ATLANTA (AP) -- Orlando Magic guard Jameer Nelson was not in the starting lineup Thursday night because of a strained left knee.

Chris Duhon was slated to start in Nelson's place against the Atlanta Hawks.

Coach Stan Van Gundy said that Nelson, who has started 28 games this season, was injured in the Magic's 108-91 victory Wednesday night at New Jersey.

Shooting guard Jason Richardson was listed among the starters despite discomfort in his chest. Van Gundy said that Richardson was not feeling well enough to participate in the team's shootaround Thursday morning.

Small forward Hedo Turkoglu has been battling flu-like symptoms, but was listed to start.
