Brooklyn Nets point guard underwent successful surgery to repair his ACL on Wednesday morning. The surgery was conducted at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan by Nets team doctor Riley J. Williams and Dr. David Altchek. A full recovery is expected, and Jack should be ready in time for the 2016-17 season.
Here's more from the team's update:
Jack, who sustained the injury during the second half of the Nets’ game at Boston on Saturday, January 2, played and started in 32 games for Brooklyn this season, and posted averages of 12.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and a team-high 7.4 assists per game.
A few additional, interesting notes.
Note: the Nets have routinely mentioned $40 million in cap room this offseason, which only adds up if they buy out Jack’s deal.— devin kharpertian (@uuords) January 13, 2016
Jarrett Jack contract has a $500,000 guarantee for next season. https://t.co/H1tv2dJC45— NetsDaily.com (@NetsDaily) January 13, 2016
We wish Jack a healthy recovery, and will see what the Nets decide to do this summer with their starting point guard.
