Rudy Gobert    C  Jazz

 

 

Rudy Gobert (left knee) still needs to undergo an MRI on injured left knee, but early evaluation suggests he has a Grade 1 MCL sprain, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com. There can be a subtle difference on a Grade 1 or a Grade 2, but a Grade 1 would make him day-to-day. We're probably going to have to wait until Saturday to get a better idea how much time he's going to miss, but his fantasy owners should not expect him for Saturday. Derrick Favors also got hurt tonight, so the Jazz may have to extend minutes of Ekpe Udoh, Jonas Jerebko and the other wings.

Gobert will not return to Friday's game against the Celtics after suffering a left knee injury, David Locke of the Jazz Radio Network reports. The injury occurred early in the first quarter after teammate Derrick Favors rolled on Gobert's leg. The severity of the injury is unknown at this time, as the Jazz will likely need to run more tests on the big mans' knee. His status for Saturday's game against the Cavaliers does not look good at the moment, but expect an update once the team provides more information on the situation.

Rudy Gobert (left knee) will not return to Friday's game against the Celtics. The team is calling it a "left knee injury" and he is still in the locker room. Gobert tried to get up after Derrick Favors fell into him, but he needed some help off the floor as the training staff looked at him. Although, Gobert was eventually able to limp back to the locker room under his own power. While he's out, Derrick Favors gets a big boost as the center while Ekpe Udoh, Jonas Jerebko and Thabo Sefolosha should also help out. Joe Johnson could see some more stretch-four minutes, as well.

Gobert was helped to the locker room during Friday's game against the Celtics after Derrick Favors rolled into his knee, David Locke of the Jazz Radio Network reports. Locke also mentioned that Gobert seemed to be moving better the more he walked, so it doesn't seem to be serious at the moment. He should be considered questionable to return, with more information on his status likely emerging at some point during the game.

Rudy Gobert (knee) was helped to the locker room in the first quarter on Friday. It did not look good as he was down for about a minute. Derrick Favors fell on Gobert's left knee and it looked to have hyperextend. After a brief structural check from the medical staff, Gobert was helped to the locker room with a heavy limp and he was in some pain as he went back there. Expect another update shortly, but he's probably out for the night.

Raul Neto    PG  Jazz

 

 

Neto (concussion) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Celtics, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports. Neto will miss his third straight games as he continues to work his way through the league's concussion protocol. In his absence, Donovan Mitchell and Alec Burks are expected to continue to be the primary ball-handlers when starter Ricky Rubio is on the bench.

Joe Johnson    SF  Jazz

 

 

Johnson (wrist) is available to play in Friday's game against the Celtics, Tony Jones of The Salt Lake Tribune reports. Johnson has missed the last 21 games due to a right wrist sprain, and he'll finally make his return Sunday in Boston. Johnson will likely have some limitations placed on him, although what those will exactly be likely won't be determined till after shootaround Sunday morning. For now, Johnson's return could eat into minutes off Rodney Hood and Alec Burks off the bench, but his fit in the rotation will become more clear once he is given a full dose of minutes.

Raul Neto    G  Jazz

 

 

Raul Neto (concussion) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Celtics. Neto being ruled out a day in advance suggests that he hasn't cleared the league's concussion protocol. Utah has sufficient backcourt depth with Ricky Rubio, Donovan Mitchell, Alec Burks and Rodney Hood, so they're not going to rush Neto back at less than 100 percent.

Joe Johnson    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Joe Johnson (wrist) has been cleared to play vs. Boston on Friday. Rodney Hood (ankle) returned to action on Wednesday and Alec Burks has been playing well lately, so Johnson's minutes are likely to come at the expense of Jonas Jerebko. Johnson hasn't played since Oct. 30, of course, so we're not expecting him to log heavy playing time in his first game back.

Rudy Gobert    C  Jazz

 

 

Gobert finished with just six points while adding 11 rebounds, five blocks, and one assist in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 103-100 loss to the Bulls. Gobert continues to work his way back from a knee injury, attempting just seven field goals in the loss. He has scored in double-figures in just one of his five games since returning but does have 11 blocks in that span. He was scoring more prior to going down, however, since then Donovan Mitchell has established himself as a legitimate scoring dynamo. Gobert is going to have to get used to playing next to Mitchell and should see his value climb over the next week or so.
