Jazz guard Dante Exum injures hamstring in Game 4, limps off court to locker room

#Exum

Jazz guard Dante Exum suffered a hamstring injury in the third quarter Sunday on a drive to the basket.

The No. 5 overall pick in the 2014 draft pulled up on the drive, limped down the court on the next possession, and when the ball was blown dead, immediately ran to the locker room before he could even be taken out of the game.

The Jazz announced that Exum will not return to the game.

When he made it to the tunnel he immediately went down to the ground and had to be helped to the locker room unable to put weight on his leg.

Exum has dealt with numerous injuries since he was taken in the first round, but he has been key to the Jazz's defence of likely NBA MVP James Harden throughout the Western Conference semifinals.
