FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Before being recalled by the Pacers Thursday afternoon, Edmond Sumner had spent five straight practices with the Mad Ants while he recovered from a hand injury he suffered just three games in to the NBA season.
Unfortunately for Sumner, the injury came at a time when he was playing the best basketball of his NBA career, averaging seven points on 50 percent shooting in the early part of the season.
Sumner spent plenty of time in Fort Wayne during the 2018-19 season, playing in 26 games while averaging 22 points and four assists per contest.
He credits his time in the G League with the Mad Ants for his recent success and is eager to get back to the NBA to continue to grow his game.
Sumner will be active for the Pacers' December 6 game in Detroit.
