Orlando Magic injury update

Justin Edmonds

Several key Magic players have been out with various injuries.

When the Orlando Magic take on the Memphis Grizzlies Wednesday night, guard Arron Afflalo is expected to make his Magic debut. Afflalo averaged a career-high 15.2 points per game in 62 games with the Denver Nuggets last season.

Ish Smith, who is also yet to see any action in the preseason due to offseason shoulder surgery, made the trip to Memphis and is listed at "questionable." Smith will likely be the team's second point guard, backing up long time starter Jameer Nelson.

According to Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel,Al Harrington has "circled November 12 on his calender," which is the day he will meet with an orthopedic surgeon. Harrington had knee surgery during the offseason.

Rookie Maurice Harkless hasn't played in a game yet and is due back in mid-November.

Center Gustavo Ayon, who was acquired from the New Orleans Hornets in exchange for Ryan Anderson in a sign-and-trade, injured his thumb and will miss "at least two weeks."

Ayon injured his thumb during the first quarter of Orlando's victory over the San Antonio Spurs Sunday.

Tip-off between the Magic and Grizzlies is scheduled for 8:00 pm EST. For more on this game, check out Orlando Pinstriped Post and Straight Outta Vancouver.
