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.
