Edmond Sumner totaled 15 points (6-8 FG, 0-2 3PT, 3-5 FT), one rebound, one assist, and two steals in 18 minutes in the Pacers' 113-97 loss to the Bulls on Tuesday.
Sumner scored 15.0 points in the Pacers’ loss to the Bulls, making it his third consecutive game with 10.0 points or more. With Malcolm Brogdon out of the rotation, Sumner got the “call” and was able to produce a nice shooting and scoring performance as he went for 75.0 percent from the floor and 60.0 percent from beyond the arc. Given his limited role in the rotation, he doesn't warrant any fantasy consideration at this time. Should Brogdon remain out, Sumner may be worth a "Hail-Mary" play as a part of a stars-and-scrubs lineup, but outside of that, he should remain out of your roster.
Edmond Sumner scored 18 points (7-14 FG, 1-3 3PT, 3-4 FT) with three rebounds, two steals, and two turnovers across 28 minutes during Monday's 130-114 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers.
Sumner eclipsed double-digits in scoring against the 76ers on Monday, shooting 50 percent on 14 attempts and corralling three rebounds and two steals. Fantasy managers can roster Sumner as insurance to a starter but he is not a player to target in DFS contests moving forward, as the third-year point guard averages just 11.3 minutes in the Pacers' rotation this season.
Edmond Sumner totaled two points (0-1FG, 2-2 FT), one rebound, one assist, and one block in six minutes in the Pacers' 130-110 loss to the Bucks on Wednesday.
Sumner had two points in a blow-out against the Bucks. He was able to fill several categories of the stat sheet; however, his production and minuscule role in the lineup disqualify him from any fantasy consideration at this time.
Edmond Sumner started the second half in the place of Victor Oladipo (eye) and was able to produce six points (2-4 FG, 2-2 FT, 0-1 3PT) and six rebounds across 27 minutes of action during the Pacers' 101-113 loss to the Heat on Tuesday.
Sumner did as much as he could filling in for Victor Oladipo (eye), who exited in the second quarter and did not return. Although Sumner started the second half, it wouldn't surprising to see Justin Holiday start Game 2 if Oladipo is forced to miss any time. The 24-year-old guard is currently averaging 6.2 points per game in Orlando and is a non-factor in fantasy at the moment.
Edmond Sumner has been dealing with knee soreness since his final year of college. The lockdown has really helped him treat his knee. "I'm healthy. This is probably the best I've felt, especially (with my) knee," Sumner said. "The training staff say this is the best they've been treating my knee."
Sumner is having a decent season for how many minutes he is playing. This season, he is averaging 13.8 minutes, 4.6 points, 1.5 rebounds, 1.6 assists, and 0.6 steals per game. Sumner's role and minutes could be increased if Victor Oladpio decides to play or not.
