You’re able to correctly cite the fact that the Magic have been such noise statistical stoppers because their preseason schedule comprised the hapless Sixers and Indiana Pacers, but know this: You are no fun at parties.
Also decidedly unfun: Victor Oladipo’s being sidelined for a while with a injury.
The group’s official launch relayed the information that was buzz-killing Oct. 23:
Orlando Magic guard Victor Oladipo will probably be out indefinitely after suffering a facial fracture in clinic Thursday, General Manager Rob Hennigan announced today.
Thursday afternoon oladipo, who was evaluated, will undergo a corrective procedure. He was hurt after taking an elbow during a practice drill.
Oladipo, a year’s lottery selection and someone the Magic expected would require a jump this season, was battling a terrible knee during the preseason. Neither he nor Orlando needed this.
