It will if the valve breaks off or otherwise drops into the motor.

I would NOT run it. More damage could be caused.
I have new and used valves but your probably to far away to come get them today.

1st thing the engine will fall flat on its face about 7200 RPM with only one valve working properly, The second thing is the risk of added damage. I would park it until you can replace the parts. My dealer had the parts in stock. Another option is find some used parts in good condition. If you know of anyone who repairs as an indy good change he will have what you need.
