(AP) — Glen Davis delivered a big effort in Orlando’s last game, but the Magic know they can’t replace center Dwight Howard in the post. The Magic could soon find out what impact Ryan Anderson’s absence will have on their perimeter shooting.

With Howard and Anderson questionable due to injuries, Orlando will try to avoid a season high-tying fourth consecutive loss Tuesday night when they visit the Detroit Pistons.

Since drafting Howard first overall in 2004, the Magic (32-21) have been without their superstar center just eight times – four of which were due to injury. Sunday’s 104-101 home loss to Denver did little to boost Orlando’s confidence that it can win without Howard, who was dealing with back spasms and missed his first game of the season.
