Orlando Magic point guard Jameer Nelson left his team's game against the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday due to a sprained left foot. He will not return to the game, the team said.

Nelson sustained the injury after driving the lane and passing to Nik Vučević for a dunk. The Magic intentionally fouled to get Nelson off the floor at the 7:27 mark of the second period.

Nelson shot 1-of-5 Wednesday for three points, adding four assists and a steal. He played 12 minutes. E`Twaun Moore started the second half in his stead.

Not counting Wednesday's game, Nelson is averaging 12.3 points and 6.3 assists in the 2013/14 season.
