Magic vs. Pistons: Victor Oladipo and Solomon Jones to start; Tobias Harris available

Victor Oladipo will return to the Orlando Magic's starting lineup Sunday against the Detroit Pistons, coach Jacque Vaughn said in his meeting with the media less than two hours before tipoff. Oladipo will start in the backcourt alongside shooting guard Arron Afflalo.

Solomon Jones, a training-camp invitee, joins the Magic's game of musical chairs at power forward; he'll get his first start of the preseason Sunday. Kyle O`Quinn, Jason Maxiell, and Andrew Nicholson have also started there this preseason. In four exhibition appearances, Jones is averaging 3.5 points and three rebounds. The Mount Dora native has 270 games of NBA experience across seven seasons and is hoping to make Orlando's roster.

All told, then, Orlando's starting five against Detroit will be Oladipo, Afflalo, Maurice Harkless, Jones, and Nikola Vučević.

Tobias Harris will be available for Orlando on Sunday, Vaughn said, after Vaughn held him out of the Magic's last two games as a precaution. Veteran point guard Ronnie Price could play Sunday after being unavailable for the Magic's first four games. Doron Lamb is still out after injuring his ankle in training camp.
