Utah Jazz guard Dante Exum separated his left shoulder and suffered ligament damage in Friday's preseason game against the Phoenix Suns.

A report by ESPN stated that the injury took place during a drive to the basket, with Exum winding up on the floor in pain. After Utah's 112-101 victory, Jazz head coach Quin Snyder admitted that Exum's injury "didn't look good".

Missing the entire 2017-18 National Basketball Association season won't help with his development, though, and the Utah Jazz may start hearing murmurs about this draft selection turning into a bust.

An MRI revealed details of the injury, leaving team officials and doctors considering recovery timetables and rehabilitation options Saturday.
