Magic expected to get Gary Harris back in the lineup tonight

If all goes to plan, Harris is expected to make his season debut after undergoing an arthroscopic procedure in the fall due to a left knee meniscus injury. He noted earlier this week that he felt he would be making his return very soon.

““I’m moving around a little bit right now,”… “I’m really trying to get my timing back. Get back in basketball shape. I’m testing stuff out each day. I get more comfortable around the court.” – Gary Harris

The injuries have been adding up for the Magic as number one overall pick Paolo Bachero is to be remained sidelined for at least another week with an ankle injury. He’s leading Orlando is scoring this season with (23.5) points per game. Luckily, the team is expected to get some help in their front court tonight too. Wendell Carter Jr. is also expected to make a return tonight as well.
