INJURY TO WATCH
Magic forward Aaron Gordon (brain injury) is expected to miss tonight's game, while Evan Fournier (sprained MCL) is out indefinitely. For the Spurs, LaMarcus Aldridge (knee) soreness is questionable. Kawhi Leonard (quadriceps) appears to be nearing a return, but he will remain out tonight.
San Antonio has lost eight of its last 10 games and is right on the edge of the Western Conference playoff picture. The Spurs are coming off a brutally tough road stretch where they lost to the Warriors, Thunder and Rockets in the span of five days. Tonight's game should be easier, but I don't really trust this San Antonio squad. If Aldridge plays, maybe take a chance. But I'd rather side with an Orlando team that is 2-8 straight up over its last 10 contests, but 5-5 ATS.
