Well, if Orlando loses by less than 20, I guess that's a moral victory.

He did? Wow missed it. Was it underwhelming? I would have thought there was gonna be news on that. Unless he couldn't produce like he used to.

If Chuma's wearing a boot, he'll likely be out for the year.

I think he will be shut down regardless as a precaution.

There is barely two weeks left.

For the season maybe not for the year. Unless the injury is worse than we thought?

While I say "Let's Go Magic!", I want The Magic to play well, be in each game but not win too many games so they maintain their Lottery position. This helps increase their Top-4 odds and also decreases how far they can fall back.

Embarrassing for both the magic and Bamba… more so for a team that uses a high lotto pick on a player and never gives him a real opportunity 3 years in… all while a scrub that is cut multiple time this year, walks on and gets the start.

We are starting with a kind of big lineup tonight. Mo Wagner will get an extended test drive tonight, maybe in the near future as well. I am starting to like that German guy, he is serviceable and might be useful next year from the bench, especially if we get rid of Bambi in the summer.

Not a good look for Slo' Mo' if he's fallen behind yet another newcomer on this team in an injury-riddled season. Ty Corbin is not a fan of his talents as well.

Yeah a tanking year and he's averaging 13.8 mpg.
