In advance of their game Saturday against the Sacramento Kings, the Orlando Magic announced they've activated rookie guard Devyn Marble.

Marble suffered a rotator cuff injury in Orlando's victory against the Minnesota Timberwolves on November 7th, just his fourth appearance of the season. The Iowa product has logged five minutes in his rookie season, shooting 2-of-4 from the foor for four points.

Orlando acquired Marble's NBA Draft rights from the Denver Nuggets in the Arron Afflalo trade. The Iowa product averaged 12.5 points per game across his four-year collegiate career.

It's possible that Marble could see action against Sacramento, but given Ben Gordon's strong play of late--the veteran two-guard is shooting 61.3 percent from the floor on the Magic's five-game roadtrip to date, scoring 9.8 points in 17.2 minutes per--coach Jacque Vaughn may not have room for the rookie in his rotation.

Tipoff between the Magic and the Kings is set for 10:00 PM Eastern.
