Nets’ Jarrett Jack suffers torn ACL against Celtics
Brooklyn Nets point guard Jarrett Jack exited in the second half of Saturday’s game against the Boston Celtics with what the team announced at the time as a right knee sprain. On Sunday, the Nets revealed that Jack had, in fact, torn his ACL and will miss the rest of the season.
In the third quarter, Jack was running down the court and awkwardly planted his leg, causing his right knee to buckle as he fell to the ground. Trainers tended to him and helped him off the court. Jack would undergo further tests after the game.
Brooklyn beat Boston 100–97 to improve to 10–23. Jack scored two points and dished nine assists in 23 minutes.
The video of his injury is below.
Jack also posted an Instagram on Saturday night following the game.
“Worst pain I’ve ever felt in my life, but we have our obstacles in life not really sure what the extent of my injury is but I’m already in the mind-set of getting back and being stronger than ever,” Jack wrote.
