Update: Nelson will be activated for Game 1 according to reports on ESPN.
Lakers Examiner: According to the Orlando Sentinel, Orlando Magic All-Star point guard Jameer Nelson will not play in game one tonight against the Los Angeles Lakers.
Nelson, who was thought to be out for the year, began practicing with the team this week in an attempt to come back for the Lakers series.
The report also said that the chances of Nelson returning in the middle of the series are “slim.”
So it looks like It’s going to be the same old Magic against the same old Lakers, just the way it should be.
No excuses. Let’s settle it on the court. The fun starts tonight at 6 p.m. on ABC.
