–As Orlando Magic [prepare for new NBA season
The Orlando Magic will be without shooting guard Victor Oladipo for their pre-season clash with the Miami Heat today.
Oladipo has sprained a medial collateral ligament in his right knee, with his team currently unsure as to how much basketball he will miss ahead of the new season.
“It’s tough. But, again, it’s a part of basketball. It happens,” said Oladipo, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
“At the end of the day, I’ve just got to figure out how to stay close to my team and get better away from the court, whether it be watching film or watching the games or just improving myself mentally. It’s going to be huge.”
The Magic open their NBA season against the New Orleans Pelicans on October 28.
