|Moritz Wagner: Strong showing off bench|
Wagner notched 15 points (5-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds and five assists across 19 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 114-110 overtime loss to the Kings.
The Scoop: While his younger brother Franz was leading the Magic in scoring during the game, Moritz was putting together an impressive effort of his own from the second unit. The elder Wagner has looked good since returning from a rib injury in early March, averaging 13.1 points, 6.6 boards, 1.8 assists and 1.5 threes over the last 11 games.

|Moritz Wagner: Productive in spot start Thursday|
Wagner racked up 16 points (7-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, three assists and one steal in 29 minutes during Thursday's 134-120 loss to the Pistons.
The Scoop: Wagner shifted into the starting lineup, replacing Wendell Carter Jr. who was ruled out with an ankle injury. Despite fluctuating playing time, Wagner has actually put together his most productive stretch of the season recently. Over his past seven games, he is averaging 14.1 points, 7.1 rebounds and 1.3 triples on 51 percent shooting from the floor. His role is too uncertain to make him a must-add player, but he is absolutely worth considering in the short term, especially if Carter misses additional time.

|Moritz Wagner: Starting for injured Carter|
