ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Magic guard Victor Oladipo will miss Orlando’s season opener and is out indefinitely with his second injury this month.

The team announced Friday that Oladipo suffered a facial fracture in practice Thursday and will undergo surgery Saturday. The injury occurred when Oladipo took an inadvertent elbow during a practice drill.

Oladipo has not played during the preseason because of a sprained medial collateral ligament in his right knee.

Oladipo was taken second overall by the Magic in 2013 and made the NBA All-Rookie first team last season.

The injury is the latest big blow to Orlando’s projected starting lineup. Offseason free agent pickup Channing Frye has also missed the entire preseason and remains out indefinitely with a sprained MCL in his left knee.
