Jameer Nelson out vs. Sixers

Orlando guard Jameer Nelson will not play Monday night against the 76ers.

Nelson, the Chester High and Saint Joseph's product, has concussion-like symptoms after being hit in the head twice during Friday night's loss to New Orleans, coach Stan Van Gundy told reporters before the Magic's game Sunday night against Indiana.

Nelson is suffering from nausea and is not at the arena in Orlando for Sunday's game and won't travel with the team to Philadelphia.

Chris Duhon will start at point guard and be backed up by Larry Hughes, a former Sixers first-round draft pick.
