Report: Jazz's Joe Ingles Diagnosed with Torn ACL After Knee Injury; Out for Season
Utah Jazz forward Joe Ingles has been diagnosed with a torn left ACL and will miss the remainder of the season, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
Ingles suffered the non-contact injury during the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. He was going in for a layup as his knee buckled before he hit the court in pain.
Ingles entered Sunday's game averaging 7.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and 3.5 assists while shooting 40.8 percent from the floor and 35.1 percent from deep.
Ingles has been durable through his eight-year career. He has appeared in 82 games three times and in at least 67 games in each season entering the 2021-22 campaign.
Though he plays off the bench behind Royce O'Neale, losing Ingles hurts Utah's depth. Behind O'Neale and Ingles, the Jazz rotate Danuel House Jr. and Elijah Hughes.
The Jazz hold a 30-21 record, fourth-best in the Western Conference and 11 games behind the Phoenix Suns for first place. With Ingles out, Utah's depth players will need to fill the void.
