Jameer Nelson injury: Magic veteran to miss Saturday's game against Utah, according to report

Jameer Nelson

The Magic point guard will miss his second consecutive game Saturday when his club takes on the Jazz.

The Orlando Magic will not have Jameer Nelson available Saturday when they take on the Utah Jazz, reports John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com. A sore left knee will sideline the veteran point guard for the second straight game.

In 61 appearances, all starts, Nelson has averaged 12.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 6.9 assists on 51.7 percent True Shooting.

Victor Oladipo will start in Nelson's place once again. In that role Wednesday against the Phoenix Suns, the rookie struggled in a major way, shooting 6-of-14 from the floor with six turnovers against his nine assists.

In the Magic's previous matchup against Utah, Oladipo started alongside Nelson in the backcourt and scored three points on 1-of-12 shooting. The Jazz won by an 86-82 final.
