Elfrid Payton is a sneaky Rookie of the Year candidate, Nikola Vucevic just filmed a reasonably priced extension and the Orlando Magic’s defense has allowed an exceptionally stingy 97.2 points per 100 possessions during preseason play, according to RealGM.com.
You can accurately cite how the Magic have been such noise statistical stoppers because 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 injury.
Oct. 23 the team release relayed the information that was buzz-killing:
Orlando Magic guard Victor Oladipo will be out indefinitely after suffering a facial break in clinic Thursday, General Manager Rob Hennigan declared now.
Oladipo, who was assessed Thursday afternoon, will undergo a surgical procedure. After taking an elbow during a practice 12, he had been hurt.
Oladipo, a year’s lottery selection and a person the Magic hoped would take a leap this year, was battling a bad knee during the preseason. Neither he nor Orlando desired this.
Looks like Payton is going to have a chance to show himself. That’s good.
Seems like Ben Gordon is in the mix to start at shooting guard. That is less good.
Hurry back, Victor.
