Jameer Nelson

Orlando's point guard will miss his fourth straight game due to a sore knee.

Veteran point guard Jameer Nelson will miss his fourth straight game Tuesday when his Orlando Magic face the Portland Trail Blazers at Amway Center, reports Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel. Nelson has a sore left knee.

The Magic's all-time assists leader has averaged 12.2 points, 3.4 boards, and 6.9 assists in his 61 appearances in the 2013/14 season. On January 8th, he shot 6-of-18 from the floor against the Blazers for 17 points and 10 assists as Orlando fell by a 110-94 final.

In the three games Nelson has missed, Victor Oladipo has started at point guard in his place. The rookie is averaging 18 points, 4.7 rebounds, 7.7 assists, two steals, and six turnovers per game in those contests while shooting 39.5 percent from the floor. In Orlando's previous meeting with Portland, the Indiana product started alongside Nelson in the backcourt and posted 14 points on 3-of-8 shooting from the floor and 7-of-8 from the foul line.
