  • Speights didn't see the floor in Saturday's 110-117 loss to the Hawks. Speights was expected to see a sizable workload with Aaron Gordon (concussion) sitting out, but the Magic turned to Mario Hezonja (31 minutes) to start at power forward and gave guys like Wesley Iwundu (26 minutes) and Bismack Biyombo (10 minutes) the frontcourt workload off the bench. It's unclear if Speights didn't play because of an injury or if coach Frank Vogel was just giving his veteran the night off for rest. Either way, if Gordon misses more time, Speights' status should be monitored heading into Wednesday's game against the Clippers.

  • Magic's Marreese Speights: Makes two threes
    By RotoWire Staff

    Speights tallied 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt), three rebounds and one block across 16 minutes during Wednesday's matchup against Portland. Speights was more involved Wednesday since Jonathan Isaac (ankle) is still out. Speights is shooting a career-high 43.2 percent from behind the arc this season -- compared to 37.2 percent during the 2016-17 season -- after adding the shot into his arsenal only a few years ago. He'll likely continue to be involved in the second unit while Isaac is out.

  • Speights had 10 points (4-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt) and five rebounds in 18 minutes during Saturday's 114-93 win over the Cavaliers. After receiving zero and three minutes respectively in the first two games of the season, Speights was finally allowed to get his feet wet on Saturday. Then again, once Aaron Gordon (ankle) returns to the lineup, Speights could find himself buried on the bench.

  • Speights will sit out Tuesday's preseason game against the Spurs for rest, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports. The Magic rested the majority of their regular contributors on Monday in the first game of the team's back-to-back set. However, Speights wasn't one of those players and will instead be rested Tuesday in order to keep him fresh for the start of the regular season. Speights should be back for Friday's preseason finale against the Cavaliers, but he'll be stuck as a fairly deep reserve at both power forward and center with the likes of Aaron Gordon, Jonathan Isaac, Nikola Vucevic and Bismack Biyombo all likely ahead of him on the depth chart.

  • Speights provided 15 points (5-10 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and one rebound in 18 minutes during Monday's 99-96 loss to the Mavericks. Speights matched his career high in threes made and attempted, and he didn't need many minutes to do so. On the other hand, he also managed to commit six turnovers and five fouls. Speights has averaged 15.3 minutes per game in his career, and that's unlikely to improve since he'll be fighting for time with Nikola Vucevic, Aaron Gordon, and Bismack Biyombo, among others.
