Former Pitt Player Misses NBA Summer League Game Following Injury



Former Pitt Panther Mo Gueye did not play in the Charlotte Hornets’ NBA Summer League game on Tuesday night against the Sacramento Kings.

Gueye injured his right ankle three days ago in his second Summer League game of the year. The team is now 3-0 in Summer League play, with wins over the Spurs, China, and now the Kings. In the game on Tuesday, former VMI and Chattanooga big man Jake Stephens produced a solid 12-point, 10-rebound stat line in the front court with Gueye sidelined.

In that first win over San Antonio, Gueye led the team with a solid 21-point night.

He then injured his ankle in the second game of the year after playing just six minutes in that game.

The former Stony Brook standout Gueye transferred to Pitt before the 2021-22 season and burst onto the scene as a dynamic player for the Panthers. He was the team leader in both three pointers and blocked shots in his lone season in Pittsburgh, averaging 2.1 blocks and hitting 43 threes on the year. Gueye scored 9.8 points per game and grabbed 6.3 rebounds per game, ranking him fourth on the team in scoring and second in rebounding.

Fellow Panthers Blake Hinson, Bub Carrington, and Justin Champagnie are also playing in the Summer League. Carrington and Champagnie both play for the Washington Wizards, who kick off their Summer League slate with a game on Friday night at 9:30 p.m. est on ESPN against the Atlanta Hawks. 

Hinson is up next on the calendar, as he has a game scheduled for Wednesday at 7 p.m. on ESPN2 against the Miami Heat.
