The Orlando Magic are off to a 2-0 start in the preseason following a 96-93 win over the Indiana Pacers on Friday.  Coming off a dismal 23-59 record in 2013-2014, the Magic are looking to improve in nearly every phase of the game. They are currently without guard Victor Oladipo, who has a sprained MCL in his right knee. Although improving, there is no timetable for his return.

I reported on October 7 that Oladipo would miss the preseason opener due to a sprained MCL that he sustained during a scrimmage on October 3. The injury occurred when Oladipo landed awkwardly following a play at the rim.

John Denton, who covers the Magic for, tweeted the following update on Oladipo.
Oladipo, the Magic's first round draft pick last season out of Indiana, averaged 13.8 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game as a rookie. He shot 41.9 percent from the floor, 32.7 percent from three-point range and 78 percent from the free throw line.
