The Magic's season has been off to a stellar start. Blow out the Nuggets at home, topple the Suns. It's began about as well as could be expected. After all the hard times, looks like it's all looking up for ... oh, damn it.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that Jameer Nelson was headed to a doctor Monday, and there's a question mark as to his status for Tuesday's game in Chicago.

Nelson has been a huge part of that early success for the Magic, playing aggressively and smartly while shooting exceptionally well. The Magic re-signed Nelson on a three-year deal even in the midst of the turmoil over the Dwight Howard trade and facing an uncertain future.

Nelson's veteran leadership is something the Magic are trying to lean on in their inexplicable win-now attitude. Hopefully he's just a little banged up and will be fine.
