Jazz's Dante Exum could miss season with separated shoulder, report says

Utah Jazz: 3 players with something to prove in 2017/18

The Jazz announced shortly after that Exum would not be returning to the game.

An MRI revealed a separated shoulder and ligament damage, and Jazz officials and doctors are conferring Saturday to discuss a plan of action on recovery and rehabilitation, league sources said. Exum was supposed to be an important part of the roster for the Jazz, helping to lead the second unit and serving as the backup point guard to the newly-acquired Ricky Rubio.

Injuries remain a problem for Exum, who missed all of 2015-16 with a torn ACL and dealt with tendinitis among other issues in 2016-17.


ESPN reported the injury was severe enough to jeopardize the Aussie's entire season.

As the former fifth overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, Dante Exum has unfortunately suffered significant injuries to begin his young career. With Exum out, Raul Neto, Donovan Mitchell and Alec Burks could see expanded roles. Burks scored a game-high 19 points against the Suns.

Exum averaged just 4.8 points and 2.4 assists per game during his rookie year despite starting 41 contests and wasn't much better in his third season with 6.2 points and 1.7 assists a night.
