Jazz center Rudy Gobert has MCL sprain in left knee, sources say

NBAE via Getty Images The Roundup—Jazz 107 Celtics 95

An initial evaluation of the injured left knee of Utah Jazz star center Rudy Gobert revealed a Grade 1 MCL sprain, league sources told ESPN. The post player is also dealing with a bone bruise in his tibia.

However, they bounced back in an enormous way last night by toppling the Boston Celtics by a score of 107-95 despite losing both Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors to injury early in the contest. The Utah big man is reportedly expected to miss one month due to a sprained PCL in his left knee.

Gobert was examined Saturday by the Utah Jazz medical staff and underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) testing.

Gobert missed 11 games from November 11-Dec.

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

It's a tough break for the Jazz, and especially for Gobert, who earlier this season missed 11 games after suffering a bone bruise in his right knee. And if the Utah Jazz is going to make any type of noise in the West for the remainder of the season - and perhaps in the playoffs - they're going to need a healthy roster, not just Rudy Gobert. But the team just got more bad news.

Gobert has appeared in 18 games this season, averaging 11.6 points, 9.6 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks a night.
