Nik Vučević injury: Orlando Magic big man to return to lineup against Toronto Raptors

Nik Vučević - Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The third-year center missed Orlando's last 12 games due to a concussion.

Nik Vučević will return to the Orlando Magic's lineup Wednesday against the Toronto Raptors, the team announced via its media-only Twitter account. According to Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel, Vučević will be on a minutes restriction. The third-year center had missed Orlando's previous 12 games due to a concussion he sustained in the Magic's loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on January 6th.

In those games without its leading rebounder, Orlando corralled just 46.8 percent of available boards, ranking 26th in the league over that span. The Magic went 2-10 in Vučević's absence.

Vučević is averaging 13 points, 11 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.1 blocks per game in the 2013/14 season. He's shooting 51 percent from the field.

Tipoff between Orlando and Toronto is set for 7 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida.
