Schmitz: Banged-Up Turkoglu and Nelson Both Day-to-Day

New, comment

From Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel (via my mom, who is a saint):

Orlando Magic forward Hedo Turkoglu was diagnosed Wednesday with a sprained right wrist and is listed as day-to-day, much to the relief of the playoff-bound team.

Point guard Jameer Nelson also is listed as day-to-day after leaving Tuesday night's game against San Antonio in the first quarter after being struck in the jaw by teammate Dwight Howard.

Turkoglu sustained his injury in a fall late in the first quarter against the Spurs, and left early in the second period.

WHEW!

Schmitz mentions that Keith Bogans and Carlos Arroyo would likely start for Turkoglu and Nelson, respectively, "if" they are unavailable Friday in Milwaukee. The key word there is "if." The fact that neither player is certain to miss that game is encouraging.
