The Orlando Magic will shut down starting guard Arron Afflalo for the rest of the season due to a right hamstring injury, a source confirmed to ESPNLosAngeles.com's Ramona Shelburne.

Afflalo was averaging 16.5 points and 3.2 assists for the Magic, who have 12 games remaining.

He played just 13 minutes in the game, scoring six points.
