Minnesota Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert is questionable for Monday’s Game 2 due to personal reasons after becoming a father for the first time.

The baby boy was delivered Monday morning, sources told ESPN.

It is uncertain whether Gobert will be able to travel to Denver in time for the tip-off against the defending champion Denver Nuggets.

Gobert, a finalist to earn his record-tying fourth Defensive Player of the Year award, had 6 points, 13 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 blocks and a steal in the Timberwolves’ Game 1 win in the Western Conference semifinals series.

Gobert, an 11-year veteran who is attempting to advance to the conference finals for the first time in his career, has averaged 13.2 points, 11.4 rebounds, 1.2 blocks and 1.2 steals per game as third-seeded Minnesota opened the playoffs with five consecutive wins.

The Timberwolves have outscored opponents by 74 points in Gobert’s 175 minutes, which ranks as the second-best individual plus-minus in these playoffs.
