Undergoes Achilles surgery
Sumner sustained the injury in a workout last week, and though surgery went according to plan, he'll likely miss most -- if not all -- of the 2021-22 season while he goes through a lengthy and arduous rehab. The 25-year-old has now suffered two major left leg injuries through his first five NBA seasons; he was limited to just one appearance as a rookie in 2017-18 while he recovered from an ACL tear suffered in January of his final collegiate season at Xavier.

Tears Achilles tendon
Sumner worked himself into a decent depth role for the Pacers over the past two seasons, as he appeared in 84 games (27 starts) and averaged 6.6 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.2 assists. However, a torn Achilles means Sumner will presumably miss all of the upcoming season.

Remains out indefinitely
Warren underwent surgery on his foot Jan. 5 and missed the remainder of the 2020-21 season. He appeared in just four games and averaged 15.5 points and 3.5 rebounds over 29.3 minutes per game. The 28-year-old may start the 2021-22 campaign on the sidelines, but he took to Twitter to tell his fans that he is doing the 'rehab process right' so that he can get back to the court as soon as possible.
