Gobert (knee) is expected to be monitored closely during Tuesday's game against the Thunder, though an exact minutes restriction is not being provided, Erik Horne of the Oklahoman reports.
After an 11-game absence because of a bone bruise in his knee, Gobert made his return to the lineup Monday, posting four points, 10 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks over 21 minutes. With the Jazz going into the second night of a back-to-back, coach Quin Snyder will keep a close eye on Gobert's minutes, so it's unclear if he'll see much more time than the 21 minutes he logged Monday. While Gobert proved he can be effective with limited playing time, he'll still be a risky DFS play for Tuesday's three-game slate.
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.
Gobert will start Monday's game against the Wizards, Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
After missing 11 games with a bone bruise, Gobert will immediately reclaim his spot in the starting five, meaning Derrick Favors will shift back down to power forward. Gobert is expected to face some sort of minutes restriction, however, making him a fairly risky play in daily contests.
Gobert (knee) will play in Monday's game against the Wizards, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.
After taking part in a light practice Sunday without any lingering issues, Gobert will make his return to the lineup from the bone bruise in his right knee, which is much earlier than expected. Considering the lengthy absence, however, the Jazz are going to be as cautious as possible with their big man and according to Kyle Goon of the Salt Lake Tribune, Gobert will be on a minutes restriction. An exact limit hasn't been provided, though fantasy owners may want to wait to activate him until Gobert is back on a full workload. With Gobert back, the likes of Derrick Favors, Jonas Jerebko and Thabo Sefolosha all take a hit to their fantasy value.
Gobert (knee) took part in a light practice Sunday and is now questionable for Monday's matchup with the Wizards, Kyle Goon of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Gobert was originally given a timetable of four-to-six weeks on Nov. 12 with a bone bruise in his right knee, but appears to be progressing much quicker than expected in his recovery. It's been just three weeks since then and he's already gone through a light practice, though the exact details of that session remain unclear. While that bodes well for a return in the near future, it wouldn't be surprising if he ultimately missed a game or two more, especially considering the Jazz are heading into a back-to-back set. Either way, Gobert will be considered questionable for Monday and his return would ultimately mean decreased roles for the likes of Derrick Favors, Jonas Jerebko and Thabo Sefolosha. Look for another update on Gobert following Monday's morning shootaround.
