Leaf (knee) is out for Friday's summer league action against the Nets.
Leaf left Wednesday's game against the Hawks due to left knee soreness, which is still giving him enough discomfort to keep him from playing two days later. There's no indication the injury is serious, however.
Leaf has been ruled out for the remainder of Wednesday's summer league contest against the Hawks with left knee soreness.
Leaf played 13 minutes Wednesday before exiting with knee soreness. The severity of the injury is unknown at this point, and this could just be the Pacers being very cautious and not wanting to risk any injuries in summer league. More information on Leaf's status should come out at the conclusion of Wednesday's game as well as throughout the rest of summer league.
Leaf now has back-to-back solid scoring performances on his Vegas resume after shooting just 2-for-14 in the opener. The 2017 first-round pick is looking to plant the seed for a much bigger role in the coming campaign after averaging just 8.6 minutes across 53 games during his rookie season, although the Pacers currently have a relatively deep collection of frontcourt talent.
Leaf finished with a team-high 17 points (7-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT) to go along with two rebounds across 30 minutes during Saturday's 86-76 summer league win over the Spurs.
After going 2-for-14 during his debut, Leaf made up for it Saturday, though was unable to match his 10 rebounds from the first game. He'll look to continue building on his efforts to garner more run for the Pacers next season.
Leaf struggled from the floor in his Las Vegas Summer League debut Friday, finishing with four points (2-14 FG, 0-4 3PT) to go with 10 rebounds in 27 minutes of action.
Last year's first-round pick didn't make much of an impact at the NBA level as a rookie, and his showing Friday wasn't exactly encouraging. Leaf will look to bounce back Saturday when the Pacers take on the Spurs.
