Utah Jazz forward Joe Ingles suffered a torn ACL in his left knee and will miss the remainder of the season, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The team announced that Ingles will undergo surgery in the next several weeks.

The injury occurred during the second quarter of Utah’s 126-106 loss against the Minnesota Timberwolves Sunday night. 

Ingles was driving to the basket while being defended by Timberwolves guard Jordan McLaughlin. It appeared as though Ingles began to gather to go up toward the hoop and his knee gave out on him. He fell to the ground and was ultimately helped back to the locker room and did not return to the game. You can see the play below: 

Injury issues have hit the Jazz hard recently, as All-Star guard Donovan Mitchell (concussion protocol) and Rudy Gobert (calf) have both missed the past several games for Utah. As a result, the Jazz have lost five straight games and have slipped to fourth in the Western Conference standings. 

Ingles, who was the runner-up for the Sixth Man of the Year Award last year, was having another solid season for Utah. He’s averaging 7.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and 3.5 assists in 25 minutes per performance, and providing the team with a solid spark off of the bench, along with reigning Sixth Man of the Year Jordan Clarkson. With Ingles expected out for the season, the Jazz lose a key contributor off the bench who has been able to fill any role asked of him. With a week to go before the trade deadline perhaps Utah tries to make a deal to fill the hole left behind by Ingles.
