      Magic's Victor Oladipo: Will come off bench Friday

      Oladipo will once again come off the bench for Friday night's game against the Bucks, John Denton of reports. Oladipo has been struggling as of late, which resulted in head coach Scott Skiles moving him to bench for Wednesday's game against the Knicks. Oladipo scored 24 points, with four rebounds, and two assists in 26 minutes on Wednesday in his new bench role, his best performance in nearly two weeks. Evan Fourier will continue to start in Oladipo's place again on Friday, even though he struggled, only making 1-of-9 shots in his new role on Wednesday.

      Magic's Victor Oladipo: Scores 24 points off bench Wednesday

      Oladipo recorded 24 points (5-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 13-15 FT), four rebounds, and two assists in 26 minutes during the Magic's 100-91 win versus the Knicks on Wednesday. Oladipo moved to the bench on Wednesday, though coach Scott Skiles insisted that this was no demotion. Oladipo responded by delivering his best showing since before he suffered a concussion two weeks ago against the Lakers. Meanwhile, Evan Fournier struggled from the field, making only one of his nine attempts while scoring only three points. The Magic's rotation will be something to keep an eye on in the coming weeks, but it's at least promising that Oladipo was able to offer so much despite seeing only 26 minutes.

      Magic's Victor Oladipo: Coming off bench Wednesday

      Oladipo will come off the bench Wednesday, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports. In what's a very surprising lineup change, coach Scott Skiles will move the struggling Oladipo to the bench, enabling Evan Fournier to shift down to shooting guard, while Channing Frye enters the lineup at power forward. The Magic have last three of their last four, and Oladipo is averaging just 12.8 points on 37.0 shooting on the season after averaging 17.9 points on nearly 44 percent shooting in 2014-15. The backcourt tandem of Oladipo and Elfrid Payton have failed to mesh this season, but Oladipo's shift to the bench may only be experimental, as the Indiana product remains arguably the team's best overall player.

      Magic's Victor Oladipo: Starting job could be in jeopardy

      For the third consecutive game, Oladipo saw less than 30 minutes of action in Monday's loss to the Cavaliers. He finished with 10 points (5-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists, and one steal over 26 minutes. After the Magic took a loss for the third time in four games, coach Scott Skiles expressed dissatisfaction with his starting unit, saying that, "It's time to change the lineup," according to Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel. With that quote in mind, it can be expected that Skiles -- one of the league's most notoriously fickle coaches -- will make at least one lineup alteration ahead of Wednesday's game against the Knicks, with Oladipo perhaps one of the players most susceptible to losing his starting job. Oladipo is shooting just 37 percent from the field this season, and that poor mark is magnified when he plays alongside starting point guard Elfrid Payton, who's proven to be an even worse shooter over his young NBA career. Regardless of which player or players Skiles decides to remove from the lineup, it's probably overly optimistic to expect Oladipo to start seeing 35-plus minutes again with much regularity.

      Magic's Victor Oladipo: Returns from concussion, but held out of second half

      Oladipo (concussion) played only 20 minutes in his return to the lineup Wednesday against the Timberwolves, finishing with one point (0-6 FG, 1-4 FT), three rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block. In his return from a two-game absence, Oladipo saw about 15 minutes less than he's averaged for the season, but his low playing time wasn't a result of any concussion-like symptoms he experienced. Instead, after Oladipo failed to find any rhythm from the field while the Magic found themselves in a 14-point hole at halftime, coach Scott Skiles elected to make some wholesale changes to his lineup, as both Oladipo and center Nikola Vucevic didn't leave the bench in the second half. Both players have strong track records of production and should be given the benefit of the doubt for their poor performances Wednesday, so it's probably safe to expect Oladipo to see more than 30 minutes when the Magic take the court again Saturday versus the Kings.

      Magic's Victor Oladipo: Will play Wednesday

      Oladipo (concussion) has been activated for Wednesday's matchup with Minnesota, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports. Oladipo has missed the last two games after suffering a concussion but has now passed the league's concussion protocol. The guard will jump right back into the starting lineup against the Timberwolves, meaning Channing Frye will likely return to the bench after replacing Oladipo the past two games.

      Magic's Victor Oladipo: Expected back Wednesday night

      Oladipo (concussion) is expected to return Wednesday night against the Timberwolves, John Denton of reports. Coach Scott Skiles said it "looks like" Oladipo will return Wednesday, though the guard is yet to gain official clearance from team doctors. Oladipo has been in the league's concussion protocol since taking a hit to the head in last Wednesday's game against the Lakers. The Magic have split their two games without Oladipo, knocking off the Jazz on Friday before falling to the Wizards in D.C. on Saturday.

      Magic's Victor Oladipo: Could return Wednesday

      Oladipo (concussion) participated in a non-contact practice Tuesday, and he could return Wednesday against the Timberwolves, Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel reports. Oladipo remains in the NBA's concussion protocol, but it looks as though he has a good chance to be cleared prior to Wednesday night's contest. The shooting guard has missed the last two games, and coach Scott Skiles has gone with a lineup of Elfrid Payton, Evan Fournier, Tobias Harris, Channing Frye and Nik Vucevic in his absence.

      Magic's Victor Oladipo: Going through NBA's concussion protocol

      Oladipo confirmed Monday that he's going through the NBA's concussion protocol, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports. Though he didn't practice with the team Monday, Oladipo was able to get in some conditioning work on a stationary bike. That said, Oladipo still must pass through several tests before he's cleared to play, so as of now, he looks doubtful for the team's next game Wednesday against the Timberwolves. The Magic should provide another update on Oladipo's status as that date nears.

      Magic's Victor Oladipo: Will not play Saturday due to concussion

      Oladipo (concussion) will not play in Saturday's game against the Wizards, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports. This will be Oladipo's second missed game after leaving Wednesday's game early, as he still hasn't passed the concussion protocol. It's an unfortunately timed injury with three games in four days, but Oladipo will luckily now have four days to get back to playing shape, with the Magic's next game coming Wednesday against the Timberwolves.
