It's official: Dewayne Dedmon and Tobias Harris will not play tonight. Willie Green is available to play.

John Denton

. @Orlando Magic will be WITHOUT @Tobias Harris (ankle) and @Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) vs. @Denver Nuggets ... Chance that @Willie Green could play.

Josh Robbins

Tobias Harris (ankle) and Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) likely will not play tonight vs Denver. Willie Green likely will play.

Sam Gardner

Awful stuff there from @UCFSports, who’s at UCF, where a child seems to have been seriously hurt by a foul ball at a Knights baseball game.

Josh Robbins

Per @EliasSports, the only @NBA rookie to have 3 consecutive triple-doubles was Oscar Robertson. Elfrid Payton has 2 in a row.

Josh Robbins

Jameer Nelson still cherishes his bond with Orlando, & Magic youngsters are thankful for him: ht.ly/KE60T

John Denton

As well as anyone, @Jameer Nelson knows cyclical nature of @NBA .He was PG & face of @Orlando Magic for 10 yrs. Now, torch passed to @Elfrid Payton

John Denton

Former @Orlando Magic PG @Jameer Nelson wore 1 uni for 10 yrs -- as long as anyone in franchise history. Tonight, he returns in a 3rd diff uni

John Denton

Former @Orlando Magic PG @Jameer Nelson -- now with @Denver Nuggets -- said ovation from soccer fans touched him. Meer:"My heart is still here"

John Denton

Former @Orlando Magic PG @Jameer Nelson said he went to the @OrlandoCitySC game on Sat and his section at Citrus Bowl gave him a standing O.

Josh Robbins

James Borrego said decisions whether Dewayne Dedmon, Tobias Harris & Willie Green will play will be made closer to tipoff.

R.J. Hunter used to question whether playing for his dad was a good decision. Now there’s absolutely no doubt it was: foxs.pt/1HhSt3e

Nikola Vucevic

Fun night @OrlandoCitySC game! Tough loss but good game... Thank you for having us at the game! #GoLions http://t.co/SBEPgAnyEY

Sam Gardner

After the game, Ron Hunter said the plan is to let his injured Achilles sit in the cast for 3 wks after the team returns, then talk surgery.

Sam Gardner

Ron Hunter visibly emotional as he wheels off the court following Georgia State’s loss. He’s an easy guy to like: http://t.co/4Qr5tZfGaM

Sam Gardner

Really sweet moment between RJ and Ron Hunter. Ron subbed out RJ with Xavier at the line up double digits, huge embrace as RJ walked off.

Sam Gardner

Xavier is 13-of-16 from the field in the 2nd half of this game. That’s tough to beat, even when you’re shooting 67%, yourself, which GSU is.

Sam Gardner

Oof, Myles Davis 3 gives Xavier a 10-point lead. Georgia State on the line shooting two with 1:16 to go. 67-57.

Sam Gardner

You’ll never believe this, but the Georgia State fans have disagreed with just about every call the referees have made against their team.

Sam Gardner

Markus Crider fouls out for Georgia State, which trails Xavier 64-55 with 2:24 to go. Panthers are gonna need some more magic.

Sam Gardner

After grabbing 6 boards in the 1st half, Matt Stainbrook doesn’t have a single rebound yet in the 2nd half. He’s been MIA the last 17 min.

Sam Gardner

They have been rowdy and into every second of play since they got here Thursday.

Sam Gardner

Xavier leads 57-53 with 5:05 to go. Georgia St. hasn’t led yet, but if they do ever pull ahead, the Panthers fans behind me might combust.

Sam Gardner

Xavier has made 8 of its last 9 shots, including two huge 3s on back to back possessions and leads by 8 with 7:45 to go.

Aaron Gordon

UH OH... Come on out of that zone!

Sam Gardner

Apparently you really do have to cover R.J. Hunter from everywhere.

Sam Gardner

Xavier led GSU by 11 with 13:41 in 1st half, but GSU has made 6 of last 7 FGs to cut the lead to 19-17 with 7:49 left in half.

Sam Gardner

The man of the hour, Georgia State coach Ron Hunter is on the floor and ready to go: http://t.co/PuU77eD0mc

Sam Gardner

Arkansas escapes Wofford 56-53. Wofford had two decent looks at 3 on its last possession. Three tough games today for big favorites, though.

Dan Savage

You can see why they call it March Madness.

Sam Gardner

Obviously still a long way to go, and I wouldn’t bet on Portis having less than 10 when it’s done, but Wofford's done a nice job on SEC POY.

Sam Gardner

Just two points on 1-of-3 shooting in the 2nd half for Bobby Portis. Only 8 for the game. He’s only been held under 10 twice this season.

Sam Gardner

Michael Qualls is dunking like the rim owes him money.
