Orlando Magic Daily:
When it rains, it pours.
Late in Saturday's game against Milwaukee, J.J. Redick appeared to be favoring his shoulder as he went to the bench late in the game. Redick had to fight off Monta Ellis for most of the night but it appeared that his foray into the paint is what knicked him this time.
And it appears it got him a little bit harder than initially believed.
John Denton of Orlando Magic.com reports J.J. Redick, along with Jameer Nelson, Arron Afflalo and DeQuan Jones will be out for tonight's game.
No JJ (shoulder), Jameer (arm), Afflalo (calf) or DeQuan Jones (ankle) tonight for #Magic vs #Sixers

Indeed, that is some bad news. The Magic are extremely short-handed with Glen Davis also out and Al Harrington probably not quite ready to return. Tonight's likely starting lineup will feature both Ish Smith and E'Twaun Moore in the backcourt. And that might be the extent of the team's guard...

Orlando Magic guard and sharpshooter J.J. Redick appears to perennially be on the team’s trade block, but at this point most clubs ESPN’s Marc Steinspeaks with believe he will “definitely be dealt” between now and the deadline.The Orlando sharpshooter is the player, with Gay off the board, most teams cite when asked to name a player who will definitely be dealt between now...
BOSTON — Seven years removed from his last 3-pointer with Duke, J.J. Redick does not receive the same relentless treatment from fans as he did early in his career. Back then, the anti-Duke armies at certain arenas would boo loudly whenever the former NCAA Player of the Year touched the ball or kinda, sorta exaggerated contact whenever a defender bumped him. Although he never averaged...
J.J. Redick has reportedly drawn interest from the Boston Celtics and other teams. ESPN's Marc Stein reported that the Orland Magic's sharpshooting guard is the player most team officials name when asked "who will definitely be dealt
between now and the deadline."
What do the Magic want? Draft picks or a good young player on a rookie contact.
The Magic have made no secret that they are hoping to develop talent and home-grow a team. That is the process the Spurs and Thunder used. That is why every trade rumor includes a desire for Orlando to acquire draft picks or young players on cheap contracts.
This season though is also about the development of Jacque Vaughn as a head coach.
Vaughn has been out of the NBA for...
If there was a sense of urgency in this snoozer of a game, it likely came in the fourth quarter. The Magic were not getting much offensively, were doing enough defensively to keep the scoring margin close but not inspiring much hope that they would come back and win. Not with Jameer Nelson, Arron Afflalo and J.J. Redick out with nagging injuries. Orlando had just nine players available...
Lots of guys sitting out tonight. Here's who we know for sure won't be suiting up:
Last night's victory over the Orlando Magic was the least bit impressive.
The victory was not the night's biggest story; Thaddeus Young's injury was. Young suffered a left hamstring strain during second quarter of the Sixers 78-62 victory over the Magic. News came back, but Young did not.
Today, Young went and got an MRI done on the hamstring and it revealed that he has...

Though Philadelphia has struggled with Orlando in recent years, a visit from the reeling Magic might provide the 76ers with a good chance to match their longest winning streak of the season.

LA Clippers -250 @ Orlando Magic
The Magic are reeling, having dropped 10 straight. They will also likely be without Jameer Nelson, JJ Redick, Glen Davis, and Aaron Afflalo.
The Clips are on a bit of a slide themselves, having lost three straight. They should be able to shake that tonight, even if Blake sits as a precaution.
