|Moritz Wagner: Posts double-double in return|
Wagner (rib) provided 17 points (6-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists and one steal over 27 minutes during Saturday's 124-96 loss to the Grizzlies.
The Scoop: Wagner missed each of Orlando's previous nine games due to a left rib contusion, but he didn't show much rust in his return to the court Saturday. The big man registered his highest scoring total since Jan. 23 and grabbed a team-high 11 boards to notch his first double-double of the season. Wagner surprisingly saw 27 minutes in the loss, which marked his most playing time since mid-January. Expect his playing time to trend down in the Magic's next game Tuesday against the Suns if starting power forward Wendell Carter (illness) is able to put an end to his two-game absence.
