(Washington-AP) -- Michael Jordan's knee is hurting after playing four games in five nights.

Jordan was taken out of the game early in Saturday's 96-to-87 loss to the Orlando Magic. He had 15 points on six-of-19 shooting.

Jordan has barely been able to practice for at least a week because of tendinitis in his right knee. He already has had the knee drained once.

Jordan is going to Chicago Sunday to see the former Bulls team physician, Dr. John Heffron.

Jordan says he doesn't expect the injury to linger. But he wants to make sure there is no ligament damage.
