Magic's Jonathan Isaac: Questionable Wednesday
Isaac is questionable for Wednesday's game against the 76ers due to left knee injury management.
Isaac made his season debut Jan. 23 but hasn't played more than 10 minutes in any of his appearances, averaging 5.5 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 9.3 minutes per game. If he's sidelined Wednesday, Bol Bol could see a slight uptick in playing time.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Moritz Wagner: Big night off bench
Wagner chipped in 22 points (6-11 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 10-10 FT), six rebounds and one block over 22 minutes off the bench during Monday's 119-109 win over the 76ers.
The 25-year-old was the only member of the Magic's second unit to score more than five points on the night, but Wagner's contributions were enough to put Orlando over the top. He's scored more than 20 points in back-to-back contests after going 16 straight games without reaching that mark once, but without more court time, it's hard to bank on him maintaining that scoring pace for any length of time....

Magic's Markelle Fultz: Double-double in Monday's win
Fultz amassed 12 points (4-14 FG, 4-5 FT), two rebounds, 10 assists and four steals over 32 minutes during Monday's 119-109 victory over Philadelphia.
It's the 24-year-old's first double-double of the season and only the eighth of his career, and it came against the team that selected him with the first overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. Fultz wraps up a solid January averaging 12.9 points, 6.2 assists, 3.4 boards and 1.4 steals over 14 games while shooting an impressive 53.6 percent from the floor.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Paolo Banchero: Hits for 29 against Sixers
Banchero totaled 29 points (11-22 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), nine rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal across 37 minutes during Monday's 119-109 victory over Philadelphia.
It was a solid bounce-back performance from the rookie, who scored only nine points in Saturday's loss to the Bulls. Banchero might be hitting a bit of a wall -- he's scored 20 or more points only three times in the last 11 games, averaging 18.4 points, 5.5 boards, 2.9 assists, 1.5 threes and 1.4 steals over that stretch while shooting 41.2 percent from the floor....

Magic's Chuma Okeke: Still out
Okeke (knee) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup against the 76ers.
Okeke hasn't played since Nov. 21 and underwent an arthroscopic knee surgery at the end of November. He was expected to be re-evaluated a month after the procedure, but the Magic have yet to provide another update. Okeke's availability will be handled on a game-by-game basis moving forward, but it's unclear if he'll suit up anytime soon.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Caleb Houstan: Recalled to NBA club
The Magic recalled Houstan to the NBA club from the G League's Lakeland Magic on Sunday.
Orlando elevated Houstan and R.J. Hampton on Sunday, and both will presumably be available for Monday's matchup against Philadelphia. Houstan is averaging 4.0 points and 2.3 rebounds in 16.5 minutes across 30 appearances (two starts), but he hasn't played more than 10 minutes in an NBA game since Jan. 5.... See More ... See Less
Magic's R.J. Hampton: Back to NBA
Orlando recalled Hampton to the NBA club from the G League's Lakeland Magic on Sunday.
The Magic elevated Hampton and Caleb Houstan to the NBA squad Sunday, and both will presumably be available for Monday's matchup against Philadelphia. Hampton is averaging 5.7 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 13.9 minutes across 26 appearances this season, but he hasn't played more than 10 minutes in an NBA game since Nov. 28....

Magic's Jonathan Isaac: Low minutes continue
Isaac had five points (2-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt), four rebounds and one steal in nine minutes during Saturday's 128-109 loss to the Bulls.
Isaac has yet to see 10 minutes of action in any of his three games since returning from his multi-year absence, and that might continue for a while this season. Even in that minimal playing time, he's still averaging a decent 1.7 steals per game. Considering that the 25-year-old is also continuing to rest games, his potential value for next season is likely the bigger focus than his value for this season.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Moritz Wagner: Huge game off bench
Wagner ended Saturday's 128-109 loss to the Bulls with 27 points (8-11 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 8-9 FT), two rebounds, three assists and one steal in 23 minutes.
With the starting unit struggling mightily Saturday night, Wagner stepped up and helped his team cut into a vast double-digit deficit in the second half. At one point, the 25-year-old big man scored 16 straight for the Magic. This may have been an atypical minutes distribution for Orlando, but it's worth noting that Wagner has scored in double figures the last eight times he's seen 20-plus minutes of action....

Magic's Jonathan Isaac: Available Saturday
Isaac (knee) is available for Saturday's game against the Bulls, Khobi Price of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Although Isaac will be available, expect him to remain on a pretty strict minutes limit. He was on an 8-to-10 limit in the team's previous game and will presumably see something similar Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Kevon Harris: Makes return in G League
Harris (face) recorded 27 points (10-19 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block across 29 minutes for the G League's Lakeland Magic in Friday's 128-121 win over the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.
After missing Lakeland's previous contest Tuesday versus the Delaware Blue Coats due to a facial contusion, Harris returned to Lakeland's starting lineup Friday and tied for a game-high scoring total. Disregarding the game when the 25-year-old departed due to injury after playing just six minutes, Harris is now averaging 21.8 points and 5.9 rebounds per matchup over his last nine outings in the G League....
