Magic's Al-Farouq Aminu suffers setback in knee recovery

Orlando Magic forward Al-Farouq Aminu suffered a setback in his recovery from a knee injury and will be reevaluated, according to coach Steve Clifford.

Aminu, who has a torn meniscus in his right knee but opted against surgery, has been sidelined since late November.

Clifford told reporters Friday that Aminu's knee locked up during Thursday's practice and that the veteran forward is having trouble bending it.

Clifford also announced that center Mo Bamba will not play Friday against the Philadelphia 76ers after turning his ankle Thursday at practice. Bamba's status is uncertain for Saturday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks, according to Clifford.

Aminu, 29, is averaging 4.3 points and 4.8 rebounds in 18 games this season, his first with Orlando.
