Magic’s Nikola Vucevic Out for 2-Months with Broken Left Hand
After losing Terrence Ross to a dreadful injury, the Orlando Magic have suffered yet another tough blow.
Quite literally, following a strong and promising start to the campaign, everything has fallen apart for the Magic, and in a hurry. Orlando has lost 18 of their past 21-games, and now have lost their starting big man Nikola Vucevic for the next 6-8 weeks who will undergo surgery on a broken left hand. Vucevic has been averaging 17.8-points and 9.6-rebounds per contest for the Magic this season.
Sources: Orlando center Nikola Vucevic is expected to undergo surgery on his fractured left hand and be sidelined 6-to-8 weeks. Vucevic is averaging 17.8 points and 9.6 rebounds this season for Magic.

Factor in that Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon, and rookie Jonathan Isaac have all been hampered by injury. Things can clearly not get any better for the Orlando Magic as the holiday season approaches. May 2018 start off on a better foot for the franchise who according to their owner is destined to win at least one championship by 2030.
