During Monday night’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers, Orlando Magic center Nikola Vucevic went up for a block against Clippers center Blake Griffin, when he got upended and tumbled head first onto the court.

Vucevic stayed down on the court holding his head while he was attended to.

As it turns out, Vucevic suffered a concussion during the fall and will now need to go through the NBA’s concussion protocol before making a return to the court. In the meantime, he will sit on the sidelines and John Denton of the team’s official website says that Vucevic could miss up to a week.

Vucevic is currently averaging 13 points and 11 rebounds a game for the Magic this season.
