Arron Afflalo, Nik Vučević injuries: Key Magic players to miss Bulls game, according to report

Arron Afflalo - Ed Szczepanski-USA TODAY Sports

Orlando will play Wednesday without its leading scorer or leading rebounder.

Neither Arron Afflalo or Nik Vučević will play for the Orlando Magic on Wednesday when they open a three-game homestand against the Chicago Bulls, reports Danielle Maslany of OrlandoMagic.com. Afflalo has a sprained right foot, while Vučević continues to go through the league's protocols after sustaining a concussion on the Magic's recent five-game roadtrip.

Orlando played its last two games without Afflalo or Vučević and lost both by a combined 45 points. The Magic have dropped their last eight games overall. As Orlando Pinstriped Post documented Monday, the offense has struggled during that losing streak, and playing without Vučević and Afflalo has taken its toll.

With 20.8 points per game, Afflalo leads the Magic in scoring. He also contributes 4.4 rebounds and 3.9 assists. Vučević, meanwhile, leads the team in rebounding with 11 boards per game to go with 13 points and 1.9 assists.

In its previous meeting with Chicago, the Magic pulled off an 83-82 upset behind 23 points from Afflalo. Wednesday's game, the first of a three-game homestand for the Magic, tips at 7 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida.
