Exum (knee) mustered nine points (2-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds and two assists across 16 minutes in the Jazz's 123-112 preseason win over the Trail Blazers on Sunday. Exum's return from a two-game absence was a successful one, as he was considerably more productive than in his one other exhibition appearance back on Sept. 29. The 23-year-old projects to serve as Ricky Rubio's primary backup once again in the coming campaign after demonstrating drastic improvement in his shot last season over a small 14-game sample (career-high 48.3 percent success rate).
Exum (knee) is no longer listed on the injury report ahead of Sunday's preseason tilt with the Trail Blazers, Eric Walden of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Exum missed back-to-back games with a sore knee, but tested it out during Sunday's morning shootaround and has officially been given the go ahead for a return. He should slot back in as Ricky Rubio's backup at point guard and could also play some shooting guard as well.
Exum (knee) will be held out of Friday's game against Adelaide, Eric Walden of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Exum will miss a second straight contest as he continues to nurse a sore right knee. The issue isn't anything too serious, but the Jazz will exercise caution given Exum's injury history.
Exum is dealing with a sore right knee and has been ruled out for Tuesday's preseason game against the Raptors, Andy Larsen of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Exum was limited to just 14 games last season, so despite this latest injury simply being listed as soreness, his absence is still somewhat concerning. Following Tuesday's contest, the Jazz don't play again until Sunday against the Trail Blazers, which should give Exum roughly a week off for additional rest and recovery. It's unclear at this point in time if Exum is in danger of missing additional contests, so consider him day-to-day for the time being.
Exum posted three points (1-3 FG, 1-2 3Pt), six assists, a rebound and a blocked shot over 21 minutes in Saturday's 130-72 win over the Perth Wildcats. After signing a three-year extension with the Jazz it's a safe bet that he'll keep a foothold on second-unit tasks at point guard behind Ricky Rubio. As he enters his fourth year with the Jazz he should be considered an afterthought barring an injury to Rubio or Donovan Mitchell. Those playing in preseason DFS could see him as a sleeper GPP pick, however.
