The Minnesota Timberwolves are in action on Monday night as they face the Houston Rockets at 8 p.m. ET. One player's status to keep an eye on ahead of tip-off is Rudy Gobert, who's missed each of Phoenix's last three games with a groin injury.

Rudy Gobert Injury Update (1/23/2023)

It's another questionable tag for Gobert, who has been unable to find the court in the last week. Gobert suffered this injury on Jan. 14 while playing the Cleveland Cavaliers. He played very limited action in Minnesota's next game against the Utah Jazz, but has been out three straight contests now.

Furthermore, Gobert did not even dress when the Timberwolves played Houston on Saturday.

Rudy Gobert Fantasy Outlook and Prop Bets Today

Gobert does not have any prop bets listed on FanDuel Sportsbook's current NBA odds, perhaps telling of the doubt that he'll suit up on Monday. FanDuel also does not have props listed for Naz Reid, who has seen starts during Gobert's absence.

The center is listed as an option on FanDuel's DFS market at a price tag of $7,000. Considering the doubt around his status, it's probably safe to stay away. Although Reid has grabbed starts in his absence, his $5,800 price tag is too lofty for a player averaging just 20.8 DFS points per game. Saving your money for Anthony Edwards ($8,900), who has been on a tear (70.2 DFS points last time out) with Minnesota's injuries piling up, is a better idea.
