The Magic will also receive a sum of cash in the deal. Since entering the league as the 28th selection in the 2014 draft, Wilcox has been quiet, appearing in only 44 games and averaging only 3.0 points per game. The third-year guard will likely land a reserve role with Orlando, playing behind Evan Fournier and potentially splitting minutes with newly-acquired Jodie Meeks. The Magic will hope that Wilcox, a career 38-percent three-point shooter, can provide range in the backcourt, as they shot only 35-percent from three as a team in 2015-16.
Wilcox suffered the injury in the first quarter of Saturday's summer league game, following which he was seen with a soft cast around the hand in the locker room after the game. He's expected to undergo surgery on Friday and will then have roughly a four-to-six week timetable for a recovery, making it seem as though he could still be back for the start of training camp in September. Wilcox isn't expected to be a part of the Clippers' regular rotation to begin the year, so it's unlikely he posts fantasy worthy numbers.

C.J. Wilcox tallied 19 points (8-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt), three rebounds, an assist and a block over 29 minutes in Wednesday's 114-105 season-ending loss to the Suns.
The second-year pro reached a new high-water mark in minutes, and utilized them to post a career-high scoring total. Wilcox's opportunities throughout the season have been significantly limited while playing behind J.J. Redick and Jamal Crawford, but he received double-digit minutes in three of the last five games. However, it would be highly unlikely for him to receive a spot on the postseason rotation, considering that the more experienced and accomplished Austin Rivers is able to slide over to shooting guard behind Crawford whenever necessary.
C.J. Wilcox played a season-high 25 minutes in Wednesday's 91-81 win over the Lakers, contributing six points (2-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt), three steals, two assists, and a rebound.
The Los Angeles Clippers were resting Jamal Crawford, Wesley Johnson, and Austin Rivers for the second half of the back-to-back set and backcourt starters Chris Paul and J.J. Redick each played less than 25 minutes, leaving more court time available off the bench for Wilcox, who has struggled to see the floor in his first two seasons. While he won't be guaranteed to see playing time at Wednesday's level in the Clippers' final four regular-season games, Wilcox should at least get off the bench in all of them, as the team is locked into the fourth seed in the Western Conference playoffs and has little to gain by overexerting its starters before the postseason kicks off.
