Scouting report
Okeke missed 13 consecutive games from Nov. 25-Dec. 18 because of left knee soreness before undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery (a chondroplasty — a procedure that involves shaving/smoothing damaged cartilage) on Dec. 19 that’s kept him sidelined for another 13 games. The Magic said in a statement at the time that he’ll be reevaluated in four weeks — this past Tuesday. Okeke hasn’t progressed to doing on-court work. He was seen on Wednesday, the team’s first practice since returning from the road trip, in the weight room at the team’s trailing facility while wearing a sleeve over his left leg. “Chuma’s still working his way back,” coach Jamahl Mosley said. “No real court sessions right now.”

Chuma Okeke will be out at least a month

Orlando Magic forward Chuma Okeke underwent an arthroscopic procedure on his left knee Monday and is expected to be out at least a month, sources told ESPN. Okeke, who sources say will be re-evaluated in four weeks, had a chondroplasty performed, which is a procedure designed to repair and reshape damaged cartilage in a joint. He has been sidelined the past 14 games with the injury.
On Tuesday, Dec. 6, with Magic players Paolo Banchero, Caleb Houstan, Terrence Ross and Chuma Okeke along with Community Ambassadors Nick Anderson and Bo Outlaw there to chaperone, 100 Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida children from three different branches were taken on a holiday shopping spree at a local Walmart. Each child received $100 Walmart gift cards courtesy of Pepsi Stronger Together prior to going shopping.  “It’s fun for everybody,” Ross said. “When they (the kids) see the Magic guys show up, it’s always a good time. They are always having fun, asking a whole bunch of questions. Any time you can do that, it’s always fun.”
