SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – In the wake of a huge Utah snowstorm that closed several roads in the valley, the Utah Jazz cancelled their morning shootaround prior to their game against the Portland Trail Blazers.

Apparently Jazz center Rudy Gobert didn’t get the message.

Twitter user and Jazz fan Taylor Griffin made note of the hilarious miscommunication by checking Twitter and Gobert’s Instagram Story.

A Series Of Unfortunate Events

The Jazz cancelled their typical morning shootaround around 8:45 a.m.

About an hour later, Gobert began an Instagram Story of the weather conditions from his car with the caption, “On my way to shootaround.”

An hour after that, Gobert sent out another story with the caption, “We made it.”

Obviously, there was a miscommunication.

Roads Closed

Due to the storm, Parleys Canyon and Little Cottonwood Canyon were both closed. Rallies in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day at Westminster College and the University of Utah were both cancelled as well.

Game Still On

The game against the Trail Blazers is still set to tip off Monday night at 7 p.m. The game will be broadcast on AT&T SportsNet.
