Jameer Nelson participated in shootaround this morning and appears ready to go for tonight’s game. His knee injury does not appear to be too serious.

–Brian Windhorst, writing for the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, writes questions about Dwight Howard’s future may sound very familiar to Cavs fans.

Gilbert Arenas knows he has to step up his game and resemble the All-Star player he once was. With Jameer Nelson ailing, the Magic may need Arenas to quicken his pace in returning to form, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel writes.

Brandon Bass and Ryan Anderson have been able to produce since the trades that sent Marcin Gortat and Rashard Lewis out of town. Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel writes, however, their true test is yet to come.

Hedo Turkoglu had one of his worst nights in a Magic uniform Friday night against the Bulls. Orlando is not going to win very many games with their star player shooting 2 for 12.
