Nets' Jarrett Jack (ACL) to miss remainder of 2015-16 season
Saturday January 2nd, 2016

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.

“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.

Entering Saturday, Jack was averaging 13.2 points and 7.3 assists in 31 games this season.
