Luke Ridnour G ORL 8 Days

Ridnour has been all but faded out of the rotation, playing once over the past seven games.

Ridnour is limited to garbage time, playing a total of 32 minutes over the past 11 games, interspersed with seven DNP-CDs. The return of Victor Oladipo accelerated the decline in minutes and games played.

Ridnour (personal) will be available for Monday's game against the Pistons, The Orlando Sentinel reports.

Ridnour missed the Magic's last game while attending to a personal matter, but he will be available for his usual role off the bench Monday night.

Ridnour (personal) is not with the team Saturday, the Orlando Sentinel's Josh Robbins reports.

He is attending to a personal matter and will not play Saturday. Consider him day-to-day, and look for Victor Oladipo to be the second option at point guard.

Ridnour is set to lose playing time with the announcement that Victor Oladipo (face) was cleared to play and remains questionable for tonight's tilt against the Bucks.

Ridnour played season-highs of 29 and 25 minutes over the past two contests, forcing rookie Elfrid Payton to the bench in both second halves. A non-factor in most fantasy circles, the Oladipo news creates uncertainty for Ridnour's role moving forward.

Ridnour is averaging 2.2 assists per game as Elfrid Payton's primary backup.

Ridnour usually tags into the game when Payton catches a breather. He's someone most fantasy leagues can disregard for his limited role and inadequate production across the board.

Ridnour returned from his quad injury for the season opener Tuesday, playing 17 minutes off the bench for the Magic against the Pelicans.

Those minutes weren't particularly effective, as he went 0-for-3 from the floor. Ridnour also added just two rebounds, and scored his only two points from the foul line. However, it does look as if he'll begin to play on a regular basis given his minutes Tuesday.

Ridnour (quad) will be ready to play in Orlando's season opener on Tuesday, John Denton of the Magic's official site reports.

Ridnour originally injured his right quad last week in a preseason game against the Mavericks but he will be ready to play on Tuesday. The 33-year-old guard has saw his playing time and scoring output decline last season and will probably be in a backup role to begin the season.

Ridnour suffered a right quadriceps contusion in Friday's preseason game against Dallas, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

The timing certainly isn't ideal for Ridnour, with the Magic's regular season opener just days away, but it doesn't sound like the 33-year-old is in danger of missing much, if any, additional action. If he were to sit next Tuesday against the Pelicans, it would likely mean a spike in playing time for Evan Fournier.

Ridnour will start at point guard during the Magic's first preseason game, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

Ridnour gets the nod over rookie Elfrid Payton because coach Jacque Vaughn wanted a veteran presence in the lineup. Coach Vaughn plans to use a different starting lineup against the Indiana Pacers on Friday, so Ridnour's presence is far from stable.

The Magic officially signed Luke Ridnour on Friday.

"We're extremely excited to welcome Luke [Ridnour] and his family to Orlando," said Magic GM Rob Hennigan. "Luke is a proven player in this league who is well-respected as a teammate and competitor. The depth and veteran experience he will provide to our backcourt will help our team continue to grow." Ridnour will likely backup Elfrid Payton in Orlando, and his minutes will be in the low 20s, which takes him out of the conversation in standard leagues.
