Heat's Dion Waiters responds to Rudy Gobert's calling him a 'dirty player'

Utah Jazz centre Rudy Gobert will miss a minimum of four weeks of action after suffering a bone bruise Friday, the team announced Sunday. What's worse, the Jazz also lost Rudy Gobert for the next four to six weeks as he took a nasty hit from a diving Dion Waiters in the loss to the Miami Heat.

"He just dove right into my knee", Gobert told Eric Woodyard of the Deseret News.

Bucs snap 5-game losing streak, top Jets 15-10
Overall, the Jets defense didn't get off the field quick enough; they gave up two scoring drives lasting 7:56 and 7:25. Fitzpatrick has played for seven different teams during a 13-year career, including the Jets the past two seasons.

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

"I've never been a dirty player in my life", Waiters said Sunday, per Shandel Richardson of the Sun-Sentinel. "I went for the ball". With him out, Derrick Favors will get a huge boost as he'll spend more time at the five-spot and see his minutes in the 30s with regularity. I didn't even know that was him. "I went for the ball, making a basketball play". I saw it on social media, late, after the win. "If he thought it was a dirty play, you come to me as a man and you ask me and I'll tell him the same (expletive) I'm saying now. I'm not a dirty player".

England manager encouraged by emergence of Loftus-Cheek and Winks
Against the world champions, 21-year-old Ruben Loftus-Cheek caught the eye of many, impressing from midfield on his global debut. Chelsea loanee Ruben Loftus-Cheek's potential and ability was a serious threat to the likes of Cesc Fabrgeas and N'Golo Kante.

Last week wasn't exactly a pretty one for the Utah Jazz as they went just 1-2 in a trio of games that could have easily gone their way had they been able to execute just a little better.

The 2017 All-NBA Second Team center is now averaging 13.9 points, 10.5 rebounds and a league-best 2.5 blocks per game in his fifth NBA season.
