Jazz C Gobert to miss a month with bone bruise

Utah’s Rudy Gobert gets knocked down but comes back swinging in loss to the Miami Heat

Like Utah Jazz big man Rudy Gobert.

"It feels better than it looked on the video", he said.

"I've never been a dirty player in my life", Waiters told the South Florida Sun Sentinel prior to the Heat's game against the Pistons in Detroit.

After being informed of Gobert's comment, Waiters was quick to defend his character, saying that he had no intention of hurting the Jazz's center during the play, per Andre Fernandez of The Miami Herald. Gobert would limp off the court, but return in the fourth quarter after being diagnosed with a right knee contusion.

"I've never been a dirty player in my life", Waiters said.

Also on Sunday, Waiters responded to Gobert's claim that he made a dirty play by emphatically stating multiple times that he is not a dirty player.

Alex Azar unveiled as Trump's pick for health secretary
Azar served as HHS's No. 2 under Secretary Mike Leavitt , who said he asked Azar to oversee the department's regulatory process. Azar admirers say his industry experience should be considered an asset, not a liability.

However it's pretty clear to see that Waiters meant no harm, just merely making a hustle play.

"I didn't even know that was him", Waiters continued. At the end of the day, that (expletive) don't matter. "I just want him going for it, putting his nose on two or three more of those a game".

Gobert, averaging 13.9 points and 10.5 rebounds per game so far this season, still recorded a double-double (12 points, 12 rebounds) against Miami despite suffering the injury.

To start the year, Minnesota struggled to find continuity with their new group of players.

As it stands, the 6-7 Jazz have the third-best defensive rating (which calculates points allowed per 100 possessions) in the league, which is crucial to their success, because they also they the fourth-worst offensive rating in the National Basketball Association.
