Tobias Harris F ORL 3 Days
Tobias Harris (ankle) has rejoined the Magic to restart the rehabbing process on his high ankle sprain.
While there is still no official timetable for Harris' return, early reports indicated that Harris would undergo a 7-10 rehab, so the clock theoretically starts ticking now. The third-year forward is a good stash for owners who have a bench spot as he can be a fantasy difference maker when healthy. Glen Davis and Andrew Nicholson will continue to see a bump in their minutes while Harris remains out.

Tobias Harris (ankle) received a second opinion that confirmed his high ankle sprain.
Harris' return from this injury will be entirely dependent on how it responds to treatment, so it will unfortunately be another waiting game for his owners. The 21-year-old has only played one game in what was supposed to be his breakout season, but is still worth holding on to in most leagues due to his potential. In the meantime, Glen Davis and Andrew Nicholson should continue to benefit from Harris' absence.

Tobias Harris (ankle) will not play against the Wizards on Monday.
He is out indefinitely and is not even with the team for their road game. There is a chance he can join them in New York City, but it doesn't sound like he'll be ready to play in that Friday game. That also makes him basically out for Tuesday's game against the Sixers. Glen Davis should continue to start while Andrew Nicholson will be the first big man off the bench.

Tobias Harris (high ankle sprain) could join the Magic at some point during their upcoming six-game road trip.
The trip begins Monday at Washington and ends on Dec. 11 at Charlotte. It's unclear whether Harris will merely join the team or actually rejoin the lineup after his recent setback. Fantasy owners should prepare for the worst, considering the nature of the injury and Orlando's reluctance to play him at less than 100 percent.

Magic GM Rob Hennigan said Tobias Harris (ankle) is getting a second opinion on his high ankle sprain.
"He went for a second opinion. High ankle sprains take time and everybody's healing timeline is different," said Hennigan. The Magic are in no rush to bring Harris back on the court before he is ready. We should have a clearer timetable following the results of his next examination and we will give that information when it becomes available.

Tobias Harris (ankle) will not play against the Spurs on Friday.
He is out indefinitely and the Magic are likely going to be extremely cautious in bringing him back. Harris has played a grand total of 16 minutes due to his high-ankle sprain and he's likely going to miss Monday's game against the Wizards. Glen Davis will likely start while Andrew Nicholson provides some depth off the bench.

Tobias Harris (ankle) will not play against the Sixers on Wednesday night.
He was a late scratch for Tuesday night's game with a sore ankle and this news is not surprising. The Magic will host the Spurs on Friday night and Harris should be considered questionable. Glen Davis made his first start of the season on Tuesday while Andrew Nicholson was an important part of the bench, scoring 18 points in a win over Atlanta. Both should have above-average games against a weaker Philly interior defense.

Tobias Harris was slated to start for the Magic on Tuesday, but he unexpectedly ruled himself out after feeling soreness in his ankle before the game.
This is a brutal reversal of fortunes for fantasy owners, as Harris went from being a starting SF to a DNP in the course of 20 minutes. He missed five weeks with his sprained ankle before returning and we can only hope that this is a minor setback and his absence is precautionary. Stay tuned for updates.

Glen Davis and Tobias Harris will start Tuesday's game alongside Jameer Nelson, Arron Afflalo and Nikola Vucevic.
Victor Oladipo and Moe Harkless head to the bench as coach Jacque Vaughn wasted no time getting his injured forwards back into the lineup upon their return. Harris should already be owned in all leagues, while Davis makes a decent speculative add in case he hangs onto the PF job.

Tobias Harris said on Monday that he "loves" playing with Glen Davis.
"He's a great teammate and he brings a lot of energy," Harris said. "He wants to win more than anybody on our team. So, just to be out there with him is going to help my game, and I'm going to help his game also." Interestingly, the two were on the court together for all of Harris' 16 minutes in Sunday's game. The most common lineup was a front court of Harris, Davis and Andrew Nicholson at power forward. Harris and Davis also joined Nikola Vucevic in the front court for about 3.5 minutes, as well. They played a close game on Sunday, and the Magic will be an interesting rotation to watch with all of their players back. Harris should be owned across the board, but don't expect him to be as good as he was last year with the Magic.
