Charlotte is dealing wit some injury problems ahead of tonight's game. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (right ankle strain) is probable for tonight in Orlando, but Johnny O'Braynt (ankle) remains out and so does Miles Plumlee (right calf strain). Kidd-Gilchrist suffered the injury in Monday's win over the Hawks but he says he's fine. Kemba Walker finished with 16 points and six assists in that victory over Atlanta.

The Magic enter play tonight having won back-to-back games, including a come-from-behind victory in overtime versus the 76ers on Monday. Nikola Vucevic finished with 26 points, 13 rebounds and two assists in that victory, while Elfrid Payton scored 10 points while adding 13 rebounds, four assists and three steals.
