John Denton, who covers the Magic for OrlandoMagic.com, tweeted the following on Nelson's status.
#Magic will be WITHOUT veteran PG Jameer Nelson tonight because of a sore groin. Rookie Victor Oladipo will start at PG.The injury comes as a surprise since Nelson played 34 minutes on Friday night. It's possible the he's been playing through the injury for some time. With only two games left in the season, don't be surprised if Nelson sits the last two and Oladipo starts. Oladipo had 14 points in 26 minutes against the Nets.
