Tobias Harris F ORL 10 Days

The Magic are expected to discuss a contract extension with Tobias Harris around Labor Day.

Orlando has until November 1 to negotiate an extension, after which they'll have to wait until the end of the season. Harris' role shrunk last season but he still averaged 14.6 points, 7.0 rebounds and 0.7 steals in 30 minutes per game. The bigger issue is that he missed 21 games, and has missed an average of 24 games per season in his three-year NBA career.

Tobias Harris led the Magic on Sunday with 18 points in 27 minutes off the bench, while adding seven rebounds, two assists and three steals.

Magic coach Jacque Vaughn spread playing time evenly across his 10-man rotation, with no player logging more than Harris' 27 minutes. That meant guys like Doron Lamb, E'Twaun Moore and Ronnie Price all cracked the 20-minute barrier, though none of them did enough to aid fantasy owners.

Tobias Harris excelled off the bench during Saturday's 100-92 win over the Wolves, scoring 17 points with six boards, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.

Coach Jacque Vaughn has used him in spots at small forward this season, but he would much rather use Harris at power forward and do so off the bench. While he's easily the best offensive power forward on the team, the Magic still need to give Kyle O'Quinn his minutes. However, Harris does enough on a per-minute basis to be considered a must-start player until further notice.

Tobias Harris caught fire off the bench in Tuesday's surprise win vs. the Blazers, scoring 25 points and grabbing 11 rebounds with two 3-pointers and one block.

The Magic have a 19-52 record in a clear rebuilding year, but they shocked the West's fifth-seeded team thanks to big games from Harris and Nikola Vucevic (22 & 10). Orlando has one of the league's worst fantasy-playoff schedules and Harris was quiet in his past two games, averaging 9.0 points, so it's nice to see him deliver a gem in just 33 minutes off the bench.

Tobias Harris had his worst game of 2014 against the Jazz on Saturday, making just 1-of-9 from the field for two points with four boards, two assists and one turnover in 16 minutes.

He was on fire against the Suns on Wednesday with 23 points and the law of averages had a say tonight. Harris did not even play in the third quarter and coach Jacque Vaughn may have just wanted to keep the cold guy on the bench. He's been too good to be worried just yet.

Tobias Harris played well off the bench against the Suns on Wednesday, scoring 23 points with nine boards, three assists and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

Nikola Vuecvic getting tossed in the first quarter really opened up some playing time and Harris stepped up. Despite coming off the bench, he's played less than 26 minutes just once since the All-Star break. In those previous 14 games, Harris averaged 17.9 points, 6.2 boards, 1.2 steals, 0.6 blocks and 0.6 triples on 51.7 percent from the field and 88.9 percent from the line. He has to be in all lineups right now.

Tobias Harris hit 5-of-11 shots for 14 points, six rebounds and a 3-pointer in 28 minutes off the Magic bench on Tuesday.

We don't like the fact he's coming off the bench these days, but he's still playing pretty well. Harris is averaging 16.0 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.4 steals over his last five games, despite the bench role.

Tobias Harris scored 21 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 8-of-14 shots with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

Harris needs to keep trending toward three combined steals, blocks and treys to continue along as a mid-round value. The good news is that over the last month he is hitting 52.1 percent of his field goals and a high-volume 88.3 percent from the line to return top 20-35 value (9/8 cat). En fuego.

Tobias Harris had four steals off the bench against the Nuggets on Wednesday with 11 points, three boards, two assists and one block in 19 minutes.

He's come off the bench in his last three games and his minutes dropped from 32 on Saturday to 26 on Monday before tonight. Harris' numbers are noticeably worse off the bench this year, averaging 11.3 points, 6.3 boards and 0.1 triples in his eight previous games as a second-unit guy. That compared to 15.7 points, 7.5 boards and 0.6 triples in his 36 starts. He's still a must-own player in standard leagues for his production in multiple categories.

Tobias Harris scored 11 points on 5-of-10 shooting with eight rebounds and one assist in 26 minutes off the bench on Monday.

Harris was also seen riding a stationary bike for about five minutes before entering the game, which is probably a nod to the ankle injury that decimated the first half of his season. He looked great scoring the ball for a stretch before the Magic lost their way in the fourth quarter, but as usual it's the goose egg that he put up in the steals, blocks and threes category that owners will want to watch. It's been the barometer of his value all year and something he had improved on prior to tonight.
