News: Vucevic (Achilles) will be sidelined for the remainder of this season, the Magic's official website reports. Impact: Vucevic's sore Achilles kept him out of Orlando's most recent four games and will now prevent him from playing in the Magic's final three outings of the season. A precautionary decision, shutting Vucevic down figures to allow Dewayne Dedmon to continue at starting center. Just 23 years old, Vucevic averaged 14.2 points and 11 rebounds in only 57 games played this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Vucevic (Achilles) remains a game-time decision for Sunday's contest against the Nets, the Orlando Sentinel reports. Impact: The Magic didn't hold a morning shootaround so an update on Vucevic may not come until shortly before tipoff. He's always a double-double threat when he sees any amount of playing time and could be a valuable play if he does indeed see the court.(RotoWire, )

News: Vucevic (Achilles) will not play Friday against Washington, the Magic's official website reports. Impact: Vucevic is slated to miss a fourth straight game due to his sore Achilles on Friday; however, he will travel with Orlando on their upcoming two-game road trip following Friday's home game. As such, the center stands a chance of playing either Sunday in Brooklyn or Monday in Chicago. Until his playing status is confirmed for those contests, expect rookie Dewayne Dedmon to continue at the starting five position.(RotoWire, )

News: Vucevic (Achilles) will miss Wednesday's game against the Nets, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports. Impact: Vucevic was originally scratched last Friday with a sore Achilles and hasn't played since. The center had become a big part of the Magic's lineup, averaging 15.8 points and 12.3 boards in his last six games. In his absence, Dewayne Dedmon and Andrew Nicholson have seen an increase in minutes. They will likely continue to do so until Vucevic returns, at which point he'll likely take a majority of his minutes back.(RotoWire, )

News: Vucevic is missing his seventh consecutive game with a sore left Achilles. Impact: Vucevic will be back in 2014-15. (STATS, 00:24am)

News: Vucevic will sit out Saturday versus the Timberwolves due to discomfort in his left Achilles, the Magic's official site reports. Impact: The absence marks Vucevic's 20th of the season, allowing Dewayne Dedmon to man center in his place. Don't expect much more than the 15-to-20 minute range for Dedmon, while Vucevic will hold questionable status for the Magic's next outing Wednesday versus the Nets.(RotoWire, )

News: Vucevic, who was scratched from Friday's game with a sore Achilles, said he's not sure how or when he sustained the injury, and it's unclear, if he'll miss any further games, the Orlando Sentinel reports. Impact: Coach Jacque Vaughn said the team was being cautious with Vucevic, but of course there's speculation that his absence is related to the Magic's push for a bottom three record in the league for draft lottery purposes, so the severity of his injury could be moot. Still, owners will want to monitor his status leading up to Saturday's 7 PM ET tipoff against the T-Wolves and should consider him day-to-day.(RotoWire, )
