UPDATE (Mar. 20):

Due to an ankle injury, Rudy Gobert may not be able to play on Monday in New York.

Gobert’s participation in Friday’s game against the Bulls is questionable because of a sprained left ankle.

Gobert’s availability for Monday’s game against the Hawks is in question due to a left ankle strain.

Gobert rolled his ankle in the fourth quarter on Friday, but he was able to play through the discomfort. Since then, though, the injury seems to have ballooned.

He hopes to give Monday’s shootaround for his ankle injury a shot, but if he can’t play, Naz Reid is a solid choice for both spot starts and streaming.
