Franz Wagner News
Orlando Magic forward Franz Wagner (ankle) sprained his ankle in the third quarter during Germany's EuroBasket win over Montenegro on Saturday. He didn't return to the contest and is questionable for the team's next matchup on Tuesday. The 21-year-old is coming off a fantastic rookie campaign by averaging 15.2 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 2.9 assists in 79 games. It's unknown how serious his current injury is. However, with training camp beginning in a few weeks, Wagner's status is currently up in the air.
Orlando Magic power forward/center Wendell Carter Jr. (wrist) and small forward Franz Wagner (wrist) will miss Sunday's season finale vs. Miami. Carter enjoyed a breakout campaign in 2021-22, having averaged a double-double (15 points, 10.5 rebounds) across his 62 games. Wagner is a candidate for First-team All-Rookie honors after averaging 15.2 points on 46.8% shooting across 79 outings. Their absence Sunday will pave the way for Terrence Ross, Chuma Okeke, and Moritz Wagner to all take on larger roles, upping the trio's DFS intrigue.
Orlando Magic forward Franz Wagner (ankle) will not be suiting up for Thursday night's contest against the Charlotte Hornets. The rookie suffered a right ankle sprain in Tuesday's game. He left the game in the first quarter and did not return. With Wagner sidelined, we should see fellow University of Michigan alum Ignas Brazdeikis earn some big minutes. Brazdeikis played 36 minutes in Tuesday's game and racked up 20 points and six boards while shooting 8-for-16 from the field. Wagner's next chance to play will be on Sunday for the team's final game of the year against the Miami Heat.
Orlando Magic forward Franz Wagner (ankle) was taken to the locker room in the first quarter of Tuesday night's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The rookie sensation had missed the team's last game due to a sprained left ankle, but in Tuesday's game, he suffered an ankle sprain to his right ankle. The Magic will certainly be cautious with him and while he hasn't been ruled out yet, he may be doubtful to return. Fellow former Wolverine Ignas Brazdeikis should see increased minutes on Tuesday while Wagner is out.
