The Orlando Magic got some rough injury news over the weekend, as guard Gary Harris suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee, according to Adrian Wojnarowski. Harris, 27, will go through additional assessment to identify a schedule for a return. The intensity of the tear will go a long method towards identifying simply just how much time Harris will need to miss out on, however with the routine season set to begin in less than 2 months, Harris being required to miss out on a minimum of a few of the season appears like a genuine possibility. 

Harris was at first traded to Orlando from the Denver Nuggets in March of 2021. He signed a brand-new two-year, $26 million handle the Magic in June. Last season, he appeared in 61 video games for Orlando — beginning in 30 of them — and balanced 11.1 points, 2 rebounds, and 1.8 helps in 28.4 minutes per efficiency. 

Obviously, the Magic will hope that Harris does not need to miss out on excessive time as an outcome of the injury. In the meantime, his lack will open more on-court chances for others, which might indicate more minutes for men like Markelle Fultz, Terrence Ross, Jalen Suggs and R.J. Hampton. As a fairly young group, part of the factor that the Magic restored Harris was the veteran existence he supplies, and he can still offer that from the sideline. 

Return schedules from meniscus tears can differ quite extensively, so it is difficult to hypothesize simply the length of time the Magic might be without Harris’s services. More details must be readily available after Harris has actually gone through even more assessment in the coming weeks.
