Orlando forward Tobias Harris out indefinitely with ankle sprain

In what is going to be a tough season in Orlando, Tobias Harris was one of the reasons to tune in — the young forward had a sparkling second half of the season ( 17.3 points and 8.5 rebounds per game after being traded from the Bucks to the Magic) and we wanted to see what he could do if you gave him more run and freedom.

But the ankle sprain he suffered a couple weeks ago and has kept him out of the regular season so far is serious enough that Jacque Vaughn said Monday that Harris is out indefinitely and is weeks away from returning, reports John Denton of the Magic’s official Web site.

Harris is not practicing with the team right now and Vaugn also called the sprain “severe.” So, that’s not good.

Announcement: Pro Basketball Talk’s partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day $15,000 Fantasy Basketball league for Monday, Nov. 4th games. It’s just $10 to join and first prize is $2,000. Starts at 7pm ET. Here’s the link.

With Glen Davis back practicing but not ready to play, that means a whole lot of Andrew Nicholson and Jason Maxiell along the front line for the Magic, who are off to a 2-2 start this season.

    Good, no reason to rush him back. Nicholson has been looking pretty good so this’ll give home some more time at least.

    No rush to bring him back too soon. We’re already doing too good for a tanking season lol
