Arron Afflalo returned to the floor Friday night, starting for the Orlando Magic in their game against the Cleveland Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena. Afflalo hadn't played since he strained his left calf Jan. 27 and spent the previous two games away from the team as he dealt with a personal matter in Southern California. But Afflalo hopes he made an impact when he wasn't playing. During that time, he encouraged rookie small forward Maurice Harkless to be more assertive. In the six games Afflalo didn't play, Harkless' shot attempts per 48 minutes rose to 13.9 from 10.6 before that.
