Carter-Williams (ankle) doesn't have a timetable to return and could be out for the remainder of the season, Roy Parry of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Carter-Williams has been out with a sprained left ankle since April 16, and the Magic have provided few updates about his recovery. With Orlando sitting near the bottom of the standings, there's little upside to bringing Carter-Williams back before he's 100 percent ready, so fantasy managers should act under the assumption that he won't be playing another game. In his absence, Cole Anthony, Chasson Randle and R.J. Hampton should continue playing extra minutes. If Carter-Williams has played his last game this season, he'll end his second full year in Orlando with averages of 8.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 4.2 assists in 25.8 minutes in what was his best season since 2015-16.

Carter-Williams scored 15 points (6-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT) while adding eight rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal over 27 minutes of Wednesday's victory against the Bulls.
Carter-Williams was one of six Magic players to score in double figures, and his 15 points mark his highest output since a 17-point performance back on March 11. This was just the second double-digit outing for Carter-Williams in his last seven games, and with the Magic having spent the 15th pick on Cole Anthony in the draft, the rookie may be the better fantasy option as the season presses on.
Carter-Williams (illness) totaled 13 points (4-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-6 FT), five assists, four rebounds, four steals and one block in 21 minutes during Wednesday's 131-116 loss to the Wizards.
Carter-Williams made his return to the lineup after missing the previous three games. He slotted straight back into the starting lineup and ended with what was a fantastic all-around fantasy line. Despite the production, the biggest takeaway here was the fact Cole Anthony (ribs) returned and played 26 minutes in what was his first outing since Feb. 9. R.J. Hampton also looked good off the bench, tallying 14 points in 28 minutes. While Carter-Williams may stick in the starting five in the short term, Anthony is probably the better pickup for fantasy purposes, given the rebuilding Magic have more invested in the latter as the 15th overall pick in last November's draft.

Carter-Williams posted eight points (3-10 FG, 2-4 FT), nine assists, seven rebounds, three steals and two blocks in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 103-96 victory over the Clippers.
The Clippers were without both Paul George (foot) and Marcus Morris (calf), but the Magic's victory was still surprising. Carter-Williams struggled from the field, but he still flirted with a triple-double and put up great defensive numbers while committing zero turnovers, so the performance should be viewed as a positive. This month, he's averaged 10.0 points, 5.3 assists and 4.7 rebounds in 27.2 minutes. With management having dealt the team's best three options at the deadline, Carter-Williams has some upside to produce better numbers.
