Orlando Magic guard Markelle Fultz will make his season debut Wednesday night against Atlanta after missing the first 21 games because of a broken toe.
It doesn’t come at a better time for the 5-16 Magic, who are on a five-game losing streak and plagued by a number of injuries.
Fultz, 24, broke his left big toe during a pre-season training session.
He tore the ACL in January 2021 before returning in February 2022. He averaged 10.8 points and 5.5 assists in 18 games (three appearances) in previous season.
Fultz contributed 10.9 points and 4.8 assists in 131 career games (86 appearances) against the Philadelphia 76ers and the Magic. He was the top pick in the 2017 NBA Draft by the Sixers.
