Elfrid Payton is a sneaky Rookie of the Year candidate, Nikola Vucevic just filmed a reasonably priced extension and the Orlando Magic’s defense has allowed an exceptionally stingy 97.2 points per 100 possessions during preseason play, according to RealGM.com.
You can correctly cite the fact that the Magic are such sound statistical stoppers since their preseason schedule comprised the hapless Sixers and Indiana Pacers, but understand this: You are no fun at parties.
Additionally decidedly unfun: Victor Oladipo’s being sidelined for a little while with a horrible injury.
Oct. 23, the official release of the team relayed the information:
Orlando Magic guard Victor Oladipo will be out indefinitely after suffering a facial break in clinic Thursday, General Manager Rob Hennigan declared today.
Thursday afternoon oladipo, who had been assessed, will experience a corrective procedure on Saturday. After taking an accidental elbow he had been injured.
Oladipo, last year’s lottery selection and someone the Magic expected would require a leap this year, was battling a terrible knee during the preseason. Neither he nor Orlando desired this.

Looks like Ben Gordon is in the combination to start at shooting guard. That good.
