Glen Davis' and E'Twaun Moore's status for tonight is unclear

WASHINGTON — It's unclear whether Glen Davis and E'Twaun Moore will return from injuries to face the Washington Wizards tonight. 

"We're still on what I call a 'we'll-see basis,' " Orlando Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said after his team finished its shootaround at Verizon Center a short while ago.

"I'll talk to them on the way back, probably on the bus," Vaughn said. "We'll see tonight."

Davis, who dislocated his shoulder Dec. 19 against the Wizards, joined the Magic for the final game of their four-game road trip and did some limited work in practice Sunday.

But that doesn't mean he'll play tonight.

For example, Hedo Turkoglu went on the team's road trip to Washington for its game on Dec. 28, but he didn't make his return from a broken left hand until the next night, when the Magic hosted the Toronto Raptors.

Moore injured his left elbow Dec. 28 against the Wizards and hasn't played in a game since then, but he practiced Sunday.

Davis suffered his injury six days before Christmas, late in the Magic's 90-83 win over the Wizards.

With 47.8 seconds left, Davis went up for a shot, and Washington's Emeka Okafor slapped downward, hitting Davis' left forearm.

It was a clean foul.

"It just catched his shoulder at an awkward angle," Okafor said prior to the Wizards' shootaround this morning, when asked about the play.

"I know Glen. He knows me. He knows that it was just a basketball play. Nothing was meant on purpose. It wasn't a malicious play at all. I don't think the contact was even that hard. It was just the angle."
