The Orlando Magic will be without its starting backcourt Saturday. Arron Afflalo (calf) and Jameer Nelson (forearm) are both out, according to Magic beater writer Josh Robbins. X-rays were negative on Nelson's arm, the Orlando Sentinel reported. This is the fourth game Afflalo has missed. No word on when he's expected back. E'Twaun Moore will need to pick up the slack. In 24 minutes Friday, Moore scored 14 points, hit a three, pulled down four rebounds, dished four assists and stole a ball. The Magic have been decimated by injuries this season. Glen Davis has been lost for the season with a broken foot, and now the Magic are without Nelson and Afflalo. Expect a big game from J.J. Redick and Nikola Vucevic. Jameer Nelson (forearm) and Arron Afflalo (calf) will not play for the #Magic against the #Bucks. — Josh Robbins (@JoshuaBRobbins) February 3, 2013

Getting to know the Magic: Jacque Vaughn

The word player-coach stems back to even before the 1960s, when Bill Russell was both player and coach for the Boston Celtics. Although Russell is the most known player-coach in the NBA, the position was a staple for many professional teams. The practice is no longer allowed in the NBA. If it were, one would have to wonder if Orlando Magic head coach Jacque Vaughn could fill the...

The hits keep coming as Celtics smother Magic

Nelson doubled over in pain as Boston...

Comments from the Other Side - Magic 2/1

What would a Comments post be without a wheelchair mention and some officiating complaints.   Seems like they are in every thread.  Love that our bench is producing so well these past few games.   I was stuck with the Magic feed last night.  I missed Mike and Tommy but even worse, they kept getting the names of the Celtics wrong.   I've highlighted my favorites.  What...

Big improvements, big challenges after Magic lose to Bucks

Whether this is coach-speak...

Banged-up Magic fall short in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE -- Missing three-fifths of their regular starting lineup, the Orlando Magic could have been easy pickings for a surging Milwaukee Bucks team looking to snap a two-game losing streak. Instead, the Magic made things tough on Milwaukee, which responded to every attempt at an Orlando rally before pulling away late for a 107-98 victory at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. The...

Green Envy: What Orlando Magic Fans Said - Feb. 1, 2013

The Boston Celtics won their third-straight game without Rajon Rondo on the floor. With a 97-84 trouncing of the Orlando Magic, Boston is back at .500.
