Magic's Vucevic out with bone bruise in right knee

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) An MRI shows that Orlando Magic center Nik Vucevic has a bone bruise to his right knee.

He hurt it in the second half of Orlando's 119-114 overtime loss at Houston on Wednesday night.

The team said Thursday his return to the court would depend on how he responds to treatment.

Vucevic is averaging 15.8 points and eight rebounds per game this season.

He will sit out when Orlando hosts Toronto on Friday night.
