Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

AUS­TRALIAN teenager Dante Exum has been ruled out of the Utah Jazz’s next NBA Sum­mer League game af­ter sprain­ing his an­kle.

The 19- year- old from Mel­bourne im­pressed in a 100- 82 win over the Bos­ton Celtics on Mon­day, scor­ing 20 points, five re­bounds and five as­sists.

With two min­utes left Exum drove to the bas­ket, landed on an op­po­nent’s foot, rolled his left an­kle and was left gri­mac­ing on the floor.

The Jazz an­nounced Exum would not play against the San An­to­nio Spurs’ Sum­mer League squad on Tues­day, with spec­u­la­tion the team may keep him out of the rest of the tour­na­ment.
