Rudy Gobert's injury status


Injury Status: Active

UPDATE (Apr. 25):

Rudy Gobert will play against the Nuggets on Tuesday.

UPDATE (Apr. 21):

Rudy Gobert (back) is questionable for Friday’s Game 3 against the Nuggets.

UPDATE (Apr. 19):

Due to back spasms, Rudy Gobert is questionable for Game 2 of the Western Conference First Round against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

UPDATE (Apr. 16):

Gobert is questionable for Sunday’s game against Denver due to back spasms.

Gobert was also listed as questionable for Friday’s Play-In Game against the Thunder, but he persevered and finished with a double-double in 33 minutes. Given that he did not have any intensity constraints on Friday, he is likely to play despite the injury again unless he suffers a recurrence before the game.

UPDATE (Apr. 14):

Rudy Gobert was suspended for the Lakers loss, but he is now in danger of missing Friday’s game due to back spasms.

When he met with reporters on Thursday, Timberwolves coach Chris Finch described Gobert as “uncertain.”

Gobert claimed that his back problems were so severe that he would have missed the Lakers game if he hadn’t been suspended.

UPDATE (Apr. 11):

Rudy Gobert has been suspended for Tuesday’s game against the Lakers for his altercation with Kyle Anderson.

UPDATE (Apr. 09):

Rudy Gobert is ready for Sunday’s game against the Pelicans.

UPDATE (Apr. 08):

Rudy Gobert will play on Saturday’s game against the Spurs.

UPDATE (Apr. 04):

In the loss to Portland Rudy Gobert played 35 minutes and contributed 10 points (5-10 FG), 15 rebounds, and three assists.

Gobert posted a double-double, leading the NBA in boards while also scoring in double figures as one of five Timberwolves.

In seven of his last 10 contests, including his last two, Gobert has recorded a double-double.

UPDATE (Apr. 02):

Rudy Gobert will play on Sunay’s game against the Blazers.

UPDATE (Mar. 29):

Rudy Gobert is ready to play on Wednesday’s game against the Suns.

In the victory over the Kings, Rudy Gobert grabbed 16 boards and scored 16 points.

For the second time in his last six games, Gobert finished with at least 15 points, 15 rebounds, and 2 blocks. The veteran center has posted those numbers while playing an average of 33.8 minutes per game: 14.8 points, 14.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.8 blocks.

UPDATE (Mar. 26):

Rudy Gobert hasn’t been in great shape as of late, and he may not be able to play in this game. Sooner rather than later, I hope he finds his footing again.

UPDATE (Mar. 22):

Rudy Gobert is expected to continue playing today barring any unforeseen circumstances. I’m crossing my fingers that he can turn around his recent poor performance tonight.

UPDATE (Mar. 20):

Rudy Gobert might not be able to play on Monday in New York because of an ankle injury.

Gobert has been listed as “questionable” for the last four Timberwolves games, but he has been playing through an ankle injury, so he feels more like “probable” than “questionable.”
