Magic big man Dewayne Dedmon was in a walking boot and did not play against the Boston Celtics due to a bruised bone. He will not play in the final Magic game of the 2014 Summer League on Friday morning.
Before injuring his foot, Dedmon was averaging 9.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and two blocks per game in three Summer League games.
The Magic signed center Dewayne Dedmon to a three-year contract towards the end of the season. The Magic will have the option of waiving him by opening night. Dedmon sits even at 7-foot brings size and depth to the center position. The only other 7-footer on the Magic roster is Nikola Vucevic so it makes sense to keep Dedmon around.
