Found January 13, 2013 on Orlando Magic Daily:
Glen Davis has been in the background for the Magic since spraining his shoulder at the end of the Magic's Dec. 19 win over the Wizards. Orlando has gone 1-10 in that time and the team is hungry to have its emotional leader and linchipin back. It appears Davis is close to making his return. Although when his return might happen is up to Jacque Vaughn and Vaughn has said with previous injuries that he will hold a player out until he is truly ready (certainly the Hedo Turkoglu struggles will make him pause before bringing Davis back until he is ready). David Steele noted on the broadcast of the Magic's win over the Clippers on FSFlorida that Glen Davis could be back as soon as this week. That would certainly be welcome news for the Magic. Of course, the exact date is still very much uncertain and will depend on how Davis' rehab is progressing and how he feels after participating in practice. [He’s] progressing, getting shots up,” coach Jacque Vaughn told Josh R...

Nikola Vucevic turning heads with recent play

Little did Nikola Vucevic know he was studying the man he eventually would replace. When Vucevic came to Simi Valley, Calif., from Montenegro in 2007 at the age of 17, he began watching Orlando Magic games on TV. That continued after he enrolled in 2008 at Southern California for what would be a three-year stint. I watched Dwight Howard, Vucevic said. Hes one of the best rebounders...

Magic guard Ish Smith jumps over John Wall (Video)

I can confidently say that this is the first Ish Smith post that we've attempted on That NBA Lottery Pick and he had to do something pretty impressive to earn it.Earlier tonight, the Orlando Magic guard was playing some solid defense on Wizards guard John Wall.As he went up to attempt a block, Ish cleared Wall and leapt over him:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Emeka Okafor had 19 points and 11 rebounds, leading six players in double figures for Washington in a 120-91 victory over the Orlando Magic on Monday night for the Wizards' third straight win. The Wizards were just 4-28 before their streak, but beat Oklahoma City, Atlanta and now Orlando -- all at home -- to nearly double their wins total. Washington leaves...

Road-weary Magic dominated in D.C.

The schedule is never an excuse for a loss. Everyone plays whatever the schedule makers give them whether they want to or not. The schedule does not care if you had to travel 2,668 miles a few days earlier. When the schedule says you play, you play. It cannot be used as an excuse -- each game still counts the same and each game starts at 0-0 with the chance to win in the next...

Afflalo, Redick awaken late for Magic (finally)

J.J. Redick was constant movement, and Matt Barnes was visibly tired chasing him around. Somehow the Magic had to know that would play a role in deciding this one. So when Redick gave pump fake to Barnes after coming around a screen at the top of the key, Barnes went flying, knowing he had to worry about the sharp shooter. Redick clamly dribbled to the side and pulled up for...

Assorted Weekend Observations: Redick, Magic Upset Clippers

***The Orlando Magic have proven once again that they are not to be slept on.  The Clippers, after getting off to a 16-5 start, took their collective foot off the gas, allowing the Magic to hang around.  The Magic went on to outscore the Clippers 29-18 in the fourth quarter, leading to a 104-101 victory.  Arron Afflalo, a Los Angeles native, dropped 8 of his 30 in that very fourth...

Wizards PG John Wall’s second game resulted in the another win. The team’s third straight win at home and second consecutive win over the Orlando Magic, a 120-91 win vs Magic. The Wizards are now 2-1 against the Magic this year but more importantly, they feel as though they’re beginning to gel. Wall’s return has given these [...]

After The Storm, Orlando's Future Seems Bright by Quentin Haynes

In his first season in Orlando, Arron Afflalo has played well for the Orlando Magic. Never in a million years did I think we'd be sitting just months out from the four team blockbuster that sent Dwight Howard to Los Angeles thinking: "Orlando really got off well in that trade." Orlando didn't get the best player in the deal, nor did they get the second or the...
