Rudy Gobert Out Four-Six Weeks With Bone Bruise in Right Knee

Rudy Gobert Out Four-Six Weeks With Bone Bruise in Right Knee

He initially suffered the right knee injury in the third quarter of Friday's 10-point loss to the Miami Heat, after clashing with Dion Waiters, but underwent an MRI Saturday by team doctors where a right tibia contusion was revealed.

Gobert limped off the court following the collision and called it a "dirty play" afterward, according to the Deseret News.

The Jazz have stumbled out of the gate a bit without Hayward, as could have been expected, at 6-7, but their quest for a playoff berth in the ultra-competitive Western Conference just got significantly more hard.

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. At the end of the day, that (expletive) don't matter.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said he saw it from both perspectives but didn't believe Waiters was trying to cause harm.

The 25-year-old's been great defensively over his career, being named to the All-Defensive First Team and leading the association in blocks a season ago. If he thought it was a dirty play, you come to me as a man and you ask me and I'll tell him the same [expletive] I'm saying now. "Maybe he didn't see me, but it was a pretty good tackle". "I'm not a dirty player".

"I didn't get on Quinn as hard as I could", Haslem said. "I jut want him going for it, putting his nose on two or three more of those a game".
