Jameer Nelson injury: Magic point guard sprains left foot against 76ers

Jameer Nelson - Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

The veteran point guard sustained the injury in the first half and will not return.

Orlando Magic point guard Jameer Nelson left his team's game against the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday due to a sprained left foot. He will not return to the game, the team said.

Nelson sustained the injury after driving the lane and passing to Nik Vučević for a dunk. The Magic intentionally fouled to get Nelson off the floor at the 7:27 mark of the second period.

Nelson shot 1-of-5 Wednesday for three points, adding four assists and a steal. He played 12 minutes. E`Twaun Moore started the second half in his stead.

Not counting Wednesday's game, Nelson is averaging 12.3 points and 6.3 assists in the 2013/14 season.
