The Orlando Magic know they’ll have to find a way to win without injured center Glen Davis

The Utah Jazz can only hope point guard Mo Williams’ injury isn’t too serious.

Orlando will try to extend its season-best home winning streak to four on Sunday night when the Jazz go for a fifth consecutive victory in this series and a .500 trip.

Davis is second on the Magic (12-14) with 16.0 points per game and 7.9 rebounds, but he’s expected to be on the shelf for four to six weeks after suffering a sprained left shoulder in the final minute of Wednesday’s 90-83 victory over Washington.

With rookie Andrew Nicholson in Davis’ place, Orlando had its four-game winning streak snapped on Friday, losing 93-90 at Toronto.

“When you are missing one of your leading scorers, that makes it tough,” Arron Afflalo told the Magic’s official website after finishing with a team-best 26 points. “You want to continue to win, but a big part of our successful rhythm came with the guys who were contributing toward that success. You take Glen out of that and it hurts because he’s a key contributor.
