Briscoe (knee) has been waived by the Magic. Briscoe has been out since early March due to right knee surgery, and the Magic will opt to let him go to make a roster spot for Michael Carter-Williams, who has signed for the rest of the season.
Briscoe (knee) will undergo an arthroscopic procedure on his right knee to repair a torn meniscus, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports. Briscoe consulted with doctors over the weekend, and the decision was made to undergo the procedure, which will address damaged cartilage in his knee. The team hasn't released a timetable, but the rookie figures to miss several weeks, likely putting him out for the remainder of the regular season. After beginning the year in a minimal role, Briscoe had worked his way up to the backup point guard spot and was averaging 22.6 minutes over his last 10 games before the injury.
Briscoe is expected to meet with team doctors to determine whether he needs surgery to repair his torn meniscus, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports. Briscoe is still holding out hope that his injury may be able to heal with the help of physical therapy, as it would offer a much quicker return to action. His status for the near future will become more clear after determining the best course of action.
Briscoe was ruled out for Friday's game against the Mavericks due to a torn meniscus, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports. Briscoe was a late addition to the injury report Friday and an MRI revealed that the point guard has a small torn meniscus. He is still being evaluated, so a timetable is yet to be determined, but with Briscoe likely facing an extended absence, Jerian Grant is expected to step back in as the team's backup point guard.
Briscoe is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Mavericks due to a sore right knee. Briscoe has been a mainstay in the Magic's rotation since the start of February, but he now appears to have emerged from Tuesday's game against the 76ers with a knee injury. Given the point guard's late addition to the injury report Friday, he will likely end up being a game-time decision.
