Rudy Gobert is expected to get more run with the French FIBA team.
Kevin Seraphin (knee) and Alexis Ajinca aren't going to play, so the team has already added Ian Mahinmi. Gobert was phenomenal at Las Vegas Summer League and how we'll be able to get a larger sample size to see if his improvement is for real. His footwork was vastly improved, leading to better rebounding and blocking. He's a good bet to take some of Enes Kanter's minutes. Jul 24 - 5:29 PM

Jazz center Rudy Gobert will rest a sore shoulder during Tuesday's Summer League game.

It's bad news for anyone watching the game, but won't have any long-term impact. Gobert is 10-of-11 from the field through two games, averaging 12.0 points, 9.0 rebounds and 3.5 blocks against inferior competition, so it makes sense for Utah to rest him as a precaution.

Rudy Gobert showed off his tremendous length vs. the Bucks on Monday, making all six of his shots for 13 points with nine boards and five blocks.

He's better with timing, a more adept passer and has done a great job at establishing position. Gobert should take some minutes away from Enes Kanter, so he's worth a look in deep drafts. Although, he needs to work on his free throws.

Jazz center Rudy Gobert had an appendectomy in California on Monday, and he's since returned to rehabilitate in Utah.

The team hasn't provided a timetable for his recovery, but assuming Gobert's appendix hadn't ruptured he should resume basketball activities in about 4-6 weeks. The 7'2" Frenchman appeared in 45 games during his rookie season, averaging 2.3 points, 3.4 rebounds and 0.9 blocks in under 10 minutes per game.

Rudy Gobert is looking to make big strides in his game over the summer.

The 7'1" French national only played in less than half of the Jazz' games this season, but is hoping that a strong summer will help him break into Utah's rotation next season. "It was important for me, just to show my progress in the season," Gobert said. "I know I didn't play that much, but I just tried to show, show them all the time. I think I did pretty good. I just can't wait for the next season and summer league, maybe more playing time." The Stifle Tower planned to go back home to France for a few weeks after the season, but will return to the United States by the end of May to start his training. Gobert has a long way to go before he's a fantasy asset, but he has the size and talent to make a difference in deeper leagues if he is able to play his way into some minutes.

The Jazz are having trouble finding room in their rotation for Rudy Gobert.

The 21-year-old Frenchman has a ton of upside, but the Jazz don't have any minutes to give to him at the moment. "Where we are right now. I mean, who you gonna play him in front of?" coach Ty Corbin said. Gobert has some value in deep dynasty leagues, but fantasy owners who are making a late-season push in redraft leagues shouldn't be paying any attention to Gobert's situation.
Mar 25 - 1:44 PM

Rudy Gobert played 31 minutes in Monday's loss and finished with eight rebounds and three blocks.

Gobert missed all four of his shot attempts and while his defensive and rebounding upside is interesting he's still very, very raw. Ty Corbin is riding Enes Kanter harder than anybody on the team right now and that's how Gobert got his time, and if that continues then Gobert could have some value starting in deeper leagues.
Feb 4 - 3:06 AM

Rudy Gobert did not play against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

He didn't get off the bench with Jeremy Evans making his season debut tonight. Gobert is extremely raw, but he's shown some promise in his rookie season. He doesn't look like he'll be making an impact this year and is only worth holding in extremely deep leagues.

Rudy Gobert had a phenomenal finish to his preseason with 16 points, nine boards, one steal and three blocks on 8-of-10 shooting in 25 minutes against the Lakers.

He had a whopping six offensive boards and put his wingspan to good use tonight. Gobert did turn the ball over five times and he does need a little more awareness in traffic. The rookie will serve as a backup to Enes Kanter and isn't worth drafting in almost any format. For what it's worth, he was selected at 262 in a recent expert draft.

Rudy Gobert blocked five shots to go with four points, 12 boards and one steal in 20 minutes against the Clippers.

Usually it's the Clippers making headlines for blocks with DeAndre Jordan, but the rookie made his presence known as an imposing presence in the paint. Gobert is a freak with a 7'9" wingspan, but his role is unclear with the team.

Rudy Gobert (shoulder) was limited in practice on Monday.

His shoulder injury has cost him some time on the court and the Jazz haven't really been using him much even before the injury. Gobert has played just a total 17 minutes this preseason and might have to start his career in the D-League.
Mon, Oct 21, 2013 05:16:00 PM

Rudy Gobert (shoulder) did not practice on Friday.

He was in uniform on Wednesday and didn't get off the bench, so this may be the reason why. Although, Gobert has played 17 minutes so far this season and has four fouls. The rookie is a freak with his 7'9" wingspan, but he's clearly a major project.
Fri, Oct 18, 2013 12:10:00 PM

Rudy Gobert grabbed 10 rebounds in Friday's loss to the Pacers, while adding six points and three blocks in 23 minutes.

He had no turnovers and no fouls in this game. Gobert's length on the floor has been one of the more interesting stories in Orlando and it's easy to see why the Jazz are so high on him. "Rudy’s a serious pro already and you guys will soon see that," GM Dennis Lindsey said. He's more of a player that should go on a fantasy watch list than a late-round draft target.

The recovery time on Rudy Gobert's foot surgery is expected to be 2-3 weeks.

He said that his shoes were too short and described his surgery as different from an ingrown toenail. Gobert looks great in this small sample size this summer and could develop into a key player for the Jazz. He put up a nice line on Thursday, scoring 11 points with eight boards and three blocks on 3-of-3 shooting against the Pacers.
Thu, Jul 11, 2013 01:38:00 PM

Rudy Gobert didn't score in roughly seven minutes of action during Wednesday's summer league game against the Nets.

Gobert did pick up two rebounds and block one shot. He's currently dealing with an ingrown toenail that will require attention after the summer league ends. Although it might appear his limited minutes were due to the injury, it's likely the Jazz simply wanted to see other players.
