Orlando Magic guard Gary Harris has missed the start of the 2022-23 NBA season while recovering from offseason knee surgery. But Harris says he's "getting close" to returning for the Magic.

Harris underwent surgery on August 31 after tearing his left meniscus. Orlando said Harris would be sidelined indefinitely, but he's started to ramp up his workouts recently.

“I’m moving around a little bit right now,” Harris said. “I’m really trying to get my timing back. Get back in basketball shape. I’m testing stuff out each day. I get more comfortable around the court.”
Orlando has been without several guards in the early part of this season. Injuries have hit Harris, Cole Anthony, Markelle Fultz and Jalen Suggs. Those absences have led to the Magic playing jumbo-sized lineups where rookie Paolo Banchero and second-year forward Franz Wagner handle most of the playmaking duties.
