The Utah Jazz lost arguably their most important player on the first possession of their first-round series against the Clippers on Saturday.

Rudy Gobert‘s left knee collided with Luc Mbah a Moute, sending the Jazz big man immediately to the locker room.

Gobert was quickly ruled out for the rest of Game 1 and was taken for an MRI.

It was Gobert’s first playoff game of his career.

UPDATE (April 16, 2 a.m. EST): An MRI revealed a hyperextended left knee and bone bruise.
