Tyler Zeller will miss rest of summer league with finger injury

By Jason Lloyd Published: July 19, 2013

Tyler Zeller received two stitches on the tip of his left ring finger and will not play in anymore summer league games. The injury, however, won't affect his status for next week's USA Basketball minicamp.

Zeller injured the finger going up to try and block a dunk in Thursday's victory over the San Antonio Spurs. He said he could play with it now, but the plan already was for him to sit the last couple of summer league games. The Cavs (3-1) face the Miami Heat at 4 p.m. EDT on Saturday in a summer league quarterfinals game.

Zeller, along with teammates Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters, are part of 27 young NBA players invited to Las Vegas for the Team USA camp. It is the first step as USA Basketball begins to rebuild its team for the 2016 Games. Irving has the best chance of all the Cavs players at making the final roster.
