Bullets tonight

November 01, 1996

Opponent: Orlando Magic

Site: Orlando Arena, Orlando, Fla.

TV/Radio: WBDC (Ch. 50)/WWRC (980 AM)

Outlook: The start of the 1996-97 season will likely see both teams without key players. The Bullets placed C Gheorghe Muresan (hip flexor) on the injured list yesterday, while the Magic may be without G Anfernee Hardaway (tendinitis, left knee). Bullets backup C Lorenzo Williams (sore knee) did not travel, leaving Chris Webber as the likely starting center. Both teams enter the season having undergone tremendous change. The Bullets improved with the addition of G Rod Strickland, while the Magic faces somewhat of a rebuilding year with the loss of C Shaquille O'Neal. C Felton Spencer will replace O'Neal.
