Lewis to rest knee for playoffs
With the Magic's chance of catching the Boston Celtics for the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference all but gone, coach Stan Van Gundy decided that he would give Lewis a rest Saturday night and again Monday against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Van Gundy said there is nothing structurally wrong with the knee but he wants to make sure Lewis, who had not missed a game all season, is healthy for the playoffs.
Lewis is averaging 17.7 points.
