Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert suffered a posterior cruciate ligament sprain in his left knee and will miss three to four weeks, multiple media outlets reported Saturday.

In his absence, the Jazz will look to the likes of Jonas Jerebko to play valuable minutes. They'll now have to be without him again.

Gobert has appeared in 18 games this season, averaging 11.6 points, 9.6 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks a night. Only recently did he make his return to the Jazz.


Hopefully this does not become a recurring issue for Gobert and the Jazz. It was during their stretch without him that they began to find their offense and improve overall. But the team just got more bad news. All but one of their next eight games are against teams that rank Top 10 in overall net rating so far this season. He's losing time he could be using to find and solve their struggles on offense.

Gobert was nearly immediately ruled out for the rest of the game after playing just under two minutes. The incident occurred when teammate Derrick Favors fell onto Gobert's leg. Utah went on to win the game 107-95 on the night.
