Tobias Harris will start for the Orlando Magic on Sunday against the Philadelphia 76ers, reports John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com. Harris had missed the Magic's three previous games owing to a sore knee.

Sunday's game will be Harris' first in exactly two weeks. On February 8th, the Tennessee product scored 15 points on 6-of-17 shooting in a 98-97 loss to the Chicago Bulls.

On the season, Harris is averaging 17.4 points and 6.6 rebounds, both of which figures rank second on the team to Nik Vučević.

The Sixers can't be too pleased to learn Harris will face them Sunday: in the teams' first meeting, he sent Philadelphia to defeat with a pull-up jumper that just beat the final buzzer.

Tipoff between the Magic and the Sixers is set for 6:00 PM.
