Orlando Magic call off 2nd straight practice due to Hurricane Ian

Orlando's training camp schedule is being disrupted by Hurricane Ian.

The Magic could not practice on Wednesday because the storm was looming, and called off their practice on Thursday as well because Ian was forecast to seriously affect the Orlando area with its rain and wind.

Hurricane Ian, one of the most powerful storms ever recorded in the U.S., made landfall in southwest Florida on Wednesday afternoon, bringing massive amounts of rain -- more than a foot in some cases -- and knocking out power to 1.8 million people.

The Magic opened camp Tuesday and haven't been able to practice since. The plan calls for them to return to practice Friday, three days before their still scheduled preseason opener at Memphis on Monday.
