“I don’t think we’re ready to say today, tomorrow, a week, two weeks,” Snyder told to the media in Los Angeles earlier today. “I think it’s literally that wide open.”
If Gobert is unable to go for Utah tomorrow for Game 2, you can expect to see a lot of similarities in terms of Snyder’s rotation that were present in Game 1 once Gobert went out. Derrick Favors will again see an increased role off the bench, while Jeff Withey could be inserted into the starting lineup alongside Gordon Hayward and Boris Diaw in the frontcourt.
George Hill and Joe Ingles will also likely make up the backcourt again, with Rodney Hood and Shelvin Mack to serve as the main backups alongside Joe Johnson, a forward who can do it all on the basketball court.
For the 2016-2017 regular season, Gobert averaged 14.0 points, 12.8 rebounds, and 2.6 blocks per game in 81 games.
