Ivey injured in Pistons' Summer League victory but level of concern seems low

Las Vegas — The outcome of the game wasn’t as important as the status report on first-round pick Jaden Ivey. It’s always scary when a player lands awkwardly on a play. When it’s a top draft pick, it’s intensified.

Jaden Ivey, the No. 5 overall pick, suffered an ankle injury after attempting a 3-pointer in the first quarter of Saturday’s Summer League matchup against the Washington Wizards. He hobbled to the locker room and did not return to play, though he did return to the bench in the second half.

Pistons Summer League coach Jordan Brink said there hasn't been an update on Ivey's status, but the concern level doesn't seem to be high about the long-term outlook.
