Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Fourth straight double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic had 16 points (5-12 FG, 6-8 FT), 16 boards, three assists, one block and one steal in 33 minutes of a 120-115 win against Memphis on Tuesday.

Vucevic notched his fourth straight double-double and ninth in his last 10 games with his solid performance. Vucevic is a monster on the glass but has also been able to contribute in other parts of the box score, even when he's not his most efficient from the field.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Dominates Rockets on glass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic provided 16 points (5-12 FG, 6-8 FT), 16 rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block across 33 minutes Sunday in the Magic's 126-106 win over the Rockets.

Vucevic wasn't at peak efficiency Sunday after clearing 20 points in each of the past three games while shooting 54.1 percent from the field, but he didn't have much competition on the boards while taking aim at an undersized Houston frontcourt. A 20-20 game may have been in reach for Vucevic had the Magic's 29-point lead entering the final quarter not resulted in all their starters having their playing time suppressed to some degree. The 29-year-old could be in store for more minutes and touches Tuesday, when the Magic take on Jonas Valanciunas and the Grizzlies.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Comes close to triple-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic posted 22 points (9-16 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 16 rebounds, seven assists and one block in 40 minutes during Wednesday's 116-113 loss at Miami.

Vucevic's huge game couldn't lift Orlando to a win, but the Montenegrin big man continues to produce at an impressive rate. He has registered double-doubles in eight of his last 10 games, scoring 20 or more points in six of those contests while shooting 51.3 percent from the field during that span.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Big double-double against Blazers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic scored a team-high 30 points (12-24 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding 11 rebounds, two assists and a steal in 32 minutes during Monday's 130-107 loss to the Trail Blazers.

After falling one board shy of his sixth straight double-double Saturday, Vucevic immediately got a new streak going while scoring at least 30 points for the first time since Nov. 17. The veteran center averaged 20.6 points, 10.1 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 1.2 blocks and 1.1 threes through 12 games in February, and with the Magic trying to hang onto a playoff spot, he doesn't seem inclined to slow down now.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Double-double streak at five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic scored 27 points (12-18 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, five assists and a block in 34 minutes during Friday's 136-125 win over the Timberwolves.

He took advantage of the absence of Karl-Anthony Towns (wrist) although nobody's been able to slow Vucevic down much lately. The Orlando center has a double-double in five straight games and seven of his last nine, averaging 20.9 points, 10.7 boards, 4.6 assists, 1.3 blocks and 1.2 threes over that stretch.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Fourth straight double double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic notched 17 points (8-15 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-3 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists and one block in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 130-120 win at Atlanta.

Vucevic has experienced a statistical drop-off in most categories compared to what he did in the 2018-19 season, but the Montenegrin big man seems to be on the rise of late. This was his fourth straight double-double, and he has accomplished that feat in six of 10 February contests so far. Vucevic also has scored 15 points or more in seven consecutive games.

February 24, 2020 11:44 PM
Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Third straight double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic scored 16 points (7-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, five assists and a block in 34 minutes during Monday's 115-113 win over the Nets.

The double-double was his third in a row and 29th of the season. Vucevic remains a strong fantasy option with a rock-solid floor, scoring in double digits in 32 straight games and averaging 20.8 points, 10.0 boards, 4.7 assists, 1.4 threes, 1.3 blocks and 0.9 steals through nine games in February.

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

Vucevic scored 27 points (12-27 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding 12 rebounds, four steals, one assist and one block in 37 minutes during Friday's 122-106 loss to the Mavericks.

The double-double was his 28th of the season as he came roaring out of the All-Star break in style. Vucevic remains a rock-solid producer, averaging 21.4 points, 10.0 boards, 4.6 assists, 1.5 threes, 1.4 blocks and 1.0 steals through eight games in February.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Another well-rounded line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic recorded 19 points (9-21 FG, 1-7 3Pt), 11 rebounds, seven assists, three steals and one block in 40 minutes during Wednesday's 116-112 overtime win against the Pistons.

Vucevic provided the clincher in overtime while turning in an extremely well-rounded stat line. He hasn't been quite as good as he was last season, but Vucevic remains one of the more versatile statistical contributors regardless of position.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Nears triple-double in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic delivered 24 points (10-15 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), nine rebounds, nine assists and one block in 33 minutes during Monday's 135-126 win over the Hawks.

Vucevic finished a board and a dime shy of a triple-double while providing incredibly efficient scoring and posting a season-high nine assists versus zero turnovers. He has scored at least 21 in five of six games here in February, and Vucevic will try to carry this momentum into Wednesday's matchup against the Pistons.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Double-double in loss to Bucks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic scored a team-high 21 points (10-20 FG, 0-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding 14 rebounds, six assists and two blocks in 35 minutes during Saturday's 111-95 loss to the Bucks.

His struggles from beyond the arc didn't do the Magic any favors, but Vucevic still delivered a strong overall fantasy performance. The 29-year-old only has two double-doubles through five games in February, one of his worst stretches of the season in that regard, but he's still averaging 20.2 points, 9.6 boards, 4.0 assists, 1.6 blocks and 1.2 threes to begin the month.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Swats three shots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic notched 25 points (9-13 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds, three blocks, three assists and one steal in 34 minutes during Thursday's 105-103 loss at New York.

Vucevic doesn't offer much value on the defensive end of the court, and the three blocks he notched against the Knicks tied a season-high mark for him. Most of his upside lies on what he can do scoring and rebounding, and he averages 20.0 points (on 56.7 percent shooting) with 8.5 boards per game during his last four starts. He has topped the 20-point mark thrice during that span.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Quiet in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic collected 12 points (5-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-4 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and one block in 32 minutes in Wednesday's 116-100 loss versus the Celtics.

Vucevic struggled to score in this game, but was still able to record a double-double. This is the sixth time in his last nine starts that the center has posted double-digit rebounds and his 11th double-double since the start of January. Vucevic should have a better showing Thursday night, when the Magic visit the Knicks. The last time he faced this club, Vucevic produced 21 points, 14 rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal in 34 minutes of work.

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

Vucevic scored 13 points (5-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT) while adding 12 rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block in 33 minutes during Monday's 113-92 loss to the Heat.

No Magic player could get much going offensively -- Vucevic tied Aaron Gordon for the team lead in scoring, and Orlando shot just 37.1 percent from the floor as a team -- but the center still made a decent fantasy contribution. The double-double was Vucevic's 11th through 15 games in January, and he's averaging 19.5 points, 11.6 boards, 3.5 assists, 2.1 threes and 0.9 steals on the month.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Double-double streak ends
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic had 13 points (5-14 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, and five assists across 26 minutes in Sunday's 112-97 loss to the Clippers.

Vucevic saw his double-double streak end at four games while fouling out in his team's loss. After coming up empty from distance, Vucevic also snapped a 17-game streak of knocking down at least one three-pointer, a stretch during which he converted at a 41.2 percent clip from behind the arc. He'll have the chance to bounce back right away Monday, when the Magic take on the Heat in the second half of a back-to-back set.

January 21, 2020 10:08 AM
Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Back-to-back double-doubles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic had 24 points (11-21 FG, 2-5 3PT), 10 rebounds, four assists and one steal in 31 minutes during Monday's 106-86 win at Charlotte.

Vucevic was coming off an ugly shooting night against the Warriors last Saturday, but he bounced back with a strong performance here to lead his side against a struggling Hornets squad. The Montenegrin big man has seven double-doubles in his last 10 outings and is averaging 20.4 points with 12.1 rebounds during that span, so his place as Orlando's go-to guy on offense shouldn't be in question. He should remain productive ahead of Wednesday's home tilt against the Thunder.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Ugly shooting mars double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic posted 13 points (6-19 FG, 1-5 3Pt), 13 rebounds, three assists and one steal in 33 minutes Saturday in the Magic's 109-95 loss to the Warriors.

Though he came away with his 20th double-double of the season, Vucevic's rough shooting from the field undermined the impact of his counting stats. The poor efficiency has been an issue for Vucevic all season; he's shooting 44.6 percent from the floor through 32 outings, well down from his 51.8 percent mark from 2018-19.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Hits glass hard in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic registered 26 points (9-23 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 15 rebounds, three blocks and two assists in 37 minutes during Monday's 114-112 win at Sacramento.

Vucevic's efficiency left something to be desired, but the center still easily notched his sixth double-double in seven outings. After a slow start to the season followed by an 11-game absence due to sprained right ankle, Vucevic has been excellent since returning to action in mid-December. Over the past month, he's averaging 20.4 points, 11.3 boards, 3.2 assists, 2.1 triples, 1.1 steals and 0.9 blocks in 32.3 minutes over 15 games.

January 10, 2020 11:32 PM
Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Double-doubles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic scored 18 points (8-21 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), and tallied 13 rebounds, three assists and two steals in a loss to the Suns on Friday.

After an efficient, 29-point outing in their last game against the Wizards, Vucevic's scoring cooled off a bit, but he still provided fantasy owners with a solid performance. DeAndre Ayton and Aron Baynes were able to stifle Vucevic a couple of times from the field in this one. The 29-year old has put up early-round value again this season, and should continue to be the most reliable fantasy option on this Magic team - especially now that Jonathan Isaac (knee) is out.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Comes close to 30-10 night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic had 29 points (12-20 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in 28 minutes during Wednesday's 123-89 win over the Wizards.

The 20 field goal attempts were at least double the shot amount of any other Magic teammate, and only the third time the 29-year-old has achieved such feat this season. It worked well, considering Orlando dominated so much that Vucevic didn't play at all in the fourth quarter. The big man's nine rebounds snapped a four-game stretch of double-digit boards, but the 29 points are his highest points tally since his Dec. 15 return from an ankle injury, a welcoming stat to fantasy teams who employ him.
