Tonight, the Orlando Magic host the Charlotte Bobcats in their second game at Amway Center. Charlotte's ripe for revenge after the Magic swept it out of its first playoff appearance in franchise history, while the Magic will continue to work on their playbook, potentially without Dwight Howard, who may get the night off.
I'm here at Amway Center to cover the action live.
UPDATE: Howard is indeed sitting out tonight, as I tweeted from the Magic locker room. One presumes that Marcin Gortat will start in his place, but because coach Stan Van Gundy was not available before the game, I was unable to ask who will get the nod.
UPDATE: tonight's lineups have been posted and there are five surprises on the Magic's side. Indeed, Orlando's second unit will start tonight. Click through for the full update.
Vince Carter is also out.
