Orlando Magic guard Markelle Fultz suffered a torn ACL Wednesday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers and will be done for the year.

Fantasy Impact

This is a huge blow to both the Magic and Fultz as he was starting to show flashes of why he was the first overall pick a couple of years ago. Fultz averaged 12.9 PPG/3.1 RPG/5.4 APG/1.3 StPG on 27 minutes across eight games this season. With Fultz out for the year, Cole Anthony is about to have a much larger role this season, along with Michael Carter-Williams.
