Arron Afflalo injury: Magic swingman to miss Saturday's game against Heat, according to report

Arron Afflalo - Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Orlando's leading scorer will miss his fourth straight game.

Arron Afflalo will miss his fourth consecutive game Saturday when his Orlando Magic visit the Miami Heat, reports Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel. The veteran swingman is reeling from a sprained right ankle he sustained on February 21st, and Robbins also notes he is "under the weather."

The Magic would miss Afflalo, their leading scorer in the 2013/14 season, against any team, but especially against the two-time defending champion Heat. In three previous meetings against Orlando's in-state rivals, Afflalo has averaged 21.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game on 58.5 percent True Shooting.

In Afflalo's three-game absence, Maurice Harkless has started at small forward, averaging 12.3 points and 3.3 rebounds on 50 percent shooting from the floor.

Tipoff between Orlando and Miami is set for Saturday at 7:30 PM on Fox Sports Florida and ESPN 580 AM.
