The Magic were left without Wendell Carter Jr.
The worst omens were confirmed with Wendell Carter Jr. According to the Orlando Magic newspaper, their center will have to undergo surgery to repair a broken finger, a problem that will lead to him being sidelined for at least three weeks, at which time the service doctors from the Florida franchise will re-evaluate the center’s condition.
The illness occurred in the game that the Magic played (and won) against Utah last Thursday. Carter Jr. fought for a rebound in the final seconds of that game and fell on his left hand, injuring his third metatarsal.
Reduction from center It’s a significant blow for those from Florida, who have started the campaign very well to currently sit in fourth place in the Eastern Conference with a 4-2 record. To achieve that many wins, Carter Jr. would have to contribute 9.4 points and 8.6 rebounds.
In the first game without his starting position, which arrived last weekend against the Los Angeles Lakers, Orlando coach Jamal Moseley chose to give Goga Bitadze the opportunity to start, who in principle would be the one who continues to occupy such a gap at the position. List with a strong performance of 10 points and 10 rebounds.
