John Denton, who covers the Magic at OrlandoMagic.com, tweeted the following on Vucevic's status.
.@OrlandoMagic C @NikolaVucevic said his back is making progress and feeling better. But won't practice today and questionable on Wed Night.Vucevic has missed the last four games and hasn't played since scoring 18 points in 34 minutes against the Phoenix Suns on November 30. Expect Kyle O'Quinn to continue to fill in at center in Vucevic's absence. O'Quinn is averaging 9.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.3 blocked shots per game this season.
