Briscoe is dealing with a shin contusion and has been ruled out for Thursday's summer league matchup against the Jazz, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Briscoe has started all three Vegas Summer League games thus far, averaging 8.7 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steal across 18.9 minutes. However, it appears he picked up a bruised shin recently and will now be held out as a precautionary measure. While it doesn't sound like it's anything serious, there's a chance Briscoe is done for the rest of the summer league. The 6-foot-3 guard already agreed to a contract with the Magic at the start of July, so he should be heading to training camp with the organization.
Briscoe is expected to play for the Magic's summer league team over the next few weeks, though he already apparently made an impression during the team's minicamp the last few days. That earns him what is likely a training camp contract, which should give Briscoe the opportunity to battle for a final roster spot. Briscoe was dominant overseas in Estonia last season and he averaged 18.5 points, 3.4 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.6 steals in 39 games.
An undrafted free agent out of Kentucky back in 2017, Briscoe was with the Trail Blazers for training camp last season, but was ultimately let go at roster cuts. He then opted to head overseas, playing for BC Kalev/Cramo of Estonia where he averaged 18.5 points, 3.4 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.6 steals in 39 games. Briscoe now joins the Magic for summer league and his ultimate goal will be to play well enough to get another shot at training camp. While this is a good first step, Briscoe has a long ways to go before potentially making the final roster.
Briscoe poured in 11 points (5-6 FG, 1-1 FT) and added two assists and one rebound across 12 minutes in Wednesday's 113-104 preseason win over the Suns.
The undrafted rookie saw his first double-digit minutes tally over five exhibitions and acquitted himself very well, posting a preseason-high scoring total. Briscoe's solid effort notwithstanding, he still figures as a long shot for the final roster given his slotting on the backcourt depth chart.
