Orlando Magic Daily:
Things were going great for Andrew Nicholson.
His advanced post game made him a player who could instantly get inserted into the lineup and produce for the Magic. Orlando could trust him with the ball to score more often than not. It was refreshing to see from the rookie that he was able to contribute almost immediately.
Nicholson though has recently found himself buried on the roster with Tobias Harris taking over the starting power forward spot and Kyle O'Quinn pushing his way into the rotation. Nicholson even had to cede time for a while to Al Harrington in his cameo this season.
Nicholson's playing time has often been a yo-yo between ample playing time and no playing time -- between starting and sitting. It can be tough for a rookie to go through these wild swings.

Beno Udrih and Nate Robinson were trading body blows as the Magic and Bulls played Friday night. There was no knockout punch to deliver. Just a major whiff from the Magic and Udrih.
Orlando had the final possession, down by a point and got the ball to the guy they wanted. That would be the veteran point guard from Slovenia who scored 18 of his 27 points in the third quarter,...
It is a common refrain from me, from Jacque Vaughn and from everyone else. This is a year for young players to grow and learn. This is a year to make mistakes and create habits.
