Nelson May Be Out For The Season

New, comments

Obviously a huge blow for the Magic.  AP reports:

All-Star point guard Jameer Nelson could miss the rest of the season for the Orlando Magic because of a torn labrum in his right shoulder.

An MRI exam revealed the injury Tuesday, the team announced.

Nelson will decide over the next week whether he will have surgery or attempt rehabilitation. If surgery is the option, his season is likely over. If he passes on the surgery, he'll likely miss several weeks.

Say what you want about his inclusion in the All Star game, he was a big part of the reason why that team was doing so well.  We'll see if they look to make a trade for a point guard at the deadline.

Orlando does not have a third point guard behind backup Anthony Johnson. The Magic likely will have to sign another point guard, or convert shooting guards J.J. Reddick and Courtney Lee. Magic general manager Otis Smith scheduled a news conference for later Tuesday.
