Jameer Nelson injury: Magic veteran to miss Sunday's game against L.A., according to report

Jameer Nelson

The veteran point guard will miss his third consecutive game.

Orlando Magic point guard Jameer Nelson will not play Sunday against the Los Angeles Lakers, reports Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel, marking the third straight game the Magic's all-time assist leader will have missed due to a sore left knee.

Nelson has averaged 12.2 points, 3.4 boards, and 6.9 assists in his 61 appearances. In the Magic's previous game against the Lakers, a 114-105 victory, Nelson scored 22 points on 7-of-11 shooting in one of his finest performances of the 2013/14 season, so Orlando may miss him against L.A.

Victor Oladipo will once again start for Nelson. Saturday against the Utah Jazz, Oladipo scored a team-high 19 points on 5-of-14 shooting to go with six rebounds and four assists.
