After their surprising and decisive opening-night win against the Denver Nuggets, the Orlando Magic host the Phoenix Suns and look to enjoy their first 2-0 start since the 2009/10 season. Tipoff is set for 6 PM on Fox Sports Florida in the Orlando market.
Losing starting small forward Hedo Türkoğlu to injury complicates Orlando's path to victory, given the lack of great alternatives on its roster. After Sunday's shootaround, coach Jacque Vaughn declined to reveal the name of whom he's tapped to replace Türkoğlu in the starting five. It's possible that rookies DeQuan Jones or Maurice Harkless could get the call.
