Kyle O'Quinn injury: Sore ankle costs Magic big man two practices, according to report

Kyle O'Quinn - Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

O'Quinn injured his right ankle Wednesday and has not practiced in the two days since, leaving his status for Saturday in question.

The Orlando Magic could find themselves without backup center Kyle O`Quinn for Saturday's game against the Dallas Mavericks.

The second-year big man sustained an injury to his right ankle Wednesday against the Milwaukee Bucks, reports Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel. O'Quinn checked out of the game with 1:24 to play in the third quarter and did not return. He did not practice Thursday or Friday, leaving his status for Saturday in question.

If O'Quinn is unable to play--and so far there's no indication, one way or another, as to his status--then Orlando might have to use Andrew Nicholson at center. Solomon Jones, the Magic's other backup big man, remains out indefinitely with a torn lateral meniscus in his left knee.

O'Quinn has appeared in each of Orlando's nine games to date, averaging 5.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.1 blocks in 13.4 minutes.
