Magic's Wendell Carter: Turns away two shots in loss
Carter finished Tuesday's 113-108 loss to the Grizzlies with 14 points (5-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in 29 minutes.
Carter has fallen short of a double-double in four straight games, but he's still chugging along nicely during that stretch with average or above-average contributions in six categories (15.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 1.8 three-pointers and 0.8 blocks per game, 55.8 percent shooting from the field, 84.6 percent from the free-throw line). The Magic are 4.5 games behind the Bulls for the final spot in the Eastern Conference Play-In Tournament, but head coach Jamahl Mosley has thus far shown no inclination to shut down Carter or any of the team's other top contributors....

Magic's Wendell Carter: Top rebounder in near double-double
Carter logged 16 points (7-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 0-1 FT) and eight rebounds over 31 minutes during Thursday's 111-106 win over the Knicks.
Carter led the Magic in rebounds while finishing as one of six players in double figures in scoring and ending two boards short of notching a double-double. Carter has posted at least 15 points with five or more rebounds on 29 occasions this year, including in six of his last seven outings.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Wendell Carter: Dominates in upset victory
Carter amassed 27 points (11-19 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and three steals across 33 minutes during Saturday's 113-108 win over the Clippers.
Carter was on a mission Saturday, rocking a healthy double-double while adding season-high totals in both blocks and steals. Despite sitting outside the top 100 thus far this season, he has been putting up first-round value over the past two weeks. The Magic don't feel as though they are going to ease up down the stretch, meaning Carter should be locked into heavy minutes, barring any injuries.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Wendell Carter: Explosive outing in return
Carter (hip) notched 27 points (12-17 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 42 minutes during Saturday's 126-114 overtime victory over Miami.
After missing the Magic's previous three games with a hip injury, Carter looked to be fully healthy Saturday while logging a massive workload as the team's starting center. Miami had no answer for Carter inside, where he was a perfect 9-of-9 around the rim. Assuming Carter experiences no setbacks with his hip coming out of Saturday's game, he should be ready to go when the Magic kick off a four-game week Tuesday in San Antonio. The final two games of the week are part of a Saturday/Sunday back-to-back set versus the two Los Angeles teams, however, so Carter could be a candidate to sit out one of those contests....

Magic's Wendell Carter: Will be back in action Saturday
Carter (hip) is not on the injury report ahead of Saturday's game against the Heat.
The Magic's starting center will return following a three-game absence, so Moritz Wagner will presumably head back to the bench. Over Carter's past 10 appearances, he's averaged 15.0 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 28.0 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Wendell Carter: Sidelined again Thursday
Carter (hip) remains out for Thursday's contest versus the Jazz.
Carter will skip a third consecutive tilt with soreness in his left hip, and the Magic don't have much reason to rush him back to action. Moritz Wagner should receive another start at center in his absence, with Goga Bitadze also potentially factoring in. Carter's next opportunity to return surfaces Saturday versus the Heat....

Magic's Wendell Carter: Downgraded to out
Carter (hip) has been ruled out for Tuesday's matchup against the Bucks.
Carter will miss a second straight game due to left hip pain. In his absence, Moritz Wagner figures to draw another start. Carter's next chance to suit up will come Thursday against the Jazz.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Wendell Carter: Listed as questionable
Carter (hip) is questionable for Tuesday's matchup against the Bucks.
Carter was a late scratch ahead of Sunday's game against Portland due to left hip pain and is in danger of missing a second straight contest. If that's the case, Moritz Wagner would likely draw another start at center.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Wendell Carter: Late scratch Sunday
Carter has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against Portland due to left hip pain.
Carter was announced as a starter, but the Magic downgraded him to out just minutes later. The severity of the issue remains unclear, but Moritz Wagner will enter the starting lineup in Carter's absence and figures to garner an increased role versus the Trail Blazers. Carter's next chance to suit up will come Tuesday against Milwaukee, but Orlando will likely release an update on his status following Sunday's game.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Wendell Carter: Second straight double-double
Carter logged 19 points (6-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-8 FT), 10 rebounds and one block in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 139-117 loss to the Bucks.
Carter put together a solid first half with 12 points on 4-of-9 shooting from the field, with six rebounds and a block. He added another seven points and four boards in the third quarter before sitting for all of the fourth while the Bucks ran away with their 16th consecutive win. Carter still finished with a game-high 10 rebounds and has now recorded a double-double in back-to-back games. He's also grabbed at least 10 boards in four straight.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Wendell Carter: Minutes down again Monday
Carter played 25 minutes and finished with 11 points (4-8 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist and one steal in Monday's 101-93 win over the Pelicans.
After logging no fewer than 30 minutes in four consecutive games from Feb. 11 through 23, Carter has now received 18- and 25-minute workloads over his last two outings. Foul trouble contributed to the lighter playing time in the previous contest, and though he was charged with just three personals Monday, two came within the game's first two minutes. Carter ended up riding the bench for most of the first half as a result, but fantasy managers shouldn't expect the trend to continue so long as he can do a better job of avoiding early whistles in future games....

Magic's Wendell Carter: Tips in game-winner
Carter chipped in 14 points (5-13 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 14 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in 32 minutes during Thursday's 108-106 victory over Detroit.
Carter got off to a slow start offensively with five points on 2-of-8 shooting in the first half, but he added five boards and two assists. The big man took only five more shots after the break but made three of them for another nine points while grabbing another nine boards. He also played the role of hero in the fourth quarter, tipping in a missed layup from Paolo Banchero at the buzzer to seal up the home win for Orlando. Carter's 14 boards led the contest, and it was his first time with double-digit rebounds in five games. He's now up to 14 double-doubles on the season.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Wendell Carter: Scores team-high 26 points
Carter chipped in 26 points (11-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-3 FT), six rebounds, five assists and one steal in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 123-113 loss to the Raptors.
Carter brought his offensive game Tuesday, popping off for his most points in any contest since early November. Contrary to what many might think, Carter has been somewhat of a disappointment relative to his average draft position, as he currently sits outside the top 100 for the season on a per-game basis in nine-category leagues. While his point and rebound totals have been adequate, Carter has come up short on the defensive end. He's averaging 1.0 combined steals and blocks for the season, well below where managers would have expected.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Wendell Carter: Game-high 19 points in win
Carter logged 19 points (7-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-6 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one block across 29 minutes during Thursday's 115-104 win over the Nuggets.
Carter got off to a solid start with 10 first-half points on 4-of-7 shooting from the floor to go along with six rebounds and two assists. The big man remained efficient after the break, connecting on three of four field-goal attempts to finish with a team-high 19 points, but he surprisingly failed to record any rebounds over the final two quarters. Carter has now grabbed just six boards in each of his last two games, though he's still averaging 9.3 rebounds per game so far in the month of February.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Wendell Carter: Double-double in return
Carter (foot) amassed 20 points (7-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 12 rebounds and three assists over 29 minutes during Sunday's 119-113 victory over the Hornets.
The fifth-year center missed Friday's game due to plantar fasciitis in his right foot, but the breather did Carter some good as he scored 20 or more points for just the third time in 16 games since the beginning of January while delivering his 13th double-double of the season. Since the calendar flipped to 2023, the 23-year-old is averaging 14.1 points, 9.3 boards, 2.1 assists and 1.3 threes in 29.1 minutes a contest.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Wendell Carter: Cleared to play Saturday
Carter (foot) will start at center in Sunday's game against the Hornets.
After sitting out Friday's win over the Timberwolves, Magic head coach Jamahl Mosley labeled Carter as a game-time decision leading up to Sunday's 1 p.m. ET opening tip. Ultimately, Carter will be able to play through a right foot plantar fascia strain, though the Magic could monitor his playing time more closely than normal. Before sitting out Friday, Carter had played in 15 consecutive games and averaged 13.7 points, 9.1 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.2 three-pointers in 29.1 minutes per contest.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Wendell Carter: Iffy for Sunday
Orlando head coach Jamahl Mosley said Carter (foot) is considered a game-time call ahead of Sunday's game against Charlotte, Sam Perley of the Hornets' official site reports.
Though Carter doesn't appear on the Magic's most recent injury report released prior to Sunday's 1 p.m. ET opening tip, the team reportedly remains undecided if Carter will be able to play through the right foot plantar fascia strain that kept him sidelined for Friday's win over the Timberwolves. The same injury kept Carter on the bench for just over a month earlier this season, so the Magic could be inclined to err on the side of caution and hold the big man out once again. If Carter is ruled out Sunday, Moritz Wagner would likely move into the starting five and could take on major minutes while the Magic are already down another center in Mo Bamba, who will begin serving his four-game suspension in Charlotte....

Magic's Wendell Carter: Off injury report
Carter (foot) is off the injury report for Sunday's game against the Hornets.
Carter will return following a one-game absence due to plantar fasciitis in his right foot. Before that, he appeared in 15 consecutive games and averaged 13.7 points, 9.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 29.1 minutes.... See More ... See Less
