Sumner will have his team option exercised by the Pacers, Scott Agness of FieldhouseFiles.com reports.
Sumner is entering the final year of his deal. He saw the biggest role of his career last season. He appeared in 53 games (24 starts) and averaged 7.5 points and 1.8 rebounds in 16.2 minutes.
Sumner posted five points (1-2 FG, 3-3 FT), two assists, one rebound and one block across 13 minutes during Thursday's 142-115 loss to the Wizards.
Sumner's minutes continued to be relatively limited to close out the season for Indiana as he played through a left knee bruise. It wasn't an ideal close to the season for the 25-year-old, who averaged career highs in 2020-21 of 7.5 points and 1.8 rebounds per game.
Sumner (knee) will play in Thursday's play-in game against the Wizards.
Sumner will be available Thursday despite a bruised left knee that has been bothering him lately. He played just seven minutes in Tuesday's win over Charlotte, and it's unclear whether he'll get closer to his season average of 16.2 minutes per game on Thursday.
Sumner (knee) is questionable for Thursday's contest against the Wizards.
A bruised left knee has been hampering Sumner. He played just seven minutes during Tuesday's play-in win over the Hornets. Even if he's cleared for Thursday's contest, it seems unlikely he'll see significant minutes.

Sumner (knee) should be able to play Tuesday against the Hornets, J. Michael of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Sumner was forced to miss the last four games of the regular season with a knee injury. With Malcolm Brogdon (hamstring) and Aaron Holiday (toe) both still listed as game-time decisions, it's likely Sumner will receive an abundance of playing time if either Brogdon and/or Holiday can't play. T.J. McConnell will also gain additional minutes if Brogdon and Holiday sit out.

Sumner (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's contest against the Lakers, Scott Agness of FieldhouseFiles.com reports.
Sumner will miss his third consecutive game Saturday and will look to return to action Sunday against the Raptors. Sumner helped take over some of Malcolm Brogdon's (hamstring) minutes. With the 25-year-old out Saturday, expect T.J. McConnell to see plenty of additional playing time and possibly even a start.

The knee issue cost Sumner a pair of games last week, but he returned to action Saturday against Washington and played a full workload (30 minutes). He also started Monday's win over the Cavs, though he was limited to 13 minutes of action. On the second half of a back-to-back, the Pacers will play it safe and hold Sumner out in hopes he can return Thursday versus Milwaukee.
Sumner tallied 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-3 FT), two rebounds, two steals and an assist across 30 minutes in Saturday's 133-132 OT loss to the Wizards.
Sumner, who missed the last two games with a knee injury, drew the start at shooting guard, as Caris LeVert took the reins at point guard to account for Malcolm Brogdon's (hamstring) absence. Now in his fourth season with the Pacers, Sumner's impact has been minimal, but this season is his best campaign yet. The frequent injury scenarios have availed Sumner with more opportunities for impact, but it still isn't enough for him to show up on the fantasy radar.

A bruised knee will keep Sumner out of action as the Pacers lose yet another contributor to injury. Sumner had started the last eight games, averaging 12.5 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.0 assists during that span.
