Sumner (foot) is out for Friday's summer league game against the Clippers.
Sumner's left foot soreness will keep him out for the Pacers' final summer league game. The next time we might see him is during the preseason.
Sumner (foot) will not play in Tuesday's summer league game against the Hawks.
This is hardly surprising, considering as of two days ago Sumner still was not participating in practice. Given it's summer league, the Pacers will likely not be in any rush to bring Sumner back onto the floor.
Sumner has been participating in light basketball activities but isn't practicing, J. Michael of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Sumner was cleared to play in Saturday's contest against the Grizzlies and logged 20 minutes while also scoring four points, but he appears to have re-injured his foot. He's been unable to practice since, and he'll be considered day-to-day moving forward until further notice. Sumner's next opportunity to return will come Monday against Detroit.
Sumner (foot) practiced Thursday and has been cleared to play for Saturday's summer league game, freelance sports writer Mark Montieth reports.
Sumner hadn't practiced with the summer squad due to foot soreness, but things have cleared up enough for him to play. According to Montieth, Sumner will play as much as his conditioning allows.
Sumner is dealing with foot soreness and has yet to practice with the Pacers, J. Michael of The Indianapolis Star reports.
There's a possibility Sumner could get a practice in Thursday before joining the Pacers for Las Vegas Summer League. More information on his status may arrive in the coming days.
Sumner will sign a three-year contract with the Pacers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Sumner only appeared in 23 games last season, but the Pacers apparently like what they've seen from the Xavier product, and he'll stick around on a multi-year deal that likely includes partial guarantees.
Sumner's received the qualifying offer Saturday, making him a restricted free agent, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports.
The Pacers declined Sumner's team option but offered him the qualifying offer in an attempt to restructure the guard's contract into what is hoped to be a multi-year deal. Sumner, who averaged 2.9 points and 1.0 rebounds in 9.1 minutes across 23 games last year, provides defensive versatility in the backcourt. If he resigns, Sumner could see an uptick in minutes as Indiana recently lost Darren Collison to retirement and could lose Bojan Bogdanovic during free agency.
Sumner tallied 22 points (5-14 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 9-11 FT), four rebounds, two steals and one assist across 30 minutes in Wednesday's 135-134 win over the Hawks.
Sumner had the best game of his career Wednesday night, seeing 30 minutes en route to a 22-point performance, three of those points coming in the final seconds on free-throws to give the Pacers the victory. His showing was a good audition for prospective teams looking for depth next season.
Sumner posted 34 points (13-23 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven assists, four rebounds, two steals and a block in the 122-115 loss Tuesday to the Charge.
Sumner made his return to the G League after spending just over a month with the Pacers, receiving a few starts in between as Indiana grappled with a lack of depth in the backcourt. The return to Fort Wayne means Jordan Barnett and Ike Nwamu will likely see less minutes, as the two had been essentially soaking up more playing time at small forward and shooting guard, respectively.
Sumner was assigned to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the G League on Tuesday.
While Sumner did get his two-way contracted converted into one that secures him for the rest of the season, he's fallen completely out of the rotation since the arrival of Wesley Matthews. Expect Sumner to play with the Mad Ants when able to this season so he can get some extended in-game action while riding the pine in Indiana.
Sumner signed a two-year contract with the Pacers on Monday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. The deal includes a team option for 2019-20.
A second-round pick out of Xavier in 2017, Sumner had been playing his first two seasons of professional ball on a two-year, two-way contract. The season-ending injury to Victor Oladipo (knee) resulted in being incorporated in the rotation in late January, with the swingman averaging 4.5 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.0 steal while logging double-digit minutes in the past eight contests. He was a candidate to head back to the G League's Fort Wayne Mad Ants with the newly signed Wesley Matthews slated to make his Indiana debut Monday against the Hornets, but Sumner's new deal should keep him with the parent club for the foreseeable future. Sumner is still a candidate to lose his regular spot in the rotation with the addition of Matthews, however.
Sumner posted two points (1-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 0-1 FT) and one block in 16 minutes off the bench Thursday in the Pacers' 116-92 win over the Clippers.
Sumner had a 17-point effort his last time out but otherwise has't offered much off the bench over the past five games while playing fewer than 20 minutes on each occasion. He could be bumped out of the rotation and head back to the G League's Fort Wayne Mad Ants once the Pacers finalize a contract with veteran swingman Wesley Matthews, who has committed to sign with Indiana when his buyout from the Knicks is completed.
Sumner accumulated 17 points (7-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt), two rebounds, two steals and a block in 17 minutes Tuesday against the Lakers.
Sumner didn't see a huge chunk of playing time, but he certainly made the most of the opportunities he did get by knocking down three of four shots from beyond the arc, accounting for more than half of his scoring output. He likely saw more run than usual after the Pacers jumped out to a huge lead Tuesday night, so don't expect this level of production from the 23-year-old on a nightly basis.
Sumner will come off the bench Thursday against the Magic, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports.
After a couple of lackluster performances in the starting lineup -- averaging just 4.5 points (on 17.6 percent shooting) and 4.0 rebounds in 25.0 minutes -- Sumner will give way to Cory Joseph in the starting lineup. Despite the demotion, Sumner should still see a solid dosage of minutes off the bench with Tyreke Evans (back) unavailable.
Sumner is expected to make another start Wednesday against the Wizards, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports.
The shorthanded Pacers went with Sumner at shooting guard against the Warriors on Monday, and while he struggled mightily -- 1-10 FG -- they'll give the second-year player another shot Wednesday with Victor Oladipo and Tyreke Evans sidelined. Sumner played 28 minutes Monday, while Aaron Holiday (22 minutes) also saw a slight boost in what was a lopsided contest.
Sumner totaled 2 points (1-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt), three rebounds, two blocks and two steals over 28 minutes in the Pacers' loss to the Wariors on Monday.
Sumner got his first career start with Tyreke Evans (back) out and Victor Oladipo (knee) out for the season, but he did little with his opportunity. Signed to a two-way deal, he'll be sent back to the G-League when Evans returns.
Sumner will start at shooting guard Monday against the Warriors, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports.
With Tyreke Evans (back) ruled out and Victor Oladipo (knee) done for the season, the Pacers will dig deep into their roster and move Sumner, a two-way signee, into the lineup at shooting guard alongside Darren Collison. Sumner has appeared sparingly in only a handful of NBA games this season, and he's a risky DFS play, as the Pacers will likely turn to first-round pick Aaron Holiday for increased minutes off the bench.
Sumner finished Friday's loss to the Drive with 33 points (10-19 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 9-12 FT), four assists, three steals, two rebounds and one blocked shot.
Sumner continues to the primary scorer for the Mad Ants, adding yet another 20-plus scoring outing to his growing resume. While the guard hasn't been an effective distributor, posting a paltry 3.7 assists and 3.6 turnovers in 15 games this season, the Mad Ants haven't exactly utilized efficient passing in their repertoire, with just 22 of the counting stat occurring in the aforementioned contest.
Sumner posted 30 points (12-17 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists, two steals, one rebound and one blocked shot in the 122-108 win over Stockton.
Sumner didn't provide much in the peripheral stats, but he didn't need to given his shooting acumen. Connecting on over 70 percent of his shots from the field, Sumner was easily the team's leading scorer, working off the frontcourt combo of Alize Johnson and Ike Anigbogu to get easy baskets. Sumner has quietly taken over as the Mad Ants' primary scorer, averaging 21.8 points and 48.4 percent field goal percentage in 13 games this season.
Sumner tallied 28 points, four rebounds, seven assists and three steals in the loss Wednesday to the Hustle.
Every single Mad Ants starter finished the game with double-digit points, but it was Sumner who led the charge, posting yet another 20-point scoring outing. Sumner is one of the highest scoring players in the G League and should be among one of the top options in fantasy.
