But when Silver was asked Wednesday on SiriusXM NBA Radio if the league had the authority to step in and stop the Sixers from losing on purpose, he suggested that he does not possess that authority. "Would the league step in and do what?" Silver said. "There's no magic bullet from the league office." CBSSports.com

At some point the Magic will need to re-establish Victor Oladipo's role. A current NBA coach, a former NBA coach and a current league scout tell me what he's not: Oladipo's not a point guard. It's not a surprising opinion. And it's not news to the Magic, who drafted a point guard in June after experimenting with Victor at the position last season. Orlando Sentinel

Evan Fournier’s ``samurai’’ haircut – one that features a distinctive top-knot pony tail – has become a consistent source of humor for the Orlando Magic and a spark of motivation for the standout shooting guard. Fournier, a native of suburban Paris, wore his hair long on the top and short on the sides over the summer while he playing for the French National Team in the FIBA World Cup. When Fournier’s hair kept falling down into his face during games he went to a ponytail look to solve the problem. NBA.com

That hairstyle has generated dozens of catcalls from opposing fans when the Magic play in road games. Fournier, who came into Friday’s road game in Indiana averaging a career-best 16.1 points per game, said he actually likes the taunts and jokes from the fans because they fire him up and help him lock in on the task at hand. ``I love it. Every game on the road I get two or three jokes and I think it’s funny,’’ said Fournier, who is in his first season with the Magic following a June trade with the Denver Nuggets. ``(The jokes) kind of give me motivation. They say, `Your ponytail is horrible.’ I think it’s funny, but I just don’t like it when my teammates laugh at it. But it’s part of the game and it’s fun.’’ NBA.com

“Yeah, they made shots, but we don’t lose the game like that,” Magic shooting guard Evan Fournier said. “We lose the game because we played selfish. We don’t move the ball. We’re just standing and looking at each other. We have to play better than that. If we keep playing like that, we’re not going to win any game.” Orlando Sentinel

Orlando Magic forward Aaron Gordon underwent successful surgery on Friday in Charlotte – less than two miles away from where his teammates were facing the Charlotte Hornets – to repair the fractured fifth metatarsal in his left foot, GM Rob Hennigan announced. An X-ray following last Saturday’s game in Washington, D.C. revealed the fractured bone in Gordon’s left foot. Following a consultation with specialist Dr. Bob Anderson, surgery was performed on Friday in Charlotte at Carolinas Medical-Mercy Hospital. Gordon, the youngest player in the NBA this season at 19 years old, is out indefinitely. He will be re-evaluated by the specialist again in six-to-eight weeks to gauge the healing in the surgically repaired bone. His return to game action will ultimately depend on how he responds to rehabilitation. NBA.com
