Does the team need to make a trade before the deadline to get back into the playoff hunt? Hennigan: The simple answer to that is we need to explore every and all options to improve the team, and so we’re going to be aggressive. We’re going to be active in our discussions and in the opportunities we seek out. So we’re going to look to be active. I’m not sure it’s a “necessity,” but it’s certainly something that’s in our best interests to explore.

Magic coach Frank Vogel said there is a temptation to get Fournier back on the floor as soon as possible, but the team also wants him to fully recover from his injury this time around. Vogel started veteran C.J. Watson a second consecutive game in place of the injured Fournier on Sunday. “It’s a fine line and (Fournier’s desire to return) probably does work against him,’’ Vogel said. “We want this to be put behind him. We don’t want him to play a couple and then have to sit another two weeks, play a couple and have to sit. Hopefully when we get him back this time it’s behind him.’’
