Von Wafer "is Maybe the Best Individual Scorer" on Orlando Magic "Perimeter," Stan Van Gundy Says

Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy explained to reporters Friday why high-scoring reserve guard Von Wafer has fallen out of his rotation, even going to the inactive list for some games despite having a clean bill of health. Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports:

"It's not a problem on his part," Van Gundy said, referring to Wafer. "I just don't have him in my rotation ahead of those guys [starters Jason Richardson and Hedo Turkoglu, reserves J.J. Redick and Quentin Richardson]. I think those guys are more experienced guys. I think those guys make fewer mistakes at both ends."

Van Gundy went on to say Wafer "is maybe the best individual scorer we have on the perimeter," and that he would consider playing Wafer more minutes "if games like Chicago become a habit." Van Gundy is referring to Orlando's 85-59 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Monday, wherein the team struggled mightily to put points on the board.

Wafer is the Magic's third-leading scorer on a per-minute basis, trailing only Dwight Howard and Ryan Anderson.
