Gobert (knee) is listed as probable for Friday's matchup with the Knicks, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.
Gobert has missed the past 15 games with a sprained left knee, however is probable to make his return Friday against the Knicks. It was reported earlier in the week that he would be out at least another week, however he appears to be ahead of schedule. With his injury causing him to miss significant time, he will likely be on a minutes restriction for the first couple games back. If Gobert does return and gets the start, Derrick Favors could see a reduction in playing time.
Gobert (knee) will miss at least another week, Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Gobert has been out since Dec. 15 with a sprained left knee, and an evaluation Saturday revealed that he'll need at least another 7-to-10 days before returning to full-speed work. The center has been participating in light practices in recent days but has not yet been cleared to take any contact. Assuming Gobert sits out through next weekend, he'll miss at least four more contests, and that could be on the low end considering the Jazz will likely try to get him back for a full practice or two before clearing him for game action. In the meantime, expect Derrick Favors to continue to start at center in a more small-ball-oriented lineup.
Gobert (knee) is participating in non-contact portions of practice, but will remain sidelined for Friday's game against the Hornets, Kyle Goon of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
It was reported a few weeks back that Gobert was still on track for a mid-January return and that appears to potentially be within reach now that Gobert is going through non-contact work. He'll eventually need to go through a full-contact practice or two at some point prior to being cleared, so he may still be a week or so away. Gobert has officially been ruled out for Friday's contest, which would then make Monday's game against the Pacers his next opportunity to take the floor. Continue to monitor his status over the next few days, with another update likely coming when Gobert ramps up his practice activity again.
Gobert (knee), who was evaluated Saturday, is expected to remain sidelined for another two weeks.
This update from the Jazz simply means that Gobert is still on track for his original timetable of a mid-January return. He'll be re-evaluated in two weeks time, in the hope of singling out a specific return date.
It was reported on Dec. 16 that Gobert was expected miss a month with a sprained PCL and bone bruise in his left knee, so Saturday will only be two weeks since that original timetable was reported. For that reason, it seems unlikely that a return is imminent, though Saturday's reevaluation should shed further light on how he's progressing. Gobert will remain out for at least the next two games and further word on a timetable should come Saturday. In the meantime, Derrick Favors should continue to start at center in his place, with Jonas Jerebko, Ekpe Udoh and Thabo Sefolosha seeing expanded roles as well.
