Elfrid Payton (hip flexor strain) did not practice on Wednesday but did say he is feeling better according to Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel.
Payton apparently injured it last week and then aggravated it, which indicates that there is a bit of a long-term component to it but we’re not going to sound the alarm just yet. His standard league value is already questionable due to multiple deficiencies in his stat set, so any injury issues or ground he cedes to D.J. Augustin could push him over the edge. It’s early though, so this could easily blow over by the time the season starts.
