The Orlando Magic will be without its starting backcourt Saturday. Arron Afflalo (calf) and Jameer Nelson (forearm) are both out, according to Magic beater writer Josh Robbins.
X-rays were negative on Nelson's arm, the Orlando Sentinel reported. This is the fourth game Afflalo has missed. No word on when he's expected back.
E'Twaun Moore will need to pick up the slack. In 24 minutes Friday, Moore scored 14 points, hit a three,
pulled down four rebounds, dished four assists and stole a ball.
The Magic have been decimated by injuries this season. Glen Davis has been lost for the season with a broken foot, and now the Magic are without Nelson and Afflalo.
Expect a big game from J.J. Redick and Nikola Vucevic.
Jameer Nelson (forearm) and Arron Afflalo (calf) will not play for the #Magic against the #Bucks.
