The injury bug has bit the Orlando Magic once again, as the team announced that rookie swing man Devyn Marble would be out for 4-to-6 weeks due to a detached retina in his left eye.

Marble, the 56th pick in last June's NBA Draft by the Denver Nuggets, has appeared in 16 games, seven of those being starts. In those 16 games, the rookie from Iowa has averaged a pedestrian 2.3 points, 1.9 rebounds, and 1.1 assists per game in 13 minutes of action.

The rookie has also spent time with the Magic's D-League affiliate Erie BayHawks this season, appearing in six games, spanning three different stints with the team. Marble has averaged 13 points, 5.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.1 steals per game in 30 minutes of playing time in those six games.

Since Marble has not been seeing consistent playing time for roughly a month now, the injury won't have a major impact on the Magic's rotation. However, should the Magic have more injuries occur on the wing, it could become problematic with their limited depth.
