Gobert limped off the floor and went into the locker room for examination. He was termed probable to return with a right knee contusion.
The good news is the big man returned to the game in the fourth quarter.
Gobert is one of the best defensive players in the NBA and is averaging 14.1 points, 10.4 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game this season.
