Jazz Center Rudy Gobert Expected to Miss One Month

Rudy Gobert suffered a sprained PCL in his left knee and a bone bruise in his tibia in the opening moments of the game with the Boston Celtics. The incident occurred when teammate Derrick Favors fell onto Gobert's leg. Utah went on to win the game 107-95 on the night.

The team coped well in his absence before but it will still be a big blow to lose the influential seven-footer.

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

In 18 games this year, Gobert has averaged 11.6 points, 9.6 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game.

The Jazz are among the best defensive teams with Rudy Gobert healthy and on the floor and are in the 3rd place in the National Basketball Association with 99.9 points allowed per contest.

Favors has been filling in at the pivot spot and will now continue to do so.

Favors is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Cavaliers. The emergence of Donovan Mitchell as one of the NBA's best rookies has certainly helped.

With a record of 14-15, the Jazz now holds the ninth seed in the Western Conference.

Finally, to wrap up the week before a slight break for Christmas, the Jazz will host the Oklahoma City Thunder once again on Saturday, marking the third time they'll face them this month and the final time of the season.
