Battie out, Johnson questionable for Thursday's game at Charlotte

According to Brian Schmitz's basketblog, Tony Battie will sit out the Magic's preseason game against the Bobcats on Thursday due to his fractured left ring finger, while reserve point guard Anthony Johnson is questionable because of a scratched left eye he incurred during a recent practice.

Brian Cook will receive a considerable amount of playing time and try to get back in the good graces of Coach Van Gundy after reporting to camp in not good enough shape.

If Johnson cannot play, Mike Wilks will see his first significant playing time of the preseason as Jameer Nelson's backup. Courtney Lee may see some time at the point, also.

Gametime is an early 10:30 AM start in Charlotte, with the recap here later in the afternoon.
