(AP) — The struggling Orlando Magic expect one of the two starters injured in their first contest to return for the opener of a three-game trip.

It appears the other will be sidelined longer than originally believed.

Mired in a five-game losing streak, the Magic hope Jameer Nelson’s return can provide a spark Friday night against a Detroit Pistons team looking to build on its first win.

The season got off to an inauspicious start for Orlando (2-5), as Nelson strained both his groin and hamstring and Hedo Turkoglu broke his left hand in the opener.
