Wilcox (Achilles) has progressed to shooting, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports.
Despite waiving him, the Pacers have been helping Wilcox with his recovery. Four months after he tore his right Achilles, Wilcox appears to be making solid progress.
Wilcox spent last NBA season on a two-way contract with the Trail Blazers and spent most of his time in the G League with the Santa Cruz Warriors, where he averaged 10.4 points per game on 45.1 percent shooting form the field. Wilcox has not appeared in an NBA game since the 2016-17 season when he was with the Magic, and given the quality backcourt depth the Pacers boast this season, numerous injuries may be the only way he finds legitimate playing time with Indiana.
Wilcox generated 22 points (7-9 FG, 6-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, one assist and two steals across 26 minutes during the Pacers' 116-79 win over the Nets in a Las Vegas Summer League contest Friday.
Wilcox was lights-out from three-point range, leading to a team-high scoring total and his best effort of summer league play overall. The 27-year-old brings a solid amount of NBA experience and also enjoyed some success in the G-League last season over 12 games, turning in averages of 9.5 points (on 45.1 percent shooting) and 1.8 rebounds across 19.2 minutes. Wilcox could conceivably carve out a role in the Pacers' backcourt rotation in the coming season with a strong enough training camp and preseason.
Wilcox tallied 17 points (7-13 FG, 3-8 3Pt) and two rebounds during Saturday's 126-122 win over the Hustle.
Saturday's performance was a new season high for Wilcox in the G League this season, passing his previous mark set on Feb. 23 with 13 points. Across seven games played this season, the former Washington guard is averaging 11.3 points and 1.7 rebounds per contest with Santa Cruz.
Wilcox (knee) played 15 minutes off the bench for the G League's Santa Cruz Warriors in their 120-113 loss Tuesday over the Salt Lake City Stars. He finished with 10 points (3-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two steals and one rebound.
The appearance marked Wilcox's first action in either the NBA or G League since undergoing surgery on his right knee in October. A two-way player for the Trail Blazers, Wilcox won't be counted on to contribute much for the NBA team once he regains full conditioning. Look for Wilcox's minutes gradually pick up in his subsequent outings for Santa Cruz before potentially rejoining the Trail Blazers as a deep reserve at some point in the second half.
