Earlier today, Jazz guard Dante Exum left a game in-which he was playing for Australia. He left the game due to a left knee injury that happened on a non-contact play. The play goes as followed down below.
Then, reports came out about how the Jazz were ‘fearing’ that Exum tore his ACL. Those reports have turned out to be true.
I am told Dante Exum was diagnosed with a torn ACL in the arena in Slovenia and the #Jazz will confirm that diagnosis ASAP

The injury to Exum could be critical to the Jazz’s playoff hopes as it was looking like that Exum was very improved this Summer, and could be looking to take the big step. It’s likely that Exum will miss the whole entire 2015-2016 season, and if he doesn’t, I’d imagine it wouldn’t be any time before the all-star break.
