You can correctly cite the fact that the Magic have been such noise statistical stoppers because their preseason schedule included the hapless Sixers and Indiana Pacers, but know this: You are no fun at parties.

Oct. 23, the official launch of the team relayed the news:
Orlando Magic guard Victor Oladipo will probably be out indefinitely after suffering a facial fracture in clinic Thursday, General Manager Rob Hennigan declared today.
Oladipo, who was assessed Thursday afternoon, will undergo a surgical procedure on Saturday. He had been hurt after taking an elbow in a practice drill.
Oladipo, a year’s lottery pick and a person the Magic expected would require a jump this year, was already battling a bad knee during the preseason. Neither he nor Orlando desired this.

Looks like Ben Gordon is in the combination to start at guard. That is less good.
