Orlando Magic Rumors
Murray was the fourth player to tear his A.C.L. this season, after the Nets’ Spencer Dinwiddie, Orlando’s Markelle Fultz and Washington’s Thomas Bryant. The N.B.A. has averaged roughly three A.C.L. tears per season since 2005-6, according to data maintained by Jeff Stotts on his In Street Clothes website. “We are still in the collecting phase regarding the effects of the compressed schedule at this point of the year,” Stotts said. “I am concerned we will see more soft-tissue injuries here in April. They appear to be on the rise from the rest of the season.”
Bobby Marks: 5 players out this season as a result of an ACL: Jonathan Isaac (injured in August) Spencer Dinwiddie Thomas Bryant Markelle Fultz Jamal Murray That is a high number in comparison to past years.
Roy Parry: The Magic are waiving two-way guard Karim Mane, according to league sources. This is likely the first of a series of moves as the team plans to sign F/C Donta Hall to a 10-day contract, which could come as early as Tuesday, according to sources.
