Iwundu won't play during Friday's summer league finale, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Iwundu isn't reportedly dealing with an injury, so we'll have to assume he's simply getting the final summer league game off. He averaged 9.0 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.5 steals in four games.
Iwundu posted 11 points (5-13 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds and an assist across 26 minutes in Thursday's 75-70 Summer League playoff loss to the Jazz.
The 22-year-old drew the start in lieu of Jonathan Isaac on Thursday and had a decent outing. Iwundu played in 62 games for the MAgic last season and emerged as a valuable replacement when Aaron Gordon's injuries kept him off the court. In his sophomore season, Iwundu is expected to fill the same role he played as a rookie. He has excellent instincts as a defender but isn't much of a scoring threat. He will be a key piece of Orlando's third unit.
The second-year wing propped up his line with his perfect showing from the charity stripe, as his shooting from the field left plenty to be desired. Iwundu averaged 16.5 minutes across 62 games during his rookie campaign, but he averaged a modest 3.7 points and 2.2 rebounds. Iwundu will look to gain some valuable seasoning in Las Vegas in the hopes of expanded opportunity during the coming season.
Iwundu mustered 3.7 points, 2.2 rebounds and 0.9 assists over 62 games played with Orlando during the 2017-18 season.
Iwundu wasn't much of a factor during his rookie season as his final stat-line would indicate. Of the 62 games, the former Kansas State standout only scored in double figures three times, with his high coming of 12 points coming on Jan. 6 against Cleveland. Iwundu is signed through next season and will make about $1.4 million with the Magic.
Iwundu (illness) will start in Sunday's game against Atlanta, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports.
Iwundu missed the Magic's last two games due to illness but it appears he's over the issue now that he's jumping back into the starting lineup. Rodney Purvis had started in Iwundu's absence but will now return to his role off the bench.
