Nikola Vučević injury: Concussion rules Magic center out for Wednesday, according to report

Nik Vučević - Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Orlando's budding star center won't play Wednesday when the Magic visit the Bobcats, and he hopes he won't miss the rest of the season.

Nikola Vučević, who is dealing with a concussion, didn't travel with the Orlando Magic for Wednesday's game against the Charlotte Bobcats, meaning Orlando won't have its double-double machine for that matchup of the league's worst teams, as Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports. Vučević "expects" to return before the Magic's season ends on April 17th, according to Robbins.

Vučević is posting per-game averages of 12.4 points; 11.5 rebounds, good for fourth in the league; and one blocked shot in the 2012/13 season. He has missed Orlando's last three games, all losses, due to the concussion and some flu-like symptoms. The Magic have lost seven straight games overall.

Rookie big man Kyle O'Quinn has started twice in Vučević's absence, averaging 11.5 points and 7.5 rebounds.
