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.
