Orlando Magic starting guard Gary Harris is available to play Sunday in the decisive Game 7 of the Eastern Conference first round against the host Cleveland Cavaliers, coach Jamahl Mosley said.

Harris sat out Orlando’s 103-96 win over Cleveland in Game 6 on Friday because of a right hamstring strain. He suffered the injury during the Magic’s 104-103 loss to the Cavaliers in Game 5 on Tuesday.

Harris, 29, is averaging 3.8 points and 2.0 rebounds in five games during the series.

Like Harris, Cleveland All-Star center Jarrett Allen was listed as questionable on the NBA injury report. However, Allen was ruled out about 30 minutes before tip-off.

Allen, 26, sat out the past two games due to a rib bruise. He averaged 17.0 points and 13.8 rebounds in the first four games of the series.

The winner of Sunday’s game will face the top-seeded Boston Celtics in the conference semifinals.
