Jameer Nelson To Return Monday, Play "Limited Minutes"

Via Orlando Pinstriped Post, we learn that Jameer Nelson will play “limited minutes” in tonight’s game against the Utah Jazz.

John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports.

If there’s no swelling in Nelson’s knee, the Magic’s captain should play. The original plan called for him to return on Wednesday against the Houston Rockets, but Nelson impressed in practice the past two days so much so that he could be on the floor against Deron Williams and the Utah Jazz.

Magic coach Stan Van Gundy has said that Nelson is his starting point guard once fully healthy, but because he’s likely to play only limited minutes tonight, he’ll come off the bench if he can play. Jason Williams, who played well in Saturday’s win against Portland, will continue to start.

Nelson has missed the last month of the season due to arthroscopic knee surgery.
