  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Status for Wednesday in limbo

    Carter is questionable for Wednesday's game against the 76ers due to a plantar fascia strain in his right foot.

    Carter missed 19 straight and 21 total games earlier in the season due to the foot issue but has started 14 consecutive contests, posting 14.1 points, 8.9 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 28.9 minutes during that stretch. It appears like his listing on the injury report is simply a load management situation, but it's still concerning to see him back on the injury report for the first time in over a month. If Carter is sidelined, Moritz Wagner, Mo Bamba and Bol Bol would be candidates for increased roles.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Second straight double-double

    Carter closed with 18 points (7-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 28 minutes during Wednesday's 126-120 victory over the Pacers.

    Carter had a solid first half, scoring 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting from the floor with nine boards, two assists and a block. He added another seven points in the second half but collected just one more rebound while finishing with a game-high five turnovers. Carter has now recorded a double-double in back-to-back contests, shooting 65.2 percent from the field over that brief stretch.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Double-double in Monday's win

    Carter posted 21 points (8-13 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 33 minutes during Monday's 113-98 victory over the Celtics.

    It's Carter's 11th double-double of the season, five of which have come in January. The fifth-year center is averaging 14.0 points, 9.2 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.4 threes and 1.0 blocks in 10 games on the month. He's getting closer to being the consistent double-double threat he was last season, when he averaged a career-high 10.5 rebounds a game.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Off shooting night Friday

    Carter registered two points (1-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt), nine rebounds and two assists across 24 minutes during Friday's 123-110 win over the Pelicans.

    Carter has posted a pair of lackluster showings in a row, falling to reach double digits in either of the last two tilts after doing so in his eight prior appearances. Given Carter's previous track record and his typical contributions in numerous categories, he's still worth starting in the vast majority of formats, even if he struggles on occasion.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Bags another double-double

    Carter finished with 19 points (7-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-5 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block across 30 minutes in Friday's 112-108 loss to the Jazz.

    Carter claimed his fourth double-double over six January games and also ended a drought in the steals department that had lasted seven contests. After he was initially brought back off the bench in late December following his return from a foot issue, Carter has settled back into a consistent 30-minute starting role.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Reaches 20-point mark

    Carter delivered 20 points (7-11 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists and one block across 31 minutes in Tuesday's 109-106 win over the Trail Blazers.

    For the first time since he returned to action Dec. 23 after an extended absence due to a foot injury, Carter hit the 20-point mark. While his injury has faded further in the rear-view mirror, Carter has steadily seen his production pick up, and he's now settled back into the consistent 30-minute starting role he held prior to his injury. The impending return of Jonathan Isaac (knee) will further muddle the Magic's crowded frontcourt, but both Carter and Paolo Banchero's minutes appear to be fairly solidified. Instead, players like Bol Bol, Moritz Wagner and Mo Bamba may have to compete with Isaac for what may be two available spots on the second unit when Orlando is at full strength.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Notches ninth double-double

    Carter ended Saturday's 115-101 victory over the Warriors with 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt), 10 rebounds and three assists over 31 minutes.

    Carter was already on his way to a double-double by the end of the first quarter with six points and five rebounds before going scoreless in the second quarter. He bounced back in the third quarter, however, going 3-of-3 from the field for seven points while adding two rebounds and an assist as the Magic added to their lead heading into the fourth. Carter finished with a team-high 10 rebounds to notch his ninth double-double of the season, and he's now scored in double figures in five straight.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Goes for 18 points in loss

    Carter closed with 18 points (7-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and one block over 30 minutes before fouling out of Thursday's 123-115 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Carter had a solid game overall, knocking down four of his seven field goal attempts in the first half for nine points before adding another nine in the second half on 3-of-5 shooting. The Magic's big man added seven boards and also went 2-of-4 from beyond the arc, though he did foul out for the fourth time this season with just over a minute left in the game. Carter has scored 15 or more points in six of his last eight contests, shooting 54 percent from the field over that span.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Gets starting nod

    Carter is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Thunder.

    Carter enters the starting lineup Wednesday with Bol Bol (COVID-19 protocols) and Moritz Wagner (suspension) out. Coach Jamahl Mosley said the 23-year-old big man won't be on a minutes restriction, Khobi Price of the Orlando Sentinel reports, which will come in handy with a number of frontcourt players missing the game for various reasons.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Grabs season-high 13 boards

    Carter produced 13 points (4-9 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 13 rebounds, one assist and two blocks over 30 minutes during Wednesday's 126-115 win over the Thunder.

    After scoring six first-quarter points on 3-of-5 shooting from the field, Carter had just five more field goal attempts over the next three quarters while also going 5-of-6 from the free-throw line. The Magic center did, however, rack up a game and season-high 13 rebounds on the night to notch his seventh double-double of the season as Orlando snapped its three-game losing streak. Carter also matched his season high with two blocks in the contest.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Suspended one game

    Carter and seven other Magic teammates were suspended for one game after they left the bench area during the scuffle. He'll be eligible to return Wednesday against Oklahoma City.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Strong showing off bench

    Carter totaled 16 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-9 FT), eight rebounds and one assist across 24 minutes during Wednesday's 121-101 loss to the Pistons.

    The 23-year-old center was the only Magic bench player to score in double digits on the night. Carter has been eased back into action on the second unit after missing more than a month due to a foot injury, averaging 13.0 points, 5.0 boards, 2.3 assists and 1.0 threes in 20.7 minutes over three games since his return, but with Moritz Wagner likely facing a suspension following Wednesday's bench-clearing scrum, his return to the starting five could happen sooner than expected.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Leads bench in limited time

    Carter logged 15 points (6-8 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and four assists in 19 minutes during Tuesday's 129-110 loss to the Lakers.

    Carter led Orlando's second unit in scoring while seeing limited minutes as he continues working back from a foot injury, finishing as one of three Magic players with at least 15 points. Carter has scored at least 15 points in 11 games this season.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Will remain limited

    Head coach Jamahl Mosley said Carter (foot) will remain on a minutes restriction during Tuesday's matchup against the Lakers.

    Carter returned to action Friday following a month-long absence due to a foot injury, but he came off the bench and played just 19 minutes. Given Mosley's comments, the talented big man figures to see a similar role Tuesday, which should leave plenty of minutes available for Moritz Wagner and Bol Bol.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Coming off bench in return

    Carter isn't starting Friday against the Spurs.

    Carter will be available Friday for the first time in over a month, and coach Jamahl Mosley said before the game that the 23-year-old would be on an unspecified minutes restriction. Carter started in his first 15 appearances this year but will take on a bench role Friday while Moritz Wagner remains in the starting lineup.
