Orlando’s Francis inactive against Grizzlies

Memphis, TN (Sports Network) – Orlando Magic guard Steve Francis missed
Friday’s game at Memphis with a bruised chest and left shoulder injury.

Francis is averaging 17.8 points and 6.2 assists per game this season for
Orlando (7-7), which will end a four-game road trip Saturday night at
Milwaukee.

The Magic expect their leading scorer to rejoin the team in Milwaukee, though
his status for the game is uncertain.

Jameer Nelson replaced Francis in the starting lineup. The second-year guard
made his first start of the season and is averaging 9.9 points in 23 minutes
per game.
