Approaching the start of the 2019-20 season there had been a little bit of speculation surrounding Dante Exum and his recovery status. Nobody was really sure if he would be ready for the season opener or not, probably depending on how he was rehabbing and getting back into basketball shape. The speculation was cleared up, at least for now, when the Jazz ruled Exum out for tomorrow night’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

It’s sad to see that the recovery process didn’t go as quickly as he probably wanted to and be ready for the season-opener. That was probably the main goal over the off-season was to get healthy for the upcoming season. It’s also always rough when players start out the season on the injury report. Even though it’s considered a minor setback, Exum still has plenty of time to make sure that he’s completely 100%, and he absolutely should do just that. Here’s to a complete recovery, and a healthy Dante Exum. We’ll miss you tomorrow night Ex.
