In his absence, the Jazz will look to the likes of Jonas Jerebko to play valuable minutes. If they're to have any hope of once again shocking their opponent and coming away with a big win inside Quicken Loans Arena, they'll have to be sure to excel in the following key areas.

The Utah Jazz watched center Rudy Gobert go down hard early in Friday's night game against the Boston Celtics, and they now know the extent of his injury.

Gobert is nearly averaging a double-double, with 11.6 points and 9.6 rebounds per game.

The Utah Jazz will have to make due without their defensive centerpiece for multiple games for the second time this season.

With a record of 14-15, the Jazz now holds the ninth seed in the Western Conference. The emergence of Donovan Mitchell as one of the NBA's best rookies has certainly helped.

Gobert has had injuries to his knees already this season.

Expect more minutes from Ekpe Udoh with Gobert out and an even larger role out of Derrick Favors.

Gobert was nearly immediately ruled out for the rest of the game after playing just under two minutes.
