The Magic could be without the third-year pro on Wednesday night as he deals with a quad contusion.

When the Orlando Magic return to action on Wednesday night against the Golden State Warriors, they may be without the services of one of their leading scorers. Guard Evan Fournier, who missed a game last week with a heel contusion, is listed as questionable for Wednesday night's bout with a right quad contusion. In addition to Fournier's injury, the team could be without Tobias Harris, who's dealing with a strained right calf. Harris has missed Orlando's last two games, losses to the Miami Heat and Cleveland Cavaliers.

If both Fournier and Harris are unable to go, the Magic will be facing an uphill battle. They'll have to find multiple players to step up and pick up over 35 points per game of slack, along with over 10 rebounds.

The team could add one player, as a previous report indicated that reserve big man Kyle O'Quinn would be targeting a return against the Warriors from a sprained ankle.

In 14 games this season, Harris has averaged 18.8 points and 8.4 rebounds per game, while shooting an efficient 46.9 percent from the field. In 15 games, Fournier has averaged 16.5 points, 2.5 assists, 2.4 rebounds while making two three pointers per game.
