Magic Forward Lewis Playing with Viral Infection

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – Orlando Magic forward Rashard Lewis says he

has been playing with a viral infection during the Eastern

Conference finals.

Lewis said after the Magic's shootaround Wednesday that he's

been sick the “whole series” against the Boston Celtics. He says

he has been “feeling weak” and “tired” during games and hasn't

been able to hold food down.

Lewis is shooting 29 percent for the series and averaging seven

points per game. The Magic's highest-paid player has been

criticized for his performance in the series thus far. He has a

six-year contract worth $118 million.

Lewis said he will take intravenous fluids before Game 5 on

Wednesday night for the fourth straight game.

The Celtics lead the Magic 3-1.
