Anthony scored 13 points (5-7 FG, 3-3 3Pt) while adding seven rebounds, three assists and a block across 28 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Timberwolves.
Anthony was deadly from beyond the arc, including drilling the game-winning three at the buzzer, allowing the Magic to steal what seemed to be an unlikely road win given their fourth-quarter deficit. The rookie has taken over a starting role following Markelle Fultz's season-ending knee injury; he's started seven straight games, averaging 12.1 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.0 steals in that span.
Anthony scored 16 points (6-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding eight assists, three rebounds, three steals and a block in 29 minutes during Saturday's 122-115 loss to the Nets.
The assists and steals were new personal bests for Anthony while the points tied the rookie's career high. Since being moved into the starting lineup five games ago, the 15th overall pick in the 2020 draft is averaging a respectable 13.2 points, 3.6 assists, 3.2 boards, 1.2 steals and 1.0 threes a game.
Anthony posted 15 points (7-18 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), six rebounds and three assists across 27 minutes in Friday's loss to the Celtics.
Anthony has scored in double digits in three of his four games as a starter, but he has been far from impressive -- he is shooting just 35.8 percent from the field and 16.6 percent from three-point range while also posting a 10:13 assist-to-turnover ratio in that four-game stretch. Anthony is likely to remain as the Magic's starting point guard, but he depends on heavy volume to make an impact as a scorer and is not bringing too much to the table aside from that.
Anthony (quadriceps) scored 12 points (4-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and added three rebounds, one assist and one steal in Monday's 121-99 loss to the Bucks.
Anthony injured his quad during Friday's loss but it hasn't stopped him from starting his third consecutive game in the absence of Markelle Fultz (knee) for the season. So far, the rookie out of North Carolina has struggled to find his touch, shooting less 40 percent from the field in nine of 11 games and hasn't made more than one three-pointer in any game.
Anthony (quadriceps) is starting Saturday's game against the Mavericks.
The 20-year-old was considered probable after picking up the quad injury during Friday's loss to Houston, and he'll be back on the court Saturday. Anthony had 15 points (6-14 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three assists, two rebounds and two steals in 28 minutes Friday and will continue to start with Markelle Fultz (knee) lost for the season.
Anthony is probable for Saturday's game against Dallas with a right quad contusion.
Anthony probably picked up the injury during his first start Friday against Houston when he posted 15 points in 28 minutes. However, the rookie is still likely to play during Saturday's matchup against Dallas.
Anthony posted 15 points (6-14 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three assists, two rebounds and two steals in 28 minutes during Friday's 132-90 loss to Houston.
As advertized, Anthony played fewer than 30 minutes in his first start of the season. He came just one point shy of tying his season high in scoring despite being unable to convert anything from three-point range. The 20-year-old should continue to see plenty of playing time now that Markelle Fultz is done for the season with a torn ACL.
Anthony will start Friday's game against the Rockets but won't play "Markelle Fultz-level minutes," Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.
Anthony was apparently struggling with the 32 minutes he received when he took over for Fultz on Wednesday. So he'll start, but he might not see 30-plus minutes. He still makes for an intriguing DFS option, but the risk is higher than previously assumed.
Anthony is expected to step in as the Magic's starting point guard Friday in Houston after Markelle Fultz (knee) was diagnosed with a season-ending ACL tear following Wednesday's win over the Cavaliers, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.
After Fultz exited early with the non-contact injury, Anthony stepped in as the team's primary point guard the rest of the night, playing a career-high 32 minutes and posting eight points (4-12 FG, 0-4 3Pt), four rebounds, three assists and one block. The rookie has struggled to find his shooting touch this season with a 30.3 percent mark from the field, but he's passed (3.4 assists per game) and rebounded (4.9 per game) well in his 21.4 minutes per contest. Look for his playing time to consistently rise above 30 minutes per game with Fultz out of the mix, making Anthony worthy of a look in most 10-team leagues or deeper. Anthony will likely remain a liability in the field-goal percentage category, but he could produce enough counting stats to make for a useful roster piece.
Anthony produced 16 points (5-18 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes during Thursday's 116-92 loss to Philadelphia.
With Evan Fournier (back) forced to leave the game after only three minutes, Anthony found himself thrust into the fire. He came through for anyone that had him active and could be in for an increased role should Fournier or Terrence Ross (calf) miss any further time. Anthony will certainly do your field goal percentage no favors but he is not afraid to let fly and does have some upside in assists.
Anthony had 12 points (3-9 FG, 0-2 3PT, 6-6 FT), seven rebounds and three assists in Sunday's win over the Wizards.
Anthony scored in double figures for the first time in his career and got to the line six times after not shooting a free throw in his last two games. The North Carolina product has looked promising as a scorer and distributor (14 assists in 55 total minutes) thus far, but he's only averaging 18.3 minutes per game off the bench.
Anthony scored 13 points (4-7 FG, 3-4 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go along with one rebound, two assists and two steals across 20 minutes in Thursday's preseason loss to the Hornets.
Anthony has showed the ability to pile up points in spurts across his last two preseason games. He's shot especially well from from deep, making five of his eight attempts from three-point range. Though Markelle Fultz is locked into starter's minutes at point guard, Anthony should continue to provide scoring punch off the bench during the regular season.
