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

Vucevic scored a team-high 34 points (14-22 FG, 6-12 3Pt) while adding 10 rebounds, seven assists and five steals in 36 minutes during Saturday's 122-115 loss to the Nets,

The points, assists, steals and made three-pointers were all season highs for Vucevic, who also delivered his ninth double-double in 13 games. The 30-year-old big continues to improve as a fantasy asset, but he isn't getting much help from the rest of the Magic roster.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Stuffs stat sheet Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic posted 15 points (6-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, four assists and two steals across 26 minutes in Friday's loss to the Celtics.

Vucevic has been Orlando's top player by a wide margin this season, and this 15-point performance was his joint-lowest scoring effort of the campaign. He has also posted double-doubles in all but four of his outings, so this might have been nothing more than an off night for the talented big man. Vucevic will attempt to get back on track Saturday in another tough matchup against the Nets on the road.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Magic-Celtics postponed Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic and the Magic will not play Wednesday against the Celtics after the NBA postponed the game, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

The Celtics are still dealing with COVID-related absences on the team and don't have the required number of players available to suit up. The Magic's next game is scheduled for Friday against the Celtics once again.

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

Vucevic went for 28 points ( 11-25 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 13 rebounds and five assists in 32 minutes during Monday's 121-99 loss to the Bucks.

The double-double was Vucevic's third straight and eight overall of the season. He continues to be the Magic's go-to scorer, leading the team in six of 11 games. He continues his impressive scoring pace as he has now gone for 20 or more points in seven of 11 games this season. He also has two games with 30 or more points after not recording his second 30-point performance last season until the 50th game.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: First 30-point game of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic went for 30 points (14-24 FG, 2-7 3Pt), 15 rebounds, two assists and two steals over 33 minutes in the Magic's 112-98 loss to the Mavs on Saturday.

After failing to record a double-double in two straight games, Vucevic has now done so in back-to-back games. His 30 points are a season-high and his first such game since going for 30 on March 2nd of the last basketball season. He has now been the leading scorer for the Magic in four of 10 games and their leading rebounder in eight of those games.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Notches sixth double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic totaled 22 points (8-19 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists and one steal in 30 minutes during Friday's 132-90 loss to Houston.

Vucevic put up a double-double for the first time in three games after he had started the season with five in his first six outings. His evening could have been even bigger had he not sat out the entire fourth quarter with the Magic facing a 36-point deficit.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Adds 16 points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic scored 16 points (7-17 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT) to go with seven rebounds, six assists and one block across 34 minutes in a 105-94 win over Cleveland on Wednesday.

The center started cold with an 0-for-6 shooting performance from the field in the first quarter, but he went on to make his next five attempts before halftime. Vucevic has led the Magic in scoring in three of their eight games thus far, in the process averaging 21.0 points per game -- a career high if he can maintain it -- to go with his typical excellent rebounding (10.5 per game).

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Fills up stat sheet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic scored 23 points (9-16 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT) along with eight rebounds, three blocks, two assists and two steals in the win over the Cavs.

This marks the first time in four games that Vucevic did not record a double-double. However, he has been lighting up the scoreboard this season, going over 20 points in five of seven games. His range has also improved as he has made 18 shots from behind the arc through seven games compared to last year when he didn't make his 18th three-pointer until his 15th game.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Scores team-high 30 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic notched 30 points (13-21 FG, 4-7 3Pt), 13 rebounds and two assists across 35 minutes in Saturday's 108-99 loss against the Thunder.

Vucevic has scored 15 or more points in six straight contests, and he has topped the 20-point mark in three of those games. He's also posted five double-doubles in that six-game stretch, meaning he's making a clear, sizable impact on both ends of the court on a regular basis. He should remain as Orlando's go-to guy on offense moving forward.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Third double-double of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic scored 28 points (12-18 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, five assists and a steal across 34 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Thunder.

Vucevic has scored at least 15 points in every game this season and has also double-doubled in three of the team's first four games, so it's safe to say Vucevic has been a reliable asset on both ends of the court for the Magic. He's expected to have a tougher matchup Thursday, however, as he will have to deal with Joel Embiid when Orlando takes on the Philadelphia 76ers to close out the calendar year.

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

Vucevic posted 22 points (8-20 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 17 rebounds, three assists and two steals in a win over Orlando on Saturday.

Vucevic paced all players with 17 boards in the victory en route to his second straight double-double. In what could be a boon to fantasy managers, the center is venturing beyond the arc more frequently so far this season, averaging 2.5 treys on 6.0 attempts after making 1.6 threes on 4.7 tries per game in 2019-20. Whether or not that trend continues, Vucevic is among the most reliable double-double threats in the league, having ranked eighth in the NBA with 41 such performances last season.

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

Vucevic totaled 15 points (5-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-8 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 34 minutes of Wednesday's 113-107 win over the Heat.

Vucevic put up double-doubles in each of his four preseason games and continued the streak into the season opener. It's nothing new for the big man as he has averaged the feat on a nightly basis in all but two of his last eight seasons.

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

Vucevic scored 18 points (7-11 FG, 4-6 3PT) to go with 12 rebounds and two assists during Saturday's 120-117 preseason win over Charlotte.

Vucevic finished the preseason in style with a double-double, including a team-high 12 rebounds on Saturday. The center is a nailed-on starter for Orlando and has little competition in his role heading into the new year. As such, fantasy managers should feel confident selecting him in the third or fourth round of drafts.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Drops 27 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic scored 27 points (12-20 FG, 3-8 3PT) to go along with 12 rebounds, one assist and one steal across 32 minutes in Thursday's preseason contest against the Hornets.

Vucevic continued to rack up rebounds and has now totaled 38 across three preseason contests. He picked up the scoring pace as well, leading the Magic in field-goal attempts and points while also working fairly efficiently. Vucevic should continue to lead the way when the Magic tip-off the regular season Wednesday against the Heat.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Goes for another double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic had 14 points (6-17 FG, 0-5 3PT, 2-4 FT) and 15 boards in Sunday's preseason loss to Atlanta.

After posting a double-double in Friday's opener, Vucevic followed up with another strong effort Sunday. The big man may not have the highest ceiling, but he's established himself as one of the league's most consistent high-end fantasy contributors at the center position.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Doesn't miss a beat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic racked up 18 points (8-14 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 0-1 FT), 11 rebounds, four assists, one steal and a block in 25 minutes during Orlando's 116-112 win over the Hawks on Friday.

Recording a game-high plus-25, Vucevic paced the team in scoring and matched a team-high playing 25 minutes. After averaging 19.6 points and 10.9 rebounds per game last season, Vucevic picked up right where he left off and is in line for another hefty role with the Magic in 2021.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Stuffs stat sheet in Game 5 defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic had 22 points (9-25 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 15 rebounds, five assists and one steal in 40 minutes during Saturday's 118-104 Game 5 loss to the Bucks.

Vucevic finished with more field-goal attempts than points in the final game of Orlando's postseason but again delivered a monster stat line. While his regular season per-game averages took a bit of a dip compared to 2018-19, Vucevic stepped up in a major way during these playoffs with the Magic down several starters due to injury. He remains the top offensive option for an Orlando team that sometimes struggles to score, neither of which seems all that likely to change heading into next season.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Goes for 31 and 11 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic had 31 points (11-20 FG, 6-10 3PT, 3-3 FT), 11 rebounds, seven assists and two blocks in Monday's Game 4 loss to Milwaukee.

While the Magic are up against the ropes trailing 3-1 in the series, Vucevic has been consistently productive in all four games. Monday marked his third 30-plus-point game and third double-double in the last six days.

August 22, 2020 04:08 PM
Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Posts 20 points, five boards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic recorded 20 points (8-19 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists and two steals in 35 minutes during Saturday's 121-107 Game 3 loss to the Bucks.

Vucevic had his worst performance of the series, though it wasn't bad by any means. He needs to have elite performances every game, however, if Orlando wants any chance of upsetting the No. 1 seed.

August 21, 2020 12:00 PM
Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Drops 32 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic finished with 32 points (13-23 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 4-4), 10 boards, two assists and a steal in 35 minutes of Thursday's 111-96 Game 2 loss to Milwaukee.

In two playoff games so far, Vucevic has piled up 67 points and 24 rebounds thanks to a pair of impressive double-doubles. Although he's one of the league's premier players, it's unusual to see Vucevic blow up on offense to this degree; he had only two 30-point games in the regular season.
