Waiters was going after a loose ball, then dove awkwardly into Gobert’s leg. He later tweeted, “Dove for the ball right…” with video of the play. Waiters told the Sun-Sentinel on Sunday that he’s never been a dirty player and, “Tell him to get out of his feelings and that’s what it is, just like that.” “It’s not my feelings, it’s my knee,” Gobert said Monday. “That’s a little more important. “I like to play basketball. Sometimes if someone takes that away from you, you’ve got to get in your feelings for a reason.”

Two days after being accused of making a dirty play, Miami Heat guard Dion Waiters defended himself. Before Sunday’s game against the Detroit Pistons, Waiters said there was nothing intentional about a collision with Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert Friday night. The players crashed into each other when Waiters tried to dive for a loose ball in the third quarter. “I’ve never been a dirty player in my life,” Waiters said. “I went for the ball. Tell him to get out of his feelings and that’s what it is, just like that.”

Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert sat out Saturday night’s 114-106 win over the Brooklyn Nets with a right knee contusion. Gobert, who had been listed as questionable, injured the knee in Friday’s loss to Miami after colliding with Heat guard Dion Waiters going for a loose ball in the third quarter. Gobert limped off the court following the collision and called it a “dirty play” afterward, according to the Deseret News. “It feels better than it looked on the video,” Gobert said after the game. “I think it was a dirty play, but no matter what, the most important thing is to keep getting better and to win tomorrow.”
