Daniels is unlikely to return to Summer League due to an ankle injury, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.
Daniels' injury isn't considered serious, so he should be ready by the time training camp rolls around. The team will take precautions with the No. 8 overall pick, who finishes Summer League with just one point over eight minutes in his lone appearance for the Pelicans.
