Rudy Gobert And D’Angelo Russell Set To Miss Time With Injuries

Published

on

The Utah Jazz are going to be without the services of Rudy Gobert for at least four weeks after the big man suffered a bone bruise in his knee. Gobert is one of the premier defenders in the whole league and for a Jazz team that struggles to score and relies a lot on their defense this is a huge blow. In a loaded Western Conference I have a hard time seeing the Jazz still being in a playoff spot when Gobert returns. On top of being one of the better defenders in the league, he is averaging 13.9 points per game and is a huge force inside and a tough matchup for most teams to deal with in what is a guard-oriented league and I don’t see any way the Jazz replace him over the next month.

In a different injury Brooklyn Nets point guard D’Angelo Russell is set to miss at least a couple of games with a left knee contusion. Russell has been in the midst of a breakout season after being dealt from the Lakers to Brooklyn, averaging 21 points and 5.7 assists per game, so for a team that has surprised some people early this year winning more than people thought they would this is a big injury if it turns out to be an injury that causes him to miss more than just a few games. The consensus seems to be that he will just miss a few games but his recovery from this is going to continue to be monitored.

DeAndre Jordan

The Brooklyn Nets are bringing in more than just Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in free agency.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Nets have agreed to terms on a four-year, $40 million deal with center DeAndre Jordan.

Jordan, a close friend of Durant’s, isn’t the player he was when he was with the Los Angeles Clippers, but is still a solid piece to add to a team with the likes of Jarrett Allen and Chris LeVert, among others.

Jordan averaged 11.0 points and 13.1 rebounds per game for the Dallas Mavericks and New York Knicks last season.
