Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert was injured in the first minute of the Jazz’s series with the Los Angeles Clippers.
He lasted just 13 seconds into the first playoff game of his career. He banged knees with Lic Mbah a Moute on a pick-and-roll play.
The Jazz has already ruled him out for the rest of the game. They said he has a left knee sprain and will not return in this game.
With Gobert being ruled out, the team is likely having him go through an MRI to see if its worse than initially feared. Depending on the MRI results, it could possibly have to miss a game or more in the series.
The team will now have to count on Jeff Withey, Derrick Favors, Boris Diaw and possibly even Trey Lyles to make up for the time that the team was expected to get from Gobert. This will also require the team to go small for the rest of the game despite facing Clippers big men Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan.
