On Saturday, the Pacers tipped of summer league with a win over the host Magic. Despite the positive result, the Pacers played without rookie T.J. Leaf who was at his brother’s wedding and Rakeem Christmas who tweaked an ankle in the final practice at the Fieldhouse on Thursday.
Also, Georges Niang left the game early on Saturday after tweaking a knee in the first quarter. The last thing Niang needs is to miss the opportunities to play in Orlando this week. Now former teammate, C.J. Miles tweeted his support to his former teammate after hearing the news.
Among the notable Hornets, rookies Malik Monk and Dwayne Bacon highlight the roster.
