Default Mickael Pietrus out three to five weeks

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Orlando Magic guard Mickael Pietrus will be out three to five weeks because of a torn ligament in his right thumb.

Pietrus averages nearly 13 points 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 revealed the damage Friday.

The injury leaves an already thin Magic backcourt even thinner.

The Magic are already missing backup guard Keith Bogans because of a broken thumb, and starting point guard Jameer Nelson is nursing a pulled groin.

Ouch, this must suck for Magic fans. They're playing so well even with this injury bug. I guess we'll be seeing more of J.J. Redrick.

You are right. It does suck. Jameer Nelson, Keith Bogan, and now Pietrus.

This is obviously not good, but if there's one positive to take out of this, it's that J.J. Redick is finally getting some minutes and playing... alright.

Not really... Courtney Lee should start in my opinion.

Aren't we trying to turn Courtney Lee into a PG? I think we stick with that IMO.

Courtney Lee is a natural SG and if you try and turn him into a PG he will never reach his true potential.

I know that's your opinion, but I'm pretty sure that prior statement I made was straight from the management.
