A familiar face could return to the floor for Tuesday’s matchup between the Trail Blazers and Magic. According to The Athletic’s Josh Robbins, Magic forward Al-Farouq Aminu could make his 2020-21 regular season debut against his former team.

Aminu has underwent a series of knee surgeries that have prevented him from participating in a game since November of 2019. Aminu, who signed with the Magic in the summer of 2019, is in the second year of a three-year contract with Orlando (the final year is a player option).

Prior to signing with the Magic, Aminu was a fixture inside the Blazers’ starting lineup. During his four-year stint in Portland, Aminu averaged 9.5 points and 7.1 rebounds per game.
