The Orlando Magic got a reprieve from injury gods with Evan Fournier’s return against the Heat this week, but it does very little to alleviate a nine-game slide coupled with the 6 to 8 week loss of Nikola Vucevic.
The Magic are freefalling, and unless Fournier and Aaron Gordon can quickly return to the lineup, a bottom five lottery finish seems all too likely.
Jonathan Isaac will not play tonight against the Pistons because Isaac reaggravated his right ankle in Miami, Frank Vogel said. Evan Fournier and Aaron Gordon will be gametime decisions, Vogel said.— Josh Robbins (@JoshuaBRobbins) December 28, 2017
Tonight the Magic face off against a Pistons team playing very well, having won five of six recently. However, they lost their floor general, Reggie Jackson to a grade III sprain in their victory over the Pacers, and may be forced to spring Langston Galloway into action in his place.
Could this confusion at arguably an offense’s greatest position slow down the surging Pistons against our crippled Magic?
Aaron Goldstone comes aboard our very first podcast to discuss the state of the Magic, Frank Vogel’s future, Elfrid Payton’s development, the Magic’s chances in tonight’s matchup and much much more.
