Markelle Fultz sidelined with fractured big left toe

Orlando Magic guard Markelle Fultz has suffered a fracture in his big left toe. No surgery is required. He has been placed in a walking boot and his return to play will depend on how he responds to rehabilitation and treatment. Fultz suffered the injury during a preseason workout prior to returning to Orlando and imaging confirmed the fracture.

Fultz played in 18 games (three starts) last season with Orlando, averaging 10.8 points, 5.5 assists, 2.7 rebounds and 1.11 steals per game in 20 minutes, while shooting 80.6% (25-31) from the free throw line. He led (or tied) the team in assists seven times. Fultz scored in double figures 13 times, including a season-high 19 points on Mar. 30 @ Washington. He dished out 10+ assists twice, including a career-high 15 assists on Apr. 10 vs. Miami, and had one double-double.

Originally selected No. 1 overall in the 2017 NBA Draft by Philadelphia, Fultz has appeared in 131 career NBA regular season games (86 starts) with Philadelphia and Orlando, averaging 10.9 points, 4.8 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.12 steals in 24.8 minutes per game. He has also played in eight career playoff games (five starts), averaging 8.1 points, 3.9 assists and 1.8 rebounds in 21.3 minutes per game.

Fultz was acquired by Orlando from Philadelphia in exchange for Jonathon Simmons, a 2020 protected first-round draft pick and a 2019 second-round draft pick on Feb. 7, 2019. He has played in 98 games (71 starts) with the Magic, averaging 11.9 points, 5.2 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.20 steals in 26.2 minutes per game.

Training camp for the Orlando Magic begins on Tuesday, Sep. 27, at the AdventHealth Training Center.
