Magic injury update

A day after the Orlando Magic finally got their full squad back on the court together the injury bug struck again on Tuesday.

Rashard Lewis tried to practice Tuesday, but once again pulled up lame on his sore right ankle. Shooting guard J.J. Redick had to sit out because of lingering pain in the right hand that he broke prior to training camp. And point guard Jameer Nelson was unable to practice because of a stomach virus.

Coach Stan Van Gundy said Lewis started practice Tuesday, but asked out because of discomfort in the ankle.

Redick said he re-injured his hand in Monday's practice when he fell awkwardly on his right wrist. He said he notified the Magic's trainers of the injury early Tuesday morning and X-rays show no broken bones. Redick was scheduled to have a MRI later Tuesday afternoon. He had his wrist and hand wrapped Tuesday as he watched practice from the sidelines.

On the positive side, Trevor Ariza and Keyon Dooling - who missed all three of the games the Magic played while in China - not only practiced Tuesday, but Van Gundy said they were two of the best players in drills. Ariza had been out with tendinitis in his foot, while Dooling had been bothered by pain in his groin and hip.

    The only thing that matters to me is that Lewis is ready to go opening night. We're at 1 week and counting.

    I already have my lower bowl seat, and it'd be really disappointing for him not to be out there.
