APRIL 26: The Magic issued an update on Cannady today, announcing in a press release that he underwent a surgical procedure on Monday morning to clean out his ankle.
Although Cannady sustained an open ankle dislocation and a severe lateral sprain, the team said that further X-rays, a CT scan, and an MRI showed that his bones and cartilage remain intact. That’s good news for the rookie guard, who is in a plaster splint and is done for the season but is expected to make a full recovery, according to the club.
APRIL 25: Magic guard Devin Cannady has suffered an open fracture of his right ankle, an injury that will require surgery, the team announced on social media. Cannady sustained the injury during the first quarter of Orlando’s game against Indiana on Sunday night.
Cannady contested a drive and landed awkwardly on his ankle, shouting in agony as he fell near the baseline. No timetable has been issued for the Princeton product, who was stretchered off the floor shortly after sustaining the injury. It’s safe to say his season is over.
Cannady, 24, received G League Finals MVP honors this season with Lakeland. He appeared in seven games with the Magic, playing a total of 73 minutes across those contests. After first signing a 10-day deal with Orlando, he later inked a two-way pact with the club. He and Chasson Randle are the team’s two-way players.
The Magic are 18-41 and eight games behind the No. 10 seed Wizards with just under a month left in the season.
