    Vucevic made his first All-Star Team this past season in what was a career year across the board.

    Magic president Jeff Weltman said that re-signing Nikola Vucevic is a priority.

    Weltman said he knows Vucevic will also be a priority for many other teams so hopefully they can get something done. The Magic are eligible of offering Vucevic a max contract of five-years/$190 million while other teams can only offer four-years/$141 million, a huge difference if the Magic are willing to go that high. The 28-year old Vucevic had his best season in his 8th year in the league, posting career-highs across the board with 20.8 points, 12.0 rebounds, 3.8 assist, 1.0 steals, 1.1 blocks and 1.1 triples, making his first All-Star Team.

    Speaking at the exit interview, Nikola Vucevic said that it's too early to know where he will play next season, and it will be a mutual decision between him and management on if he stays with the Magic.

    Vucevic didn't reveal his hand, but the Magic's season just ended on Tuesday, so there hasn't been much time to think about the future. There figures to be no shortage of suitors for Vooch's services this summer as he made his first all-star team by putting up career numbers virtually across the board and got the Magic back into the playoffs.

    Nikola Vucevic shot 3-for-10 from the field for six points with seven boards and one assist in 17 minutes to fall to the Raptors on Tuesday.

    Vooch was shut down by Gasol again, as he has been for most of the series. After clearly being a stud for the Magic all season, it's a shame his season had to end this way, especially in a do-or-die situation. Vooch is still a great fantasy asset at this point in his career, but clearly not a playoff competitor just yet.

    Nikola Vucevic was smothered by Raptor double teams all night on Sunday and was limited to scoring just 11 points on 5-of-14 shooting as he ended up forcing some shots in traffic.

    The Raptors have really dialed in and had Vooch's number all series, a smart game plan considering he's been the Magic's best player in the 2018-19 regular season. He added five rebounds, two assists and one steal to complete an overall underwhelming stat line in what was a critical, near-do-or-die game. As long as the Raptors keep the Montenegrin big man out of his groove, the Magic's chances for a reverse-sweep of this series are likely going to go up in a puff of smoke.

    Nikola Vucevic finally looked like himself on Friday night as he dropped 22 points, 14 rebounds, six assists, three blocks and one steal as the Magic fell 98-93 to the Raptors at home.

    Vucevic broke out of his playoff slump, but unfortunately Orlando dealt with poor shooting nights from DJ Augustin (3-for-7) and Evan Fournier (1-for-12) that ultimately sunk them on their home floor.

    Nikola Vucevic shot 3-for-7 from the field for six points with six boards, three assists and one block in 25 minutes on Tuesday.

    Vooch has now begun the playoffs shooting just 6-for-21 from the floor for 17 points. Marc Gasol has handled him for much of the series and has done a fine job slowing him down. Game 3 is on Friday in Orlando.

    Nikola Vucevic was able to put up 11 points, eight rebounds, three assists and one block in Saturday's win over the Raptors.

    Vucevic struggled with his shot tonight, only making 3-of-14 and was obviously bothered by the former Defensive Player of the Year in Marc Gasol. Despite the bad game on his end, his teammates were able to pick up the slack and they managed to squeak away with a game-winner from D.J. Augustin.

    Nikola Vucevic (stomach virus) will not have any restrictions for the first game of the playoffs on Saturday against Toronto.

    This was fully expected for Vucevic, who missed the team's season finale. He'll have to deal with Marc Gasol, Serge Ibaka and possibly some Pascal Siakam in the first round. The Magic need a miracle to make it past the Raptors.

    Nikola Vucevic will be ready to roll on Saturday against the Raptors despite a stomach virus that kept him out of the regular season finale.

    This was never really in question for Vucevic. The Magic will need a herculean effort from Vuc to make noise in this series so he was always going to be on the floor.

    Steve Clifford said that Nikola Vucevic went through an individual workout today and is on track to be fully healthy by Game 1 against the Raptors on Saturday.

    No stomach bug is going to keep Vucevic from playing in his first playoff game since his rookie season as a member of the Sixers. Vucevic put up career highs virtually across the board and the Magic will need more of that if they want to pull off a first-round upset.

    Nikola Vucevic sat out Wednesday's finale due to illness but fantasy owners can't complain as the big man delivered top-15 value on the back of 20.8 points, 12.0 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 1.0 steals, 1.1 blocks and 1.1 3-pointers per game on .518 from the field.

    The points, rebounds and assists were career-highs for Vucevic, while the steals, blocks and 3-pointers all tied previous personal bests and the efficiency was the highest mark he's posted since he began taking threes regularly. Vucevic moves into top-10/5 value on a total basis with 80 games played, and he was easily the best player selected in the middle-rounds this year. It's not often that a reliable top-50 player can blow expectations away, but Vooch did the trick. He earned his first career All-Star nod this season and will now try his hand at playoff basketball.

    Nikola Vucevic (stomach virus) will not take the floor in Wednesday’s season finale against the Hornets.

    Vucevic has come down with some sort of stomach virus today and will be held out of the Magic's last game of the season. It must be serious as the Magic could still move up in the playoff standings. Look for Khem Birch to play big minutes in the finale as he will start in Nikola's place. Amile Jefferson could also see the floor tonight.

    The Magic have added Nikola Vucevic to their injury report for Wednesday’s game against the Hornets, listing him as questionable due to a stomach virus.

    The Magic have secured a playoff berth and it only remains to be determined whether they will end up as the 6th, 7th or 8th seed. If Vucevic can’t play tonight, it could mean extended minutes for Khem Birch and Amile Jefferson.

    Nikola Vucevic's career season will feature a postseason appearance after the Magic topped the Celtics by a 116-108 score on Sunday, with Vucevic chipping in 25 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, a steal, two blocks and a 3-pointer.

    Vucevic carried Orlando early as they waited for their perimeter players to heat up, and he finished this one as a plus-19 in his 34 minutes of action. The playoff appearance is well-deserved for this team and a nice feather in the cap for Vucevic, who has been putting up huge games night in and night out for this resurgent squad. Aaron Gordon also had a steal and two blocks tonight to go with 14 points and seven rebounds.
