Terrence Ross spent tireless sessions in the gym over the summer building a daily routine that could help him be more consistent for the Magic and it’s paying off as he has been steady, both in production and leadership thus far.
“It was tough sitting and watching almost all of last year,” Ross said, referring to the knee sprain and tibial fracture that knocked him out of action for 57 games. “So, to be out there and be able to help, it feels really good.” The athletic swingman is returning top-75 value in the last couple weeks after Jonathan Isaac went down with an ankle injury. Through 14 games, he has averaged 13.8 points, 2.9 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.0 steals while shooting 43.2 percent from the floor and 38.1 percent from 3-point range. The Magic are expected to go back to Isaac once he is ready to return but Ross could maintain season-long value in deeper leagues as long as his shooting remains consistent.
