ORLANDO, Fla. -- Orlando Magic point guard Jameer Nelson and forward Mickael Pietrus were sidelined against the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night with injuries.

Nelson hyperextended his left knee in the Magic's win at Detroit on Sunday. He is day to day. Jason Williams started in Nelson's place.

Nelson had surgery to repair torn cartilage in the knee in November. He has played through swelling since returning in December and has said he will likely have to play through pain at times this season.

Pietrus sprained his right ankle Sunday. He is also day to day.
