No timetable for Magic center Nik Vucevic

The Orlando Magic lost to the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday by the score of 101-90.  It was the Magic's 11th loss in their last twelve games to move them to 11-31, last place in the Southeast Division. The Magic once again played without center Nikola Vucevic, who has missed eight consecutive games with a concussion.

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.
