Gustavo Ayón is making progress in his recovery from a contusion in his right leg, but the Orlando Magic big man sat out his sixth consecutive game when the Magic hosted the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night. In a video in Spanish posted on the team's website, Ayón said, "Overall, I'm feeling better. But I'm going to wait some days, until I feel like I'm back 100 percent. I am not going to risk being out for another two weeks just to avoid missing one game." Orlando Sentinel

The Orlando Magic didn’t make it through this preseason unscathed. Big man Gustavo Ayón will miss at least the next two weeks because of a sprained left thumb, coach Jacque Vaughn said after the team completed its shootaround at FedEx Forum. “[It's] a good thing it happened now and early, and he can continue his conditioning and hopefully get right back into the fold after those few weeks,” Vaughn said.

Josh Robbins: Yesterday, I asked Gustavo Ayon whether he wanted to remain in the NBA. His answer: "It doesn't depend on me. It depends on the opportunities that I have in basketball. At that time I'll see if I have any other options. For right now, I'm with Orlando and I think I'll be here this year and many more to come. But after this year it's not my decision."
