Brian K. Schimtz, NBA columnist for the Orlando Sentinel, tweeted the following on Vucevic's status.
Magic C Nik Vucevic (concussion), by phone from Orlando, “I’m feeling better, but no time on when I can play. It’s in the doctor’s hands."

The Magic are using a three-guard, two-forward lineup in Vucevic's absence. Glenn Davis and Tobias Harris are manning the front court, with Andrew Nicholson, Kyle O'Quinn and Maurice Harkless coming off the bench. Expect the same rotation to continue until Vucevic comes back.
Vucevic is in his third NBA season out of USC. After a rookie season in which he averaged 5.5 points and 4.8 rebounds per game, Vucevic has become one of the best centers in the Eastern Conference. In 28 games this season, he is averaging 13 points and 11 rebounds per game.
