Wesley Iwundu and Mario Hezonja will start Thursday in place of Jonathon Simmons and Jonathan Isaac respectively.
Arron Afflalo started the last game for Simmons so it seems as if the Magic want to change things up. Iwundu, the Magic’s second round selection in 2017, is a long and lean swingman. Standing 6’7″ and boasting a 7’1″ wingspan he has a knack for getting steals but is a longshot to retain any real value as Simmons is not expected to miss much time. If you need defensive help and play in a daily lineup league he’s not the worst plug-‘n-play option tonight. Hezonja has been too inconsistent to trust since Aaron Gordon has returned but he also has some short-term value with Isaac being out.
