I agree. I suspect McRoberts might surprise people. He's averaging 3.5 points/ rebounds in fifteen minutes, and when he's in he has generally been charged with banging inside on defense.

The other thing about losing BBD is Harkless and his lack of offensive skills at the moment. Its easy to say we have plenty of scorers, but you can't play two guys who don't score and expect to win consistently. If Moe stays in there, I suspect we start Nicholson to keep the scoring distributed.

I'm not sure Ayon slides to the 4 simply because he's gotten most of the time as backup center to Nik.

If only he could finish alley-oops again ...

I bet McBob starts.
I have no problems with his play at PF, he's just not a good SF.
He will get lots of rebounds.

JV likes to shelter Nicholson's minutes and give him good matchups, I don't see JV starting 2 rookies.

Hedo would be an interesting option at the 4, hopefully Vucevic can step up, he's about to get ALOT more touches

I think if you put McGee back then, he would get those blocks just as easily as Russell did. Russell's athleticism was well ahead of the players of his time, and that's about it.

McRob has hops, some handles and started many games for the Lakers logging over 30 minutes a few times last season effectively. So, I am interested to see what kind of rythmn he gets when given extended minutes with the Magic. Could help his trade value down the road too. Same with Ayon.

At least Team Chemistry at this point is at a season high of which can only help when someone important is out.

Talk about a double whammy to a teams defense. Lose Glen Davis and add Hedo Turkoglu.

Man I hope it's not too serious. This team is starting to play so well. Can't see the McRoberts hate. Hes turning out to be a very good bench player and we're not likely trading for a star. As far as draft picks, how many even turn out to be serviceable. I like how we were coming along.

I expect Nicholson to still come off the bench as the 2nd unit needs his scoring, but who knows.

Really don't mind if Nicholson or McRoberts starts. Both should see increased playing time. It'll give Nicholson good experience and boost the trade value of McRoberts. McRoberts hasn't annoyed me like he once did in the first 2 weeks of the season. I've actually enjoyed his game when he's playing the 4.

An MRI "showed no significant structural damage" to Glen Davis' left shoulder, Magic GM Rob Hennigan said.


Good.

In a statement, Hennigan said Davis "will be treated non-operatively" and that the muscles around the shoulder will be strengthened.

Whew! Our guys have been building some really good chemistry together, really didn't wan't to see the absence of such a main factor on the team disrupting that at all.

Yeah, I still want a concrete timetable (if it's even possible with these injuries), but this is definitely positive.

Shoulder sprain? Can't recall the last time I've heard of a player getting such an injury... how long does something like that take to heal? Is it like an ankle sprain?

Wow a shoulder sprain. I thought a dislocation for certain. That is good news.

Depending on the grade of the sprain in Davis' shoulder he could potentially return to #Magic in as little as 2-to-3 weeks. Good news indeed

As a person who has experienced a shoulder sprain I can attest that the initial injury hurts incredibly bad. It's probably worse than an ankle sprain, although I've never had a severe sprain there. As for a recovery I felt completely fine after a little over a week. I'm not a professional athlete who is taking constant strain on a consistent basis though so who really knows.

Magic Team Releases

“In the midst of a career year both as a go-to scorer and a first-time captain for the Orlando Magic, Glen Davis will have his season put on hold because of a shoulder injury. Davis, who is averaging career highs in minutes (33), points (16), rebounds (7.9) and assists (1.8), badly sprained his left shoulder on Wednesday night when he was fouled by hard by Washington’s Emeka Okafor. The injury will not require surgery, but could keep Davis out of action for a couple of weeks. A MRI conducted on Thursday showed no structural damage in Davis’ shoulder. The injury occurred with 47.8 seconds remaining in the Magic’s 90-83 defeat of the Washington Wizards. At the time of the injury, Davis sprained his left shoulder and ultimately had it popped back into place by team doctors. Davis stayed down on the floor for several minutes, biting his jersey, grimacing and writhing in pain. ‘After further evaluation by our medical staff, Glen Davis has been diagnosed with a left shoulder sprain,’ Magic General Manager Rob Hennigan said in a statement on Thursday. ‘The MRI showed no significant structural damage. He will be treated non-operatively. Treatment will include rest and subsequent strengthening of the muscles around his shoulder. His return will depend on progress made during his rehabilitation.’”
