Dante Exum to Make Jazz Season Debut vs. Suns After Shoulder Injury Recovery

Utah Jazz guard Dante Exum will make his season debut in Thursday night’s game against the Phoenix Suns, the team announced Wednesday.

Exum, 22, has missed Utah’s first 68 games after suffering ligament damage and separating his shoulder in an October preseason game against Phoenix. The injury was considered bad enough that it put his entire season in jeopardy.

However, Exum returned to practice with the G League’s Salt Lake City Stars this week in preparation for making his debut. He averaged 6.2 points and 2.0 rebounds per game in 2016-17.
