The Orlando Magic were excited about having a healthy rosters for the first time all season.

On Saturday, veteran big man Glen “Big Baby” Davis returned from his foot injury and on Sunday, promising third-year forward Tobias Harris made his season debut. He has been battling an ankle injury.

The Magic planned to insert both players back into the starting lineup in Tuesday’s game against the Atlanta Hawks.

Instead, only Davis will be starting.

According to John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com, Harris has had a setback in his injured ankle and has been de-activated.


Second-year center Kyle O’Quinn, who has also had an ankle injury, has been activated.

Harris was traded to the Magic from the Milwaukee in a deal involving guard J.J. Redick just before last season’s trade deadline. He averaged 17.3 points and 8.5 rebounds per game for the Magic, leading the team in scoring.
