Orlando Magic's Fultz suffers broken toe, return uncertain
Orlando Magic guard Markelle Fultz suffered a broken left big toe during a preseason workout and the team is uncertain when he'll be able to return.
The Magic revealed the injury on Sunday and said he has been placed in a walking boot and surgery will not be required.
A timeline for a return will be determined with "how he responds to rehabilitation and treatment," the team announced.
The Magic open training camp on Tuesday and play their first regular-season game October 19 against the Detroit Pistons.
The first overall pick of the 2017 NBA Draft by the Philadelphia 76ers, Fultz's career has been marred by a series of injuries.
In his five professional seasons, Fultz has appeared in more than 20 games only once, playing in a total of 26 games the past two seasons due to a torn ACL.
In 18 games for Orlando in 2021-22, Fultz averaged 10.8 points on 47.4% shooting and 5.5 assists.
The oft-injured 24-year-old is entering the second season of a three-year, $50million contract extension that he signed in December 2020.
