Nets lose Jack for season after right knee surgery


NEW YORK: Brooklyn Nets guard Jarrett Jack underwent successful right knee ligament reconstruction surgery and is expected to fully recover in time for next season, the NBA club announced Wednesday (Thursday in Manila). The 32-year-old American, who has played for seven teams over 11 seasons, suffered the injury in the second half at Boston on January 2. Jack, set to be paid $6.3 million this season and next, started in all 32 of his appearances for Brooklyn this season, averaging 12.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and a team-high 7.4 assists. At 10-28, the Nets are on a five-game losing streak and have the third-worst record in the NBA, 10 games behind Orlando for the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
