Exum (knee) said Thursday he hopes to be ready for the start of training camp, Eric Walden of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Exum partially tore the patella tendon in his right knee last month, and he underwent surgery on Mar. 28. While he's without a firm timetable, the oft-injured guard said he's aiming to be 100 percent by the start of camp, though he cautioned that rehabbing safely will be his top priority. The fifth overall pick in 2014, Exum played 82 games as a rookie before missing all of the 2015-16 season. He returned to play 66 games in 2016-17 but has appeared in only 66 combined games over the last two campaigns, including 42 in 2018-19.

This is a tough break for the 23-year-old point guard, who had just returned from an ankle injury. The Jazz have yet to reveal a timetable for his return, but it doesn't look good for Exum. Expect Ricky Rubio and Raul Neto to handle point guard duties until Exum returns to health.
Exum suffered a right knee injury and has been ruled out for the remainder of Thursday's game against Minnesota.
Exum was playing in just his third contest back since returning from a 25-game absence, although this time it's his knee that bothering him. More information on the specifics of the injury should emerge after further evaluation.
Exum will be on a minute's restriction for Wednesday's game against the Suns, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
This isn't too much of a surprise, as this will be Exum's second game back after a 25-game absence. He saw 15 minutes in the previous game, so he will likely play a similar role. It's unclear at this time how long he will be on a minute's restriction.
