Top Franz Wagner News

  • Magic's Franz Wagner: Sniffs double-double

    Wagner provided 19 points (7-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-5 FT), eight rebounds, five assists and one steal over 33 minutes during Sunday's 109-92 loss to Atlanta.

    Wagner ended just two boards shy of recording a double-double Sunday, but it was far from the best performance for the Magic, as they looked completely out of sorts down two starters in Markelle Fultz, who didn't start in his return from a knee injury, and All-Star forward Paolo Banchero, who missed the game due to an illness. Wagner posted a decent stat line, but to be fair, this production was in line with what he's done all year. Wagner is averaging 22.3 points, 5.1 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game in February.

  • Magic's Franz Wagner: Shines in win over Bulls

    Wagner posted 36 points (12-22 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 7-10 FT), three rebounds and five assists in 44 minutes during Saturday's 114-108 overtime victory over the Bulls.

    Wagner has been on an absolute tear of late, scoring 30 or more points in three of his last four appearances and showing he didn't miss a beat despite being sidelined for eight games in January due to an ankle injury. He's been averaging 22.4 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 4.6 assists per game in 11 outings since returning to the hardwood.

  • Magic's Franz Wagner: Game-high 34 points vs. Spurs

    Wagner finished Thursday's 127-111 win over San Antonio with 34 points (13-17 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven rebounds, seven assists and two blocks over 28 minutes.

    It was an efficient night for the third-year forward out of Michigan as he was productive across the box score in under 30 minutes of play. Wagner has scored 30-plus points in two of his last three appearances and is averaging 26.0 points per game in February.

  • Magic's Franz Wagner: Posts season high as leading scorer

    Wagner contributed 38 points (17-25 FG, 4-7 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists and one steal across 36 minutes during Sunday's 111-99 victory over the Pistons.

    Wagner led all players in Sunday's contest in scoring while connecting on a quartet of threes and setting a season-high scoring mark in scoring in a winning effort. Wagner, who finished shooting 68.0 percent from the field, has surpassed the 30-point mark in five games this season, his first such performance since notching a previous season high of 32 points Dec. 29. Wagner has now connected on four or more threes in three games.

  • Magic's Franz Wagner: Comes close to double-double

    Wagner accumulated 20 points (9-16 FG, 2-4 3Pt), eight rebounds, five assists and one steal in 33 minutes during Wednesday's 108-98 victory over the Spurs.

    Wagner delivered a solid shooting performance and ended just two rebounds shy of a double-double as the Magic earned a hard-fought win against the Spurs. Wagner didn't look rusty despite missing eight games in a row to start January, as he has surpassed the 15-point mark in five of his six appearances since returning, including hitting the 20-point mark in the last two. Wagner is having a career-best season in 2023-24 and has scored 20 or more points in 21 games already.

  • Magic's Franz Wagner: Goes for 21 points Monday

    Wagner finished with 21 points (8-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds, six assists and one steal across 32 minutes during Monday's 131-129 loss to Dallas.

    After returning from an eight-game absence earlier this month, Wagner finally cleared the 20-point hurdle for the first time since stepping back into the hardwood. He was on a run of seven straight games with 24 or more points before suffering the injury against the Kings on Jan. 3, but since he has remained in a starting role, Wagner's numbers should eventually move closer to the figures he was posting before the injury. Either way, he's having a career-best season with averages of 20.4 points, 5.7 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game in 2023-24.

  • Magic's Franz Wagner: Scores 17 in second game back

    Wagner supplied 17 points (6-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds and two assists across 24 minutes during Monday's 126-99 loss to the Cavaliers.

    With the Magic trailing big heading into the fourth quarter, the team opted to empty the bench, which partially explains Wagner's low minutes. He's working his way back from a right ankle sprain he sustained Jan. 3, and he played 28 minutes in his return Sunday against the Heat. His next chance to crack 30 minutes will be Friday against the Grizzlies.

  • Magic's Franz Wagner: Sparks offense in return

    Wagner (ankle) accumulated 19 points (6-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT), five assists and two rebounds across 28 minutes during Sunday's 105-87 win over the Heat.

    Wagner returned to action after missing the previous eight games with a right ankle sprain. Though he fell below his season average of 33.2 minutes per game, Wagner still recaptured his spot in the starting five and led all Magic players in assists while shooting efficiently from three-point range and the free-throw line in his return to action. The Magic will finish out their back-to-back set Monday against the Cavaliers, and while Wagner could be a candidate to sit out that contest or have his minutes managed, he shouldn't face any restrictions in the games that follow.

    Wagner (ankle) is questionable to play Sunday against Miami.

    Wagner has been sidelined since Jan. 3 after spraining his right ankle against Sacramento, but he was reportedly making good progress throughout the week and is shaping up to return imminently.

  • Magic's Franz Wagner: Continues to progress

    Wagner (ankle) remains out for Wednesday's game against the Hawks, but head coach Jamahl Mosley said that the third-year wing is making good progress with his rehab, Philip Rossman-Reich of OrlandoMagicDaily.com reports.

    Mosley anticipates Wagner will be back "sooner than later," though Wagner hasn't yet resumed contact work. The Magic continue to evaluate Wagner on a game-by-game basis, but be appears to be doubtful, at best, for Friday's contest versus the 76ers.

  • Magic's Franz Wagner: Won't play Wednesday

  • Magic's Franz Wagner: Absence to continue Monday

    Wagner (ankle) won't play in Monday's game against the Knicks.

    Wagner's right ankle sprain will sideline him for a sixth consecutive contest. The fact that the Magic ruled him out a day in advance of their upcoming game isn't an encouraging sign that Wagner will be available during the team's four-game week, but he'll continue to be evaluated on a game-by-game basis. Caleb Houstan and Chuma Okeke may continue to serve as Orlando's starters on the wing so long as Wagner and Gary Harris (calf) remain sidelined.

  • Magic's Franz Wagner: Missing fourth straight game

    Wagner (ankle) won't play in Friday's game at the Heat.

    Wagner is missing a fourth straight game Friday, and it's not a good sign he's being ruled out a day in advance. Orlando plays the second half of a back-to-back Saturday against the Thunder, so don't be surprised if Wagner is out then too. With Gary Harris (calf) out again as well, the Magic should once more start Chuma Okeke and Caleb Houstan at shooting guard and small forward.
