Wendell Carter Jr.
C - ORL - DTD
According to the NBA Injury Report, Wendell Carter Jr. (wrist) has been ruled out Sunday vs. the Heat.
The Magic will be without Wendell Carter, Cole Anthony, Jalen Suggs, and Franz Wagner on Sunday for their season finale. The absences of both Suggs and Anthony at guard should see Hampton and Fultz start and see 26 or more minutes each. With both Wagner and Carter out of the lineup, it clears the way for Mo Bamba to see more minutes, Mo Wagner and Ignas Brazdeikis to start.
According to Sam Perley, Wendell Carter Jr. (wrist) has been ruled out Thursday vs the Hornets.
The Magic will travel to Charlotte on Thursday to take on the Hornets but will be without Franz Wagner, Cole Anthony, and Wendell Carter Jr. Gary Harris and Admiral Schofield are both questionable to play. With a rash of starters out, we should see Markelle Fultz and RJ Hampton start alongside each other while Terrence Ross and Devin Cannady should see increased minutes.
Wendell Carter Jr. (wrist) won't play in Sunday's contest against the New York Knicks.
Carter has found himself missing a lot of games recently because of his sprained-left wrist, and that won't change Sunday. It isn't clear if or when he will be back, but fantasy managers can look for Mo Bamba and Chuma Okeke to see additional minutes in his absence.
According to the official NBA Injury Report, Magic C Wendell Carter Jr is questionable for Friday’s game against Toronto.
Carter Jr has missed four of the last seven Magic games dealing with a sprained left wrist. When he has played through the sprain, he has averaged 21.3 points and 12 rebounds in the three games he has actually played. Chuma Okeke will start if the Duke product is unavailable Friday.
Wendell Carter Jr. has been ruled out due to a left wrist injury ahead of Wednesday's game against the Wizards.
This will be Carter's third absence in four games. Chuma Okeke saw the added opportunity in the recent games Carter missed and that will likely continue to be the case for a Magic team looking to the end of the season.
