Wendell Carter Jr. News
Orlando Magic center Wendell Carter Jr. rolled to a double-double in Thursday's loss to Atlanta, notching 12 points on 4-for-11 shooting and adding 11 boards. He swatted away one shot and was 4-for-6 at the charity stripe. Carter Jr. had a very solid run for the team last month, but he then hurt his eye to miss some time and Mo Bamba took over. On Thursday, it was time for Bamba (illness) to take a seat. The Magic bigs finish the year with a nightmare of a matchup against Philly, with two games scheduled against Joel Embiid's squad. It would be a huge boost for Carter Jr. and Bamba if the Sixers would sit their star center.
Orlando Magic center Wendell Carter Jr. (eye) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus Minnesota due to a left eye abrasion. Carter's absence will mark his third contest in a row on the sidelines, paving the way for Mohamed Bamba to skyrocket in appeal in the DFS market. In his last two starts, Bamba has snared 15 and 18 boards, respectively, with a similar workload anticipated Sunday, especially when matching up with Karl-Anthony Towns. Carter hasn't reached the 30-minute plateau since April 18, so even when he returns, the Orlando frontcourt may too muddled for him to be viewed as anything other than a streamer play during season-long championship week. His next chance to return comes Tuesday against the Bucks.
Orlando Magic center Wendell Carter Jr. (eye) is questionable ahead of Sunday's matchup against the visiting Timberwolves. The former Duke Blue Devil is in danger of missing his third consecutive contest while tending to a cut around his left eye. If he doesn't play, fantasy managers should be prepared to pivot toward Mo Bamba, who had 19 rebounds and four blocks against the Hornets the other night.
Orlando Magic center Wendell Carter Jr. (eye) will sit out on Friday against the visiting Hornets. Carter is dealing with a cut around his left eye and didn't play against Boston the other night as a result. Without him, Mo Bamba should do most of the work in the middle, with the 22-year-old recording 19 points, 15 boards, four blocks, and three steals while filling in against the Celtics. Fantasy managers looking to fill a void should scoop him up off waivers immediately if he is still available.
