Rudy Gobert had funny Instagram post after being ejected
Rudy Gobert wasn’t much help for his Utah Jazz teammates in their win over the Houston Rockets Thursday night, as the big man was ejected just three minutes into the game following an outburst. That does not, however, mean his work was done.
After he was tossed for smacking a drink off the scorer’s table in protest of an offensive foul call, Gobert decided to hit the weight room. We know this because he shared a hilarious photo of himself on his Instagram story — one in which he was shirtless with the game on in the background.

You know you got ejected early when you’ve worked up a sweat lifting weights and there are still more than five minutes remaining in the first half.
Gobert picked up his first foul just one second into the game, so you can understand why he was worked up. That said, he was already fined earlier in the week for criticizing the officials following Sunday’s game against the Miami Heat. His wallet’s going to be even lighter going forward.
