Jazz will re-evaluate Rudy Gobert (knee) in two weeks

Jazz will re-evaluate Rudy Gobert (knee) in two weeks

It's worth mentioning that Utah's Derrick Favors and the rest of the squad filled in well last time Gobert missed time.

Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert may miss another month after he was diagnosed with a sprained PCL in his left knee as well as a bone bruise.

While they defeated the Celtics in the game Gobert was injured on Friday night, it won't get any easier.

Gobert was examined Saturday by the Utah Jazz medical staff and underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) testing.

The 25-year-old Frenchman exited the team's 107-95 victory after just two minutes and did not return.

Even after their impressive win over the Boston Celtics Friday night, the Jazz are still only 14-15 and 9th in the Western Conference.

The 2017 All-NBA Second Team center is now averaging 11.6 points, 9.6 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game in his fifth NBA season.

The 7-foot-1 Gobert is averaging 12.2 points and 10.1 rebounds in 17 games for the Jazz this season.

Utah Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell has made a bunch of noise so far this season. Chasing the Oklahoma City Thunder and New Orleans Pelicans down in the standings, who are clearly more talented teams, will be a tall task without Gobert in the lineup.
