Orlando Magic Injury Update – IT’S NOT PRETTY!
***Mayday! Mayday! Mayday! We’re taking indirect tank fire!***
The already short handed Magic will be even more short handed tonight when they face off against the 76ers in Philly. Per John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com, the Magic will be without Jameer Nelson (arm), J.J. Redick (shoulder), Arron Afflalo (calf) and DeQuan Jones (ankle). Redick is slated to have an MRI on Tuesday once the team returns home.
This would typically be the point in a season where a team would sign a guy to a 10-day contract to bridge the injury gap. Unfortunately, the Magic roster is maxed out at 15.
Your projected depth chart for tonight’s game:
PG: Ish Smith/Hedo
SG: E’Twaun Moore/Hedo
SF: Maurice Harkless/Josh McRoberts
PF: Andrew Nicholson/Gustavo Ayon
C: Nik Vucevic/Kyle O’Quinn
Unavailable: Nelson, Redick, Afflalo, Davis, Harrington and Jones.
