So to recap Magic injuries: Dwight is in, but not 100%. Jameer is uncertain and a game-time decision. Ryan Anderson out.
Ian O'Connor:Stan Van Gundy just acknowledged that Dwight Howard has asked that he be fired.
Howard comes in hugs Stan and doesn't realize Stan just confirmed story
Absolutely surreal: Dwight comes out and denies reports that he wants SVG fired, though SVG himself just said it on record moments earlierAl Iannazzone:
Stan Van Gundy may not be coaching tonight's game after all this. Howard had no idea what SVG said. It was wild.Wow. So, let me recap as cleanly as possible. Jameer Nelson is a gametime decision, Ryan Anderson is out, Dwight Howard will likely play but isn't 100%, and he wants Stan Van Gundy fired and Stan Van Gundy knows it, while Howard just tried to deny. Seems like that last bit could create a riff in the locker room....
