At first it seemed like a minor ankle injury, but Paolo Banchero is set to miss yet another week of basketball after missing the final four games of the seven-game homestand. The Magic ended up going 3-4 in this stretch at Amway Center, but it ended on a real sour note with a low-energy loss to Charlotte (who had lost 8 straight) and were outclassed by Minnesota.
While Bol Bol has been quite the spectacle, the Magic have just had far too many injuries to properly evaluate the '22-'23 roster and Coach Mosley. You could field an entire team out of the guys in street clothes on the bench. Wendell Carter looks like he'll have to battle through plantar fasciitis. The good news it that it sounds like Gary Harris will be returning soon.
Kravitz and I discuss the Minnesota loss and the current state of the Magic in the podcast clip below.
