Young Australian basketball star Dante Exum has started running again for the first time since suffering a season ending ACL injury earlier this year.

Exum sustained the injury in August while playing for Australia against Slovenia.

The 20-year-old has begun running on an anti-gravity treadmill that allows him to place less stress and pressure on his knee while returning to full movement.

The Utah Jazz point guard is hoping to return to full fitness in time for the Rio Olympics in August next year.
