    Neither Edmond Sumner nor Aaron Holiday left the bench in Monday's win over the Hornets.

    There goes that. Wes Matthews arrived and played 30 minutes, knocking both Sumner and Holiday from the rotation. If you were holding on in deep leagues, you can feel free to hunt for alternatives now.

    The Pacers have signed Edmond Sumner to a two-year NBA contract.

    The two-way player has stepped up in the absence of Victor Oladipo and the Pacers obviously liked what they have been seeing. The former second-round pick should continue seeing solid rotation minutes, but is not worth owning in fantasy.

    In his first career NBA start, Edmond Sumner shot 1-of-10 from the field and took part in the Pacers worst loss of the season but the team will be patient with him moving forward.

    Victor Oladipo is out for the year while Tyreke Evans is slowly recovering from a minor car accident as the Pacers are currently desperate for any backcourt help. Defensively, the Xavier product was a menace on Monday, tipping passes and harassing ball-handlers and the expectation is that Sumner, who is a fast-learner, will be able to get up to speed quickly. Nate McMillan did not sound optimistic about Evans returning to the Pacers during their upcoming four-game road trip, which begins Wednesday in Washington, so Sumner will continue to start and is worth a speculative add in deeper leagues.

    Edmond Sumner started on Monday and scored two points on 1-of-10 shooting with three rebounds, two steals and two blocks against the Warriors.

    Sumnder is on a two-way deal and started in place of the injured Tyreke Evans (lower back soreness) but put up a dud against the Warriors. The 1-for-10 shooting is awful, but the defensive numbers show some promise. He's just a guy to keep on your radar in deep leagues at the moment.

    Edmond Sumner is starting for the injured Tyreke Evans against the Warriors on Monday.

    Evans is dealing with lower back soreness after he was involved in a minor car accident. Sumner leapfrogs Aaron Holiday in the rotation to allow Holiday the chance to work in a more comfortable role with the second unit. Holiday still has the better outlook going forward but Sumner is at least a DFS option tonight.

    Edmond Sumner (sore right hamstring) is questionable to face the Bucks on Wednesday.

    The injury won't have an impact in fantasy leagues after Sumner has been leapfrogged by Aaron Holiday in the rotation. He had a few nice games in the preseason but Indiana just has too much guard depth.

    Edmond Sumner will play on Wednesday night after appearing on the injury report with a groin issue.

    Sumner is on a two-way deal but has been one of Indiana's best players throughout the exhibition season. Owners in 30-team leagues can throw a dart his way but his fantasy utility is minimal in anything shallower than that.

    Edmond Sumner is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's preseason game because of a groin injury.

    Sumner was questionable for Monday's game because of a sprained left ankle and is now dealing with a groin problem. It's likely that he sustained the injury in Monday night's game, though he did play well with 14 points, three steals and three assists. The two-way contract player has quietly been one of the league's top preseason performers and has certainly played his way into Indiana's plans for his 45 NBA days.

    Edmond Sumner played well on Monday hitting 5-of-6 shots and both triples to finish the evening with 14 points, three steals, three assists and a board.

    Last game it was Aaron Holiday lighting up the opposition so it seems like the Pacers have two young point guards who will be threats for rotation minutes this year. For now feel free to log this as nice to know, there’s no need to draft either guy unless you’re handcuffing Darren Collison in a deep league.

    Edmond Sumner's sprained left ankle has him listed as questionable for Monday night's preseason game.

    Sumner left Saturday's preseason game and didn't return. He's battling for the third point guard spot with rookie Aaron Holiday and has played pretty well, though Holiday's draft pedigree leaves him with the slight edge for now. It's not a spot that should yield much fantasy value either way.

    Edmond Sumner suffered a sprained left ankle in Saturday's preseason game and will not return.

    Sumner has looked good in his preseason action so far so this is a tough break. He finished tonight with six points and an assist in 13 minutes but is not on the fantasy radar.

    Edmond Sumner scored 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting with two boards, two steals and a block on Thursday.

    Sumner missed most of last season because of injuries, but looked spry tonight. He'll have to compete to earn any significant minutes, but it's good to see his NBA career get back on track.

  • Edmond Sumner - PG - Indiana Pacers

    Edmond Sumner made his NBA debut on Tuesday night, logging two minutes and picking up two points and a rebound.

    Sumner was one of Indiana's second-round picks in this past draft, coming off the board at 52nd overall. He worked his way back from a January 2017 ACL tear and March surgery to get himself drafted, and tonight represented the culmination of his commendable efforts even if it was only a short stint on the court.
