The Jazz confirmed Gobert underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) testing, which revealed a sprained posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) in his left knee and a bone bruise and that the center would be reevaluated in two weeks.
Gobert was rolled into by teammate Derrick Favors while grabbing a rebound less than two minutes into Friday’s 107-95 win over the Celtics in Boston and did not return.
Gobert, who recently missed 11 games with a bone bruise in his right knee, is averaging 12.2 points and 10.1 rebounds this season.
