More bad news for the Pacers.

Just after announcing T.J. Warren wasn’t healing as quickly as anticipated, Indiana revealed Edmond Sumner will be sidelined long-term due to injury.

Pacers release:

Indiana Pacers guard Edmond Sumner sustained a torn left Achilles during an offseason workout on Thursday.  He will be out indefinitely; and updates will be provided as warranted.

Sumner declared for the 2017 NBA Draft with a torn ACL, worked his way back and started 24 games for Indiana last season. Now this. What a bummer.

The Pacers have plenty of shooting guards: Caris LeVert, Justin Holiday, Jeremy Lamb, Chris Duarte. But those wings will need to play more small forward with Warren out.

Sumner’s injury further saps Indiana’s depth.
