If it hadn't sunk in already, Utah Jazz point guard Dante Exum's knee injury became an undeniable reality on Thursday, as the team announced successful surgery to repair the ACL in Exum's left knee.

"The surgery was performed in Los Angeles by Dr. Neal S. ElAttrache of Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic following consultations with Jazz physician Dr. Travis Maak and University of Utah Health Care as well as Dr. Brian Cole of Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush in Chicago," said the release from the team.

The Jazz also announced that Exum would return to Salt Lake City to begin rehabilitation as soon as he is medically cleared to travel. There is no timetable for his return, as the Jazz explicitly stated such a plan would be established at a later date.
