Northwest Notes: Gobert, Jerebko, Napier, Thunder

Rudy Gobert‘s bone bruise in his right knee will sideline him until December at the earliest, a major blow to the Jazz‘s frontcourt. However, the Utah center also feels the team will be fine in his absence and that he will return to form once he recovers from injury.

“I’m confident that the team is going to win games even when I’m not here and I’ll be back stronger,” Gobert said (via Eric Woodyard of The Deseret News). “It’s like an All-Star break before the All-Star break. So everything is good, I’m confident and nothing’s changed. No team goals. No individual goals. Everything’s good.”

Gobert, 25, was in the midst of another productive season. Through 12 contests, Gobert posted 13.9 PPG, 10.5 RPG and a league-best 2.5 blocks. That Jazz, currently in 10th place in the Western Conference with a 6-8 record, will miss Gobert’s defense but will have to tread water until he returns to not fall out of the playoff race.

    2. Eff the jazz. Every other former Celtic that has gotten a chance to play this year has done good.

    Just for the record….

    Avery Bradley. Kelly Olynyk. Jordan Mickey. Jae Crowder. Amir Johnson. Jonas was more adaptable eve n.

    3. Mason is willing to play whatever he can get and will rarely disappoint. Faried will bitch and say he’s better than what he’s getting and will say he has no reason to try, but will only bump it up when Mason Plumlee shows him how you can be a valuable player without being a….

      How is Faried still on the Nuggets??? Wasn’t he supposed to get traded?
