Moritz Wagner To Begin Serving Suspension On Wednesday

Magic forward Moritz Wagner will begin serving his two-game suspension for his role in last week’s on-court altercation with the Pistons on Wednesday night when Orlando hosts the Thunder, the NBA announced today in a press release (Twitter link).

The original plan was for Wagner to start serving his suspension on December 30, when the Magic faced Washington. However, he was unable to play in that game due to an illness, and league rules state that suspensions don’t begin until the player is physically able to play.

As a result, Wagner will miss both Wednesday’s game vs. Oklahoma City and Thursday’s contest vs. Memphis.

Eight other Magic players received one-game suspensions for leaving the bench during that incident in Detroit. Five of those players served their one-game bans last Friday, but three others will join Wagner on the inactive list tonight vs. OKC — his brother Franz Wagner and two-way players Admiral Schofield and Kevon Harris are serving their suspensions on Wednesday.
