More on Dante Exum Injury

Exum suffered a left knee injury on Aug. 4 while competing for the Australian National Team in a game against the Slovenian National Team in Ljubljana, Slovenia. After returning to Salt Lake City, he underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at University of Utah Health Care’s Orthopaedic Center this morning. Following the examination, Jazz physicians Dr. Travis Maak and Dr. David Petron determined that Exum sustained a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his left knee.
Jazz teammate and fellow Boomer Joe Ingles spoke to Exum soon after he suffered the injury from Sydney. "He was obviously pretty down," said Ingles, who is sitting out the Boomers' qualifying campaign to recover from a tough first NBA season. "It didn't look great but obviously you hope for the best and hope it's not (a torn ACL). "Me and Dante are really good mates, roommates, and obviously playing in Utah this year, it was another step of our friendship.
Jody Genessy: Initial concern is that Dante Exum might have suffered a torn ACL in his left knee, per a source. Jazz will know more when he's evaluated.
Basketball Australia will hold a press conference on Friday at 1030am when the Boomers return. Further details will be about the press conference will be provided later today. The entire Basketball Australia family wishes Dante Exum well on his return to Utah and hopes for positive news on his injury.
