Jameer Nelson will not play against the Bobcats, Duhon to start
Jameer Nelson will be sidelined tonight when the Magic face off against the Bobcats in Charlotte due to neck spams. He suffered the injury late in the victory last night against the Nets. The injury is not considered anything but a minor setback.

Chris Duhon will start in Jameer’s place with Larry Hughes coming off the bench as the backup PG. Daniel Orton gets the call to suit up as the 13th man ahead of DeAndre Liggins who is a little banged up himself with an ankle injury. It will be tough for Orton to get minutes tonight and even though he is suited up, the team can still only play 12 guys (dress 13, play 12).
