Nets' Edmond Sumner: Pours in career-high 29 points
Sumner racked up a career-high 29 points (9-19 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 9-10 FT) to go with three assists, two rebounds, one block and one steal across 39 minutes during Saturday's 125-123 victory over Washington.
With Kyrie Irving (calf) sitting out Saturday and his tenure with the Nets perhaps coming to an end as the Feb. 9 trade deadline approaches, Sumner moved into the starting five and took advantage of the star point guard's absence, as well as several others' on Brooklyn's injury-riddled roster. Sumner was able to achieve the new personal best in scoring thanks to a 27.6 percent usage rate and some strong efficiency from the free-throw line and two-point range, but he'll likely lose out on some touches if any of Seth Curry (thigh), T.J. Warren (shin) and Ben Simmons (knee) are back in action in full capacity Monday against the Clippers. The Nets could still choose to stick with Sumner in the starting five even if all three players are back in action Monday, but the 27-year-old likely won't have much longevity on the top unit since Brooklyn would presumably get another starting point guard back in any trade prior to the deadline or would reinstall Irving as the starter if he isn't moved and is willing to continue playing for the Nets following the deadline....

Nets' Edmond Sumner: Will start Saturday
Sumner will join the starting lineup for Saturday's game versus the Wizards.
Sumner joins an unusual starting lineup with Kyrie Irving (calf), Kevin Durant (knee), Ben Simmons (knee) and T.J. Warren (lower leg) all sidelined. With Irving also potentially on the way out by Thursday's NBA trade deadline, Sumner could contend for more minutes moving forward, though that will depend on what the Nets receive in return for the star point guard....

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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less

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.... See More ... See Less

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....

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.... See More ... See Less

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.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Edmond Sumner: Starting Saturday

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.... See More ... See Less

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.... See More ... See Less
