Utah's Rudy Gobert Thinks Dion Waiters Targeted His Knee on objective

13 November 2017

On Saturday, it was revealed he sustained a right knee contusion and he will be evaluated in four weeks.

Dion Waiters went after a loose ball during Friday's contest and fell into Gobert, which caused his knee to bend inward.

"I've never been a dirty player in my life", Waiters said Sunday prior to the Heat's game against the Pistons in Detroit.

"Obviously, it will be a difference", Gobert's teammate, Derrick Favors, exclaimed after witnessing the injury. He missed the following game, however, a 114-106 Utah win over the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday before being ruled out for an extended time.

"I was feeling a little sore".

Waiters said he would have preferred Gobert discuss the incident in private instead of spreading his opinion on social-media. I didn't even know that was him. But it could have been potentially been a worse injury.

The 7-foot-1-inch center is now averaging 13.9 points, 10.5 rebounds and a league-best 2.5 blocks per game in his fifth National Basketball Association season. He tweeted, "Dove for the ball right ..." accompanied by video of the play. "Kind of like the same thing that happened before on my MCL so my knee just went inside and kind of popped inside and back out", an irate Gobert is quoted as saying by Desert News. He is now the frontrunner to win the Defensive Player of the Year award.

The Jazz are 6-7 this season.
