Orlando Magic Injuries: Jason Richardson Out; Hedo Turkoglu, Quentin Richardson, Earl Clark Questionable for New Jersey Nets Game, According to Report

The Orlando Magic will be without Jason Richardson for the third consecutive game Wednesday night against the New Jersey Nets as the starting shooting guard continues to recover from lung inflammation, reports Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel.

But Richardson might not be the only Magic starter to miss the game, as small forward Hedo Turkoglu came down with an illness and did not attend the morning's shootaround. Reserve forward Earl Clark, too, is ill and might not be available.

Further complicating coach Stan Van Gundy's rotation is that Quentin Richardson might not play either. Ordinarily, Richardson could start in Turkoglu's place, but he bruised his left quadriceps muscle Monday against the Milwaukee Bucks and had to leave the game immediately. Though Robbins says Richardson is "limping noticeably," he "will try to play".

If both Richardsons and Turkoglu are out, Orlando would have no natural small forwards available against New Jersey; its only wings would be J.J. Redick, Von Wafer, and rookie DeAndre Liggins. Liggins made his NBA debut Monday, recording three points and two rebounds in 10 minutes.
