Aldridge, Nelson out for Blazers-Magic matchup

AP - Sports

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Portland forward LaMarcus Aldridge and Orlando point guard Jameer Nelson have been ruled out for Tuesday night's game.

Aldridge is out for the seventh straight game with a lower back contusion, and Nelson is missing his fourth consecutive game with a sore left knee.

Magic coach Jacque Vaughn says Nelson is day to day. Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts didn't have a further update on Aldridge's status.

Portland is trying to snap a two-game losing streak, while the Magic are hoping to avoid their second 10-game slide of the season.
