Orlando Magic rookie Devyn Marble has a detached retina in his left eye, team officials announced Wednesday. Marble said he'll undergo surgery early next week. He likely will miss four to six weeks, team officials said, which almost certainly will mean he will not play again this season. Marble said his vision has been blurry for "at least a month." "It might be even more," he said before his teammates hosted the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night at Amway Center. "I remember that stretch I was playing a lot. It was happening then, and then it kind of got worse." Marble doesn't recall a specific example in which he suffered a blow to the head. When his eyesight deteriorated, he initially thought he needed new contact lenses. On Tuesday, however, two doctors determined he has a detached retina. Multiple NBA players have had surgery to repair detached retinas. One of them is former Magic power forward Jason Maxiell, who underwent surgery in the spring of 2013 as a member of the Detroit Pistons and has been healthy since.
