Rudy Gobert News

Updating a previous item, Rudy Gobert (knee) remains doubtful to play against the Clippers on Sunday. The questionable update from earlier today did seem a little odd and another report called him unlikely to play, so Gobert likely needs at least another game off. The Jazz haven't provided many encouraging notes on Gobert outside of a report he is walking without a limp. For now, expect Derrick Favors to log most of the minutes at center. Joe Johnson, Joe Ingles and Rodney Hood also should benefit, especially with no Blake Griffin (toe).

Rudy Gobert (knee) has been upgraded to questionable to face the Clippers on Sunday. Interesting. An earlier report said he was unlikely to play and there has been very little encouraging news on Gobert since the day after his injury. The Jazz listed Derrick Favors as doubtful for almost a month last season, so don't put too much stock into this update. If he can go, this would obviously be a massive swing with him in and Blake Griffin (toe) out.

Rudy Gobert (knee) is unlikely to play in Game 4 on Sunday. Sadly, this isn't a surprise for the Jazz and they'll continue to have to play Derrick Favors more minutes than they probably want to. Favors has looked gassed in the fourth quarter, playing 34.7 minutes per game in his last three. Jeff Withey has also been in the rotation and the Jazz do use Boris Diaw at the five. Joe Johnson and Joe Ingles are also getting some added opportunity, and now the Jazz could go smaller a lot more now that Blake Griffin (toe) is out.

Rudy Gobert (left knee) is out for Game 3 against the Clippers on Friday. The Jazz were lucky to get a 1-1 split in L.A. for the first two games, and a lot of it has to do with Derrick Favors being able to log 32.5 minutes per game. Besides Favors at the five, it's been Jeff Withey and even Boris Diaw picking up some extra minutes. Joe Johnson and Joe Ingles have also stepped up as the Jazz go with more small-ball fours. Gobert should be considered doubtful for Game 4 on Sunday.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: One of the most notable changes in Utah’s dynamic following Gobert’s injury has been Joe Johnson’s spike in usage; it’s climbed 7.8% to 27.4% according to our CourtIQ tool. He’s averaged 30.1 minutes per game he’s taken at least 14 shots in both contests, well above his average of 8.0 FGAs. With Gobert still sidelined, he’ll be a solid value option on the short slate.

Rudy Gobert (left knee) was seen walking without a limp on Tuesday. To be clear, Gobert will still miss Tuesday's Game 2 against the Clippers, and head coach Quin Snyder said he was hopeful to have him back "in a week or two," so Friday's Game 3 also seems a bit unlikely. Walking without a limp obviously isn't close to the sort of movement required to play in an NBA game, but at least he appears to be progressing in the right direction. Derrick Favors will start in Game 2, with Joe Johnson, Boris Diaw and Jeff Withey seeing an uptick in minutes.

Rudy Gobert (left knee) has officially been ruled out for Tuesday's Game 2 against the Clippers. This is not surprising at all considering that Gobert is dealing with both a hyperextension and bone bruise to his left knee, an injury that typically requires a multi-game absence. Head coach Quin Snyder said that he was hopeful to have Gobert back in action "in a week or two," so Game 3 on Friday also seems quite unrealistic. Derrick Favors should be Utah's starting center moving forward, and there will be more minutes available for guys like Joe Johnson, Boris Diaw and Jeff Withey.
