Jazz G Exum has knee surgery, out indefinitely

Utah Jazz reserve point guard Dante Exum underwent surgery to repair a partially torn patellar tendon in his right knee Wednesday and remains out indefinitely, the team announced Thursday.

Exum left last week's 120-100 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves after three minutes with what was described as knee soreness.

The extent of his injury was revealed the next day in an MRI.

Exum had returned after missing 25 games with a left ankle sprain and bone bruise.

Exum has appeared in 42 games (one start) in his fourth NBA season, averaging 6.9 points, 2.6 assists and 1.6 rebounds in 15.8 minutes. In the three games since his return, he was scoreless, with three assists and three rebounds in 27 minutes.
