NBA Playoffs 2017: Rudy Gobert will reportedly play Game 4 of Jazz vs. Clippers

Rudy Gobert‘s first trip to the playoffs began in devastating fashion, as he went down with a knee injury just 17 seconds into Game 1 against the Clippers


He was diagnosed with a hyperextension and bone bruise,
and has not played since then, missing the remainder of Game 1, along with both Games 2 and 3. According to the Jazz, however, he will indeed suit up for Game 4 in Utah Sunday night.

Prior to the game, Gobert was on the floor going through drills and testing out his knee. 

With Gobert back in the fold, it will be interesting to see how much he is able to give the Jazz.

When healthy, he’s one of the best defenders in the league, but it’s hard to imagine he’ll have the same level of quickness and leaping ability. But even still, his presence alone will be enough to deter and alter some shots. Which will be more than welcomed by the Jazz, as the Clippers are shooting over 70 percent around the basket through the first three games of the series.
