Orlando Magic Hedo Turkoglu complains after he picked up second foul against New York Knicks in NBA basketball game in New York Reuters

The Orlando Magic are a scrappy team. They are off to a 2-5 start but they are not making it easy on anybody. They just don’t have a lot of firepower and what veterans they can trust have been out — Jameer Nelson for a sixth game in a row Wednesday, for example.

Then there is Hedo Turkoglu, who needed hand surgery and was to be out a month until early December, but now has had a setback and will miss another four weeks, tweets John Denton, team reporter for the Magic’s official Web site.

Hey, rookie coach Jacque Vaughn — welcome to rebuilding in the NBA.

If you want a bright side, this means more minutes for Moe Harkless, who had his best game of the season Tuesday night.

    Harkless will continue to improve, hopefully.

    Harkless looked good at times last night. Hopefully he can continue to grow until Turk comes back.

    Remember this is still pre season for mo’ and he’s coming back from surgery. Give him and Nicholson another month and a healthy jameer and we’ll be winning more games. #BetterDaysAhead
