Magic at Wizards: Jameer Nelson will play despite "sinus issue," according to report

Jameer Nelson - David Manning-USA TODAY Sports

The veteran point guard leads Orlando in assists per game.

Despite his "sinus issue," the Orlando Magic will have starting point guard Jameer Nelson available for Wednesday's game against the Washington Wizards, reports Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel.

Nelson owns per-game averages of 12.5 points and a team-best 6.7 assists on 39.6 percent shooting. He passed Shaquille O`Neal for fourth place on Orlando's all-time scoring list Sunday, just more than a year after surpassing Scott Skiles for the franchise's all-time assists mark.

Nelson avoided joining Arron Afflalo among the Magic players sidelined for Wednesday's game. The team's leading scorer sprained his right ankle Friday against the New York Knicks and will miss an indefinite number of games.

Tipoff between Orlando and Washington is set for 7 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida and ESPN 580 AM.
