  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Hits for 22 against OKC

    Carter closed with 22 points (9-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds and one assist across 31 minutes during Tuesday's 127-113 loss to the Thunder.

    The 24-year-old center produced at least 20 points for the first time since Jan. 26, and the third time this season. Since moving into the starting lineup 12 games ago, Carter is averaging 13.1 points, 6.7 boards, 1.6 assists and 1.3 threes while shooting 56.3 percent from the floor.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Season-best outing in double-double

    Carter accumulated 18 points (6-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 12 rebounds and one assist over 37 minutes during Friday's 108-106 victory over Minnesota.

    Carter led all Magic players in rebounds while hauling in a season-high total en route to a double-double performance in a winning effort. Carter, who was one of five players with a double-digit point total, has recorded 10 or more rebounds in three games this year, all of which have ended in a double-double outing.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Strong performance despite loss

    Carter provided 20 points (8-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two steals over 35 minutes during Friday's 107-106 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Carter continues to flip the script, scoring at least 15 points for the fifth time in the past six games. After falling off the fantasy radar, he has turned things around of late, putting up top-30 numbers over the past two weeks. Rumors of a trade continue to swirl, but for now, he should be viewed as a must-roster player across most formats.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Near double-double in loss

    Carter racked up 10 points (4-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, one assist and two steals in 27 minutes during Monday's 126-99 loss to the Cavaliers.

    Like in Sunday's game against the Heat, Carter was one rebound shy of notching a double-double. He's returned to the starting center spot for Goga Bitadze, and Carter has shown solid production over those starts. He's averaging 15.3 points on 61.1 percent shooting (including 56.3 percent from three), 6.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists over 24.0 minutes per game in January.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Strong showing in starting lineup

    Carter chipped in 17 points (7-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and one steal across 34 minutes during Sunday's 105-87 victory over the Heat.

    Carter made his first start since Dec. 27 by finishing as one of three Magic players with 15 or more points and ending one rebound short of a double-double. After a slow, injury-plagued start to the season, Carter has stepped up for Orlando as of late, scoring at least 17 points in four straight appearances.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Returns to starting lineup

    Carter will start Sunday's game against the Heat, Jason Beede of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

    Carter will make his first start since Dec. 27, joining Markelle Fultz, Jalen Suggs, Franz Wagner and Paolo Banchero. Carter has played well over his last three games, posting 20.0 points and 6.3 rebounds in 23.0 minutes.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Big double-double off bench

    Carter supplied 25 points (9-13 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 6-7 FT) and 11 rebounds in 26 minutes off the bench during Friday's 124-109 loss to the 76ers.

    No Orlando starter managed more than 16 points or eight rebounds in a game that wasn't as close as its final score indicated. The double-double was Carter's second of the season in 16 games, with the other coming back on Nov. 2. The 24-year-old center has been productive since returning from a knee injury that cost him five games in January, averaging 20.0 points, 6.3 boards and 1.7 threes in 23.0 minutes over the last three games while shooting 71.0 percent from the floor and 55.6 percent from beyond the arc. Goga Bitadze has remained the starter at center for now, but he played only 16 minutes Friday.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Surpasses restriction in return

    Carter (knee) totaled 17 points (7-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and one block across 19 minutes in Monday's 98-94 win over the Knicks.

    Though head coach Jamahl Mosley said prior to the contest that Carter would be limited to 12-to-16 minutes in his return from a five-game absence due to right knee tendinitis, the center ended up slightly pushing past the playing-time restriction. Carter and starter Goga Bitadze (29 minutes) ended up playing the whole game at center, resulting in Moritz Wagner dropping out of the rotation. The Magic seem to like the shot-blocking presence that Bitadze brings on the top unit, and though he could continue to start for the time being, Carter may eventually end up working his way into a more even split of the minutes with Bitadze, if not the larger portion of a timeshare.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: On restriction in return

    Magic head coach Jamahl Mosley said Carter (knee) will be on a 12-to-16-minute restriction in Monday's game against the Knicks, Jason Beede of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

    Orlando will be mindful of keeping Carter's workload in check while he makes his return from a five-game absence due to right knee tendinitis. Goga Bitadze will continue to start at center, but Carter could eventually supplant him atop the depth chart once he gets fully ramped up over the course of a few games.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Cleared to play

    Carter (knee) will be available for Monday's game against the Knicks.

    Carter has the green light to return from a five-game absence after making it through warmups without any setbacks. While the Magic haven't specified whether he'll be on a minute restriction, Carter will come off the bench and likely serve as the top backup to starting center Goga Bitadze.

    Carter (knee) is questionable for Monday's game against the Knicks, Wendell Epps of Bally Sports Florida reports.

    Carter is in danger of missing a sixth straight game due to right knee tendinitis. If he's sidelined again, Goga Bitadze and Moritz Wagner should continue to garner increased roles.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Ruled out

    Carter (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Hawks.

    Carter will miss a second straight game due to right knee tendinitis. However, Goga Bitadze (illness), Anthony Black (illness) and Markelle Fultz (knee) have been upgraded to available. Carter's next chance to suit up will come Tuesday versus Minnesota, but Orlando figures to be cautious with Carter, who's already missed extensive time this season due to multiple injuries.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Listed as questionable

    Carter (knee) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Hawks.

    Carter is in danger of missing his second straight game due to a knee issue. Goga Bitadze (illness) is also questionable, so there is potential for a thin Magic frontcourt. More clarity on Carter's status should come once he tests things out during pregame warmups.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Ruled out against Denver

    Carter (knee) will not play in Friday's game versus Denver.

    Carter will be held out Friday after making three straight appearances off the bench. Goga Bitadze is a late scratch Friday due to an illness, so the Magic are likely going to rely heavily on Moritz Wagner.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Questionable against Denver

    Carter is questionable for Friday's game against the Nuggets due to right knee tendinitis.

    Carter has come off the bench in his last three appearances, averaging 10.7 points and 4.7 rebounds in 21.7 minutes per game. It's not yet clear whether he'll be available for Friday's matchup, but Goga Bitadze and Moritz Wagner will likely see additional minutes if Carter is out.

  • Magic's Wendell Carter: Efficient as scoring threat

    Carter provided 17 points (6-7 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and two assists across 24 minutes during Sunday's 112-107 loss to the Suns.

    After being a late scratch in the previous game, Carter came off the bench, while Goga Bitadze remained the starting center. However, Carter made a strong case to recover his role with the first unit after missing just one shot from the field in 24 minutes. Carter has scored in double digits just three times this season, and the 17-point output was his best mark of the campaign, though he's missed most of the season due to various injuries.
