    Michael Carter-Williams (left foot tendon strain) has been ruled out ahead of Wednesday's Game 5.

    MCW doesn't appear close to a return and his status tags have actually gone the wrong direction, from doubtful to straight out, as the series has gone on. The Magic have missed his defensive abilities on the wing and will use Wes Iwundu and Gary Clark to patch the holes.

    Michael Carter-Williams (left foot tendon strain) will not play on Monday.

    Carter-Williams had previously been listed as doubtful ahead of Orlando's first three playoff games, but is just straight out for Game 4. Steve Clifford revealed that MCW hasn't done much on-court aside from taking spot-up jumpers, so a return doesn't appear close.

    Michael Carter-Williams (left foot tendon strain) will not play in Saturday's Game 3.

    Carter-Williams was listed as doubtful and there hasn't been any sort of update from the Magic about his timeline. His absence will continue to shorten the rotation in the backcourt and on the wings, but won't have a major fantasy impact.

    The Magic have listed Michael Carter-Williams (left foot tendon strain) as doubtful for Saturday's Game 3.

    There hasn't been much in the way of optimism regarding MCW's potential return and it looks like he'll be out indefinitely. His availability would give the Magic another defensive option on the wing but we'll see more Gary Clark and Wes Iwundu in the meantime.

    Michael Carter-Williams (left foot) will sit out Thursday’s Game 2 against the Bucks.

    Carter-Williams also sat out in Game 1, but D.J. Augustin and Markelle Fultz have both played well enough to cover all of the needs at point guard.

    Michael Carter-Williams (left foot tendon strain) is doubtful to play in Game 2 against the Bucks on Thursday.

    It’s likely that MCW remains sidelined for a few more games as we haven’t heard a positive update about his foot yet. Look for James Ennis, Gary Clark and Wes Iwundu to continue logging heavy minutes.

    Michael Carter-Williams (left foot tendon strain) will remain sidelined for Game 1 against the Bucks on Tuesday.

    MCW was already considered doubtful so this is really not a big surprise. The Magic will be without Jonathan Isaac and Aaron Gordon as well, with James Ennis, Wes Iwundu and Gary Clark all expected to play major minutes.

    Michael Carter-Williams (left foot tendon strain) is doubtful for Game 1 against the Bucks on Tuesday.

    Carter-Williams was spotted in a walking boot as recently as this past Saturday. If he is declared out for Tuesday's game against the Bucks, James Ennis would likely benefit and solidify his minutes above 30. Wes Iwundu may also see a slight uptick in minutes as well.

    Michael Carter-Williams (left foot tendon strain) was sporting a walking boot at Saturday's practice.

    Carter-Williams has missed the last five games and Steve Clifford said he was, "a little bit further away" than Aaron Gordon (hamstring), who is expected to play in Game 1. At this point it'd be a shock if we saw MCW for that one, and he may have to miss multiple games against the Bucks. Wes Iwundu and Gary Clark will soak up some additional minutes at SF while Carter-Williams is on the mend.

    Michael Carter-Williams (left foot) is doubtful to play in Tuesday's game vs. the Nets.

    The Magic will already be without Terrence Ross, so if MCW doesn't play their backcourt will be severely lacking. Markelle Fultz and DJ Augustin have the most to gain from this for fantasy owners.

    Michael Carter-Williams (left foot tendon strain) will not suit up on Sunday when the Magic face the Celtics.

    MCW is looking at his third straight absence and is missing a great chance at minutes in the wake of Jonathan Isaac's injury. The former point guard has been revitalized on the wing in Orlando, and you can expect to see more Wes Iwundu and Gary Clark for as long as he's out.

    Michael Carter-Williams (left foot tendon strain) is listed as questionable against the Celtics on Sunday.

    MCW has missed two straight after being expected to have an expanded role with Jonathan Isaac's injury. The Magic have plenty of options on the wings with James Ennis, Wes Iwundu, Terrence Ross and Evan Fournier in case Carter-Williams has to miss more time.

    Michael Carter-Williams (left foot tendon strain) has been downgraded to out ahead of Friday’s matchup against the Sixers.

    MCW will miss his second straight game in the Orlando bubble on Friday. The Magic have gotten hit with the injury bug as they will be without Jonathan Isaac (ACL) for the foreseeable future while they will be missing both MCW and Aaron Gordon (hamstring) today. There will be more minutes available for several Magic players today but the main guys are the only ones who can be trusted – Nikola Vučević, Evan Fournier and Terrence Ross.

    Michael Carter-Williams (left foot tendon strain) is officially listed as questionable ahead of Friday's matchup with the Sixers.

    MCW is in jeopardy of missing his second straight game after injuring his foot in Tuesday's contest vs. the Pacers. Terrence Ross saw some extra minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Raptors but it doesn't appear like MCW's absence will significantly alter the fantasy values of other Magic players. Continue to monitor as we should get more information on Friday.
