Adreian Payne will be called up by the Magic ahead of Saturday’s game against the Hawks.
Perhaps it won’t just be Mario Hezonja and Bismack Biyombo taking all of Aaron Gordon’s minutes. Jonathan Simmons is already playing all the minutes he can handle so this move definitely makes sense. Payne recently came back from injury and has averaged 12.8 points, 7.7 rebounds, 0.7 steals, 1.0 blocks and 0.8 triples in six G-League games this year. He is not expected to have a fantasy impact and Aaron Gordon shouldn’t miss much time anyway.
