Nikola Vucevic (groin) will not play on Friday against the Cavs.
Vucevic injury news is going to come at a premium as the Magic don’t necessarily facilitate that info very well. They’re obviously not going to push him to return so this is really about whether or not he heals fast enough to make an impact. Owners shouldn’t drop him just yet, but if you’re fighting for your playoff life you already know the caveat to that advice. Jason Smith and Dewayne Dedmon will absorb the center minutes and with the flurry of four-game weeks ahead you might consider Smith as a flier in a deeper format.
