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

On Saturday, it was revealed he sustained a right knee contusion and he will be evaluated in four weeks.

Gobert was injured in Friday night's loss to Miami, after Dion Waiters rolled into Gobert during the third quarter.

Two days after being accused of making a dirty play, Heat guard Dion Waiters defended himself.

"I was feeling a little sore".

Eight-year-old dies after drag racing crash
Anita's father Ian posted, "Our angel setting off on what was meant to be a day to remember ... my heart is in a million pieces". Competitors in junior drag racing can range in age from 8 to 17 and are placed in three classes depending on experience.

Waiters, who wasn't called for a foul on the play, responded by saying, "I've never been a dirty player in my life". Moreover, the play was over in a split second, and that's a short time to redirect your thinking from "I'm going to get this loose ball" to "let me injury the Jazz's best player".

Gobert, averaging 13.9 points and 10.5 rebounds per game so far this season, still recorded a double-double (12 points, 12 rebounds) against Miami despite suffering the injury. He tweeted, "Dove for the ball right ..." accompanied by video of the play.

The 25-year-old's been great defensively over his career, being named to the All-Defensive First Team and leading the association in blocks a season ago. The Jazz are sitting at 6-7, a part of the jumble of also-rans expected to compete for the last few playoff spots in the West. Gobert gives the Jazz their identity-without him, they're a plodding, low-wattage offense without any particular interior defensive oomph.
