Ailing Carter 'day to day'

DENVER -- Orlando Magic guard Vince Carter was ruled out of Wednesday night's game against the Denver Nuggets because of continuing problems with a sprained left shoulder.

Magic coach Van Gundy said Carter is "day to day."

Carter has missed three games since injuring his shoulder last Friday when he collided with Washington's Andray Blatche.

He also missed four games in November because of a sprained left ankle.

Carter is averaging a team-high 17.4 points, scoring in double figures in 26 of his 32 games.
