Six Orlando players are expected to miss Monday's game in Philadelphia, leaving the Magic with just nine players.

The Orlando Magic will be extremely shorthanded Monday night when they take on the Philadelphia 76ers at Wells Fargo Center. According to John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com, starting point guard Jameer Nelson (arm), starting shooting guard J.J. Redick (shoulder), and starting small forward Arron Afflalo (calf) will all miss the game. So too will reserve swingman DeQuan Jones (foot). Those injuries come on top of ones to Al Harrington (knee) and Glen Davis (foot), leaving Orlando with just nine healthy players for Monday's game.

The Magic's available players are center Gustavo Ayón, small forward Maurice Harkless, combo forward Josh McRoberts, combo guard E'Twaun Moore, power forward Andrew Nicholson, center Kyle O'Quinn, point guard Ish Smith, combo forward Hedo Türkoğlu, and center Nikola Vučević.

Afflalo, Redick, Davis, and Nelson are Orlando's four leading scorers in 2012/13. At 12.1 points per game, Vučević leads the Magic's healthy players in scoring. Further, the injuries leave Orlando with only Smith and Moore available to play either guard spot. One assumed that Türkoğlu will have to spend some time Monday at point guard, and that Harkless will need to shift to shooting guard.
