AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - Detroit Pistons rookie Michael Gbinije will miss the rest of summer league with a sprained right ankle.

Gbinije, a 6-foot-7 guard drafted in the second round last month by the Pistons, was hoping to play in the Olympics for Nigeria. It’s not clear how this injury might affect those plans; a spokesman for the Pistons said Monday the only thing that’s been determined is that Gbinije will miss the remainder of the Orlando summer league.

Gbinije averaged 17.5 points a game as a senior at Syracuse and helped the Orange to a Final Four appearance this year.
