The back issue cost Vucevic six games, but he's been given the green light to return to the starting lineup after making it through a full shooting workout prior Friday's tilt. His minutes may be scaled back a bit immediately upon his return, but Vucevic is averaging 18.6 points, 11.7 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 35.4 minutes so far this season, so most owners will want him active.

Vucevic (back) will likely return to the court either Saturday or Monday after he did a full shooting workout prior to Friday's game, the Orlando Sentinel's Joshua Robbins reports.

He missed his sixth straight game Friday with a lower-back injury, but owners should be able to deploy the Magic's starting center next week in weekly leagues, and possibly as soon as Saturday against the Hawks in daily formats. Kyle O'Quinn has been starting at center in his place.

Vucevic (back) is listed as questionable to play Friday, the Orlando Sentinel reports. He had encouraging words for the media, insisting "[My back] feels better. I did some work. Each day, I did more and more, and it reacted well. So it's heading in the right direction."

Vucevic was seen shooting in full practice gear during Thursday's practice session and during Friday's morning shootaround at Philips Arena.

Vucevic has not played in more than a week due to back spasms, and coach Jacque Vaughn said Tuesday that he's yet to speak to Vucevic about his status for Wednesday's matchup. An update will likely come later in the day Tuesday or following Wednesday's shootaround.
