Via the Orlando Sentinel:
BOSTON - After saying Tuesday he would not play, Magic shooting guard Courtney Lee might suit up tonight for Game 2 against the Celtics
It is still likely he will not play six days after undergoing sinus surgery, but the door is ajar, contrary to what he previously indicated.
"He. . . .may dress," Coach Stan Van Gundy said. "But he has done very, very little and he's trying to get used to that mask. I would be very surprised if you see him."
Lee quietly has been building a case to play, working out and shooting while wearing his protective mask late Tuesday. He also plans to head over early to TD Banknorth Garden and move and shoot some more with it on before the game.
Lee couldn't give a straight answer after participating in shootaround Wednesday: Will you dress out tonight?
"Have to see how I feel later on. I don't know yet. Take it one step at a time and see how I feel and make decisions on the fly."
It would be nice to have him as an option, but I wouldn't count on it.
