Exum to miss a couple of weeks with ankle injury

Utah Jazz point guard Dante Exum is expected to miss "a couple of weeks" due to the ankle he sprained on Saturday in Detroit, league sources tell The Athletic. Exum is officially out tonight as the Jazz take on the Milwaukee Bucks
Tony Jones on Twitter.

Rough timing as he'd found recent form, averaging 11.2 PPG and 6 APG over his last five games, including a scoring stretch of 15, 20, 13, 8, 11 before the injury.

Tough luck again for Dante. Hopefully no permanent damage and he gets back up to speed quickly.

Amazing with the size of player and size of feet that rolling your ankle stepping on someone else's foot doesn't happen more often in the NBA.

Horrible timing. Every time he starts getting some momentum going he hurts himself.

Even worse timing considering Rubio did his hamstring yesterday

Speaking with The Pick and Roll pregame, Jazz head coach, Quin Snyder, revealed what followed in the aftermath of the injury.

"I called him last night after the incident and wanted to press upon him that this is different," Snyder revealed.

“It's important for him to know that what happened to him the other night is different. Dante has established himself, and there’s levels of establishment, but what he’s done over the last month, his game’s taken a step, and he’s taken a step.”

Quin Snyder: Dante Exum to “pick up right where he left off”
