Nelson to return tonight from injury

Here is an article from cbssports.com about the status of Magic point guard Jameer Nelson:

Nelson to return, back up Williams at point for Magic

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Jameer Nelson is back for the Orlando Magic.

Coach Stan Van Gundy says the All-Star point will return against the Utah Jazz on Monday night. Nelson will come off the bench in place of Jason Williams, pushing Anthony Johnson back into a reserve role.

Nelson has not played since he had surgery Nov. 18 to repair torn cartilage in his left knee. He practiced for the first time in about a month Sunday. He was averaging 13.7 points and 5.5 assists before getting hurt.

This won't be the first time he has returned from surgery.

Nelson injured his right shoulder in February and had it repaired. In a surprise move, he returned early for the NBA Finals but struggled as Orlando lost to the Los Angeles Lakers in five games.
