Jameer Nelson’s Season Could Be Over; Decision Yet to Be Made

Whatever they decide to do, this is terrible news for the Magic: “Magic point guard Jameer Nelson will have surgery at some point to repair a torn labrum, General Manager Otis Smith said Tuesday. Smith said the club was trying to determine whether Nelson will have the operation soon, which would end his season, or try to rehab and play through the injury. Most likely, Nelson will be out for the season. ‘At some point in time, he’s going to have to have surgery,’ Smith said.”

    Wow. I can’t express how sorry I feel for Jameer right now. Dude has been balling this year. Get well soon.

  • Sebastian B. O. Bunionstow, esq.

    Sad to. Jameer was playin’ lights out this year.

    Couldn’t have said it better than B. Long. Sorry, Jameer.

    Totally sucks.
    But c’mon, Mo Williams deserves it just as much as Jameer did.

    It seems like a lot of injuried happen during the 2 weeks leading up to All-Star Weekend. I hope Vince Carter gets to replace him. Can’t have a more “entertaining” game with out him.

    going from emotional high (1st time all-star selection) to lowest WITHIN A WEEK has to be a crushing blow. damn. i feel for dude, the team, and the fans.

    what a great year… he was shooting over fifty percent, as a point guard.

  • http://www.alllooksame.com Tarzan Cooper

    they have to sign a point guard, anthony johnson cant run the team full time.

    This is terrible news. Partly for Jameer, partly for the Magic, but mainly for my fantasy team.

    This sucks so bad. I sorta just was feeling that Jameer was having an amazing season and would die down a year or two afterwords. Now I hope I’m wrong. He deserves more time in the limelight.

  • jose

    Definitely sux for him. Hope he gets healthy (for the playoffs if any,tho not likely it seems) So i guess its between Mo and Ray Ray now for that ASG spot….

    as far as all star is concerned it’s obvious that stern should pick mo williams. now for the magic, they’ve gotta swing a deal – crittenton, lowry, watson, TELFAIR. where in the world is bryce drew? maybe travis diener again. i just pray to god we don’t pick up stevie franchise tinsley or marbury somehow…

  • Mike

    VC for the all-star game…haaooooo!!!!

  • Oli

    it’s probably between mo and sugar ray, but i want VC!!!

    Anthony Johnson is not great but he’s not bad either. I think he’d do a better job than some street free agent.

  • Ken

    Yeah, horrible timing. Time for the Magic to bring in Starbury…

  • MeloMan13

    VC or Ray Allen
