SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Salt Lake City Stars have waived former BYU guard Jake Toolson after he suffered a season ending foot injury in the G-League bubble.

Jake Toolson appeared in just one game for the SLC Stars down in the G-League bubble in Orlando, Florida.

Toolson made his G-League debut on February 10 as he appeared in the starting lineup for the Stars in their loss to the Erie Bayhawks. He had 5 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists in 19 minutes.

The announcement came on social media. Toolson added “Always a lesson, never a loss. Thanks for the opportunity SLC Stars.”

Toolson followed head coach Mark Pope from UVU back to BYU, where he earned WCC Newcomer of the Year in 2020.
