Wizards Vs. Magic: Jameer Nelson, Jason Richardson Injuries To Sideline Orlando Guards For Game

The Washington Wizards are looking to pick up their second road win of the season on Wednesday night as they visit the Orlando Magic. If the Wizards were ever hoping to take advantage of a punch-drunk team, it would be the current Magic. Orlando has dropped four in a row, lost six of their last eight games and barely managed to put up a fight in weeks.

Now it seems as though the Wizards will also be facing a depleted Orlando squad. According to Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel, Magic head coach Stan Van Gundy has stated that two of his players will be out of Wednesday's game due to injuries.

Jason Richardson with be out of the game with a knee injury. The shooting guard has been averaging 9.9 PPG and 3.1 RPG. Also sitting out the game will be point guard Jameer Nelson, due to concussion. Nelson has been averaging 8.1 points per game and 5.1 assists per game thus far in the shortened 2011-12 NBA season.
