As the Orlando Magic readied for Monday's game for the Washington Wizards, three injured players returned to practice with the team on Sunday, signaling that they could take the floor for game action in the near future.
Glen Davis, Al Harrington, and E'Twaun Moore practiced on Sunday in Washington, D.C. with the team, reports John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com, giving the Magic, in Denton's words, "encouragement and the belief that they are finally about to be whole again."
"I did as much rehab as I could and now it’s just about how I feel," Davis said. "We’ll see."
Davis, a co-captain and the team's second-leading scorer and rebounder, sprained his left shoulder in the Magic's first game against the Wizards. He has missed the Magic's 11 games in the interim, the first 10 of which Orlando lost.
Moore injured himself in Orlando's next meeting with Washington just nine days later. His left elbow sprained in a scrum for the loose ball. In his absence, Ish Smith has taken over backup point guard duties.
Harrington has yet to play for Orlando at all since joining it via the Dwight Howard trade in August. Dante Marchitelli says, via Twitter, that the 14-year pro "still has hurdles to clear" and that "[his] return date [is] not set," but the fact that the veteran took part in practice is a "good sign."
