Tobias Harris F ORL 6 Days

Harris (general soreness) will not play in Saturday's preseason game against Philadelphia.

Harris took a spill in Wednesday's exhibition and is dealing with some soreness as a result, but it sounds like he's being held out Saturday strictly for precautionary reasons. Aaron Gordon may get the start in his place, but Harris, who is shooting better than 57 percent so far in the preseason, figures to return for the team's next contest against Houston.

Harris recorded a team-high 22 points (10-16 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), nine rebounds, and one steal in 33 minutes during Friday's preseason victory.

Harris scored 11 of his 22 points in the first quarter and has converted 31-of-54 shot in five preseason games. He looks much healthier and fit, allowing him to play either forward spot, a necessity once Channing Frye returns from a sprained left MCL.

Harris scored a team-high 16 points (5-10 FG, 6-6 FT), grabbed six rebounds, and dished out four assists in 22 minutes during Friday's preseason game.

Harris continues to display his offensive repertoire given a healthy ankle this time around. He started at power forward, but Channing Frye's absence is seemingly the only reason why. Harris may downshift to small forward once Frye's sprained MCL fully heals.

Harris scored 15 points (6-9 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), grabbed seven rebounds, dished out three assists, and blocked one shot in 22 minutes during the Magic's preseason opener.

Harris started at power forward, likely Channing Frye's role once he returns from a sprained MCL. The 22-year-old showed his capabilities when not dealing with a persistant ankle injury that plagued him throughout last season.

Harris converted body fat into muscle this offseason by amending his eating habits, the Orlando Sentinel reports. He professed, "I feel more explosive. I feel better. I feel real healthy. I've been really conditioning myself for this year to be able to play both sides at a high level, and I'm on pace to do that and really have been working at it."

Harris is still the same weight he played last season, 235 pounds, but feels leaner and better able to defend both forward positions. He was hampered by a high ankle sprain last season, an injury he claims held him to around 75 percent health. With a looming camp battle for the starting small forward spot, Harris needs to show improved defensive acumen in order to wrestle minutes away from noted defensive stalwarts, Maurice Harkless and Aaron Gordon.

Tobias Harris is bulking up this summer in anticipation of playing more minutes at power forward next season.

"It's definitely going to help me a lot," Harris said of the added muscle. "Going into the offseason a focus was on being able to guard those stronger guys. I've put my time in the weight room and I can definitely feel it." Harris shot 46.4 percent from the field last season with nearly half his attempts coming within eight feet of the hoop, and his aggressive style should benefit from his offseason strength-training regimen.

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.
