Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Superb sixth season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic averaged 16.5 points, 9.2 rebounds and 3.4 assists across 57 games played with the Magic during the 2017-18 NBA season.

Vucevic has been a heavy contributor to the Magic's offense the past five years and his 2017-18 campaign was no different. The Switzerland native increased his free-throw percentage dramatically from 66.9 percent last year to 81.9 percent this year which allowed him to increase his points-per-game average by almost two points. Vucevic did fracture his finger though which made him miss a huge chunk of the season. Currently, the 25-year-old is under contract for next year at $12.8 million.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Will not play full workload Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic will play "not big minutes" according to coach Frank Vogel during Wednesday's season finale against the Wizards, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

Wednesday's season finale is essentially meaningless for Orlando, so the organization will opt to reduce Vucevic's workload, limiting his potential for injury. As a result, Bismack Buyombo and Khem Birch should see an uptick in minutes.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Double-doubles in Monday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic finished with 17 points (8-17 FG, 1-1 FT), 10 rebounds, seven assists and three blocks in 29 minutes during Monday's 102-86 loss to the Bucks.

Vucevic was nice Monday, finishing with another double-double. He continues to put up the best numbers of his career in what has been a stellar season for the Magic big man. Owners have to be pleased with their investment despite the injury but should keep an eye on his status for the final regular season game.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Records 10 points and nine rebounds in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic supplied 10 points (5-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt), nine rebounds, three assists, two steals and a blocked shot in 23 minutes during Sunday's 112-101 loss to the Raptors.

Vucevic was one rebound short of a double-double and ceded several minutes to both Khem Birch and Bismack Biyombo on Sunday. It's expected that Vucevic will see a similar amount of minutes in the Magic's final two games, so he'll be a risky DFS play for those two contests.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Will play Sunday vs. Raptors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic (back) will play in Sunday's matchup with the Raptors, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports.

Vucevic was held out of a pair of games due to a sore back, but as expected, will rejoin the lineup ahead of Sunday's contest. Look for Vucevic to reclaim the starting center role right away, which should send Bismack Biyombo back to the bench in the corresponding move. The Magic are currently headed into a back-to-back set, however, so Vucevic could ultimately be held out of Monday's tilt with Milwaukee. That said, it's merely a situation to monitor and fantasy owners should feel comfortable getting Vucevic active for Sunday's contest.
