Jaden Ivey scored 11 points in 5 minutes of NBA Summer Leagues action Saturday night. Unfortunately, that’s all Ivey would get to play before leaving with an injury.
With just under 5 minutes remaining in the first period of the Detroit Pistons vs. Washington Wizards contest, Ivey left the game after injuring his ankle. He was ruled out for the rest of the game.

Ivey was the No. 5 overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft. He scored 20 points in his NBA Summer League Debut Thursday against the Portal Trail Blazers.
Hopefully, Ivey isn’t sidelined for long with his injury and returns to the court soon.
