The Orlando Magic head into tonight's game against the Washington Wizards coming off a 105-96 win over the Sacramento Kings on Saturday. Tobias Harris lead the Magic with 27 points on 10-of-17 shooting from the floor. At 9-14 on the season, the Magic sit in fourth place in the Southeast Division. There is some good news on the injury front, as Nikola Vucevic is improving from a back injury, but is still questionable for tonight's game

John Denton, who covers the Magic at, tweeted the following on Vucevic's status.
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.

Vucevic, in his fourth NBA season, is averaging 18.6 points, 11.7 rebounds and 1.1 blocked shots per game this season. Vucevic, who has played for the 76ers and Magic, has become one of the better centers in the league. He has career averages of 12 points and 9.9 rebounds in 204 games.
