Warriors Vs. Magic: Dorell Wright To Sit Out With Knee Contusion

It's been said that when bad things happen they come in threes, and for the Golden State Warriors it has been just that as a third W will sit out tonight against the Orlando Magic as Dorell Wright won't be suiting up tonight with a knee contusion, according to CSNBayArea.com.

Wright suffered the injury in Tuesday night's thrilling overtime victory or the Miami Heat, banging his knee hard against the knee of Dwayne Wade, though went on to be one of the hero's of the night, scoring 20 points with a season high six threes, including one late to help seal the victory.

Head coach Mark Jackson has selected Brandon Rush to start in his place.

With Wright sitting, Curry still sidelined with his recurring ankle injury and the news that Kwame Brown will miss at least three months with surgery on his shoulder, the W's will be seriously shorthanded this evening against the Magic.

Andris Biedrins will be suiting up for the first time in the last three games though, and will be in for a treat having to deal with Dwight Howard the most of the night.
