The Orlando Magic (4-11) will be significantly healthier for tonight’s road game vs. the Chicago Bulls (6-9) at United Center.
Guard Gary Harris will be making his season debut while starting big man Wendell Carter Jr. will be available after sitting for Wednesday’s loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves because of a strained right plantar fascia (soft tissue under the foot).
Harris was upgraded to probable on the team’s Thursday injury report after being sidelined for the season’s start, missing the first 15 games because of left knee injury recovery.
Harris had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in late August after tearing cartilage, which also forced him to miss training camp.
Carter, who told the Orlando Sentinel he had been dealing with the injury for the previous 5-6 games before being sidelined Wednesday, will wear extra padding in his shoe against his former team (8 p.m., Bally Sports Florida/Bally Sports+/FM 96.9 The Game).
