Jazz center Rudy Gobert sidelined vs. Nets with right knee contusion

Dion Waiters Heat

The Utah Jazz said Sunday Rudy Gobert has a bone bruise and will be re-evaluated in four weeks.

Gobert suffered the injury on Friday night in the Jazz' 84-74 loss to the Miami Heat after being tangled up with Dion Waiters.

According to Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune, the Jazz asked the league to review the play and were told Waiters should have been called for a foul but not an intentional one.

Initially, Gobert's injury didn't look serious enough to get him sidelined for long, as he was able to return to the floor in the fourth quarter, finishing the game with 12 points, 12 rebounds, and two blocks in 35 minutes of action.

Jazz coach Quin Snyder said before Saturday's game that he didn't think Waiters was trying to injure Gobert.

I didn't even know that was him. "Tell him to get out of his feelings and that's what it is, just like that".

After an infamous social media incident as a rookie, it seemed that D'Angelo Russell always had a hard time catching on with the Los Angeles Lakers. The 7-foot-1 big man from France is an elite shot-blocker, leading the National Basketball Association in that category last season. "I'm not a dirty player". "It's tough. That's why we're first hoping that he's OK". "Maybe he didn't see me, but it was a pretty good tackle". Usually the guys that are reaching for it, two things happen you don't end up getting it and then secondly you leave yourself a chance of something like that.
