Storyline: The Magic, in their second Summer League game, will be without Mo Bamba, who will sit out for apparent load management reasons. Bamba scored 15 points in 15 minutes during the Magic’s victory over the Spurs on Friday, which was stopped after the third quarter due to the earthquake on the West Coast. Amile Jefferson will get the start in Bamba’s place. The Nuggets will make their Summer League debut, after their originally scheduled game on Friday. Tobias Harris’ younger brother, Tyler, is on the roster.
The Magic will hold Mo Bamba out of this afternoon's summer league exhibition. Bamba is fine, with no issues following Friday's exhibition game. But the team is taking a conservative approach to his minutes. Bamba never was expected to play in all of Orlando's summer exhibitions.— Josh Robbins (@JoshuaBRobbins) July 7, 2019
.@OrlandoMagic will start C Amile Jefferson today vs. @nuggets in Summer League action. Mo Bamba is OUT as a precautionary measure as ORL manages his minutes and workload. Bamba has fully recovered from the stress fracture in his left leg that ended his rookie season.— John Denton (@JohnDenton555) July 7, 2019
