Top Cole Anthony News

  • Magic's Cole Anthony: Leads bench in scoring

    Anthony chipped in 13 points (5-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds and four assists in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 116-111 overtime victory over the Clippers.

    Anthony led the Orlando bench in scoring, assists, rebounds and minutes played in the overtime victory, notching his seventh double digit scoring outing of the season. Anthony has posted at least 10 points, three rebounds and three assists in three of his last four outings.

  • Magic's Cole Anthony: Scoreless across 21 minutes

    Anthony notched zero points (0-9 FG, 0-4 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist and two steals in 21 minutes during Monday's 109-102 loss to the Bucks.

    Anthony suited up for a fourth straight game following a month-long absence due to an oblique injury, but after scoring in double figures during three straight contests, the third-year guard went scoreless across 21 minutes Monday. While the poor shooting performance was a step in the wrong direction, it doesn't appear like he suffered a setback with his injury, so it can likely be chalked up to an off night. Anthony will look to get back on track Wednesday against the Clippers.

  • Magic's Cole Anthony: Scores 19 points off bench

    Anthony recorded 19 points (7-11 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists, one block and three steals over 29 minutes during Friday's 107-96 loss to Cleveland.

    Anthony has scored in double digits in his two appearances off the bench this season. Still, his role is not expected to be altered with Markelle Fultz healthy and Franz Wagner also entrenched in a starting backcourt spot. Jalen Suggs' (ankle) eventual return also could impact Anthony's role a bit.

  • Magic's Cole Anthony: Facing minutes restriction

    Anthony (oblique) will be limited to approximately 20 minutes during Wednesday's game against Atlanta, Khobi Price of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

    Anthony is available Wednesday after missing just over a month due to a right oblique injury, and he'll be eased into action during his first game back on the court. Jalen Suggs (ankle) has been ruled out for the Magic, but the team will have Markelle Fultz -- who will be restricted to approximately 15 minutes -- available for the first time this year.

  • Magic's Cole Anthony: Scores 11 points in return

    Anthony (oblique) totaled 11 points (3-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal across 24 minutes before fouling out of Wednesday's 125-108 loss to the Hawks.

    After missing over a month with an oblique injury, Anthony played 24 minutes before fouling out. He was expected to play around 20 minutes but exceeded that total despite the foul trouble. He came off the bench Wednesday, but it's probable that he'll make his way back into the starting lineup once he's closer to full strength.

  • Magic's Cole Anthony: Set to return Wednesday

    Anthony (oblique) isn't listed on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's matchup against Atlanta.

    Anthony is expected to play Wednesday for the first time since suffering a right oblique injury during an Oct. 26 loss to Cleveland. The point guard will likely be limited during his first game action in over a month, but he should still garner a decent-sized role, especially with Jalen Suggs (ankle) still sidelined. The minutes breakdown between Fultz and Anthony will be worth monitoring closely, though we won't get a fully accurate sample of what to expect long-term until Suggs is back in the mix.

  • Magic's Cole Anthony: Still out Monday

    Anthony (oblique) will not play in Monday's game against the Nets, Khobi Price of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

    Anthony has been out since late October due to a right oblique injury, but he has expressed optimism a return to the court is soon to come. Joining Anthony on the sideline Monday are Markelle Fultz (toe), Jalen Suggs (ankle) and Terrence Ross (illness), which leaves R.J. Hampton, Franz Wagner and Gary Harris to handle most of the backcourt minutes. Anthony's next chance to take the floor will come Wednesday against Atlanta.

  • Magic's Cole Anthony: Remains sidelined Sunday

    Anthony (oblique) is out for Sunday's game against the 76ers.

    Anthony hasn't played since Oct. 26 due to a right oblique tear. However, Anthony did tease his return on his Instagram, so it is possible that he could be available for Monday's game against the Nets.

  • Magic's Cole Anthony: Gets shots up Wednesday

    Anthony (oblique) went through shooting drills following the team's morning shootaround Wednesday, Khobi Price of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

    Anthony hasn't played since Oct. 26 and will likely remain out through Thanksgiving due to an oblique injury, but it's still encouraging to see him participate in basketball activities. In his absence, Jalen Suggs, R.J. Hampton and Terrence Ross have all garnered increased roles.

  • Magic's Cole Anthony: Out through Thanksgiving

    Anthony (oblique) is expected to remain out into late November, Khobi Price of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

    Anthony has missed four straight contests for the Magic after suffering an oblique injury and was initially not given a timetable for return. However, it is reported that he could return in a few weeks. In his absence, Jalen Suggs and R.J. Hampton will continue to see extended run.

  • Magic's Cole Anthony: Remains out Saturday

    Anthony (oblique) will remain out for Saturday's game against the Kings, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Anthony will miss a fifth consecutive game due to an oblique injury and remains without a timetable for a return. His next chance to suit up will come on Monday against the Rockets.

  • Magic's Cole Anthony: Team option exercised

    The Magic exercised Anthony's (oblique) $5.54 million team option for the 2023-24 season Friday.

    Anthony is dealing with a right internal oblique muscle injury and doesn't yet have a timetable for his return, but he'll unsurprisingly have his fourth-year option picked up by Orlando. The 22-year-old has averaged 15.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 4.3 assists in 30.3 minutes per game over his first four appearances of the year.

  • Magic's Cole Anthony: Sidelined with oblique strain

    Anthony was diagnosed Thursday with a right internal oblique muscle injury, with a timeline for his return set to be determined based on how he responds to rehabilitation and treatment, Dan Savage of the Magic's official site reports.

    The Magic were already without five players due to injuries in Wednesday's 103-92 loss to the Cavaliers, and the team will be down another key contributor in Anthony. Though a timeline for Anthony's return hasn't been established, he'll presumably miss games Friday against the Hornets and Sunday in Dallas, with his absence likely to extend into the upcoming week. With all of Anthony, Markelle Fultz (toe) and Jalen Suggs (ankle) set to sit out Friday, the Magic will likely turn to Franz Wagner and Paolo Banchero to absorb more playmaking responsibilities, while reserve guard R.J. Hampton should benefit from a big boost in playing time.

  • Magic's Cole Anthony: Scores 25 off bench

    Anthony ended Friday's 108-98 loss to the Hawks with 25 points (8-12 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 5-7 FT), two assists, one block and a steal across 28 minutes.

    Anthony helped the Magic jump out to an early lead with eight first-quarter points on 3-of-3 shooting while also knocking down both of his free-throw attempts in the period. He followed that up by going a perfect 3-of-3 from three-point range in the second quarter, two of which came off assists from Terrence Ross, to give Anthony 17 points at the half. Despite the hot start off the bench, the Magic forward only took four shots in the second half, making two of them while also knocking down three of five free-throw attempts as the Hawks took the lead down the stretch.

  • Magic's Cole Anthony: Available off bench

    Anthony (illness) is active for Friday's matchup with the Hawks but will come off the bench, Jake Chapman reports.

    Anthony was a late scratch in the season opener due to a non-Covid illness but will be back in action Friday. Considering he entered the day as a game-time decision and is coming off the bench, the Magic will likely monitor his workload. Orlando will start the same lineup as the season opener, with Jalen Suggs operating as the point guard.

  • Magic's Cole Anthony: Viewed as GTD

    Anthony (illness) participated in morning shootaround Friday but is considered a game-time decision for the evening's contest versus the Hawks, Dan Savage of the Magic's official site reports.

    Anthony came down with the illness shortly before the opener Wednesday and was ultimately scratched from the contest, leading to Jalen Suggs making a spot start and posting a solid effort. Suggs would likely get another look with the unit Friday if Anthony can't suit up.

  • Magic's Cole Anthony: Questionable at Atlanta

    Anthony (illness) is questionable for Friday's game against the Hawks.

    Anthony was a late scratch for Wednesday's opener and didn't practice Thursday, but it's possible he recovers more overnight and is fine Friday. If he's cleared, there's a good chance he joins the starting lineup, which would presumably push Jalen Suggs to the bench.

  • Magic's Cole Anthony: Doesn't practice Thursday

    Anthony (illness) didn't participate in Thursday's practice session, Khobi Price of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

    Anthony was a late scratch for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Pistons due to his illness, and he wasn't feeling well enough to return to practice a day later. It's unclear whether he'll be available for Friday's matchup against Atlanta.
