Rudy Gobert has been ruled out for the game due to a calf injury, and his status can be seen in the tweet that is embedded below from the Twitter account of Underdog NBA.
Gobert has missed each of the last two games, so Friday will be his third straight game out of the lineup.

The Grizzlies are one spot ahead of them with a 33-17 record in 50 games.
They are 2.5 games ahead of the Jazz for the third spot.
