Robbins: Mickael Pietrus Out, Jameer Nelson a Game-Time Decision versus Milwaukee

New, comments

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel filed this report after the Orlando Magic's shootaround today. The big news is that the Magic won't have backup small forward Mickael Pietrus available tonight against the Milwaukee Bucks due to a sprained right ankle suffered in Sunday's win against Detroit. Starting point guard Jameer Nelson, who hyperextended his surgically repaired left knee in the same game, will be a game-time decision. If Nelson can't go, I imagine we'll see Jason Williams run the point with the starting unit, with Anthony Johnson leading the reserves.

Also of note in that report: former New Jersey Nets head coach Lawrence Frank is with the team this week as a guest of coach Stan Van Gundy's. Frank coached Magic guard Vince Carter and forward Ryan Anderson during their time with the Nets, but Van Gundy told Robbins that Carter has not been, and will not be, a topic of discussion between the two coaches.
