ORLANDO: LAST SEASON: 42-40, lost 4-1 in first round to Toronto
COACH: Steve Clifford (second season with Magic; seventh season overall, 238-254).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Evan Fournier (15.1 ppg), G D.J. Augustin (11.7), F Aaron Gordon (16.0), F Jonathan Isaac (9.6), C Nikola Vucevic (20.8).
KEY ADDITIONS: F Al-Farouq Aminu, G Markelle Fultz (acquired in February from Philadelphia but didn't play).
PLAYERS TO WATCH: There isn't a lot of mystery to the Magic entering this season, since they bring back basically the same team and will be adding a former No. 1 overall pick in Fultz who has worked for months to fix his shoulder and shooting issues. Vucevic is coming off a season where he set career-bests in points, rebounds and assists per game. When Gordon scored big, the Magic were really good; they went 16-8 in the 24 games where Gordon reached the 20-point mark. Terrence Ross is basically a sixth starter for Orlando, needing only 26.5 minutes per game to average 15.1 points last season in an instant-offense role coming off the bench.
OUTLOOK: The Magic improved by 17 wins last season and reached the playoffs for the first time since 2012, doing all that without the burden of expectation. They won't have that same luxury this year, not after bringing back virtually every part of a team that didn't just get into the playoffs but did so by going 22-9 down the stretch of the regular season. Getting to the foul line more would be a major help, after the Magic ranked last in free throws made and free throws attempted last season. The biggest challenge for Clifford may be finding ways for his team to replicate the same get-into-the-playoffs hunger it had a year ago.
PHILADELPHIA: LAST SEASON: 51-31, lost in Eastern Conference semis
COACH: Brett Brown (seventh season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: C Joel Embiid (27.5 ppg, 13.6 rpg), F Tobias Harris (18.2 ppg), F Al Horford (13.6), G Josh Richardson (16 ppg), G Ben Simmons (16.9 ppg, 7.7 apg).
KEY LOSSES: G JJ Redick, G Jimmy Butler
KEY ADDITIONS: G Josh Richardson, F Al Horford, F Matisse Thybulle
PLAYERS TO WATCH: The 76ers will go as far as Simmons and Embiid will take them. Both All-Stars are locked in for years with long-term deals and enter the season as serious MVP candidates. But if even one goes down with a serious injury, the Sixers will be in trouble. Embiid has never played more than 64 games in a season and the Sixers are serious about trying to limit his workload even more during the regular season to keep him fresh for the playoffs.
OUTLOOK: From tanking to title contention, the Sixers believe they are good enough to win the Eastern Conference, and make a run at an NBA championship. The Sixers were knocked out of the Eastern Conference semifinals for the second straight season but believed signing Horford away from fellow contender Boston can help push them over the top.
Banged-up Sixers, Magic set for bubble battle

The Philadelphia 76ers' hopes of a deep playoff run are in jeopardy.

All-Star Ben Simmons limped to the locker room with a knee injury during Wednesday's win over the Washington Wizards, and the diagnosis is a partially dislocated left kneecap. Simmons will remain out indefinitely.

He won't play when the host Sixers (41-27) look for their third straight victory against the Orlando Magic on Friday at the NBA bubble near Orlando. It's unclear if Simmons will be sidelined for the entire postseason.

Simmons was injured in the third quarter of what turned out to be a 107-98 win over the Wizards. X-rays and a magnetic resonance imaging test both initially came back negative.

"Some of the information is fluid," Sixers head coach Brett Brown said. "It's just that the stuff is still being evaluated."

Joel Embiid carried the Sixers over the Wizards with 30 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocked shots.

"He just grabbed the gym, grabbed the game," Brown said of Embiid. "He's passing out of the double team at a highly efficient rate."

The Sixers have struggled on both ends of the court in the three games despite holding a 2-1 record. They allowed more than 40 points in the fourth quarter in a loss to the Indiana Pacers and then again in a win over the San Antonio Spurs.

Indiana's T.J. Warren exploded for a career-high 53 points.

"We've started the three games very inconsistent," Brown said. "We do some good things offensively, defensively and then you see some head-scratching stuff. ... We're trending in the right direction, just not as quickly as I'd like."

Like the Sixers, the Magic are also dealing with an injury to a key player -- Aaron Gordon.

In Wednesday's 109-99 loss to the defending champion Toronto Raptors, Kyle Lowry committed a hard foul on Gordon, who left the game in the third quarter with left hamstring tightness.

Gordon's injury doesn't appear to be a long-term issue, according to reports, though he's expected to sit out against the Sixers.

"It would be a huge hit for us," Magic head coach Steve Clifford said if the injury keeps Gordon sidelined for awhile.

The team is already without forward Jonathan Isaac after he tore his ACL last week.

Evan Fournier scored 15 points for the Magic, who fell to 32-37 but remain as the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference playoff race, a half-game behind the Brooklyn Nets.

"They're obviously champions," Fournier said of the Raptors. "Fouls are part of basketball. Was (the foul on Gordon) nice? No. But who cares? I mean, it was a foul. It was called flagrant one. There's just not much to say."

Aside from Gordon, the Magic's offense sputtered against Toronto's stifling defense. They managed only 35 points in the first half and trailed by 20. The 35 points were a season low for points in a half.

There's some bright news on the injury front, however, as Michael Carter-Williams (tendon in left foot) is likely to be available.

The Magic are very close to officially clinching a playoff berth. One Magic victory or a loss by the Wizards will seal the playoff spot, as both teams have four games remaining.
