Exum underwent successful surgery Tuesday to stabilize the AC joint in his separated left shoulder.
Following Tuesday's surgery, the Jazz opted not to provide any sort of timetable for his return, instead listing him as out indefinitely. It's widely believed that Exum will ultimately miss the entirety of the 2017-18 campaign, though the Jazz aren't quite ready to confirm that and will leave open the opportunity for a return later this season. With Exum sidelined over the first three games of the season, rookie Donovan Mitchell appears to have benefited the most, working both as a reserve point guard and shooting guard.
Exum will undergo surgery to stabilize the AC Joint in his separated left shoulder, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.
The operation is schedule for Oct. 24, so we'll likely see his timetable for a return updated shortly after. That being said, the fact that he's undergoing surgery is only further evidence that he'll likely miss the entire season, which would mark the second time in his young career that he'll sit out an entire campaign. Raul Neto and Donovan Mitchell should pick up the majority of Exum's minutes.
Exum (shoulder) is in danger of missing the entire 2017-18 season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
While Jazz officials and team doctors are still discussing possible recovery and timetable options, the possibility exists for Exum to miss the entirety of the upcoming season. Exum's young career has been rittled with injuries since he was drafted back with the fifth overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. He missed the 2015-16 campaign with an ACL tear and appeared in just 66 games last season with left knee tendinitis. More word should arrive soon on how the Jazz will plan on addressing Exum's separated shoulder. However much time he misses, expect the likes of Raul Neto and Donovan Mitchell to likely absorb the bulk of his workload.
Exum suffered a separated shoulder with ligament damage during Friday's preseason game against the Suns, Tony Jones of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
There is not yet an official timetable for his return, but he's set to miss a "significant" amount of time. More information about his recovery process should emerge within the coming days, however. As a result of his seemingly extended absence, Raul Neto and Donovan Mitchell will probably be the main candidates to absorb Exum's minutes.
Exum left Friday's preseason game against the Suns with an apparent shoulder injury, Jody Genessy of the Deseret News reports.
Exum was involved in a collision during the first quarter and immediately ran to the locker room grabbing his left shoulder. Multiple Jazz beat writers speculated that the guard may have dislocated his shoulder, but the Jazz are yet to provide an official diagnosis, and one likely won't come until he can be evaluated by team medical personnel. Exum almost certainly won't return to action Friday and should be considered day-to-day until further notice.
