Aaron Holiday (upper respiratory infection) returned to the court on Tuesday against the Wolves, scoring nine points and dishing out four assists in 17 minutes off the bench.
Fellow point guard T.J. McConnell (10 points and eight assists in 20 minutes tonight) has been soaking up enough of the point-guard minutes, that Holiday's role isn't simply the full-time backup point guard that many fantasy players hoped. Edmond Sumner (upper respiratory infection) also played after previously being listed as questionable. Sumner had 11 points and four assists in 26 minutes off the bench.

Edmond Sumner (illness) has been upgraded to questionable to face the Wolves on Tuesday.
We should have an official word on Sumner's availability shortly. Sumner is a name to file away in deep-leagues should time open up.

Edmond Sumner (illness) is doubtful to play on Tuesday.
There's a bug going around Indiana's locker room but this shouldn't sideline Sumner for very long. He's definitely a name to file away in deep-league drafts.

Edmond Sumner (sore left foot) and Goga Bitadze (visa) will not play in Thursday's Summer League game.
Both players have yet to suit up in Vegas, and it seems unlikely that either will return for the elimination round. Aaron Holiday (sore left hip) and Brian Bowen (sore back) are available after sitting out on Tuesday.

The Pacers are ruling out Aaron Holiday (sore left hip) Goga Bitadze (visa), Edmond Sumner (sore left foot) and Brian Bowen II ( sore back) as out for Tuesday's Summer League game against the Hawks.
Holiday has had a productive Summer League as he looks to take on a bigger role next season until Victor Oladipo returns. Bitadze is another player looking to crack the rotation, but he hasn't gotten a chance to play yet because of visa issues. The Pacers' deep-reserves on the Summer League team will get the chance to shine against the Hawks.

Edmond Sumner (sore left foot) will not play on Monday against the Pistons.
Sumner is dealing with a minor foot injury and the Pacers won't push him. They've added two point guards this summer, so while the team liked Sumner enough to give him a three-year deal, it's unlikely that he climbs above third on the point guard depth chart.

Edmond Sumner (foot) may not be able to play in Monday's Summer League game.
Sumner hurt his left foot when he accidentally stepped on someone else's foot on Saturday. He was able to do some light work on Sunday and doesn't figure to be available if he isn't 100 percent. Even so, it's not a serious injury and Sumner has an outside shot at rotation minutes this season.

Edmond Sumner has agreed to a three-year deal with the Pacers.
This was expected, as Indiana purposely did not pick up Sumner's $1.5 million option for next season so they could work out a longer-term deal. Sumner has developed nicely, if anonymously, since recovering from a torn ACL in his final season of college. He appeared in 23 games last season and held up well when the Pacers were dealing with lots of backcourt injuries, so it's possible he earns a rotation spot this year.

The Pacers have yet to pick up Edmond Sumner's $1.5 million option for next season because they would like to iron out a longer-term deal, per J. Michael of the Indianapolis Star.
Picking up the option would make Sumner a free agent next summer, and the Pacers seem ready to commit to him as a member of the rotation. He will have an opportunity to earn minutes this year after serving as the fourth point guard last season and is worth remembering in deeper leagues. He only appeared in 23 contests but did have a couple nice games along the way when other guards were injured.

Edmond Sumner came up clutch against the Hawks in Wednesday's 135-134 win in Atlanta, scoring 22 points in 30 minutes, including three clutch free throws that sealed the win.
Sumner suited up for 23 games in his first full NBA season, and was outside the top-450 in value. He is not a fantasy asset heading into next year.

Edmond Sumner (bruised left knee) will not play on Tuesday against the Bulls.
Sumner flirted with fantasy relevance when Tyreke Evans was out and Wesley Matthews was a Knick, but he's completely off the radar now.

The Pacers announced on Tuesday that they have assigned guard Edmond Sumner to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the G League.
While Sumner did get his two-way contracted converted into a regular one, he's fallen completely out of the rotation since the arrival of Wesley Matthews. Sumner will continue to play with the Mad Ants and can be cut in deep redraft leagues.

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.
