Rudy Gobert managed just five points and eight boards with no steals or blocks in Friday’s loss to the Spurs.
It’s not surprising that any non-elite player struggles against the Spurs so we’re not going to go in too hard on Rudy tonight. We will, however, point out that he’s hitting just 58 percent of his free throws on just over six attempts per game and the 1.8 blocks per contest aren’t cutting it. After last year’s disaster this is actually a very good buy low moment, as Gobert looks a lot more mobile than he did last season and he should threaten top-50 value.
