October 1, 2013 Updates

Now that Harris has established himself, he's looking to take the next step: becoming an NBA All-Star. "Going into the season, being an All-Star is definitely one of my top individual goals," Harris said at Magic Media Day on Monday. "I have the ability, and with this team that's around me, and the coaching staff being able to embrace me as a player, I think it's important to go into the season with those types of goals."

The Magic's overall ATH score is 0.913, which is comfortably behind the New Orleans Hornets' mark of 0.926 for last in the league. Orlando's most athletic players are rookie forward Maurice Harkless, second-year forward Tobias Harris, and veteran big man Glen Davis. Entering Wednesday's games, Harkless ranked as the league's 120th most athletic player. No other team in the league had its most athletic player ranked so low overall; the Philadelphia 76ers, with gadget forward Thaddeus Young (85th in the league), came closest to matching the Magic in this respect.

Harris admitted he did not expect to be traded by the Bucks in the Feb. 21 deal which brought veteran guard J.J. Redick to Milwaukee. Beno Udrih and Doron Lamb also went to Orlando in the trade. "Hearing you're a key asset to the team and part of the team's future, yeah, I was surprised," Harris said. "But I know it's a business. It's part of the game. "You can't hold your head too long. And I knew the situation in Orlando was a good situation for me." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Another Magic player appeared on the court wearing Howard's old No. 12: Tobias John Harris. Harris played his first game since arriving from the Milwaukee Bucks in a multiplayer trade last week for J.J. Redick, scoring 14 points and blocking three shots against the Cleveland Cavaliers. "I've heard a lot about that because it's Dwight Howard's number," Harris said, managing a laugh. The Magic had planned to one day hang Howard's No. 12 in the rafters. But his departure created a rebuild and a chain reaction that eventually led to Redick's trade, which delivered Harris and two other of his Bucks teammates (Beno Udrih and Doron Lamb). "I was surprised by the move, but at the same time, I knew it was a better situation for me to join a young nucleus here," he said. Orlando Sentinel

Tobias Harris tried to do some drills Sunday morning but could barely raise his right arm over his head. So the Bucks rookie forward will not be able to play as Milwaukee faces the New Jersey Nets on Sunday night at the Prudential Center. Veteran Drew Gooden is not with the team as he continues his recovery from a sprained right wrist. Both players are listed as day-to-day. Rookie Jon Leuer again will get a start at center after lasting just 7 minutes against Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic on Friday in the Bucks' 94-85 defeat. Leuer, Larry Sanders and Jon Brockman should get the center minutes against the Nets' Brook Lopez, making his first appearance (and first start) of the season after missing 32 games with a fractured fifth metatarsal in his right foot. Harris was injured when he ran smack into the Magic's Howard, who was setting a screen during the fourth quarter Friday. And it came moments after Harris had converted a three-point play to give the Bucks a 10-point lead. They were outscored, 22-3, the rest of the way. Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Me: What are the doctors telling you right now? Tobias Harris: Basically, it's this thing, what you can quote is dehydration. But it's not as easy as just drinking water and getting it done. It's a thing they don't have a lot of research on, but they're checking my CK [creatine kinase] levels. Basically, my levels are pretty high, and it's a rare thing. Anytime you work out your levels are going to go up, your CK levels. So it's a thing that I've just got to wait on, have patience with, and just try to get through. Me: How hard is that? TH: It's real hard. You know, because I feel perfectly fine. I feel like I can play in a game, do whatever, practice. And I can't practice. It's tough. And I can't play. It's real tough, not being able to play as a rookie right now. Hopefully, good things will come soon. NBA.com
