Sumner (knee) managed 14 points (6-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt), two assists, one rebound and two steals across 21 minutes during the Pacers' 93-88 loss to the Cavaliers in a Las Vegas Summer League contest Monday.
The 2017 second-round pick had been held out of Saturday's contest against the Spurs due to knee soreness, but he made an impressive return to action Monday. Sumner is trying to put together a strong body of work in Las Vegas after seeing just one game of regular-season action during his rookie campaign. He made only a modest impression in G-League play, averaging 7.2 points, 2.4 assists and 2.3 rebounds and 1.1 steals across 14 games (seven starts) for Fort Wayne last season.
Sumner (knee) is set to return to the lineup for Monday's summer league matchup with the Cavaliers, Scott Agness of Vigilant Sports reports.
Sumner was held out of Saturday's game against the Spurs due to right knee soreness, though summer league coach Steve Gansey said the Pacers were "just monitoring his play in a back-to-back." As a result, it appears Sumner's absence was just precautionary and he's now set to rejoin the lineup Monday. In Sumner's lone appearance in summer league so far, he posted six points (2-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-4 FT), two rebounds and three assists across 20 minutes.
Sumner is out for Saturday's summer league contest against the Spurs due to right knee soreness.
There's no indication that the injury is serious. The Pacers are likely being cautious with Sumner given the nature of summer league games. His next chance to take the floor is Monday against the Cavaliers.
Sumner produced 17 points (6-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-6 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one steal during Friday's 113-110 win over visiting Delaware.
Sumner had his best game as a Mad Ant this season, as he recorded a new season high in points and rebounds. Through nine games played with Fort Wayne, the former Xavier star is averaging 7.7 points and 2.3 rebounds.
Sumner (personal) is not present on the team's injury report ahead of Wednesday's tilt against Atlanta.
Sumner has yet to play this season, so the designation shouldn't affect the team's rotation. It seems unlikely he'll be granted a bigger role unless there are significant injuries to the team.
