Vucevic made the Magic’s trip to Toronto and passed all concussion protocols. He has missed the last 12 games because of the injury and the Magic have posted a 2-10 record during that span.
“It’ll feel good. It’s been a while,” Vucevic told Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel. “Just being out there with my teammates, finally, and play and compete will be fun. I missed it. It was no fun to be out of the game and just watch.”
The Magic posted an 0-6 record with Vucevic out earlier in the season with an ankle injury, meaning they are just 2-16 when he’s out and 10-18 when he plays.
Vucevic will start, but his minutes will be limited.
Vucevic has played very well when he’s been on the court. On the season, the third-year big man is averaging 13.0 points, 11.0 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.1 blocks per game.
The Raptors and Magic will tip off at 7:00 pm EST.
