Edmond Sumner (hip) will be out for Sunday's game against the Orlando Magic.
Sumner will miss Sunday's game because of a hip injury that he's dealing with. It's not thought to be a major issue, but it's enough for him to miss some time. He doesn't get a lot of work even when healthy, so his absence won't have a big impact on Brooklyn's rotation against the Magic.
Edmond Sumner (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Orlando Magic.
Sumner is a recent addition to Brooklyn's injury report, being listed with a hip injury that will leave him questionable to play on Sunday. He doesn't get a lot of work in the Nets' rotation even when healthy, so his possible absence won't have a big impact on any fantasy-relevant players for Brooklyn.
Edmond Sumner scored 23 points (9-17 FG, 2-3 3PT, 3-3 FT) while also grabbing five rebounds, blocking one shot, and dishing out three assists in the Nets' 124-116 loss to the Clippers.
Sumner has made the most of increased playing time over his last two games for the Nets, averaging 26.0 points in 36.0 minutes per game in that span. The 27-year-old's role will be one to watch for fantasy owners as the trade deadline nears, averaging 7.4 points per game so far this season.
Edmond Sumner led the Nets first unit Saturday, scoring 29 points (9-19 FG, 2-9 3PT, 9-10 FT) while also dishing out three assists, recording one steal, grabbing two rebounds, and blocking one shot in a 125-123 win over the Wizards.
Sumner has not made much of an impact of late for the Nets, reaching double-figures in scoring in just two of his last five games for the club. The 27-year-old guard is worth watching with Kyrie Irving requesting a trade and Ben Simmons in and out of the lineup as the Nets tread water until Kevin Durant returns.
