Kobe Bryant is a gametime decision after severely spraining his ankle in Saturday’s game in Dallas.

–Yesterday’s win over the Suns took on something of a familial tone as the Magic were able to lock down on defense in the second half and easily defeat the Steve Nash-less Suns.

–Grant Hill, who suffered a sports hernia in his penultimate season with the Magic, told JJ Redick to make sure he is healthy before returning from his abdominal injury, Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel reports. 

–It appears as though Dwight Howard and Marcin Gortat did not speak to each other at all during yesterday’s reunion game in Phoenix. 

Jeff Van Gundy went to bat a bti for his brother and the Magic during yesterday’s telecast.

Florida’s SEC Championship Game loss to Kentucky drew a higher local rating than the Magic’s blowout win over the Suns, Hal Boedeker of the Orlando Sentinel reports. 

–Good news! Dwight Howard can still dunk the ball… hard.
