Analysis: Exum was injured in a preseason game against the Phoenix Suns on Oct. 6 when he landed awkwardly on the floor. The 2014 No. 5 overall pick was hoping to have a career year as a restricted free agent. Coach Quin Snyder was playing Exum as a point guard and off guard this season. This is the second significant injury of Exum's short career. A torn ACL kept him from playing in 2015-16. Exum averaged 6.2 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.7 assists last season.
