Jameer Nelson Injury: Sore Left Knee

Jameer Nelson left Friday night’s victory over the Milwakee Bucks in the first half with a sore left knee. He did not return to the game and Doron Lamb started in his place to start the second half.

Nelson had a quiet game with 2 points, 3 assists, and one rebound in 12 minutes. His season averages are 13.7 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 6.7 assists per game on 40.5%  shooting from the floor and 37.4% shooting from three.

Doron Lamb managed 8 points, 3 rebounds, and one assists and went a perfect 3-3 from the field. Any extended Nelson absence figures to have Victor Oladipo playing more point guard, and Tobias Harris moving back into the starting line-up.
