  • Rookie center Bradley joins Jazz with Gobert Favors out

The Utah Jazz announced center Rudy Gobert (knee) will be re-evaluated in two weeks. The 7-foot-1 Frenchman is expected to miss a month after an MRI revealed he suffered a sprained PCL in his knee and a bone bruise in his tibia, Yahoo!

Gobert has appeared in 18 games this season, averaging 11.6 points, 9.6 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks a night. The Jazz recalled Tony Bradley from the Salt Lake Stars of the G League. However, there's no limiting what this Jazz team can do.

Therefore, with that big win under their belts, the Jazz will look to take that momentum into Cleveland tonight when they visit LeBron James and the red hot Cleveland Cavaliers on the second night of a back-to-back. Chasing the Oklahoma City Thunder and New Orleans Pelicans down in the standings, who are clearly more talented teams, will be a tall task without Gobert in the lineup. Therefore, this game is going to be potentially an even bigger challenge for the Jazz than the one they played last night.
