Elfrid Payton is a sneaky Rookie of the Year candidate, Nikola Vucevic just filmed a reasonably priced extension along with 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 accurately cite the fact that the Magic have been such noise statistical stoppers since their preseason schedule included the hapless Sixers and Indiana Pacers, but understand this: You are no fun at parties.
Also decidedly unfun: Victor Oladipo’s being sidelined for a little while with a injury.
Oct. 23, the official launch of the team relayed the news:
Orlando Magic guard Victor Oladipo will be out indefinitely after suffering a facial fracture in practice Thursday, General Manager Rob Hennigan announced now.
Thursday afternoon, oladipo, who was assessed, will undergo a corrective surgical procedure. After taking an elbow during a practice 12, he had been injured.
Oladipo, last year’s lottery pick and someone the Magic expected would take a jump this season, was battling a bad knee during the preseason. Neither he nor Orlando needed this.
Looks like Payton will get a chance to show himself immediately. That is good.
Looks like Ben Gordon is in the mix to begin at shooting guard. That good.
Hurry back, Victor.
