SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Backup Jazz center Tony Bradley replaced Rudy Gobert in the Utah’s starting lineup against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Bradley moved into Utah’s starting lineup for the third time of his career during the Jazz vs. Thunder game on Wednesday, March 11.

The backup big man replaced NBA All-Star and Jazz center Rudy Gobert who was ruled out of the game against the Thunder due to illness.

Gobert was originally listed as “OUT” on Utah’s injury report of the Thunder game. The team later tweeted that his status was changed to questionable before Bradley ultimately got the starting nod.

Bradley is filling in for Gobert for the third time this season. All three of his career starts have come during the 2019-20 schedule. Bradley has big shoes to fill in place of Gobert.

This season, Gobert is averaging 15.1 points, 13.7 rebounds, and 2.0 blocks per game.

During his three-year NBA career, Bradley has played in 63 games for the Jazz.

In 50 games this season, the backup big is averaging 4.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 0.5 blocks in 10.7 minutes per contest.
