The Orlando Magic will play without Tobias Harris for the third consecutive game Wednesday, coach Jacque Vaughn said, owing to a sprained left ankle. Word on that story comes from Orlando Sentinel scribe Josh Robbins.

Harris ranks as Orlando's second-leading scorer and rebounder, posting 18 points and 6.9 rebounds per game on 55.4 percent True Shooting. In the four games he's missed due to injury in the 2014/15 campaign, Orlando owns a 1-3 record.

On Monday, the Magic did just fine without the Tennessee product, riding Nik Vučević and Victor Oladipo to a 121-114 upset of the Chicago Bulls. Vučević and Oladipo scored 33 points apiece. Starting in Harris' place for the second straight game, rookie wing Devyn Marble tallied five points, five boards, four assists, and three steals in 31 minutes.

Tipoff between the Magic and Rockets is set for 7:00 PM.
