Now the rookie forward has progressed to eyeing a specific date for his return, which Hart said on Spectrum SportsNet is March 30 against the Milwaukee Bucks: “Definitely a possibility. Last week was a little rough. The tissue was a little sore and that kind of thing, but now the flexibility of it is starting to get there and the swelling is going down. I’m definitely targeting that game to try and get out there. Hopefully sooner, but definitely targeting that game.”

Ask his teammates, and they marvel at Gobert’s incomparable length that seems to cover the entire paint. Ask Derrick Favors, and he’ll admit he often thinks, “Rudy just saved my ass,” during games. Ask Jazz head coach Quinn Snyder, and he’ll give a 90-second case for Gobert as Defensive Player of the Year. “Objectively, Rudy’s the guy,” Snyder tells SB Nation.
“If you look at efficiency rating, which is empirically what we look at to see how a team’s playing defensively, it’s directly attributable to your wins and losses on the court,” Snyder says. “If he gets 10 blocks, that’s great, but our [defensive] efficiency is 90, then the probability of us winning is probably about 90, too. And that’s Rudy.”
