Canadian guard Tyler Ennis suffered a devastating blow after he was ruled out for the rest of the season with a torn Achilles.

The 26-year-old suffered the injury playing for Turk Telecom in the Turkish league, going down in the third quarter of their game against Galatasaray.

Ennis has had a tough run with injuries, breaking his leg two years ago while playing for Turkish club Fenerbahce, just five games into his European career.

After rehabbing his broken leg, Ennis spent last season playing for the Toronto Raptors' G League affiliate, the Raptors 905, where he averaged 17.1 points and 7.4 assists per game.

This season, Ennis averaged 13.6 points, 4.5 assists, and 3.4 rebounds in ten games across the Turkish League and the Basketball Champions League.

The 18th pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, Ennis has had stints in the NBA with the Phoenix Suns, Milwaukee Bucks, Houston Rockets, and Los Angeles Lakers before making the move to Europe.
