Jason Richardson Injury: Orlando Magic Guard "Probably Will Not Play" against New York Knicks on Monday

When the Orlando Magic take on the New York Knicks on Monday afternoon, they'll more than likely do so without starting shooting guard Jason Richardson, according to Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel. Richardson, who suffered a bone bruise in his left knee Thursday against the Golden State Warriors, told Schmitz he "probably will not play" in Orlando's matinée against New York.

Following Saturday's practice, Richardson said, "I feel pretty good," but apparently his outlook has changed.

Richardson is averaging 11.1 points per game in his first full season with Orlando, shooting 43.2 percent from the field and 33.3 percent on threes. In his likely absence, J.J. Redick figures to start, with Von Wafer and Quentin Richardson seeing backup minutes at the wing positions.

Jason Richardson averaged 13.3 points per game in four contests against New York in the 2010/11 campaign, including a 24-point performance on March 28th.
