On Wednesday, it was announced that Orlando Magic guard Michael Carter-Williams does not have a timetable for his return to action following a left hip injury. Carter-Williams underwent an MRI that showed that there was no structural damage, silencing some of the fears of the seven-year veteran.

“I was worried because I've had a history with [my left] hip, but I'm glad it wasn't as serious as I thought,” Carter-Williams said, per John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com. “I had surgery on this hip back when I was playing with Milwaukee.”

Hip injuries can be notoriously difficult to come back from, as they control much of an athlete's explosiveness while on the court. While this latest ailment does not appear up to the level that Carter-Williams has sustained before, both the organization and the player seem to be moving forward with caution.

Carter-Williams has established himself as a bench cog for the Magic during the 2019-20 season, having averaged 4.7 points and 3.1 rebounds across 14.9 minutes per contest. He has scuffled mightily from the floor, on pace shoot a career-worst 29.8 percent overall.

Since bursting on the scene as the 2013-14 NBA Rookie of the Year as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers, Carter-Williams has seen his NBA fortunes ebb. Since the start of the 2015-16 year, he has played for five different organizations; since 2017-18, he has started just four games.

With Carter-Williams sidelined for at least the immediate future, the point guard duties in Orlando will likely be split between Markelle Fultz and D.J. Augustin on a full-time basis.
