The news is out, but it’s as expected, that the Utah Jazz are not going to be playing Rudy Gobert in Game 2 of the NBA Playoffs. Game two is tomorrow night visiting the “now or never” Los Angeles Clippers.

Raul Neto (ankle sprain)
Rudy Gobert out tomorrow. Raul Neto participated in practice, questionable— kristen kenney (@kristenkenney) April 17, 2017
But there is some good news. Rudy is upright. Rudy is walking around. Rudy is at practice. And Rudy is on the court doing basketball things.

Rudy Gobert not doing much on the court, but him being able to do anything is a positive for the Jazz at this point. pic.twitter.com/GGhuwvEdNQ— Aaron Falk (@aaronfalk) April 17, 2017
Rudy Gobert in good spirits says Derrick Favors. Even shooting a bit with Alex pic.twitter.com/HTmAFCXZjB— kristen kenney (@kristenkenney) April 17, 2017
Coach Q said Rudy Gobert is limping around shooting. no timetable on his return. George Hill says it's great to see him cracking jokes.— kristen kenney (@kristenkenney) April 17, 2017
No time-table is just what we’d all expect. Happy to see him on the court. The Clippers won’t know when he’ll be back either. That fear will be there every night though.
