The Orlando Magic have announced their starting backcourt for tonight's game against the Atlanta Hawks. Jameer Nelson will sit out due to a sprained left ankle, but Vince Carter's strained right hip flexor won't keep him out of action. Chris Duhon will start in Nelson's place.

According to Antonio Gonzalez of the Associated Press, Rashard Lewis, Ryan Anderson, and Dwight Howard will round out the Magic's starting five at small forward, power forward, and center, respectively.

Tonight's lineup will be the fourth different one coach Stan Van Gundy has used this season. Notably, Anderson will start despite not playing in the Magic's last six quarters of action.
