Orlando Magic forward Tobias Harris hopes to play Friday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers after missing all but one game in the 2013/14 season due to a high left ankle sprain, according to Josh Robbins. The Orlando Sentinel scribe says Harris had "no setbacks" in Thursday's practice and could play Friday, though it's "not definite" that he'll suit up.

Danielle Maslany of, meanwhile, says Harris "will be able to play."

Harris sustained the injury in a preseason game against the Dallas Mavericks. Orlando has gone 7-15 with Harris, its leading scorer a year ago at 17.3 points per game, logging just 16 minutes in one appearance.

Tipoff between Orlando and Cleveland is set for 7 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida in the Orlando market.
