Gobert should see a progressive bump in minutes over coming games, which should enable him to return to his usual status as a double-double candidate on any given night.
