The Orlando Magic will likely have Jameer Nelson available for their game Wednesday against the Detroit Pistons, reports Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel. Owing to a sore left knee which forced him to leave Friday's win against the Milwaukee Bucks after just one quarter, the 10th-year point guard sat out Orlando's losses to the Boston Celtics and Indiana Pacers on Sunday and Monday.

Nelson is averaging 13.4 points and 6.6 assists for Orlando on 53.8 percent True Shooting. In his brief absence, the rookie Victor Oladipo started at point guard and posted averages of nine points, four rebounds, and eight assists, but he shot just 18.5 percent from the field.

Tipoff between Orlando and Detroit is set for 7 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida.
