  • Magic's Paolo Banchero: Struggles from field in Magic debut

    Banchero finished with eight points (2-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block over 24 minutes in Monday's loss to the Grizzlies in his NBA preseason debut.

    Banchero started and ranked second on the team with 24 minutes in the exhibition opener, but he had a hard time getting his shot to fall. The No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft looked much better in a pair of contests in the Las Vegas Summer League, so there's little point in reading too much into Monday's subpar showing. He'll likely go through some rookie growing pains, but Banchero figures to see ample opportunity this season and is an interesting target in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts.

  • Magic's Cole Anthony: Leads Orlando in preseason opener

    Anthony totaled 17 points (6-10 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds and one steal over 21 minutes in Monday's exhibition loss to Memphis.

    Anthony was the Magic's leading scorer in the contest, with all but five of his 17 points coming from three-point range. The point guard didn't record any assists in the contest, but he did rank second on the team with five boards. Anthony blossomed in his sophomore campaign last season, averaging a team-best 16.3 points and 5.7 dimes. However, he may be hard-pressed to repeat those numbers if Markelle Fultz (toe) takes over the starting point-guard role this season.

  • Magic's Paolo Banchero: Starting preseason debut

    Banchero will start Monday's preseason game against the Grizzlies, Khobi Price of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

    The Magic will go with a big lineup featuring Banchero at small forward alongside Mo Bamba and Wendell Carter. Cole Anthony and Jalen Suggs will get the nod at the guard spots, while both Franz Wagner (rest) and Markelle Fultz (toe) sit out. When Wagner is available, Banchero will likely slide up to his more natural power forward spot, but his skill set should enable him to play both positions for a Magic team stocked with frontcourt depth.

  • Magic's Jalen Suggs: Starting Monday

    Suggs (ankle) will start during Monday's preseason opener against the Grizzlies.

    Suggs underwent ankle surgery during the offseason, but the 6-foot-5 guard is officially ready to go for his second year in the NBA. The Gonzaga product is set to take the court with 2022 No. 1 overall pick Paolo Banchero for the first time in their careers during Monday's preseason opener.

  • Magic's Admiral Schofield: Out Monday

    Schofield (sore knee) will not play in Monday's preseason opener against the Grizzlies, Dan Savage of the Magic's official site reports.

    The Tennesee product will not appear in Orlando's preseason opener due to a sore knee. Schofield's next chance to make his 2022 preseason debut comes Thursday against the Spurs.

  • Magic's Franz Wagner: Resting Monday

    Wagner (rest) is out for Monday's preseason contest against the Grizzlies, Dan Savage of the Magic's official site reports.

    After participating in EuroBasket during the offseason, the Magic are opting to rest their young forward for Monday's preseason opener. Wagner's next opportunity to suit up for Orlando comes Thursday in San Antonio.

  • Magic's Bol Bol: Cleared for training camp

    Bol (foot) said at a press conference Monday that he's fully healthy heading into the 2022-23 campaign, Khobi Price of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

    Bol underwent foot surgery in January, ending his 2021-22 campaign, and was traded to the Magic in February. Now that he's healthy, he'll seek a role in Orlando's rotation with a strong training camp. Since being drafted 44th overall in 2019, Bol has appeared in 53 games and averaged 2.7 points and 1.2 rebounds in 6.2 minutes.

  • Magic's Jonathan Isaac: Limited to individual work for now

    Magic President of Basketball Operations Jeff Weltman said Monday that Isaac (hamstring) won't participate in full team practices at the start of training camp, Khobi Price of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

    While Isaac continues to progress in his recovery following hamstring surgery, he is still working through the individual phase of his rehabilitation. He remains without a timetable for when he'll be able to rejoin team practices. The Magic seem optimistic that Isaac will be available at some point during the 2022-23 campaign, but for the time being, he'll continue his individual work on the side when the team opens camp this week. Orlando will face Detroit in its regular-season opener Oct. 19.

  • Magic's Gary Harris: Won't be ready for training camp

    Harris (knee) won't participate in training camp, Khobi Price of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

    Harris underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee at the end of August to repair a torn meniscus. It appears the veteran guard will miss at least the start of the regular season, but it's unclear how long he'll be sidelined. More information on his status should surface as the season draws closer.

  • Magic's Markelle Fultz: Suffers toe fracture

    Fultz recently suffered a fracture in his big left toe, but he won't need surgery and his return timetable will depend on how he responds during rehab.

    Fultz suffered the injury during a preseason workout prior to returning to Orlando for training camp, which begins Sept. 27. The timing couldn't be worse for the 2017 first-round pick, who continues to battle injury after injury. Since being traded to the Magic in 2019, Fultz has played in only 98 games (71 starts), posting 11.9 points, 5.2 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 26.2 minutes per game. If Fultz is forced to miss the start of the regular season, Cole Anthony would likely step into the starting lineup, while R.J. Hampton and Gary Harris would garner increased roles off the bench.

  • Magic's Aleem Ford: Inks deal with Orlando

    The Magic announced Saturday that they signed Ford.

    Ford played five games for the Magic in 2021 and averaged 2.8 points and 3.0 rebounds in 14.8 minutes. While the 6-foot-8 forward out of Wisconsin has potential, he will need to improve on his 30.0 percent from the field and 13.3 percent from the three shooting splits to make the team this season.

  • Magic's Franz Wagner: Back in action Tuesday

    Wagner (ankle) is expected to play in Germany's FIBA contest against Greece on Tuesday, Khobi Price of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

    Wagner sprained his ankle during a contest Saturday, but it appears he'll suit up for Germany in the quarterfinals. The Magic's preseason opens up Oct. 3, with training camp set to start earlier than that, so a summer injury would be costly for his upcoming NBA campaign. However, he wouldn't suit up if there was a higher than usual chance of a setback happening. The 22-year-old forward posted 15.2 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.9 assists last year for the Magic and has been a star during EuroBasket 2022, leading to speculation that he could be in store for a major leap in Year 2.

  • Magic's Joel Ayayi: Signs with Orlando

    Ayayi signed a contract with the Magic on Monday.

    The details of the deal are not disclosed at the moment, but nonetheless, the guard will attempt to make the roster with a great training camp. The 6-4, 180-pound Ayayi played in 29 games last season with Capital City in the G League and averaged 10.7 points, 6.6 assists and 5.7 rebounds.
