Orlando’s Nelson Won’t Face Sixers

An Orlando Magic official confirmed earlier reports that point guard Jameer Nelson of St. Joseph’s University and Chester High won’t play against the Sixers.

Nelson, who also didn’t play in Sunday’s home game against the Indiana Pacers, is suffering from concussion-like symptoms.

He was injured in Friday’s loss to New Orleans.

Nelson is averaging 8.1 points, and 5.1 assists this season.

The Magic official said nobody else has been ruled out against the Sixers at this time. Beyond Monday, the official said that Nelson is day to day.

Indiana beat Orlando, 106-85, dropping the Magic to 12-8.
