The Orlando Magic announced Wednesday they have activated Tobias Harris for that night's game against the Detroit Pistons. Harris had missed Orlando's five previous games due to a sprained left ankle, but is ready to go against Detroit.

The Magic went 2-3 with Harris out of the lineup. To make room for him on the active roster, Orlando moved Moe Harkless to the inactive list, where he joins Andrew Nicholson word.

Harris, 22, ranks second on Orlando in scoring and in rebounding, posting per-game averages of 18 points and 6.9 boards. In two previous meetings with Detroit in the 2014/15 season, Harris averaged 19.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, and three assists on 57.1 percent shooting.

Tipoff between Orlando and Detroit will take place shortly after 7:30 PM Eastern.
