Jameer Nelson still "day-to-day" with ankle sprain, according to report

Jameer Nelson - Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Magic point guard, who has missed Orlando's last five games due to a sprained ankle, could still return for the final games of the 2012/13 season.

Jameer Nelson has missed the Orlando Magic's last five games after spraining his right ankle against the Washington Wizards on March 29th. The veteran point guard could return for the final four games of Orlando's season, but there's a chance he'll sit out for good, reports Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel.

Magic coach Jacque Vaughn described Nelson as "day-to-day for us" following Sunday's loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. "I don't have a timetable," he said of Nelson's possible return to the lineup.

Beno Udrih, acquired from the Milwaukee Bucks on February 21st, has started at point guard in Nelson's stead. The Slovenian is averaging 18.2 points, four rebounds, and 7.8 assists in those games, shooting 45.2 percent from the floor and 52.6 percent on three-pointers.

A variety of injuries has limited Nelson to 56 appearances in 2012/13. The St. Joseph's product is averaging 14.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 7.4 assists on 39.2 percent shooting from the field. His average of 35.3 minutes per game is the highest of his career, now in its ninth season.
