McKinney-Jones was merely a training camp body for the Pacers and he wasn't able to participate in the preseason schedule due to a shoulder injury, which certainly hurt his chances of making the final roster.

McKinney-Jones will not play during Wednesday's preseason game against the Bucks due to a shoulder injury, Scott Agness of VigilantSports.com reports.

He started all 48 games for the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the G-League last season, posting 16.6 points, 4.9 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.1 steals across 35.7 minutes per game. The team will seemingly want to get an in-game look at him, but it won't come Wednesday.
