Fournier and Aaron Gordon, both acquired by the Magic on the same night in 2014, have suffered through four years of struggles prior to breaking through this season. It is worth noting that Kawhi Leonard sat out on February 24 and Kyle Lowry was sidelined during the blowout loss on December 28. Turnovers have been problematic at times this season, although the Magic have done a good job overall of keeping turnovers to a minimum. The Los Angeles Lakers are one of the most storied franchises in the National Basketball Association, and right now they're looking more confused and unstable than a class act. They would like to end the season having avoided any type of injury, so they can enter the playoffs at full strength. Acquired in the off-season with a championship appearance as the No. 1 goal, Leonard is the most talented player in franchise history, MVP of the 2014 National Basketball Association finals and a two-time defensive player of the year.

Toronto seems to be dogged annually for not yet breaking through and winning a title, or even reaching the NBA Finals.
Smart sustained the injury in a game against the Orlando Magic on Sunday, and he did not play in Tuesday's regular-season finale at Washington. He actually gave it a couple of bites too something not many would be willing to do so give Kawhi credit for that. Iwundu is averaging 10.3 points and 3.3 rebounds in 19.3 minutes over three games against the Hornets this season but just 4.3 points and 1.7 rebounds in 17.7 minutes over 12 starts this year.
There are two very compelling reasons why Orlando has Toronto's attention. He was the Raptors' GM under president Masai Ujiri before being hired by the Magic in 2017.
