TV: League Pass

  • J.J. Redick, who missed the Magic’s last three games with a sore right shoulder, is likely to play. If he does he will probably start at shooting guard, moving Arron Afflalo up to small forward.
  • Blazers guard Ronnie Price, who has missed four games with a right ankle injury, is listed as questionable, as is forward Sasha Pavlovic, who has been out five games with a left foot injury.
  • Redick hit six 3-pointers and scored 29 points in an overtime loss at Portland on Jan. 7. Since then the Magic have lost 14 of 16, including their last 12 in a row, and the Blazers are 6-10.
  • BLAZERS LINEUP: Nicolas Batum, LaMarcus Aldridge, JJ Hickson, Wesley Matthews, Damian Lillard.
  • MAGIC LINEUP: Maurice Harkless, Andrew Nicholson, Nikola Vucevic, Afflalo, Jameer Nelson.
