Wendell Carter Jr. News
Orlando Magic center Wendell Carter Jr. (knee) is set to miss his third consecutive game with right knee tendinitis. The 24-year-old has unfortunately been plagued with injury after injury and hasn't been able to reach his true potential. This is going to be his 24th missed game so far this season which already takes him out of the regular season award conversation. He's only been able to play 60 or more games once in his six seasons in the NBA so far. Fantasy managers will want to shift their attention to Moritz Wagner and Goga Bitadze in the meantime. Bitadze has a bit more upside, but they're both solid streaming options until Carter returns.
Orlando Magic center Wendell Carter Jr. (knee) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Atlanta Hawks. The big man will miss his second game in a row due to a lingering knee issue. His absence should mean increased playing time for Goga Bitadze and Moritz Wagner. Between the two, Bitadze is the better streaming option, assuming he gets moved into the starting lineup. The expectation is that Carter will be back soon and this is a minor issue.
Orlando Magic center Wendell Carter Jr. (knee) won't suit up for Friday's meeting with the Nuggets in Denver. Goga Bitadze (illness), Franz Wagner (ankle), and Markelle Fultz (knee) are also sidelined, so the Magic will need to go deep into their rotation to fill the void. That said, Paolo Banchero, Cole Anthony, and Jalen Suggs should be the primary scoring options. However, Chuma Okeke and Moritz Wagner, who will start, are both worth streaming.
Orlando Magic center Wendell Carter Jr. (finger) will start Wednesday's game against the Miami Heat. Carter makes his long-awaited return from a fractured third metacarpal in his left hand from Nov. 2's game against the Utah Jazz. The former No. 7 overall pick was really struggling to return fantasy value before suffering the setback, averaging just 9.4 points on 37.8% field-goal shooting and 57.1% free-throw shooting, but he did add 8.6 rebounds per game. Expect the Magic to have some form of minutes cap in mind for Carter after such a long layoff despite his appearance in their starting lineup, so he's not a must-play in his first night back on the court. Wednesday's contest also carries the lowest implied point total (218.5) of the 10-game slate. Goga Bitadze slides back into Orlando's second unit, while Moritz Wagner should lose playing time with Carter back in the fold on Wednesday.
