1) Hedo Turkoglu will miss today's game and appears to be out indefinitely as he tries to get his hand healthy and get his conditioning back, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
2) There are a combination of factors that have led to the Magic's losing streak -- some just pure luck, others part of the team's makeup -- Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel writes.
3) J.J. Redick tells John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com that he is unaware of whether the Magic are shopping him in the trade market but that he understands what might come in the near future (h/t Evan Dunlap of Orlando Pinstriped Post).
4) Nate Drexler of MagicBasketball.net suggests Andrew Nicholson's limited minutes might be part of a covert tanking plan for the Magic to get better draft position... or that could just be a conspiracy theory (I happen to agree, it might be).
5) Former Magic guard Chucky Atkins is back in Orlando coaching at his alma mater, Evans High School, and learning just how difficult it is to be a coach at any level, Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel writes.
6) The Magic spent part of their practice at UCLA, Arron Afflalo's old stomping grounds. There was little fan fare.
