Glen Davis Forgoes Doctor’s Orders To Wear Sling

Orlando Magic power forward Glen Davis said he’s doing a better job lately of keeping his spirits up after he learned the left shoulder sprain he suffered last week won’t require surgery. Davis said the pain was excruciating when he suffered the injury last Wednesday in a win over the Washington Wizards. The next day, an MRI revealed that, in the words of general manager Rob...

Al Harrington Making Progress Toward Return, Says He Has No Plan To Retire

Although he acknowledges he’s a ways away from playing in a game, Orlando Magic power forward Al Harrington appears to be making significant progress in his return from a staph infection in his right knee. Harrington ran a bit up and down the court and did some light jumping Monday at Amway Center in a post-practice shooting session that lasted about 30 minutes. “That was a...

Merry Christmas from Orlando Magic Daily

For the first time in five years, the Magic are not playing on Christmas Day. Stan Van Gundy is sooooo jealous right now (he missed playing on Christmas only once in his five years and he always made sure the media knew how much he loved playing on Christmas). But Van Gundy's feelings aside, I will be enjoying my afternoon of basketball -- and some Chinese food and maybe...

Turnovers cost Magic their win streak

The final two possessions for the Magic summed up their night and erased any warm feelings from a 10-0 run that turned what might have been a runaway fourth quarter into a tight battle.  Down by three points, J.J. Redick got into the paint and tried a risky pass to Gustavo Ayon. Ayon fumbled the ball away for the Magic's 17th turnover of the game. A missed DeMar DeRozan...

Ryan Anderson makes return to Orlando

Ryan Anderson played his last game with the Magic seven months ago. When he returns to Orlando on Wednesday, it might seem more like seven years ago. Management has changed. The coaching staff is completely different. Only two Magic players are expected to get minutes who had been teammates with Anderson last May. Its going to be different, obviously, said Anderson, a forward who...

Turnovers frustrate Magic again

One play does not define an entire game. It might be the postgame focus or the highlight seen on SportsCenter. But it was not the game. When Gustavo Ayon went to the foul line with 2.4 seconds left in the game and a two-point deficit after a brilliant transition drive and dish by Jameer Nelson, the game very much rested on Ayon's foul shots. Ayon entered the game shooting...

Harrington Making Significant Progress Toward Return

Al Harrington is recovering faster than expected from a staph infection in his knee.

Magic rally late, edged by Jazz

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) --With one of his veteran floor leaders sidelined for an unknown amount of time, Utah Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin wasn't exactly sure how his team would respond against Orlando after a pair of lopsided losses. He got a welcomed surprise. Paul Millsap scored 18 points, Gordon Hayward added 17 and the Jazz survived a fourth-quarter rally to slip past the Magic...

Jazz rally in fourth quarter to edge Magic

ORLANDO -- After getting hammered the night before in Miami and falling behind by 16 points in Orlando on Sunday night, the Utah Jazz could have packed it in early and headed home for the holidays. Instead, the Jazz just kept on plugging, scratching out a hard-fought, 97-93 victory over the Magic to close their Eastern swing with a win that proved how resilient they really are...

Magic May Have Missed Last Chance to Hit .500

Whenever a team’s highest usage player gets injured, you can expect a serious dip in that team's production. On Wednesday night, in the last-minute of a victory over the Washington Wizards, Glen “Big Baby” Davis fell to the ground screaming in agony. It was later diagnosed as a left should sprain, an injury that generally takes between 4 to 6 weeks to recover from. Davis...

Orlando Magic: Season One 1989-1990 (Part 1 of 2)

Coming off an outstanding junior year at the University of Illinois, the selection of Nick Anderson was a no-brainer. Later it was revealed that Denver had tried to move up in the draft in order to select Anderson. Fortunately for the Magic, Denver had sought Indiana’s 7th overall pick, but Indiana wanted too much in return. Their asking price was all-star guard, Lafayette Lever...

Jazz 97, Magic 93

ORLANDO -- Paul Millsap scored 18 points to lead the Utah Jazz to a 97-93 victory over the Orlando Magic on Sunday night at the Amway Arena. Reserve Gordon Hayward had 17 points, while Al Jefferson and Derrick Favors each had 12 for the Jazz (15-14). The Magic (12-15) got 20 points from Arron Afflalo, while Nikola Vucevic had 16 points and 16 rebounds. Orlando shot 50 percent...
