Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Will start Monday vs. Sixers

Vucevic (Achilles) will get the start Monday against the Sixers, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

Over the weekend, it was revealed that Vucevic's troublesome right Achilles flared up again, causing him to be held out of practice Sunday. However, he's apparently feeling considerably better Monday and will be available in his usual capacity as the Magic's starting center. Vucevic is coming off of an 18-point, 17-rebound double-double Friday in Phoenix.
