Projected regular-season starters Victor Oladipo and Channing Frye are out indefinitely after suffering sprained knee ligaments, Orlando Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said Monday. Oladipo, a second-year guard, sprained the medial collateral ligament in his right knee after landing awkwardly during a scrimmage on Friday. Frye, a free agent pickup, suffered the same injury in his left knee during a scrimmage. Both players will miss Tuesday's preseason opener against Miami. ESPN.com

Oladipo suffered the injury when he landed following a play at the rim during a scrimmage Friday, but Oladipo completed the scrimmage. He was scheduled to practice on Saturday, but the team sent him to have an MRI because his knee was sore. The MRI revealed the sprain. “It’s tough,” Oladipo said a few minutes ago. “But, again, it’s a part of basketball. It happens. At the end of the day, I’ve just got to figure out how to stay close to my team and get better away from the court, whether it be watching film or watching the games or just improving myself mentally. It’s going to be huge.” Orlando Sentinel

Dante Exum considered attending college in the U.S., and he took his lone college visit to Indiana University, where he met Hoosiers star Victor Oladipo. Oladipo, who just completed his rookie season with the Magic, and Exum developed a rapport — one strong enough that Exum has said he's interested in playing for Orlando. Orlando Sentinel

Are the Magic the team that is highest on Exum? Seems that way based on mock drafts. Chad Ford: They want a point guard. They experimented with Victor Oladipo there, but preferably they get a young player that is more of a true point. Exum and Marcus Smart are the guys for them. They would've taken Smart No. 2 last year, but I think Exum has moved ahead. Lakers also really like Exum. So do the Jazz and Bucks. ESPN.com
