Jameer Nelson to sit against Knicks

Jameer Nelson will miss his sixth straight game due to a right hamstring strain, Orlando Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said before Tuesday's tipoff against the undefeated New York Knicks. "If you talk to (Nelson) he'd say he could play tonight," Vaughn said, according to John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com. "But you're talking to me."

Orlando initially labeled Nelson a game-time decision for Tuesday's contest.

Nelson played 35 minutes in Orlando's season-opening victory against the Denver Nuggets, but has not played since. Orlando is 1-5 with second-year man E`Twaun Moore starting at the point, though Moore has exceeded expectations in Nelson's place. A scrap-heap free-agent signing of Orlando's Moore is averaging 13.5 points, four rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game while manning both guard positions.

Orlando won't play again until Friday, giving the nine-year veteran Nelson an additional two days to recover from the injury.

Jameer Nelson on injury: "I'm making progress"

Orlando Magic point guard Jameer Nelson has played in just one of his team's three games so far due to a hamstring strain, but Nelson said Tuesday that he's "making progress" as he tries to return from the injury.

"I'm making progress, just getting treatment and drinking lots and lots of water," Nelson said, according to John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com "I don’t want to set a timetable (on a return), but I’m just going to continue to treat it, be smart about it and listen to the training staff."

Nelson is unlikely to play in Wednesday's contest against the Minnesota Timberwolves, giving E'Twaun Moore his third consecutive start at point guard. Moore, a second-year player, has averaged 16 points, four rebounds, and four assists as a starter, shooting 54.2 percent from the field and a sizzling 85.7 percent on three-pointers.
