Jameer Nelson injury: Magic point guard to return against Clippers

Jameer Nelson - USA TODAY Sports

Nelson missed the Magic's last two-plus games with a sore arm.

The Orlando Magic will have Jameer Nelson back in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers, coach Jacque Vaughn said before tipoff.

"I think he's gonna go for us tonight," Vaughn said. "So that's needed help for us and [it's] good to see him back on the floor."

Nelson injured his right arm against the Boston Celtics on Friday and missed the second half of that game, as well as Saturday's loss to the Milwaukee Bucks and Monday's loss against the Philadelphia 76ers. The one-time All-Star is averaging 15.3 points, four rebounds, and 7.4 assists for Orlando in 2012/13.

Vaughn didn't have an update on DeQuan Jones, the reserve swingman who missed Monday's game due to a foot injury.

"[We're] still evaluating DJ," Vaughn said. After this [media availability session] I'll go talk and see where we're at. He went through shootaround and we'll see how he responds, but hopefully he'll be available."
