All the game information for Friday’s contest between the San Antonio Spurs and Orlando Magic.
The San Antonio Spurs will enter its fifth game of the 2017-18 season on Friday night. It will take place in Orlando, FL, as the Spurs face the Magic and look to become 5-0. Their perfect record remained intact on Wednesday, with a win over the Miami Heat.
LaMarcus Aldridge has been the Spurs’ star through four games. He has averaged 26 points and 8.8 rebounds, taking on the primary offensive role and in his most aggressive manner since joining the organization in 2015.
Kawhi Leonard’s quad injury forced Aldridge to step into the primary offensive role. This was the case through the preseason, too.
As for Friday’s game, Leonard will not play, again, due to the quad ailment. The same will go for Tony Parker, who’s making progress on his season debut.
Joffrey Lauvergne was added to the injured list in Monday’s game against the Toronto Raptors. He suffered a sprained ankle and missed the Heat game. The Spurs already ruled him out against the Magic, with no announced timetable for his return.
As for Orlando, it will throw former Spur Jonathon Simmons against his old team. It won’t be a first-time meet-up, as these teams played each other in the preseason. Through four games, Simmons averaged 13.3 points in 23.8 minutes.
