Pregame Notes

-Franz Wagner, who rolled his ankle 20 seconds into Friday’s contest against the Raptors, will be missing the first game of his career tonight against the Knicks.
-Ignas Brazdeikis will be making his first career start in F. Wagner’s place.
-When asked pregame about the availability of Wagner, Wendell Carter Jr., and Jalen Suggs over the remainder of the season, and if there have been any internal discussions about shutting anyone down over the last four games, Magic head coach Jamahl Mosley said “(what) we’re doing is taking it day-by-day, see how they respond (more than anything).”
