NBA Draft prospect Charles Matthews tears ACL during workout with Celtics

The former MI guard tore his ACL while working out for the Celtics, his agent told ESPN.

Matthews' agent Adam Pensack told ESPN that Matthews would have surgery in his hometown of Chicago.

The 22-year-old Matthews, who is regarded as one of the 2019 NBA Draft's better defenders, is expected to miss most or all of the 2019-20 season while his knee recovers.

Instead, Pensack said that Matthews will remain in the draft and pursue other options.

After a strong showing at the National Basketball Association combine in Chicago, Matthews was garnering interest in the second round as one of the top defenders in the 2019 National Basketball Association draft class. As a second-round selection, Matthews could bring tenacious on-ball defense once his injury heals and he gets back on the court.

Matthews averaged 12.2 points a game this past season and was a big reason why MI was one of the best defensive teams in the nation. Charles will continue that momentum when he returns to action.
