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.
What do you think of the Jameer Nelson injury? Does it affect the Magic’s offense or defense more? How will Oladipo fare at the point? Let us know in the comments section below.
