Top Edmond Sumner News

  • Nets' Edmond Sumner: Ready to roll Saturday

    Sumner (Achilles) will be available for Saturday's game versus the Knicks, Chris Milholen of NetsDaily.com reports.

    Sumner racked up a season-best 24 points last time out over just 24 minutes, displaying impressive efficiency from the field and the charity stripe along the way. He will look to back that up with another strong effort Saturday and may have earned some additional run with the showing, especially with Ben Simmons (knee) and T.J. Warren (lower leg) both still out.

  • Nets' Edmond Sumner: Dealing with Achilles soreness

    Sumner is probable for Saturday's game against the Nets due to left Achilles soreness, Kristian Winfield of the New York Daily News reports.

    Sumner is coming off a season-high 24 points in just 19 minutes during Thursday's loss to the Pistons, but it appears he's picked up an Achilles injury as well. However, the issue doesn't seem to be too severe and shouldn't sideline the backup point guard for Saturday's matchup. Sumner has garnered a sporadic role during his first season with Brooklyn, averaging 6.8 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 13.8 minutes per game.

  • Nets' Edmond Sumner: Season-high 24 points off bench

    Sumner had 24 points (7-10 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 8-8 FT), five rebounds and three assists across 19 minutes during Thursday's 130-122 loss to the Pistons.

    Sumner was having a solid night off the bench over the first three quarters, recording 12 points on 2-of-4 shooting while also knocking down all seven free-throw attempts. However, the point guard really found his legs in the fourth quarter, going 5-of-6 from the field for another 12 points to give him a season-high 24 on the night. Sumner added five boards and three assists, though he did commit five personal fouls despite playing only 19 minutes. It was his second 20-point game of the season, and he's now shooting 60 percent from the field over his last five contests.

  • Nets' Edmond Sumner: Scores 13 off bench

    Sumner contributed 13 points (4-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds and one assist in 18 minutes during Tuesday's 106-98 loss to San Antonio.

    Sumner retreated to the bench Tuesday after starting Sunday against Oklahoma City, but he actually saw an uptick in playing time against the Spurs and scored in double figures for the first time since Dec. 21 while matching his third-highest rebound total of the season. Over five appearances in January, Sumner's averaged 4.2 points and 1.6 rebounds in 9.2 minutes per game.

  • Nets' Edmond Sumner: Exits starting five

    Sumner is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game at San Antonio, Chris Milholen of NetsDaily.com reports.

    The 27-year-old made his 10th start of the season Sunday against the Thunder but will return to the bench Tuesday with Ben Simmons (back) rejoining the lineup. Sumner has averaged 4.9 points and 1.3 assists in 11.7 minutes when coming off the bench this season, though he could see more action Tuesday with both Kyrie Irving (calf) and Kevin Durant (knee) unavailable.

  • Nets' Edmond Sumner: Gets start sans Simmons

    Sumner will start Sunday's game against the Thunder, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

    Sumner will draw his 10th start of the season and first since Dec. 10. Across his previous nine starts, the fifth-year point guard has averaged 11.3 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.6 steals in 20.7 minutes per game.

  • Nets' Edmond Sumner: Contract being guaranteed by Nets

    The Nets guaranteed Sumner's contract for the remainder of the season Friday, Michael Scotto of USA Today reports.

    Sumner has served as a backup point guard for Brooklyn early in the regular season. He'll remain with the club going forward after having his contract guaranteed before Saturday's deadline. Over his first 33 appearances with the Nets, he's averaged 6.8 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 14.4 minutes per game.

  • Nets' Edmond Sumner: Good to go Saturday

    Sumner (thumb/ankle) is available for Saturday's game versus Charlotte, independent NBA writer Matthew Tynan reports.

    Sumner and Ben Simmons (illness) have been upgraded from questionable to available Saturday. The 26-year-old guard is averaging 5.8 points, 2.4 assists and 1.2 rebounds in 13.8 minutes across his last five outings.

  • Nets' Edmond Sumner: Picks up ankle injury

    Sumner (thumb/ankle) is questionable for Saturday's game versus Charlotte.

    Sumner has been downgraded from probable to questionable due to a right thumb contusion and left ankle soreness. If he is unable to play Saturday, his next chance to suit up is Monday's matchup with San Antonio.

  • Nets' Edmond Sumner: Likely to play against Charlotte

    Sumner is probable to play in Saturday's game versus the Hornets due to a right thumb contusion, Chris Milholen of NetsDaily.com reports.

    Sumner has seen his production drop since the beginning of November, when he made eight consecutive starts. The 26-year-old guard played just four minutes in his most recent outing and has scored in single digits in eight of his last 10 games.

  • Nets' Edmond Sumner: Pops for 16 off bench

    Sumner finished Wednesday's 143-113 win over the Warriors with 16 points (5-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), one rebound and two assists over 27 minutes off the bench.

    The Nets led by a whopping 40 points at halftime, and as a result bench players like Sumner got extended run in the second half. The 26-year-old has carved out a modest role in the Brooklyn backcourt lately, scoring 21 points in a spot start Dec. 10 against the Pacers as well, and over his last nine games he's averaging 16.0 minutes, 8.6 points 1.9 assists, 1.8 boards and 1.1 steals while shooting 52.0 percent from the floor.

  • Nets' Edmond Sumner: Produces crooked line in start

    Sumner finished with 21 points (7-13 FG, 6-7 3Pt, 1-3 3Pt), seven rebounds, five assists and two steals in 27 minutes Saturday in the Nets' 136-133 win over the Pacers.

    Brooklyn was without all five members of its usual starting five as well as three rotation players for the second half of the back-to-back set, paving the way for Sumner and several other back-end roster types to see massive spikes in playing time. Sumner was able to take advantage of the absences to produce a strong stat line, but he'll likely find himself in a much smaller role as soon as Monday's game against the Wizards. When Brooklyn was at close to full strength for the front end of the back-to-back set Friday in a four-point win over the Hawks, Sumner played just 15 minutes.

  • Nets' Edmond Sumner: Starting Saturday

    Sumner will start Saturday's game at Indiana, Tony East of WTHR Channel 13 Indianapolis reports.

    The former Pacer gets the nod against his former team with Brooklyn resting the vast majority of its regular rotation players. Per 36 minutes this season, Sumner is averaging 17.0 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 2.2 steals.

  • Nets' Edmond Sumner: Good to go Wednesday

    Sumner (upper leg) will be available for Wednesday's game versus the Hornets.

    Sumner seemed to be trending in the right direction and will indeed make his return from a one-game absence due to a right glute contusion. He should slot into a bench backcourt role and has averaged 11.8 minutes per game in his last four appearances. However, he's posted just 4.5 points and 1.3 steals per game over that span with very few ancillary stats, so Sumner doesn't warrant a fantasy roster spot in most formats.

  • Nets' Edmond Sumner: Questionable Wednesday

    Sumner is considered questionable to suit up for Wednesday's contest versus the Hornets due to a right glute contusion.

    The fact that Sumner is questionable for Wednesday is a good sign after he was immediately ruled out for the previous contest. If he's available, Sumner should return to a contributing role off the bench.

  • Nets' Edmond Sumner: Out Sunday

    Sumner (glute) will not take the floor Sunday against the Celtics, Chris Milholen of NetsDaily.com reports.

    Sumner suffered a right glute contusion in Wednesday's game, causing him to exit the contest prematurely and remain out Sunday. Patty Mills and Cam Thomas will likely see larger workloads in his absence. Sumner's next opportunity to play will come Wednesday against the Hornets.

  • Nets' Edmond Sumner: Won't return Friday

    Sumner won't return Friday due to a right glute contusion.

    Sumner scored eight points in 14 minutes off the bench before exiting with a right glute contusion. The extent of the injury remains unclear, but at this point, the backup guard can likely be considered questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Celtics.

  • Nets' Edmond Sumner: Continues to thrive as starter

    Sumner provided 18 points (4-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 9-9 FT), one rebound, one assist and two steals across 22 minutes during Tuesday's 153-121 loss to the Kings.

    Sumner has looked impressive since moving to the starting unit and is going through his best stretch of the season after putting up his fourth straight contest with at least 10 points. Ben Simmons returned and came off the bench Tuesday, so there's a chance Sumner might return to a bench role sooner than later, but he's been playing well enough to remain in the first unit. He's averaging 11.6 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.7 steals per game across seven starts.
