Nikola Vucevic missed Sunday’s practice with a right Achilles flare up.
This doesn’t bode well for Vucevic as the Magic are playing for a good pick in the draft and sitting him only helps their chances of losing. He played his last set of back-to-back games and it caused his tendon to flare up, which makes his durability pretty unreliable. The Magic only have three games next week, so if he misses any of them it severely hurts his value. He should be considered questionable for their game against the Sixers on Monday. If he does sit, expect Bismack Biyombo to get an uptick in usage and own the front court.
