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

Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert is expected to miss up to a month of National Basketball Association action after the team said Saturday he had been diagnosed with a sprained left knee. He'll be re-evaluated in two weeks following the second lower-body injury to the big man in the past month and a half.

Gobert sustained his injury early in the first quarter of Friday's game against the Boston Celtics.

The seven-foot-tall Gobert is now averaging 11.6 points, 9.6 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game in his fifth National Basketball Association season. All but one of their next eight games are against teams that rank Top 10 in overall net rating so far this season.

"This group's got character and they are going to compete no matter what the circumstances, and they did".

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

Hopefully this does not become a recurring issue for Gobert and the Jazz.
