Magic forward Payne breaks hand

Magic forward Adreian Payne has spent time both with the Timberwolves and in the G-League.

Orlando Magic forward Adreian Payne fractured his left hand during practice Wednesday, the team announced.

He is out indefinitely.

Payne, a former first-round draft pick, is in his first season with Magic after signing a two-way contract in August.

He is 6-foot-9 and appeared in 18 games with the Minnesota Timberwolves last season, averaging 3.5 points. He was drafted 15th overall by the Atlanta Hawks in 2014.

“He is the highest-drafted player to agree to a two-way deal, which limits his time in the NBA this season to 45 days,” Hoops Rumors wrote. “Orlando still has another two-way slot available.”
