Orlando Magic Roster
- Eastern Southeast
- Amway Center
Orlando Magic rookie point guard Cole Anthony scored 10 points off the bench in Wednesday's win over the Bulls. Since returning to the team following injury, Anthony has scored in double figures in four of five games. Wednesday, the promising young player was 5-for-6 from the floor and also added five assists and three rebounds. You'd like to see him get more minutes before fully trusting him in season-long and DFS contests, but he's definitely trending in the right direction for now. Keep an eye on Anthony.
Orlando Magic center Wendell Carter Jr. scored 19 points on 8-for-16 shooting in Wednesday's game against the Chicago Bulls, the team that drafted him. In addition, he grabbed 12 rebounds and blocked one shot. Carter also posted four assists and two steals. Carter has scored at least eight points in each of his games in Orlando, plus has six or more rebounds in all but one of those games. He'll play the Raptors on Friday and should be in line for a solid showing to help fantasy managers.
Orlando Magic guard Gary Harris (rest) and Chuma Okeke (hip) are suiting up for Wednesday's contest against the Bulls. Harris returns after a one-game absence due to rest, meaning Dwayne Bacon will go back to a bench role. Okeke is dealing with a hip ailment and will be on a minutes' restriction once again- knocking some shine off of his potential DFS value.
Orlando Magic center Mo Bamba (hip) will not play Wednesday against the Chicago Bulls. Bamba suffered a hip injury in their last game and was questionable to play here, but does not feel good enough to give it a go. Wendell Carter Jr. should see big minutes against his former team while Robert Franks will act as the backup center. Carter should be a popular play in DFS on Wednesday.
Orlando Magic center Mo Bamba (hip) is questionable for Tuesday's matchup against Chicago. Bamba suffered a bruised left hip in the first quarter of Monday night's game against San Antonio. He did not return. If he can't suit up against the Bulls, look for Wendell Carter to get some additional run against his former team.
