The Orlando Magic won't have Kyle O'Quinn available for Sunday's game against the Brooklyn Nets, and for possibly a bit longer, as he continues to recover from a sprained ankle. That news comes via Basketball Insiders reported Mary Stevens. Indeed, O'Quinn remained in Orlando while his team embarked on a three-game roadtrip.

O'Quinn suffered the injury on opening night, a game which he started in place of the injured Channing Frye. The third-year big man tallied four points and five rebounds in that contest. In his sophomore campaign, O'Quinn made 69 appearances, including 19 starts, averaging 6.2 points and 5.3 rebounds overall.

In O'Quinn's absence, Frye has taken over as Orlando's starter at the four, posting per-game averages of 8.2 points and 5.4 rebounds, with 1.4 threes, in 31.2 minutes per game.

After Sunday's game, Orlando's trip continues against the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday, November 11th, and concludes the next evening against the New York Knicks.
