Since he signed with the Utah Jazz in the days preceding the 2014-15 NBA season, the Australian forward Joe Ingles has become one of the league’s biggest draws. However, after suffering an ACL injury in the team’s last game, fans won’t see him on the court for the rest of the season due to an ACL injury.

A key player for the Jazz, Ingles drove to the basket in the second quarter against the Minnesota Timberwolves when his left knee buckled.

The Utah Jazz said in a statement that “Ingles will remain out indefinitely with surgery taking place in the next several weeks.”

Ingles is in the final year of his contract. The shocking diagnosis of a torn ACL delivered a hammer blow to Utah and Australian hoops fans when it was announced.

As with most of the NBA, the 2021-22 season has been a roller-coaster ride for Utah, although the Jazz were averaging 3.6 points per 100 possessions in 1,111 minutes compared with 1.9 a season ago.

Ingles came into Sunday’s game averaging 7.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and 3.5 assists and shot 40.8 percent from the floor and a career grand total of 35.1 percent from depth, compared with a career-high of 45.1 percent last season.
