Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Scores 17 points in 20 minutes during season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nikola Vucevic (leg) managed 17 points (8-13 FG, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, and one assist in 20 minutes during the Orlando Magic 's 117-103 loss to the Hornets on Wednesday.

Vucevic missed Monday's matchup with Milwaukee due to a right leg bruise, but he was cleared to return for the Magic's season finale. Vucevic played just 20 minutes, but turned in a solid statistical effort in his limited time. Vucevic continues to raise his level of play on offense, but he still has much to improve on the other end if Orlando is truly going to fight for a playoff spot in 2016-17.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Will start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nikola Vucevic (leg) will play and start in Wednesday's matchup with the Hornets, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

Vucevic missed Orlando's previous contest against the Bucks, and was considered questionable heading into Wednesday evening. However, barring any setbacks he is listed to start in Orlando's season finale. While he will play and have an favorable matchup, the Orlando Magic could have a short leash with him in order to avoid suffering a more serious injury.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Expects to play in finale
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Vucevic (leg) said he expects to play in Wednesday's season finale against the Hornets, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

Vucevic missed Monday's game against the Bucks with a leg contusion, but after going through shootaround Wednesday morning, he's on course to return as the Magic close out the regular season. Assuming Vucevic plays, it's unclear whether he'll be reinserted into the starting lineup or come off the bench behind Dewayne Dedmon.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Out vs. Bucks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nikola Vucevic will not play Monday against the Bucks due to a right leg bruise, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

The extent of the injury is unknown, but considering the diagnosis of a bruise it's likely nothing serious. Regardless, Orlando will hold its start center out of action, and he'll be joined in street clothes by Victor Oladipo and Aaron Gordon, who are both out with concussions. Coincidentally, the Milwaukee team Orlando hosts Monday is only a game "ahead" in the lottery standings.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Scores game-high 29 points in return to starting lineup
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Vucevic finished with 29 points (12-20 FG, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, two blocks, one assist, and one steal across 35 minutes during the Magic's 112-109 win over the Heat on Friday.

Vucevic helped his Magic play the role of spoilers very well on Friday as they knocked off the playoff-bound Miami Heat. Vucevic had already been cooking off the bench since returning from his groin injury, and in five games back, he is averaging 23 points on 63 percent from the field, 8.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.4 blocks, and 1.2 steals in 28 minutes. A rematch versus league-leading swatter Hassan Whiteside and the Heat looms for Sunday.
