Magic will be shorthanded against Grizzlies

E'Twaun Moore - Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Thursday's trades, as well as an injury to Jameer Nelson, will give Orlando just seven healthy players for Friday's tilt against Memphis.

The Orlando Magic will only have seven players available Friday night when they visit the Memphis Grizzlies. The Magic traded J.J. Redick, Ish Smith, Gustavo Ayón, and Josh McRoberts at Thursday's NBA trade deadline, and the three players they received in return will not join the team until Saturday in Orlando. Further complicating the situation are injuries to Jameer Nelson's knee and to Glen Davis' foot, the suspension that Hedo Türkoğlu faces.

Orlando's available players are Arron Afflalo, Maurice Harkless, DeQuan Jones, E'Twaun Moore, Andrew Nicholson, Kyle O'Quinn, and Nikola Vučević. According to Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel, veteran forward Al Harrington will dress on Friday for the first time in his Magic tenure. Magic coach Jacque Vaughn could play him, but whether he will remains unclear.

Friday marks the second straight season in which Orlando's been shorthanded in its lone visit to Memphis. In 2012, the Magic had just eight players in a loss to the Grizzlies. Among the players who got burn that night, Türkoğlu is the only one still on the team.
