Magic's Jonathan Isaac: Iffy for Friday
Isaac (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game against Washington.
Isaac has missed the last two games due to left ankle soreness, but he was considered a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup against the Wizards. It wouldn't be surprising to see Orlando monitor him again in the hours leading up to Friday's rematch, but Joe Ingles and Moritz Wagner could see increased roles if Isaac remains out....

Magic's Markelle Fultz: Remains out Friday
Fultz (knee) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Wizards.
Fultz has been out since Nov. 9 due to left knee tendinitis, and it's not yet clear when he'll be able to return to game action. Jalen Suggs and Anthony Black should continue to see increased run Friday.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Wendell Carter: Won't play Friday
Carter (finger) has been ruled out for Friday's game against Washington.
Carter will be sidelined for a 14th consecutive game due to a fractured third metacarpal in his left hand, but he returned to on-court individual drills during Tuesday's practice after having his cast removed. It's not yet clear when he'll return to game action, but he seems to be trending in the right direction.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Paolo Banchero: Likely to play Friday
Banchero (ankle) is probable for Friday's game against the Wizards.
Banchero turned his right ankle in the third quarter of Wednesday's win over Washington and has been diagnosed with a sprain. However, he'll likely be able to suit up in the first half of a back-to-back set Friday. He was limited to six points in 27 minutes during Wednesday's matchup but had topped 20 points in his previous five appearances.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Cole Anthony: Drops 25 points off bench
Anthony ended Wednesday's 139-120 win over the Wizards with 25 points (9-16 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), six rebounds, five assists and two blocks across 26 minutes.
Anthony has consistently scored in double figures early in the season, but he's reached another level in recent matchups, scoring 20-plus points in three of his last four appearances. He's also been productive in secondary categories during that time and has averaged 22.8 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.5 assists in 29.0 minutes per game. He's shot 50 percent from the floor during his recent hot stretch, and it wouldn't be surprising to see his scoring results decrease once his shooting percentage regresses to the mean....

Magic's Joe Ingles: Efficient in victory
Ingles finished with 12 points (5-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, six assists and one steal over 20 minutes during Wednesday's 139-120 win over the Wizards.
Ingles's 12 points tied his season high in Wednesday's win. The veteran forward has been an important bench contributor to Orlando's eight-game winning streak. Ingles is averaging 5.8 points, 3.6 assists and 2.6 rebounds on 51.5/42.1/100 shooting splits over that span.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Franz Wagner: Continues to flourish
Wagner ended Wednesday's 139-120 victory over Washington with 31 points (11-14 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, three assists and one block in 31 minutes.
Wagner has now scored at least 30 points in back-to-back games and has just six such performances in his career. After struggling with his efficiency to start the year, Wagner is now shooting 59.8 percent from the field and 39.1 percent on 4.6 three-point attempts across his last five outings.... See More ...

Magic's Paolo Banchero: Hurts ankle Wednesday
Magic head coach Jamahl Mosley said after Wednesday's 139-120 win over the Wizards that Banchero turned his right ankle in the third quarter of the contest and will be evaluated moving forward, Jason Beede of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Banchero was in the midst of a down night before tweaking the ankle, as he provided just six points (2-8 FG, 2-3 FT), four rebounds and four assists while turning the ball over four times in 27 minutes before sitting out the final quarter. Though Mosley didn't suggest that Banchero's injury is a major concern, the second-year big man could be at risk of missing his first game of the season when the Magic return to action Friday for a rematch with the Wizards....

Magic's Jalen Suggs: Strong two-way performance
Suggs recorded 22 points (9-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, three assists and two steals in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 139-120 victory over Washington.
Suggs' strong start to the season continued Wednesday, helping the Magic to their eighth consecutive victory. He has scored doublecdigits in 11 straight games, collecting at least one steal in all but one game all season. Although his value is heavily weighted toward his defensive contributions, he is doing more than enough to be considered a must-roster player in all formats.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Caleb Houstan: Scores nine points in win
Houstan finished with nine points (3-3 FG, 3-3 3Pt), three rebounds and one assist in 10 minutes during Wednesday's 139-120 victory over the Wizards.
Houstan logged at least nine minutes for the third straight game, scoring a season-high nine points. While he has been featured in the rotation over the past week, his production has left a little to be desired. At this point, there is no need to consider him outside of the deepest leagues....

Magic's Chuma Okeke: Rare appearance Wednesday
Okeke supplied zero points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and two assists in five minutes during Wednesday's 139-120 victory over the Wizards.
Okeke appeared for just the eighth time this season, logging five minutes in garbage time. With the Magic arguably the hottest team in the league right now, there is simply no way for Okeke to be anything more than a blowout option. Simply put, there is no need to consider him a viable fantasy asset.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Jonathan Isaac: Won't play Wednesday
Isaac (ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's matchup against the Wizards.
Isaac will miss a second straight game due to a sore left ankle. His next chance to suit up will come Friday in a rematch versus Washington, though Orlando figures to be cautious with the oft-injured forward. In Isaac's absence, Joe Ingles and Moritz Wagner are candidates for slightly increased roles.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Jonathan Isaac: Considered game-time decision
Isaac (ankle) is considered a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup against Washington, Dan Savage of the Magic's official site reports.
Isaac was labeled as questionable on Orlando's initial injury report, and the team will wait to see how he fares leading up to tipoff before determining his status. He was a late scratch for Sunday's game against the Hornets, while Joe Ingles and Moritz Wagner are candidates to see slightly larger roles if Isaac is unavailable once again.... See More ...

Magic's Jonathan Isaac: Listed as questionable
Isaac (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's matchup versus the Wizards.
Isaac was a late scratch Sunday due to a sore left ankle and may miss a second straight game Wednesday. If Isaac is sidelined again, Joe Ingles and Moritz Wagner would be candidates for increased roles off the bench.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Wendell Carter: Remains out
Carter (finger) has been ruled out for Wednesday's matchup against the Wizards.
Carter will miss a 13th straight game due to a fractured third metacarpal in his left hand. Goga Bitadze and Moritz Wagner are candidates for increased roles until Carter returns, which could be soon. Carter had his cast removed Tuesday, and the big man called it "one of the best days of [his] life." He immediately returned to on-court individual drills, but he still has some hurdles to clear before getting cleared for game action. Carter's next chance to suit up will come Friday in a rematch against Washington.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Markelle Fultz: Won't play Wednesday
Fultz (knee) will not play Wednesday versus Washington.
Fultz is still dealing with left knee tendinitis, which has sidelined him since Nov. 9. Fultz appearing in only five of Orlando's first 17 contests is an unfortunate start for the 25-year-old guard, who will be an unrestricted free agent in the coming offseason. His next opportunity to take the court will be Friday in a rematch against Washington. Jalen Suggs and Anthony Black will continue filling Fultz's void in the meantime.... See More ... See Less
