SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz announced that forward Joe Ingles suffered a season-ending knee injury during the team’s loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on January 30.

The Jazz said that the MRI on Joe Ingles’ knee revealed a torn ACL in his left knee. He didn’t suffer any other structural damage to his knee.

With 5:52 left in the second quarter, Ingles drove to the basket before falling to the ground after suffering a non-contact injury to his left knee.

After writhing on the court in pain, Ingles was helped to the locker room by a group of his teammates. He was unable to put weight on his leg after the injury.

Before leaving the game, the veteran forward had three rebounds and three assists in 12 minutes on the hardwood.

Utah ended up suffering a 126-106 loss to Minnesota.

During his postgame interview, Jazz acting head coach Alex Jensen commented on Ingles’ injury and the effect it had on the rest of the team.

“Losing Joe, obviously, I think has an effect on our guys,” Jensen said. “It’s not easy to lose a guy like Joe.”

Jazz guard Mike Conley said that the team had the chance to see Ingles at halftime.

“Tears in his eyes,” Conley said. “Just knowing how much this means for him, this game means to them and what we mean to him, you know, so it’s tough.

With the loss, the Jazz fell to a 30-21 record this season.

This season, Ingles is averaging 7.4 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game.

Ingles, 34, is the second-longest tenured Jazzman behind Rudy Gobert is in the final year of his contract with the team.

Utah’s next game is at home against the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday, February 2 at 8 p.m. (MDT). The game will be broadcast on AT&T SportsNet, ESPN, and The Zone Sports Network.
