Elfrid Payton is a sneaky Rookie of the Year candidate, Nikola Vucevic only filmed a reasonably priced extension and the Orlando Magic’s defense has allowed a highly stingy 97.2 points per 100 possessions during preseason play, according to RealGM.com.
You’re able to correctly cite how the Magic have been such noise statistical stoppers since their preseason schedule comprised the hapless Sixers and Indiana Pacers, but understand this: You’re no fun at parties.
Additionally decidedly unfun: Victor Oladipo’s being sidelined for a little while with a nasty injury.
The team launch relayed the information Oct. 23:
Orlando Magic guard Victor Oladipo is going to be out indefinitely after suffering a facial fracture in practice Thursday, General Manager Rob Hennigan declared today.
Thursday afternoon oladipo, who had been assessed, will undergo a corrective surgical procedure on Saturday. After taking an elbow in a practice 12, he was injured.
Oladipo, last year’s lottery selection and someone the Magic expected would take a leap this year, was battling a bad knee during the preseason. Neither he nor Orlando needed this.
Looks like Payton will get a chance to prove himself. That is good.
Looks like Ben Gordon is in the mix to start at guard. That good.
Hurry back, Victor.
