Rudy Gobert won't play for France during the qualifying tournament for the Olympics this summer.
"This season I had several injuries, so Jazz want me to stay in Salt Lake in June to work on my body," Gobert said. He did add that he will play in Rio if France qualifies, but it makes sense for the big man to get as much rest as possible after battling knee and ankle issues this season. He will be a bounce-back candidate for the 2016-17 campaign. Apr 29 - 2:14 PM

Rudy Gobert doesn't expect to play for France during the qualifying tournament for the Olympics.

Gobert would want to join the team if they qualify for the Olympic tournament in Rio de Janeiro this summer, but it sounds like he'll take it easy for the next few months. He finished the season with a sprained right ankle that forced him to use crutches and wear a walking boot, but he has copious time to recover during the offseason.
Apr 14 - 3:26 PM

Rudy Gobert (sprained right ankle) is not traveling with the Jazz for Wednesday's game vs. the Lakers.

This obviously rules him out for the last game of the regular season, which isn't really a surprise because he was wearing a walking boot and using crutches after Monday's game vs. Dallas. Derrick Favors will likely shift to center on Wednesday, meaning Trey Lyles and Trevor Booker will both see more minutes at the four. Favors is a must-start option and Lyles is worth a long look too.

Rudy Gobert (sprained right ankle) left the arena in a walking boot on Monday.

Gobert's status is in question for Wednesday's season finale against the Lakers after spraining his ankle during Monday's loss to the Mavericks. We'll keep an eye on his status for Wednesday's game after shootaround, but we're likely looking at a game-time decision as the Jazz attempt to clinch a playoff spot.

Rudy Gobert (right ankle sprain) will not return to Monday's game vs. the Mavericks.

Derrick Favors (knee) started the second half in his place and will now have to play more even though he's dealing with soreness in his knee. Gobert rolled his ankle pretty good and was in a lot of pain, and it's not a good sign that he wasn't able to return in a must-win game. He finished with two points, six boards and two assists. For what it's worth, Gobert was seen after the game using crutches.

Rudy Gobert (ankle) is questionable to return to Monday's game vs. Dallas.

He suffered a right ankle sprain and was in a lot of pain. This is a must-win game for the Jazz, so hopefully he will able to return. If not, Derrick Favors (knee) will have to play more even though he isn't 100 percent.
Apr 11 - 10:04 PM

Rudy Gobert blocked six shots to go along with 16 points and 14 rebounds in an easy win vs. the Nuggets on Sunday, making 5-of-7 FGs and 6-of-11 FTs in 38 minutes.

Rudy fell one block shy of his season high, which he set back on Nov. 30, and the matchup was a big reason for his success -- the Nuggets have been blocked 6.3 times per game this season, easily the highest mark in the league. Gobert didn't have the massive campaign his owners hoped for, but he's still averaging career highs in points (9.1), rebounds (11.0) and assists (1.5), with a respectable 2.2 blocks and 0.8 steals.
Apr 10 - 7:40 PM

Rudy Gobert played like garbage during the Jazz' 102-99 overtime loss to the Clippers' B-squad on Friday, registering just seven points, seven boards, one assist, one turnover and zero defensive statistics through 24 minutes of action.

Gobert was abused by a guy named Cole Aldrich in this one, and he just hasn't performed as advertised this season. Even when punting away free throws, Gobert has only been a seventh-round guy in 9-cat leagues since the break with averages of 7.4 points, 11.6 rebounds and 1.8 swats per contest on 49.6 percent shooting. That's the opposite of elite.
Apr 9 - 3:21 AM

Rudy Gobert had four points, 10 rebounds, a steal and two blocks in Tuesday's loss to the Spurs.

Gobert came in hot but struggled against the tough D of the Spurs tonight. Hopefully he gets back on track in the next one.
Apr 6 - 12:58 AM

Rudy Gobert scored 11 points with 18 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 38 minutes against the Warriors on Wednesday.

He's back to putting up numbers with an eight-point, 19-board game coming on Monday. Gobert hasn't been up to the high standards he set from last year, but maybe he can have a big finish as the Jazz fight for a playoff spot. Keep him rolling.
Mar 31 - 12:01 AM

Rudy Gobert finally turned in a nice line against the Lakers on Monday with eight points, 19 rebounds, four assists and two blocks in 28 minutes.

He did not turn the ball over and nothing cures a cold spell like the Lakers frontcourt. Gobert has said his knee injury hasn't been the problem for his dip in production. He might be able to put together a big week with four games in favorable matchups.
Mar 29 - 1:28 AM

Rudy Gobert, who has struggled over his last five games, said that his knee is not the issue.

The Stifle Tower AKA The French Rejection is averaging just five points, nine boards and 1.6 blocks over that span, but he said he just hasn't played the way he's wanted to and refused to blame any fallout from his previous knee injury. Those with Gobert in season-long formats have no choice but to keep rolling him out there. He gets a prime opportunity to get back on track vs. the Lakers on Monday night.
Mar 28 - 1:51 PM

Rudy Gobert scored five points with 11 rebounds, four blocks and three turnovers against the Wolves on Saturday.

Baby steps. This is really the first decent line from Gobert this week. In his previous two, he averaged 3.0 points, 6.5 boards and 0.5 blocks. He has four games this upcoming week, so get him in your lineups and hope he produces some points, boards and blocks.
Mar 27 - 12:21 AM

Rudy Gobert played 16 minutes due to foul trouble on Thursday with four points, six rebounds and one block.

He picked up two quick fouls and a third in the early part of the second quarter. Gobert is having a terrible run and is basically off limits in DFS right now. His owners in season-long leagues have to just hope he snaps out of it.
Mar 25 - 12:33 AM

Rudy Gobert scored just two points with seven rebounds, one assist and four turnovers in 23 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday.

He has been a very big letdown on the season and is having his worst offensive month since he was moved into a starting role. In his 12 March games, Gobert averaged just 6.6 points, 12.3 boards, 1.3 blocks and 0.7 steals on 47.4 percent from the field and 53.2 percent from the line. He just hasn't been the same since his knee injury from back in November.
