On Saturday, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reported Gobert was diagnosed with a sprained PCL in his left knee. Before that injury, he led the National Basketball Association with 2.5 blocks per game this season.

Gobert is averaging 11.6 points, 9.6 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game this season. He suffered the injury after a collision with teammate Derrick Favors, who rolled into his frontcourt partner's leg during a battle under the Boston basket. The good news for Jazz fans is that the team didn't completely fall off when he missed 11 games earlier this year.

The Utah Jazz will be in for quite a challenge as they look to produce a similar result tonight against the Cleveland Cavaliers as they did last game against the Boston Celtics. This can be seen in two ways, either Gobert is on the end of some bad luck or the hole left by Gordon Hayward is bigger than initially feared and the toll on his body is beginning to tell.

After getting injured in the opening minutes, Gobert limped off the court.

The Jazz on Saturday morning recalled Tony Bradley from the Salt Lake City Stars to add another big man to the roster.
