New Orleans Pelicans' Frank Jackson during their NBA basketball media day in New Orleans, Monday, Sept. 25, 2017.

Frank Jackson’s NBA debut was short-lived.

The former Lone Peak High point guard is expected to be sidelined 2-4 weeks after being diagnosed with a left ankle sprain, the New Orleans Pelicans announced Saturday. He suffered the injury during the third quarter of the Pelicans’ 90-77 win over the Toronto Raptors on Friday at the MGM Resorts NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.

Jackson had 13 points, six rebounds, one assist and a steal for the Pelicans in 13 minutes of play before being sidelined.

He will miss the rest of the summer league, a blow after Jackson missed his rookie NBA season with a right ankle injury.

Here’s a look at how other players with Utah ties fared Saturday during the second day of the Las Vegas summer tournament.

Elijah Bryant, Philadelphia 76ers: The former BYU guard made his summer league debut, playing the final 3:16 of the 76ers' 96-79 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers. Bryant had a pair of defensive rebounds and a steal in his short time on the court.

C.J. Wilcox, Indiana Pacers: The former Pleasant Grove High guard scored 13 points while not missing a shot during the Pacers’ 86-76 win over the San Antonio Spurs.

Wilcox made all four field-goal attempts, including a pair of 3-pointers, while hitting three free throws for Indiana. He added a defensive rebound.
