Magic won't put timetables on when VOladipo & CFrye will return. But I'd be beyond shocked if Frye is ready for the opener.

Evan Fournier

Thanks to all the fans that showed up tonight!!!

David Baumann

Next on Baumann & Big Joe, @Morgan_Moriarty, who covers the #Gators, joins us to discuss Will Muschamp's situation: tunein.com/radio/810-CBS-…

John Denton

After going through stretching, sprints & dunks, @Orlando Magic G @Victor Oladipo is held out of scrimmaging. He's riding a bike to stay loose.

Josh Robbins

Victor Oladipo is sitting out the latest portion of the practice, which features some light work in transition.

Josh Robbins

The highlights so far have been dunks by Aaron Gordon, Victor Oladipo and Willie Green.

Josh Robbins

Victor Oladipo, with a brace on his knee, is participating so far. Channing Frye (knee) is not participating.

Josh Robbins

Well, the first 12 minutes of the #Magic open practice were spent with players stretching and jogging.

John Denton

Nice crowd on hand for @Orlando Magic Open Practice at the Amway Center. http://t.co/9m82ThB98p

Josh Robbins

Maybe 800 people inside Amway Center, with 10 minutes until the Magic begin their open practice.

Brian Schmitz

ESPN justifies hack job on Kobe by saying he turned down interview through Lakers spokesman. Really? Leave L.A. reporters to now ask him.

Brian Schmitz

ESPN's piece on Kobe Bryant "destroying" Lakers one-sided. It can't find him before/after a preseason game? Gutless. es.pn/1omRefb

Who are the NBA's most accomplished players? @Jessica Camerato takes a look at the top 3: bit.ly/1vWsTiu

Josh Robbins

An obvious point, but the Magic will pick up their 15-16 options on Oladipo, Fournier, Harkless & Nicholson before the 10/31 deadline

Mary Stevens

Who are three under the radar rookies to watch for this season? Here's my list: basketballinsiders.com/3-under-the-ra…

Elfrid Payton

Pshhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!

David Baumann

This "Seahawks admit failure with Harvin" narrative makes absolutely no sense. How quickly people forget they just won a Super Bowl w/ him.

Tobias Harris

Can't wait to get this great word in at @Deeper_Church so thankful for all the many blessings! Enjoy your Sunday y'all.

Evan Dunlap

Despite solid showings from Nicholson and O'Quinn, the Magic fell to Philly in preseason action tonight sbnation.com/e/6765194

Evan Dunlap

Magic gave up just 33 in the second half, but still finish well short. 95-84 the final in Allentown.

Evan Dunlap

Willie Green has taken 16 shots in 17 minutes.

Evan Dunlap

Willie Green shoots an airball, resulting in a clock violation. Magic could have cut deficit to six with a trey, seven with a deuce.

Evan Dunlap

Magic within single digits now for the first time since the late stages of the first quarter.

Evan Dunlap

Lots of things going on in this photo, but Grant Hill sharing a laugh with Jeff Turner is my favorite usatodaysportsimages.com/preview/8147786

Josh Robbins

Andrew Nicholson: 23 points on 10-of-18 shooting with 9 minutes left in the fourth quarter.

Evan Dunlap

Not counting Kyle O'Quinn, Orlando is 7-of-18 (38.9 percent) at the foul line.

John Denton

Shorthanded @Orlando Magic trail @Philadelphia 76ers 77-61 at the end of 3 quarters here in Allentown, PA. PF @Andrew Nicholson has 19 pts for ORL

Evan Dunlap

Magic down 16 at the end of the third. They'll (somehow) still be in this game if they have another 15-point defensive quarter in the fourth

Evan Dunlap

Magic two-guards Evan Fournier and Willie Green are a combined 0-of-11 from the floor for no points.

Evan Dunlap

In a game Orlando trails by 17, Elfrid Payton is a plus-3.

Evan Dunlap

Magic open the second half on a 15-5 run to draw to within 14.

Josh Robbins

With Orlando trailing 65-45, rookie PG Elfrid Payton is the only Magic player without a negative plus/minus tonight. (He's at zero.)

Evan Dunlap

Less than two minutes into the second half and Jacque Vaughn has already called a timeout.

Evan Dunlap

Favorite Magic/Sixers memory, excluding Hedo's playoff 3: ORL beating PHI big 2 yrs ago, prompting postgame Doug Collins existential crisis

Evan Dunlap

Magic can't give up more than, say, 30 points in the second half if they hope to win.

Evan Dunlap

Nine of Magic's 12 first-half turnovers of the live-ball variety, by my count.

Evan Dunlap

Sixers over Magic, 62-38, at halftime. Philly shooting 48.9 percent from the floor, 14/16 FTs (87.5 percent)

Evan Dunlap

Shoutout to Magic radio pXp man Dennis Neumann, doing this game solo from Allentown.

John Denton

The "Easton Assassin" Larry Holmes -- a former heavyweight champion of the world -- is sitting courtside for tonight's @Orlando Magic game.

Josh Robbins

Sitting courtside: former heavyweight champion of the world Larry Holmes, a native of Easton, Pa.

Evan Dunlap

With 5:48 to play in the half, Magic trail Sixers by 14. Harkless, Nicholson, Dedmon only ORL players w/ a field goal.

John Denton

Poor finish to the first quarter leaves the @Orlando Magic down 37-23 to @Philadelphia 76ers PF @Andrew Nicholson playing well with 10 pts on 5-8 shooting.

Josh Robbins

Aaron Gordon checks into the game, so he is facing his brother, Drew Gordon. They are not guarding each other.

John Denton

Talk about brotherly love -- @Orlando Magic F @Aaron Gordon & @Philadelphia 76ers C Drew Gordon facing off tonight in NBA. Dream come true, both said.

Evan Dunlap

Magic having Evan Fournier play point with Elfrid Payton sitting. Payton had four assists, one TO, and two fouls in 8 mins. 0 FGAs, 1/2 FTs

Josh Robbins

Plenty of seats available in Allentown: http://t.co/rIg3smXUxn

Payton, Fournier, Harkless Nicholson, Dedmon starters tonight for @Orlando Magic vs. @Philadelphia 76ers

Josh Robbins

Darryl Dawkins, who grew up in Orlando, is in the arena tonight.

Josh Robbins

Channing Frye, out tonight with a knee sprain, is putting up some jumpers to get some work in.

Josh Robbins

There's no need to play regulars like Vucevic and Harris tonight after they played extensively last night.

Evan Dunlap

Have we agreed on #OQuinnski for when Kyle O'Quinn drills a three-pointer or

Josh Robbins

Dedmon, Nicholson, Marble, Harkless should get heavy minutes tonight. Payton and AGordon will get taste of a back-to-back.

Evan Dunlap

The Magic and Sixers are waitin' here in Allentown for tonight's preseason game. Tip at 7:30. sbnation.com/e/6761840

Evan Dunlap

Kyle O'Quinn put up 14, 7, and five, with two threes, tonight. Hedoesque in Stan's return.

does the NBA 2K version of @talkhoops tweet about B-movies or is that just the real-life one?

Will Bynum for Joel Anthony is a steal for Boston. Then again, I've always loved Will Bynum.

Great PA work at Amway Center by @eksports_radio He loves what he does & brings energy whether working for @Orlando Magic or @UCF_Football

Josh Robbins

It looks like Jacque Vaughn is giving Willie Green, Maurice Harkless & Andrew Nicholson the night off. Magic play 2moro night.

John Denton

Pass of the night for the @Orlando Magic when @Ben Gordon wraps a pass around a defender and hits @Nikola Vucevic for a dunk.

Josh Robbins

Grant Hill and Bubba Watson are at Amway Center tonight.

Josh Robbins

Halftime: Magic lead the Pistons 54-49. Harris: 13 points. Vucevic 12 points.

Josh Robbins

Tonight's anthem was 1 of the better renditions in a while. It was sung by Cynthia Burgos, the daughter of Magic strength coach Bill Burgos.

Josh Robbins

An impressive night from Kyle O'Quinn so far. Active on defense and a few good passes on offense.

Josh Robbins

Aaron Gordon sinks a 3 from the right corner area. Magic lead 32-21. His shooting motion is smoother than in summer league.
