Monday night was a special day for Rudy Gobert, as his former team, the Utah Jazz, was the host. It’s the three-time Defensive Player of the Year’s chance to play against the teams he’s played for the past nine seasons. Unfortunately, Gobert’s night was interrupted by a storm
Gobert was ruled out for Monday’s game against the Jazz, according to reports the Timberwolves beat Denmark Moore. The 30-year-old was actually on the injury report ahead of Monday’s game, but he was eventually cleared to play. However, his time on the court didn’t last long, with Gobert exiting the game after just five minutes of playing time. He finished his game with two points and a rebound
It’s unclear if Gobert will be forced to miss game time because of this injury, but it’s worth noting that groin issues are often problematic. The fact that he aggravated the injury again in one game meant he had to sit out the next few games
Rudy Gobert has been a key player for the Timberwolves since his transfer from the Jazz last summer. The 7-foot-1 center is currently averaging 67.8 percent shooting from the field, 11.8 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game as he looks to help Minnesota become a bona fide playoff threat in the Western Conference.
