Utah's Rudy Gobert Thinks Dion Waiters Targeted His Knee on goal

Jazz shootaround Even without a superstar Heat are still plenty dangerous — as Jazz have found out the hard way Report: Dion Waiters's "Dirty Play" Will Cost Rudy Gobert A Month

Gobert will get re-evaluated in four weeks. Waiters was going after a loose ball, then dove awkwardly into Gobert's leg.

Gobert sat out of Saturday's 114-106 victory over the Brooklyn Nets as Derrick Favors started at the centre spot. Gobert initially called it a dirty play but took a softer stance afterward.

"I was feeling a little sore". I didn't even know that was him.

"It feels better than it looked on the video", he said. "I think it was a dirty play, but no matter what the most important thing is to keep getting better and to win tomorrow".

Waiters said he would have preferred Gobert discuss the incident in private instead of spreading his opinion on social-media.

Police investigating stabbing at Mall of America
It happened around 6:45 p.m.in the men's department of Macy's, which is not far from the mall's Santa Experience. The assailant was captured shortly after the 7 p.m. attack in the massive Bloomington mall, cops said.

After being informed of Gobert's comment, Waiters was quick to defend his character, saying that he had no intention of hurting the Jazz's center during the play, per Andre Fernandez of The Miami Herald. But it could have been potentially been a worse injury. Gobert would limp off the court, but return in the fourth quarter after being diagnosed with a right knee contusion.

The 2017 All-NBA Second Team center is now averaging 13.9 points, 10.5 rebounds and a league-best 2.5 blocks per game in his fifth NBA season.

The 25-year-old's been great defensively over his career, being named to the All-Defensive First Team and leading the association in blocks a season ago.

The Jazz are 6-7 this season.
