Magic injury update

Here are excerpts from Brian Schmitz's BasketBlog on orlandosentinel.com today:

Ryan Anderson wore a boot on his right foot today and said an MRI this morning showed his injury isn't especially serious -- no tear or break.

"I guess it's the best possible situation for what happened," Anderson said.

But it will keep Anderson out of some games. Magic Coach Stan Van Gundy also said Vince Carter was doubtful for Sunday's game. That means between the suspension (SF Rashard Lewis) and injuries (PF Anderson, SG Vince Carter, C Adonal Foyle) the Magic will have nine available players tomorrow night in Oklahoma City.

"It's sore and it's swollen," Anderson said. "It's pretty painful but I guess as the swelling goes down my pain will go to a central area. Hopefully it's not too bad, but I guess I sprained it in a pretty good spot."

Anderson said he wasn't told how long he would be out, that would depend on how fast his body healed. He also wasn't entirely sure how he sprained it early in the third quarter of Orlando's 110-103 win over the Detroit Pistons, but said he passed the ball and cut, then must have stepped on someone's foot.

Van Gundy said he would be shocked if Anderson recovered within a week.

    My guess is that Anderson will probably be out between 10-14 days.

    That's too bad; Anderson had been playing very well, with only 1 bad game of the first 6 the Magic have played.

    Talk about lineup turnover because of all the injuries and Lewis's suspension; in addition to Lewis, Vince Carter has missed games, Mickael Pietrus has missed games, and now Anderson. Subs Anthony Johnson and Adonal Foyle have also missed games.

    Can't wait until about a month from now when all the Magic players are healthy and ready to go.
