Magic at Bobcats: Nik Vučević returns to starting lineup, according to report

Nik Vučević - Rob Foldy-USA TODAY Sports

The center had missed Orlando's last four games due to a sprained ankle.

Nik Vučević will return to the Orlando Magic's starting lineup Wednesday against the Charlotte Bobcats, reports John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com. Vučević had missed Orlando's last four games with a sprained left ankle he sustained when he stepped on a cameraman in Orlando's loss to the Washington Wizards on December 2nd.

At 10.9 rebounds per game, Vučević leads the Magic in that department while scoring 14.7 points to rank second on the team. He also adds 2.5 assists and 2.2 combined steals and blocked shots.

In Vučević's four-game absence, the Magic grabbed only 40.2 percent of all available rebounds, according to NBA.com/stats. Orlando lost each of those games, and has dropped six straight games overall.

Orlando tips off against Charlotte at 7 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida.
