Markelle Fultz to make season debut Wednesday vs Hawks
Fultz suffered a toe injury right before the start of training camp and that is why he’s missed the first 21 games of he season for the Magic. He joins rookie Paolo Banchero as number one overall picks who are teammates. It’s unclear what his role will be with the Magic this season as he’s missed the beginning of the season where teams are just starting to build their chemistry and rotations.
The Magic have been using an extra-tall lineup this season that only features one true guard, Jalen Suggs. Franz Wagner has been playing SG, Banchero at SF, Bol Bol as PF, and then Wendell Carter Jr. at C. Unless the Magic have plans to add him to the starting lineup, Fultz will be a bench player for the Magic. Orlando just recently got back gaurd Gary Harris who’s started two games already.
Magic’s Markelle Fultz (fractured toe) is listed available to make his season debut on Wednesday vs. Atlanta.
