Guard Edmond Sumner underwent successful surgery on a torn left Achilles tendon Monday and remains out indefinitely, the Indiana Pacers announced Tuesday.

Sumner suffered the injury during a recent offseason workout. His surgery was performed by Dr. Martin O’Malley at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City.

Sumner, 25, averaged 7.5 points, 1.8 rebounds and 0.9 assists over 53 games (24 starts) last season, establishing himself as a regular member of the Pacers' rotation. The Pacers exercised the club option on the 2017 second-round draft pick for 2021-22 in late July and he appeared poised for a more significant role this season after guard Aaron Holiday was traded to the Washington Wizards this summer.
