ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Since their arrival, Orlando Magic general manager Rob Hennigan and coach Jacque Vaughn have avoided making too many predictions about their team.

Victor Oladipo back on the court, but when will he return?

The Magic had an open practice Monday at Amway Center. The team went through a light practice as Jacque Vaughn and the team got the fans involved and put on a good show for the estimated 2,000 that appeared and filled the lower bowl.

Magic Interviews After the Open Practice

Three thoughts after Magic’s 95-84 loss to Sixers

The Magic suffered their second preseason loss in Allentown, Pa., 95-84 in a game that probably should have had the Sixers’ owner apologizing for bringing two NBA teams resting many of their “star” players.
