Magic point guard Cole Anthony will return to action on Wednesday after missing nearly two months, the team announced Wednesday (Twitter link). Anthony had been sidelined since Feb. 9 due to a fractured rib.
Anthony, the son of former NBA player and current broadcaster Greg Anthony, was drafted out of University of North Carolina by the Magic with the 15th overall pick last fall.
On the season, the rookie has appeared in 25 games, averaging 11.0 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.8 assists per contest. He hit a game-winning buzzer beater to beat the Timberwolves on Jan. 20.
The Magic are currently 17-33 and hold the 14th seed in the Eastern Conference.
