Sources: Rudy Gobert Diagnosed with Grade 1 MCL Sprain

An initial evaluation of the injured left knee of Utah Jazz star center Rudy Gobert revealed a Grade 1 MCL sprain, league sources told ESPN.

X-rays on Gobert’s knee were negative, sources said. He will undergo an MRI on Saturday to confirm the initial diagnosis, and the timetable on a possible return will be clearer after that test.

Gobert went to the floor awkwardly after appearing to get rolled into by teammate Derrick Favors early in the first quarter against the Celtics. As he tried to get back to his feet, Gobert fell back to the floor and rolled to his back before clutching his left knee.

Gobert missed 11 games earlier this season with a bone bruise in his right knee.

The 7-foot-1 Gobert is averaging 12.2 points and 10.1 rebounds in 17 games for the Jazz this season.

While the Pelicans have a lot to consider with the unrestricted free agent, [DeMarcus] Cousins says he is confident that he will still be playing for New Orleans after the Feb. 8 trade deadline.

“I am confident in my team,” Cousins said. “I am starting to understand this business a lot more than I did before. You can kind of tell when things are about to come about. We’re a very competitive team. A talented team. I don’t think that will be the case at all.”

Cousins also said Davis has been in his ear about re-signing with New Orleans.

Losing is no fun for Dirk Nowitzki. But waking up and going to the gym still is.

Heck, even watching film? Still is.

While the losses have mounted in a season that has been hard to watch at times, but promising at other moments, Nowitzki opened up on Thursday and said that the 8-20 record going into Thursday’s game at Golden State has not dampened his enthusiasm.

Not for this season. Or next season.

“I’m not going to say 100 percent I’ll be back — but it’s looking like it,” Nowitzki said after the Mavericks had a morning walk-through at the Olympic Club in downtown San Francisco. “I feel fine so far. I’ve played every game. I’d love to play all 82. That would be amazing at [age] 39. We’ll see how the body feels. But so far, it’s been fine.”
