RT @JoshuaBRobbins: In a teleconference with reporters, when asked about Jonathan Isaac's availability to play during the restart, Weltman indicated that J.I. is unlikely to play. "He's at the stage where he can do a little light court stuff, but that's about it," Weltman said.
Congratulations to the Vučević family on their new addition
On his Zoom call with reporters just now, Nikola Vucevic mentioned that his wife is expecting their second child in October. Not being close to his family is yet another example of the sacrifices players throughout the league are making to go into the bubble. https://t.co/gWm22t7jEO
NBA basketball is (almost) back & all 8 of @OrlandoMagic “seeding games” will be back on @FOXSportsMagic . David Steele, the voice of the Magic, & color analyst Jeff Turner will broadcast from @AmwayCenter , while sideline reporter Dante Marchitelli will be at Disney (I think).
In a wide-ranging, 31-minute Zoom call with media today, @OrlandoMagic CEO Alex Martins ended the session the same way that he began it -- by asking that fans practice social distancing, wash their hands often and wear masks, "so that we can get back to life as normal."
This is the player that the Magic thought they were getting. Imagine him with a prime T-Mac.
To recap: No. 7 seed Nets will not send Taurean Prince (positive test, per ESPN), Kyrie Irving, Spencer Dinwiddie, Wilson Chandler, DeAndre Jordan and Kevin Durant. No. 8 seed Magic announced a positive test today. No. 9 seed Wizards won’t have Bradley Beal or Davis Bertans.
