Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:

This is quite concerning considering Okeke’s history. Hopefully, he recovers smoothly. Okeke was an intriguing prospect before getting hurt – a hustle player who could make some plays with the ball.

Okeke was in Orlando’s rotation at power forward – a position where the Magic are shorthanded with Jonathan Isaac and Al-Farouq Aminu already sidelined. Gary Clark could now see a bigger role behind starter Aaron Gordon.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all.
