SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz forward Joe Ingles announced on Twitter that his son, Jacob, has been diagnosed with autism.

Ingles married his wife, Renae, a former professional netball player in 2015. The couple gave birth to twins, Jacob and Milla in 2016.

The Australian Jazzman joined the team just before the start of the 2014 season after spending the preseason with the Los Angeles Clippers. In five seasons with the Jazz, he holds a 7.7 points per game average and has established himself as one of the NBA’s best 3-point shooters.
