Nikola Vucevic double-doubled with 24 points (11-for-21 FGs) and 10 boards on Monday in a win over the Hornets, adding four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.
Vucevic continues to put up numbers nearly as amazing as those from last season. He's traded some field goal percentage in for increased threes, and he's as safe as ever as a second-tier center that can do it all.

Nikola Vucevic scored 13 points on 6-of-19 shooting and grabbed 13 boards in a 109-95 loss to the Warriors on Saturday.
Vucevic struggled from the floor on Saturday, but owners can give him a break as he's posting second-round per game value so far this season. Vucevic is a double-double factory that averages 1.7 threes, 0.9 steals and 0.9 blocks.

Nikola Vucevic scored 22 points on 8-of-13 shooting to go with nine rebounds, four assists, a steal and three triples on Thursday.
Vucevic was his usual All-Star self on Thursday, but the Magic got blown out of the water by a much better team. They were on the second night of a back-to-back and Vooch still provided first-round value so we're not complaining over here.

Nikola Vucevic led the Magic in scoring on Monday with 26 points to go with a game-high 15 boards while adding two assists, three blocks and two triples.
Vucevic is back and firing on all cylinders. The big man should be a lock for first-round production whenever he touches the floor.

Nikola Vucevic double-doubled with 18 points on 8-of-21 shooting, adding 13 rebounds, three dimes, two 3s and two steals in Friday's 94-98 loss to the Suns.
Vooch should be a solid bet to finish as a top-20 talent by season's end. That said, he could be a sit-risk should the Magic fail to be in contention for the playoffs.

Nikola Vucevic had a field day in Wednesday's 123-89 blowout win over the Wizards, exploding for 29 points on 12-of-20 shooting.
Vooch was a beast, adding nine boards, two assists, two 3s, two steals and a block in his 28 minutes on the floor to round out his line for the night. It was a favorable matchup, so the big line was in line with expectations. He's someone you should expect to see in fantasy's top-15 after everything is sead an done this season.

Nikola Vucevic scored 11 points on 3-of-12 shooting while grabbing a season-high 24 rebounds to go with four assists and a 3-pointer in Monday's 101-89 win over the Nets.
Vucevic took advantage of the brick factory tonight and grabbed a season-high in rebounds thanks to the Nets shooting .333 from the field. He was also able to grab five offensive rebounds because of how poorly the Magic shot as well. Vooch didn't score well today, but that was an outlier as he'll be relied upon more than ever now with Jonathan Isaac out.

Nikola Vucevic double-doubled on Saturday with 22 points, 13 rebounds, three blocks and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes.
Vucevic filled up the stat sheet despite the tough matchup against Rudy Gobert. Vucevic is now top-20 per game in 9-cat and is rolling since returning from his ankle injury. Vucevic should produce second-round value or better moving forward and will need to be relied on more with Jonathan Isaac out for extended time.

Mohamed Bamba (right ankle sprain) will be available for Monday's game.
Bamba last played on December 23. He rarely cracks 20 minutes in a single game but can provide blocks for owners in deeper leagues. With Nikola Vucevic and Bamba back, Khem Birch has minimal value.

Nikola Vucevic had an outstanding fantasy game on Saturday night, scoring 21 points while filling up the stat sheet with eight rebounds, four assists, three steals, two blocks and five 3-pointers.
Vucevic actually shot better from deep in this one, going 2-for-6 from inside the arc. We wouldn't expect that shot profile to stick but it's always fun to see the big man showcase his range. After a big speed bump in the form of an ankle injury, Vucevic is back inside the top-40 and climbing. He should land near his second-round ADP when it's all said and done.

Nikola Vucevic tallied 16 points on 7-of-16 shooting with 12 boards, two 3s and seven assists in Friday's 98-97 win over the Sixers.
Vooch played well considering his matchup against Joel Embiid. He's been a top-40 value over the last two weeks but has been dragged down by his .682 shooting from the stripe. Vucevic still has a top-20, top-15 ceiling but will need some time round back into form.

Nikola Vucevic scored 21 points on 9-of-17 shooting while adding seven rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two triples on Monday.
Vucevic hasn't missed a beat since returning from his injury and it looks like he's back on track to smash his ADP.

Nikola Vucevic produced an elite line in Friday's 103-118 loss to the Blazers, finishing with 23 points (9-for-20 shooting), 12 rebounds, six steals, two blocks and an assist.
Vucevic returned from an 11-game absence this past Sunday, and looks no worse for the wear with this excellent production. Now that he's back and healthy, consider Vucevic a top-30 option.
December 18, 2019, 11:37 pmNikola VucevicC, Orlando Magic
Nikola Vucevic dropped 20 points on 7-of-16 shooting, collecting seven rebounds, five assists and a block on Wednesday night.
Vucevic is sitting right around the top-30 so far this season. If Jonathan Isaac misses any time, Vucevic might see an uptick in his already high-usage.

Nikola Vucevic was bottled up against the Jazz on Tuesday, shooting 4-of-15 from the field en route to 12 points, 11 rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers.
Vucevic went 2-of-8 from the 3-point line, which might have just as much to do with the inefficiency as the Utah defense. It's expected that he'll play in the SEGABABA tomorrow despite just returning from an ankle injury, but you might want to check back just to be safe.
