(WVUE) -

The Pelicans opened their summer league campaign with a 90-77 victory over the Raptors, but it came with an injury price. Guard Frank Jackson racked up 13 points and six rebounds, but left the contest with a left ankle injury.

"I would think no chance of him playing tomorrow (against the Miami Heat)," Pelicans Summer League coach Kevin Hanson told the the Times-Picayune. "Hopefully, by Monday (he'll be back). He rolled it pretty good.

Jackson missed his rookie season after accumulating three surgeries on his right foot.

Trevon Bluiett had a game-high 24 points for the Pelicans. Cheick Diallo also chipped in with 13 points and 10 rebounds.

The Pelicans are back in action against the Heat at 4 p.m. Saturday.
