ORLANDO -- Indiana Pacers center David Harrison is doubtful for tonight's game against Orlando because of a back injury suffered in practice on Thursday.

Harrison, who is averaging 5.3 points and 2.5 rebounds off the bench, missed the team's shootaround on Friday morning.

Backup point guard Travis Diener, who played the past two seasons for Orlando, also is doubtful with a sore left shoulder. He was injured in the shootaround on the morning of the Pacers' game with Phoenix on Tuesday.

Backup forward Shawne Williams missed Friday's shootaround while attending his grandmother's funeral in Memphis, but was expected back in time for the game against the Magic.

Think we'll see Owens tonight? Or just Quis?

The Harrison injury really hurts tonight because he's our best chance to bang with Howard.

I'm scared to see what Howard does to Murphy.

Man, Obrien must run some really rough practices. Seems like most of our injuries this year have come in practices.

The way this team has been the last few seasons, someone would find a way to injure himself by slipping on a banana peel in the desert.

Well, they're not going to get to a higher level by eating cheese fries on those sofas watching video.

I'll take the injuries in practice if the result continues to be the improvement we're seeing.

We'll probably see jermaine start at center tonight. Bad night to lose Harrison. The key to beating Orlando is closing up that lane on Howard. I call atleast 3 defensive 3 second whistles tonight.

I was gonna say the same thing...

...then I began to think just like Gyron that this team has a history of being injury prone. Sometimes, you wonder if a player gets a hang-nail will he suit up or what? :laugh:
