Could miss season with separated shoulder

Dante Exum Suffers Serious Shoulder Injury

Dante Exum Suffers Serious Shoulder Injury

Exum collided with TJ Warren on a drive to the basket and crashed to the floor.

The Jazz may have defeated the Suns 112-101 in their preseason game on Friday, but the bigger storyline happened when Dante Exum left the game with a left shoulder injury.

After the game, Utah coach Quin Snyder said, "If you saw his shoulder, it didn't look good".

An MRI revealed details of the injury, leaving team officials and doctors considering recovery timetables and rehabilitation options Saturday.

As the former fifth overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, Dante Exum has unfortunately suffered significant injuries to begin his young career. 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.

Shooting guard Alec Burks and Raul Neto could see an increase in playing time if Exum misses an extended period of time. He played 82 games during his first season with the Utah Jazz, starting 41 of them, and averaging 4.8 points, 2.4 assists, and 1.6 rebounds per game. That caused him to miss the entire National Basketball Association season that followed. He missed the 2015-16 campaign with an ACL tear and appeared in just 66 games last season with left knee tendinitis.
