I caught up with Jazz center Rudy Gobert before tonight's tipoff. He's positive in light of his recent knee injury. https://t.co/t4t7ZZ9Odd

Gobert remains confident in Utah’s ability to win games without him.
The 25-year-old big man leads the NBA with 2.5 blocks per game.
Per the Deseret News:
“I’m confident that the team is going to win games even when I’m not here and I’ll be back stronger,” Gobert said to a handful of reporters. “It’s like an all-star break before the all-star break.
“So everything is good, I’m confident and nothing’s changed,” he added. “No team goals. No individual goals. Everything’s good.”
After learning about [Dion] Waiters’ call for him to get out his feelings, Gobert offered a witty response of his own.
“It’s not my feelings, it’s my knee,” Gobert said. “I mean, I like to play basketball so sometimes if someone takes that away from you, you’ve got to get in your feelings for a reason.”
