Rudy Gobert Knee Injury Reportedly Diagnosed as Sprained PCL; Out 1 Month

Posted December 17, 2017

Gobert sprained his PCL and has a bone bruise on his tibia, according to The Vertical's Shams Charania.

Despite injuries, Gobert has had a solid season himself. He missed the rest of Friday night's game against the Celtics with a left knee injury.

The Utah Jazz announced center Rudy Gobert (knee) will be re-evaluated in two weeks. Teammate Derrick Favors appeared to roll over the back of Gobert's leg, causing the injury. Utah went with a more wide-open offense in those games.

Gobert is nearly averaging a double-double, with 11.6 points and 9.6 rebounds per game.

"This group's got character, and they are going to compete no matter what the circumstances, and they did", Jazz head coach Quin Snyder told reporters.

Upon his return, our models project Gobert for averages of 14.9 points, 10.3 rebounds, 1.1 assists, and 2.1 blocks over 32.5 minutes per game.

Jonas Jerebko likely will move into the starting lineup to fill the opening left by Gobert. The team also called up Tony Bradley on Saturday, with the Salt Lake City Stars player is expected to see minutes in the Jazz frontcourt over the next few games.
