Magic's backcourt loses another, as Pietrus has torn thumb ligament
Pietrus averages nearly 13 points a game and is one of the Magic's main 3-point shooters.
He hurt his thumb against Philadelphia last week. Pietrus played with the injury against the Wizards on Thursday but an MRI exam revealed the damage Friday.
The injury leaves an already thin Magic backcourt even more depleted.
