Paolo Banchero leads the Magic with an average of 18.9 points per game. His scoring prowess will be crucial in overcoming the Bulls' defense.
Markelle Fultz is ruled out for the Magic, adding to their challenges in this matchup.
The Magic are coming off a convincing win against the Milwaukee Bucks but faced a setback against the Atlanta Hawks. Their ability to regroup quickly will be tested against the Bulls.
The Chicago Bulls, with a 4-7 record, will be without key player DeMar DeRozan. Despite recent struggles, they aim to capitalize on the Magic's back-to-back game and secure a home victory.
Player Spotlight: Zach LaVine
Zach LaVine remains a scoring force for the Bulls, averaging 21.9 points per game. His performance becomes even more critical in the absence of DeRozan.
