Initial X-rays were negative, but Gobert, who is averaging 12.2 points and 10.1 rebounds this season, had an MRI on his knee Saturday. The Vertical first reported the updated diagnosis and timeline.
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. As he tried to get back to his feet, Gobert fell back to the floor and rolled to his back before clutching his left knee.
Athletic trainers briefly attended to Gobert’s left leg on the court before teammates picked him up and attempted to carry him to the bench. Gobert limped when he tried to walk under his own power.
He missed 11 games earlier this season with a bone bruise in his right knee.
