The Heat held on for an 84-74 victory.

Jazz center Rudy Gobert was examined Saturday by the Utah Jazz medical staff and underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) testing.

Now, he'll apparently miss the next four to six weeks.

Gobert's injury stems from a collision with Dion Waiters, or rather, Waiters crashing into Gobert's parked knees in the third quarter as Waiters lost his balance trying to corral a loose ball on Friday night.

The company wants to sell the chips in everything from Internet of Things ( IoT ) devices and cars to phones and tablets. Regulators are already scrutinizing Qualcomm's $38-billion acquisition of automotive chipmaker NXP Semiconductors NV.

Following the game, Gobert called out the Heat shooting guard and called it a "dirty play".

"I was feeling a little sore".

"Every time I get hurt, the best thing to do is to try to walk right away", Gobert said after the game on Friday.

The team says Gobert will be reevaluated in four weeks.

Missouri AG investigating Google for antitrust violations
The FTC, though, did not bring the stronger antitrust charges that Google rivals such as Microsoft Corp. and Yelp Inc. sought. Hawley's office said Missouri's strong consumer-protection laws could help with a potential lawsuit over user data.

Waiters clearly didn't appreciate Gobert's accusation. Gobert suffered a bone bruise on the play. But it could have been potentially been a worse injury.

Over the course of 33.8 minutes per night, the 7-1 Gobert is averaging 13.9 points and 10.5 rebounds per game this season.

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.

As it stands, the 6-7 Jazz have the third-best defensive rating (which calculates points allowed per 100 possessions) in the league, which is crucial to their success, because they also they the fourth-worst offensive rating in the National Basketball Association.
