Orlando's injury issues force coach Frank Vogel into tough decisions regarding the lineups he starts, and New Orleans is a particularly unique case. Faced with the prospect of challenging both DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis, Vogel is turning to Marreese Speights as the starting power forward (in lieu of Mario Hezonja). D.J. Augustin will also make an appearance as a starter alongside Elfrid Payton.

Last time these teams played, the Orlando Magic were able to ride the New Orleans Pelicans' mistakes to a victory, capitalizing on poor shooting and turnovers from Cousins. Looking for their own bounce-back win, the Pelicans may not make those same mistakes again.

The game tips off at 7:00 PM Eastern, and you can catch it on Fox Sports Florida, NBA League Pass (if you're out of the Florida area), or on the radio at ESPN 580 Orlando.
