ORLANDO (AP) -- Magic coach Jacque Vaughn says leading scorer Arron Afflalo is back in the starting lineup for Orlando's matchup with Charlotte.

Afflalo has missed three straight games with strained right foot, but has no limitations as he returns against the Bobcats on Friday night.

Orlando remains without starting center Nik Vucevic, who is missing his sixth consecutive game as he recovers from a concussion. Also out is reserve guard Ronnie Price, who sprained his right foot in practice.
