Magic guard Elfrid Payton thankful to avoid major knee injury


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2015) Magic point guard Elfrid Payton had a bit of an injury scare in Friday's game. Knicks forward Jason Smith landed on Payton's left leg awkwardly, forcing his leg to buckle a bit.

After benig examined postgame, Payton was relieved to have avoided a serious injury.

"I'm good — a little sore," Payton said. "The doctor came in and checked me out. No severe pain. No real pain. He said I'm really good. I think it just was a little shock with how it happened. But I'm good."

Payton finished with nine points and 11 assists in the losing effort.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/18/2015) Magic point guard Elfrid Payton scored 19 points on 9 of 17 shooting in Sunday's 127-99 loss to the Thunder. Payton also dished out eight assists and grabbed four rebounds in the contest.

It was Payton's fourth straight game with at least 10 points. In those four games, Payton is averaging 16.5 points and 7.8 assists. He and the Magic will look to bounce back Wednesday against the Pistons.

Payton hadn't scored in double digits in back-to-back games coming into the week, but he's strung together three such performances since last weekend, culminating in the big scoring effort Friday.

Payton's double-double was just his second of the season, and his nine rebounds matched a season high. His 16 points also matched his previous high, and he was even able to knock down his first three-point attempt since Nov. 26. The rookie will look to build off the great performance Saturday against the Hornets.

Payton earned his first pro start during Monday's preseason game against the Hornets, totaling 14 points, six rebounds and five assists, which gives him 17 assists in three preseason games.

"I'm hoping that Elfrid is as good as we want him to be. So I haven't ruled out any lineups for us going forward," coach Jacque Vaughn said.
