  • Magic's Goga Bitadze: Used sparingly in loss

    Bitadze finished with no counting stats over two minutes during Tuesday's 118-106 loss to Houston.

    Bitadze continues to play as the third-string center for the Magic, logging fewer than 10 minutes for the 16th straight game. Given he has failed to see the floor in eight of those games, there is no reason to speculate that he might have a meaningful role down the stretch.

  • Magic's Goga Bitadze: Back to bench

    Bitadze will return to a reserve role in Friday's matchup with the Knicks.

    Bitadze replaced Wendell Carter (knee) as a starter in the Magic's previous game. With the latter healthy enough to return, Bitadze will return to his usual role as a reserve.

  • Magic's Goga Bitadze: Starting sans Carter

    Bitadze will start Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

    Wendell Carter (knee) is getting the second night of a back-to-back off, so Bitadze will draw his 33rd start of the season despite not being a regular part of the rotation the last few games. Bitadze has averaged 7.6 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.8 blocks and 0.8 steals in 23.8 minutes as a starter this season.

  • Magic's Goga Bitadze: Back to bench

    Bitadze won't start Tuesday's game against the Nets.

    Paolo Banchero (illness) remains out for a second straight game, but the Magic are switching up their first five after starting Bitadze and Wendell Carter in the frontcourt during Sunday's loss to Atlanta. Gary Harris and Caleb Houstan are the new additions to the starting lineup, while Bitadze and Anthony Black will operate off the bench.

  • Magic's Goga Bitadze: Starting against Atlanta

    Bitadze is starting Sunday's game against Atlanta, Wendell Epps of Bally Sports Florida reports.

    Bitadze has been an inconsistent part of Orlando's rotation recently, but he'll join the starting lineup Sunday since Paolo Banchero (illness) has been ruled out. Over 31 starts this year, Bitadze has averaged 7.8 points and 7.4 rebounds in 24.0 minutes per game.

  • Magic's Goga Bitadze: Excised from rotation

    Bitadze (coach's decision) went unused off the bench in Sunday's 105-87 win over the Heat.

    Following Wendell Carter's return from a five-game absence Jan. 15, Bitadze had maintained his spot in the starting five for the ensuing three contests, but he dropped to the bench Sunday with Carter being awarded his first start since Dec. 27. Bitadze ended up moving out of the rotation entirely, as head coach Jamahl Mosely elected to deploy Moritz Wagner as the center on the second unit rather than Bitadze when Carter was off the floor. Though Wagner isn't as skilled of a rim protector as Bitadze, power forward Jonathan Isaac is a rangy shot blocker off the bench, and Wagner provides the Magic with more of a floor-spacing element than Bitadze. With that in mind, it's conceivable that Bitadze continues to find himself outside of the rotation more often than not moving forward, assuming Carter continues to start.

  • Magic's Goga Bitadze: Coming off bench Sunday

    Bitadze is coming off the bench for Sunday's game against the Heat, Jason Beede of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

    Bitadze started in his last 11 appearances and averaged 6.9 points and 8.0 rebounds in 23.7 minutes per game during that time. However, he'll retreat to the bench with Wendell Carter starting against Miami.

  • Magic's Goga Bitadze: Records double-double in loss

    Bitadze provided 10 points (5-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 10 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 106-104 loss to Atlanta.

    Bitadze has done a good job playing a starting role in recent weeks, and his two-way contributions have made him a valuable contributor for the Magic while also pushing him to fantasy relevancy. Through his last 10 games, Bitadze is averaging 7.4 points and 8.6 rebounds per game while shooting 62.7 percent from the field.

  • Magic's Goga Bitadze: Double-digit boards in win

    Bitadze finished Monday's 98-94 victory over the Knicks with three points (1-3 FG, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds and three assists over 29 minutes.

    Wendell Carter returned to the lineup Monday after a five-game absence due to a knee issue, but Bitadze remained in the starting five and continued to be a presence on the glass. Since moving into the starting lineup in late December, Bitadze has pulled down at least six rebounds in nine straight contests, averaging 7.1 points, 8.4 boards, 1.6 assists, 1.3 blocks and 0.8 steals in 24.6 minutes a game while shooting 62.8 percent from the floor. Monday's game was the first time in that stretch the 24-year-old center failed to record either a block or a steal.

  • Magic's Goga Bitadze: Grabs nine boards in limited time

    Bitadze ended with eight points (4-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt), nine rebounds, two assists and two steals over 22 minutes during Saturday's 112-100 loss to Oklahoma City.

    Bitadze failed to score in double digits for the third game in a row, but he continues to find ways to impact the action even if he's seeing limited minutes in a starting role. Bitadze has started in each of Orlando's last eight games, grabbing at least seven rebounds six times in that span and averaging 7.6 points with 8.1 rebounds across 24.0 minutes per game.

  • Magic's Goga Bitadze: Records double-double Sunday

    Bitadze produced 11 points (5-6 FG, 1-2 FT), 14 rebounds, three assists and two blocks over 28 minutes during Sunday's 117-110 overtime win over Atlanta.

    Bitadze was impressive on both ends of the court Sunday, grabbing double-digit rebounds for the fifth time this season and posting his 12th outing with 10 or more points. Bitadze is having a strong season and seems to have settled in well in a starting role, though the injury issues of Wendell Carter (knee) have pushed him into a more prominent role. He's averaging 8.6 points and 7.3 rebounds per game in 25 starts so far.

  • Magic's Goga Bitadze: Good to go

    Bitadze (illness) is available and will start Sunday's game against the Hawks.

    Bitadze has been upgraded from questionable to available and will suit up after missing the previous contest due to an illness. With Wendell Carter (knee) sidelined, Bitadze and Moritz Wagner should garner major roles in Orlando's frontcourt. Over his last four appearances (all starts), Bitadze has averaged 9.5 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 26.5 minutes per game.
