Orlando Magic Roster Report 2009-12-05

Orlando Magic Roster Report 2009-12-05ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Jason Williams, Shooting guard Vince Carter, Small forward Mickael Pietrus, Power forward Rashard Lewis, Center Dwight Howard. Bench -- Guard J.J. Redick, Guard Anthony Johnson, Forward Ryan Anderson, Center Marcin Gortat, Forward Matt Barnes.


--F Mickael Pietrus, who is from French Guadeloupe, is one player not happy that the Magic are playing so many holiday games this season. They played on Thanksgiving Day in Atlanta, and they will play the Celtics in Orlando on Christmas.

"I think international players, especially, do not like to play on those holidays," he said.

--F Rashard Lewis has broken out of his earlier slump. The 17 points in the third quarter Wednesday matched a team high for this season. Lewis hit all five of his shots, including four of four from the three-point line.

--F Brandon Bass, who didn't even play in four consecutive games last month, had a season-high 17 points Wednesday night against the Knicks. As a backup power forward, he is playing again behind Rashard Lewis, cutting into the playing time that previously went to Ryan Anderson. It also has helped that Lewis has been playing some at small forward.


--G Jameer Nelson (left knee) had surgery to repair some torn cartilage and is expected to be out until late December.

--C Adonal Foyle (right knee) had similar surgery midway in October and he has working out. He should be available early in December.
