The Orlando Magic and Brooklyn Nets will both find themselves shorthanded Friday night when they square off at Amway Center.

Orlando point guard Jameer Nelson will miss his fourth consecutive game as he recovers from a strained right hamstring, reports Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel. John Denton of says the team lists the nine-year veteran as "day-to-day." E`Twaun Moore will continue to start in Nelson's stead. In his three starts, the Purdue product is averaging 14 points, 4.3 rebounds, and four assists per game.

On the Brooklyn side, the Nets have announced that former All-Star forward Gerald Wallace will miss the game as well due to a sprained left ankle. Former Magic player Keith Bogans will get his third consecutive start for Wallace.

A left-ankle injury could sideline another Net as well: MarShon Brooks sustained a sprain in Friday's shootaround, the Nets said, and is a "gametime decision."
