He stayed on the court for a while, finally getting up with the help of teammates before finally putting just a bit of weight on his affected knee. He will undergo an MRI on Saturday to confirm the initial diagnosis, and the timetable on a possible return will be clearer after that test.

The Utah Jazz picked up an impressive 107-95 victory over the Boston Celtics on Friday, but it came at a cost.

Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert has been diagnosed with a sprained posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and a bone bruise in his left tibia, and is expected to be sidelined for approximately one month, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The Jazz ruled Gobert out for the night later in the first quarter. If they're to have any hope of once again shocking their opponent and coming away with a big win inside Quicken Loans Arena, they'll have to be sure to excel in the following key areas.

Favors is also out for Saturday's game against the Cavaliers with a laceration near his left eye. Snyder said Favors passed the concussion protocol.

Earlier in the season, the Heat's Dion Waiters dived into his leg while going for a loose ball, which forced Gobert to miss 11 games.

Gobert has appeared in 18 games this season, averaging 11.6 points, 9.6 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks a night.
