Jazz C Rudy Gobert out 4-6 weeks


It was the first game of the year Gobert missed, after suffering a right knee contusion when he was hit by a diving Dion Waiters against the Miami Heat.

Gobert told the Deseret News after the game: "It feels better than it looked on the video".

Through 12 games, Gobert has averaged 13.9 points and 10.5 rebounds, while blocking 30 shots. Not that it's much of a praiseworthy accomplishment, but I correctly predicted Utah's loss to Miami and win over Brooklyn while overestimating them against Philly, so I was able to best the Jazz on the week by going 2-1, raising my season projection record to a slightly better 7-6.

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

The Jazz called him "questionable" by midday before the second of the back-to-back games, then said he would warm up before the team made a game-time decision.

He (goes) right to social media. Tell him to get out of his feelings. His 2.5 blocks a game lead the National Basketball Association. "Maybe he didn't see me, but it was a pretty good tackle".

At $32 billion previous year , it was the sixth largest with the United States, though less than a tenth the size of China's. An global tribunal has also ruled against China's maritime claims but Beijing has refused to recognize the court's ruling.

"I've never been a dirty player in my life".

"Those are always tough plays when it's a loose ball", Spoelstra said.
