  • Magic's Anthony Black: Starting role yields little

    Black chipped in five points (2-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, one assist and one steal across 23 minutes during Tuesday's 126-107 victory over Toronto.

    With Markelle Fultz (knee) sidelined, Black continues to start for the Magic but has failed to make the most of his situation. The rookie has been in the opening unit for six consecutive games and has totaled just 25 points and eight assists. Despite the starting tag, Black is not worth rostering outside of deep formats.

  • Magic's Anthony Black: Struggles in start

    Black closed with seven points (3-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds and two assists over 27 minutes during Wednesday's 96-94 win over the Bulls.

    Despite starting for the fifth time in the past six games, Black failed to produce much of note. He has managed to score double-digit points only once all season, adding very little in terms of peripheral stats. Markelle Fultz (knee) has already been ruled out Friday, meaning Black will likely remain in the opening unit. With that said, to this point he has not flashed enough to be considered anything more than a deeper-league stream target.

  • Magic's Anthony Black: Gets starting nod

    Black is in the starting lineup for Saturday's game versus Milwaukee.

    With Markelle Fultz (knee) being a late scratch, Black will replace him in the starting lineup. The rookie guard has averaged 9.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 31.5 minutes across his previous two starts this season.

  • Magic's Anthony Black: Back to bench

    Black will move back to the bench for Thursday's game against Atlanta.

    Markelle Fultz is back with the starters after sitting the past three games. Black wasn't in the rotation to begin the season, so it will be interesting to see if he gets any reps with the second unit.

  • Magic's Anthony Black: Scores 11 points in first start

    Black tallied 11 points (4-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal across 30 minutes in Saturday's 120-101 win over the Lakers.

    Making his first career start while Markelle Fultz (knee) was sidelined, Black played turnover-free basketball over his 30 minutes of court time but took on a minuscule 8.2 percent usage rate, the lowest among all nine of the Magic's rotation players on the day. Though his fantasy value will be on the upswing if Fultz misses more time, Black's line from Saturday doesn't inspire much confidence that he'll offer major upside during his rookie season.

  • Magic's Anthony Black: Set to make first career start

    Black is in the starting lineup for Saturday's game versus the Lakers.

    Black will replace Markelle Fultz (knee) in the starting five Saturday. The rookie guard has had a limited role to start the season, averaging just 4.7 points, 1.0 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 8.3 minutes across his first three appearances. However, Black will get the chance to run the offense alongside Jalen Suggs in the backcourt Saturday.

  • Magic's Anthony Black: Plays 16 minutes in win

    Black totaled nine points (4-4 FG, 1-3 FT), three rebounds, one assist and two steals in 16 minutes during Thursday's 115-113 win over the Jazz.

    Gary Harris, who started the contest in place of Markelle Fultz (knee), suffered a groin injury in the first half and didn't return. Joe Ingles started the second half in place of Harris, but Cole Anthony and Black were the ones who stepped their production up. If Harris and Fultz remain sidelined, it's possible Black will be able to carve out a 20-minute bench role moving forward.

  • Magic's Anthony Black: Plays five minutes Wednesday

    Black logged five points (2-2 FG, 1-1 FT), one assist and two blocks over five minutes during Wednesday's 116-86 win over Houston.

    Black was the sixth overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft and put together some encouraging performances in Summer League play, but he saw limited minutes during Wednesday's regular-season opener. Despite Black's limited workload, Jalen Suggs and Gary Harris both played under 22 minutes, so it's possible the rookie can carve out a larger role as he adjusts to the NBA level.

  • Magic's Anthony Black: Nabs 14 boards

    Black registered eight points (3-10 FG, 0-2 3PT, 2-2 FT), 14 rebounds, four assists, one steal and two blocks in 34 minutes of Wednesday's 82-80 Summer League loss to the Knicks.

    Though Black struggled from the field, he came through in crunch time, tipping in Jett Howard's missed three-pointer at the buzzer to push the contest into overtime. He was a dominant force on the glass, finishing with a team-high 14 rebounds while also swatting a pair of shots. Though Black has struggled with efficiency, his ability to contribute as a rebounder and defender will help him contribute for the Magic early on.

  • Magic's Anthony Black: Struggles with efficiency

    Black tallied eight points (3-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-6 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and two steals in 27 minutes during Monday's 108-85 Summer League loss to Indiana.

    Black didn't turn the ball over Monday, but his efficiency is one of his biggest concerns heading into his rookie season. The No. 6 pick in the 2023 NBA Draft has flashed his defensive potential, recording at least two steals in both of his Summer League outings.
