He missed the rest of Friday night's game against the Celtics with a left knee injury.

On Saturday, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reported Gobert was diagnosed with a sprained PCL in his left knee.

He suffered the injury during Friday's 107-95 victory over the Boston Celtics, going to the floor awkwardly after appearing to get rolled into by teammate Derrick Favors early in the first quarter.

This injury comes just two weeks after Gobert returned from an 11-game absence after a different bone bruise in his knee.

Gobert is expected to undergo further evaluation in order to pinpoint a true timetable for his return.

However, without Gobert, the Jazz will miss a player who is integral to their defensive identity. During that span, the Jazz went an impressive 7-4. He's still one of the NBA's best rim-protecting big men, but he's struggled to find his way on offense, which makes this time away from the team even worse.

Still, it's important that Gobert gets - and remains - healthy for the stretch run.

This is the second time this season Gobert will miss time.

The NBA gods just haven't been kind to them this season.
