Magic vs. Bulls: Jameer Nelson Out

According to Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel, starting point guard Jameer Nelson will not be in uniform when the Orlando Magic take on the Chicago Bulls Tuesday night.

Nelson, who scored nine points, dished out seven assists and grabbed four rebounds in Friday's win over the Denver Nuggets, was unable to play Sunday evening against Phoenix Suns. E'Twaun Moore started in Nelson's place and played well, scoring 15 points, dishing out six assists and grabbing three rebounds. Ish Smith backed Moore up and really struggled (0 points, four rebounds, one assist). He'll continue to back up Moore.

The Line: Chicago - 9.0

Projected Starters:

Orlando Magic
