He'll miss at least one game to begin the final week of the season, but the Magic have not indicated that Anthony will be shut down.

Magic's Cole Anthony: Exits early in first quarter

Anthony (toe) departed Sunday's game against the Knicks early in the first quarter and will not return, Khobi Price of the Orlando Sentinel reports. Anthony was questionable coming into the day with a sprained left toe, and while he was cleared to start Sunday's contest, he was visibly favoring his left foot before checking out of the game at the 9:22 mark in the first quarter. Shortly after heading back to the locker room, the Magic announced that Anthony will not return. He should be considered day-to-day heading into Orlando's three-game week to finish out the regular season.

Magic's Cole Anthony: Questionable for Tuesday's contest

Anthony (toe) is questionable for Tuesday's contest against the Cavaliers. Anthony left Sunday's matchup against the Knicks in the first quarter and didn't return. If he's sidelined Tuesday, Markelle Fultz may get extended run, but the Magic have been adamant about keeping a close eye on his minutes, so Devin Cannady and R.J. Hampton would likely see increased roles as well.

Magic's Cole Anthony: Questionable vs. Knicks

Anthony is questionable for Sunday's game against the Knicks due to a sprained left toe. Anthony sprained his toe during Friday's loss to the Raptors. It's possible some time off would help the second-year guard, as he's struggled since the start of March, shooting just 37.8 percent from the field. If he sits out, more minutes could be in store for Jeff Dowtin, Devin Cannady and R.J. Hampton.

Magic's Cole Anthony: Ninth double-double of season

Anthony tallied 17 points (5-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 5-8 FT), 11 assists and five rebounds during Wednesday's 118-102 loss to the Thunder. Anthony's team-high 11 assists tied a career best, as the guard also played well offensively to mark a ninth double-double this season.

Magic's Cole Anthony: Bounces back Tuesday

Anthony supplied 14 points (5-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds and five assists in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 94-90 win over the Warriors. While Anthony wasn't too efficient, Tuesday's performance was a solid bounceback from Sunday's 1-for-7 shooting game against the Thunder. The point guard has cooled off significantly since the New Year, but he's still a nice fantasy option.

Magic's Cole Anthony: Sniffs double-double

Anthony racked up 19 points (4-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 8-8 FT), eight rebounds and three assists in 37 minutes during Sunday's 116-114 overtime loss to the 76ers. Anthony didn't have his best shooting night, and in fact, he registered nearly half of his points from the free throw line, but he still ended quite close to putting up a double-double after notching a solid rebounding output. Anthony has excellent rebounding skills for a point guard, as he has 13 games with eight or more boards in the current campaign.

Anthony finished with 19 points (7-16 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, four assists and one block in 31 minutes during Saturday's 124-96 loss to Memphis. Anthony made only three of 10 field-goal attempts from two-point range, but he went 4-for-6 from beyond the arc to produce a team-best point tally. The four triples were the most the point guard has knocked down since Dec. 12. Anthony has tailed off a bit since a hot start to the campaign, but he is still producing solid numbers that include 17.4 points, 2.1 three-pointers, 5.7 boards and 5.7 assists per contest.
