Magic point guard Elfrid Payton sat out of Friday’s practice as he continues to recover from a strained hip flexor.
Payton suffered the injury on Wednesday and has yet to resume basketball activities. The team will continue to monitor Payton, but they don’t seem too concerned about the injury and the point guard should be ready to go to start the regular season. However, there has been no word yet on if Payton will have to miss any of the Magic’s preseason games.
Aaron Gordon (ankle) did some non-contact work in the Magic's practice today. Elfrid Payton (hip flexor) did not practice.
