Watson (calf) is able to do spot shooting but still hasn't been cleared to run, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports. Watson has been without a timetable for a return while dealing with soreness in his left calf, and his updated status still suggests there's no concrete timeline for a return to live action. The veteran averaged 19 minutes in the first eight games of the season before sustaining the injury but his eventual comeback will likely come with a minutes restriction.
Watson (calf) remains without a timetable for a return. The Magic have insisted all along that Watson is only dealing with a sore calf rather than a more severe injury to his leg, but the ailment has still managed to keep him on the sideline since mid-November. His return doesn't appear imminent, giving Shabazz Napier plenty of security in his role as the Magic's backup point guard.
Watson's (calf) return to game action doesn't appear imminent, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports. Watson will sit out a 21st consecutive game Wednesday against the Rockets due to a left calf injury that has been far more persistent than the Magic initially anticipated. The veteran point guard experienced swelling on his left knee after he was cleared to increase his activity earlier this month, and it appears that setback has put his return date in flux. Watson said the swelling has since subsided a bit, but he continues to feel pain in the upper area of the calf and near the back of the knee. With the 31-year-old out indefinitely, the Magic will continue to use Shabazz Napier and Victor Oladipo to initiate offense for the second unit.
Watson (calf) remains out for Friday's game against Portland, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports. The Magic have not provided much in the way of updates on Watson, but he's still dealing with pain in his left calf, and Friday will mark his 18th straight absence. Continue to consider Watson out indefinitely until Orlando says otherwise.
Watson (calf) will not play Friday against Cleveland, Joshua Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports. Watson has been sidelined for over a month due to a calf injury, and though he'll sit out Friday, Robbins reports that the veteran guard has been ramping up his activity in practice. He'll likely remain out until the team decides that he is game-ready from a conditioning standpoint, but it appears that he is inching closer to a return.
