Brooklyn Nets point guard Jarrett Jack will miss the remainder of the season after an MRI taken Sunday revealed that he suffered a torn ACL and a small medial meniscus tear in his right knee.

Jack suffered the injury late in the third quarter of Saturday's victory over the Boston Celtics. It was initially diagnosed as a right knee sprain.

Jack said on Instagram after the game that the injury was the "worst pain I've ever felt in my life."

Reserves Shane Larkin and Donald Sloan are the other point guards currently on the roster.

Jack, 32, finishes the 2015-16 campaign with averages of 12.8 points, 7.4 assists and 4.3 rebounds in 32 games.

He is set to make $6.3 million this season and next season, though only $500,000 of his 2016-17 salary is guaranteed.
