MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Swingman Arron Afflalo participated fully in the Orlando Magic’s shootaround at the FedEx Forum today, and barring any unforeseen setbacks, he’s on track to make his preseason debut tonight against the Memphis Grizzlies.
“If nothing goes wrong between now and gametime, then we should see him on the court tonght,” Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said.
Vaughn expects to give some players a few additional minutes — maybe five to six minutes more — and wants to try some new combinations of players.
A strained left hamstring prevented Afflalo from playing in Orlando’s first six preseason exhibitions.
He practiced fully with teammates Tuesday and reported no setbacks.
