Nikola Vučević injury: Magic center to return for Hawks game, according to report

After a five-game absence due to a concussion, Nik Vučević will return to the Orlando Magic's lineup on Saturday against the Atlanta Hawks, according to Magic Basketball Online. John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com says the team will limit Vučević's minutes.

Vučević is averaging 12.4 points, 11.5 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and one block per game, shooting 52.2 percent from the floor. He was the only player to appear in each of Orlando's first 62 games, making him to closest thing the Magic have to an ironman.

Kyle O'Quinn started in Vučević's place for four of the five games the USC product missed. O'Quinn posted 12.5 points, 7.5 boards, and 2.5 assists in those games, shooting 66.7 percent from the floor.
