On the Magic: Orlando Pinstriped Post / Magic Basketball / Orlando Sentinel

Just three days after the Orlando Magic rallied to defeat the Milwaukee Bucks behind a stunning 4th-quarter run, the series shifts back to Milwaukee. The Bucks likely won't have to contend with Jason Richardson, who has been experiencing chest pain. That's one less long-range shooter to worry about, but with Ryan Anderson bombing away from outside, defending the three will still be crucial in earning the season's first victory over the Magic.

For the Bucks, the statuses of Drew Gooden (wrist/knee) and Tobias Harris (shoulder contusion) remain in doubt after both players sat out yesterday's win over the Nets. Prior to the game Scott Skiles had hoped one or both would be ready either tonight or for Wednesday's game in Chicago. Gooden did not travel with the team to Orlando and New Jersey after seeing a specialist for his wrist last week, while Harris hurt his shoulder running into a hard screen against the Magic on Friday. Harris was in considerable pain and went to the locker room immediately after the play, though it was later confirmed to be a contusion rather than a more serious separation or dislocation of the shoulder.
