Tobias Harris - Jonathan Daniel
Orlando's three new players are cleared to practice and play. The team also announced it has requested waivers on Hakim Warrick.
The Orlando Magic announced Saturday afternoon that the three players it acquired from the Milwaukee Bucks in Thursday's trade are cleared to practice and to play, meaning that Tobias Harris, Doron Lamb, and Beno Udrih will be available and in uniform Saturday when Orlando hosts the Cleveland Cavaliers. Further, the team has requested waivers on Hakim Warrick, the veteran power forward it acquired from the Charlotte Bobcats on Thursday in exchange for Josh McRoberts. Warrick was never in the team's plans.
Harris, Lamb, and Udrih were not with the team for its game against the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday. Instead, they were in Orlando getting their physical examinations done.
The trades left the Magic with a depleted roster in Friday's loss, with just seven players available. Nonetheless, Orlando trailed by only three points with 4:05 remaining before the Grizzlies pulled away.
