  • Timofey Mozgov: Heading to Europe

    Mozgov reached a verbal commitment Friday on a multi-year contract with Russian club Khimki Moscow, Nikos Varlas of Eurohoops.net reports.

    Mozgov spent the 2018-19 season with the Magic but didn't appear in a single contest while battling a knee injury. The severity of the issue was never disclosed, but even if Mozgov had been in better health, the 32-year-old center would have merited consideration for a rotation spot. A poor fit in the modern NBA, Mozgov looks destined to finish out his career overseas.

  • Magic's Timofey Mozgov: Waived by Orlando

    Mozgov (knee) was waived by the Magic on Saturday.

  • Magic's Timofey Mozgov: Still not ready to play

    Mozgov (knee) is listed as out on the Magic's injury report for Friday's game against the Bulls.

    The Magic didn't attach a timeline for Mozgov's return to action after he underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in early January, but he's unlikely to crack the rotation even if he's cleared to play at some point in the second half. Mozgov hasn't seen any action for Orlando since being acquired from the Hornets on July 7, with the Magic merely taking on his onerous contract in order to pick up a developmental point guard (Jerian Grant) as part of the deal.

  • Magic's Timofey Mozgov: Has arthroscopic procedure

    Mozgov (knee) had an arthroscopic procedure on his right knee Friday, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports.

    How quickly Mozgov, who hasn't played in a contest all season long yet, will return is based primarily on how well he recovers and responds to therapy on his right knee in the weeks to come. Since signing a four-year, $64 million contract with the Lakers in July of 2016, the Russian has been noted as a bust, as he is averaging only 5.8 points and 4.1 rebounds per outing dating back to the start of the 2016-17 campaign.

    Mozgov (knee) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Hornets.

    Mozgov's Magic debut will have to wait until 2019, if it comes at all. The center has been dealing with a sore right knee all season and is without a clear timetable to resuming playing. He's highly unlikely to be included in the Magic's rotation once healthy.
