The Orlando Magic's thin wing rotation got even thinner during Monday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks as backup swingman Quentin Richardson bruised his left quadriceps muscle and had to leave the game for good.

Richardson appeared to suffer the injury trying to contest a dunk by Milwaukee power forward Larry Sanders. He limped off the court under his own power and was immediately attended to by head athletic trainer Keon Weise. He had tallied one assist and missed both of his shot attempts in four minutes prior to checking out.

Entering Monday's game, Richardson was averaging 3.5 points in 17 minutes per game for Orlando, making 23 of his 24 appearances off the bench.

The Magic were already without starting shooting guard Jason Richardson due to lung inflammation, forcing J.J. Redick into the starting lineup. With both Richardsons sidelined, the Magic are left with Redick, Hedo Turkoglu, Von Wafer, and rookie DeAndre Liggins at the wing positions.
