Jazz center Rudy Gobert has a left knee injury.
Jazz center Rudy Gobert reportedly has a sprained PCL in his left knee and a bone bruise in his tibia. He is expected to miss one month, reports Yahoo's Shams Charania.
After getting injured in the opening minutes, Gobert limped off the court. He missed the rest of Friday night's game against the Celtics with a left knee injury.
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that an early evaluation suggested a Grade 1 MCL sprain.
