The Pacers have some big injury issues as they dip into Orlando to face the Magic.

NBA: Orlando Magic at Indiana Pacers Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers forge on through the regular season without Victor Oladipo on Friday night when they visit the Orlando Magic.

To matters worse, Domas Sabonis is under the weather and may not play, as well. Missing two important, if not the two most important, players should give the Magic more than just home court advantage. All good things must come to an end, and the Pacers are riding a seven-game winning streak against the Magic. Could this be the night the streak ends?

While the Pacers have made hay against the Magic of late, they will encounter a much improved team this time around. Lead by a surging season from center Nikola Vucevic, the Magic are just one game under .500 and currently sit in seventh place in the East.
