The two swingmen missed Orlando's preseason game Sunday and will likely sit out Thursday's as well.
The Orlando Magic have listed Arron Afflalo and Christian Eyenga as "doubtful" for Thursday's preseason game against the Philadelphia 76ers, reports Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel. Neither swingman played in Sunday's exhibition loss against the New Orleans Hornets, and both are suffering from hamstring strains.
Orlando on Tuesday signed free-agent swingman Chris Johnson, an undrafted rookie out of Dayton, which addition Robbins says may signal that Afflalo's absence could extend beyond Thursday's game against Philly.
Afflalo and Eyenga join Maurice Harkless among injured Magic wings. Harkless, whom the Magic acquired from Philadelphia in the Dwight Howard trade, has missed all of training camp as he recovers from a sports hernia.
Afflalo averaged 15.2 points per game for the Denver Nuggets in 2011/12. Eyenga, for his part, posted 2.4 points per game that same season, which campaign he split between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Los Angeles Lakers.
