Magic's Nik Vučević to miss Knicks game with illness, according to report

Nik Vučević - USA TODAY Sports

The Orlando center, who had started each of the Magic's games in 2012/13, has an illness and won't play Wednesday.

The Orlando Magic will be without starting center Nik Vučević for Wednesday's game against the New York Knicks, reports John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com, due to illness. Vučević had started each of Orlando's games in the 2012/13 season, averaging 12.4 points, 11.5 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and one blocked shot.

Vučević left the locker room to shoot around before the game, Denton says, but was unable to finish his shooting as "illness got the best of him."

In Vučević's place, Tobias Harris will shift from power forward to center, Maurice Harkless from small forward to power forward, and Arron Afflalo from shooting guard to small forward. E'Twaun Moore will move from the bench to the starting five, sharing the backcourt with point guard Jameer Nelson.
