The Orlando Magic veteran guard DJ Augustin said the Orlando Magic are in great shape, despite the NBA hiatus.

Augustin said the Magic are ahead of the “curve” in regards to working back themselves in shape and getting the “prior-to-hiatus” rhythm.

According to John Denton of

“I think we’re ahead (of where he thought they would be). Just with the way that we’re practicing, it looks like one of our practices before the hiatus,” said Augustin, who has averaged 10.4 points and 4.6 assists in 49 games this season. “Guys look like they’re in good shape and dialed in. We’re all sore because we’ve been practicing and doing a lot of things the last three days, but just as far as us running offense and stuff, everybody looks to be on track and in that same rhythm that we had before the season ended. So, I’m excited about that as well.”

The Orlando Magic are heading to the NBA restart on a 30-35 record, 0.5 games behind the 7th seed and 5.5 games ahead of the Washington Wizards.
