Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert has been diagnosed with a sprained posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and a bone bruise in his left tibia, and is expected to be sidelined for approximately one month, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
Despite injuries, Gobert has had a solid season himself.
Gobert, 25, left Friday night's game against the Boston Celtics early with a knee injury. 1 because of a bone bruise in his right knee.
It's worth mentioning that Utah's Derrick Favors and the rest of the squad filled in well last time Gobert missed time.
Gobert is nearly averaging a double-double, with 11.6 points and 9.6 rebounds per game. Averaging over two blocks per game, he is arguably the NBA's most formidable rim protector. The problem with that is Gobert is the team's best player, and they are already struggling just to be in the hunt for the eighth spot in the Western Conference.
Honestly, Gobert's lucky he didn't suffer a more serious injury, as his knee definitely bent in an awkward position. The Jazz also have recalled Tony Bradley from the Salt Lake Stars, a move first reported by The Tribune on Friday night.
