Vucevic turned in 11 points (5-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt), 10 rebounds and four assists across 31 minutes in Wednesday's 99-94 loss to the Trail Blazers.

EDGE Analysis

The 27-year-old big man double-doubled for the first time since Nov. 5 and scored in double digits for the sixth time in the last seven contests. Vucevic has seen some scoring fluctuations since averaging an impressive 20.7 points in seven October contests, as he's posting just 14.5 points per game in November. However, his floor-spacing skills and strong work on the glass continue to afford him plenty of upside and render him a Top 15 option at the position in all formats.

Vucevic scored 20 points (7-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding five rebounds, four assists and a steal in 27 minutes during Monday's 110-100 loss to the Warriors.

EDGE Analysis

His transformation into a stretch big continues, and Vucevic is now averaging 1.8 three-pointers a game while still keeping his field-goal percentage above 50 percent. If he can somehow maintain that balance, his fantasy value will more than withstand the loss of rebounds that have accompanied his shift away from the basket on the offensive end of the court.

Vucevic produced 19 points (6-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and one block across 26 minutes in Friday's 128-112 victory over the Suns.

EDGE Analysis

Vucevic looked good again Friday, helping lead the Magic to a comfortable victory. He has been excellent to start the season, playing a big role in the teams' hot start. His rebounding numbers have fallen slightly, however his improvement from the three-point line has been nothing short of amazing. Along with Aaron Gordon, his perimeter scoring has been a pleasant surprise for owners, something that shows no sign of slowing down as we move into the second month.

Vucevic posted 24 points (9-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, four steals, one assist and one block across 33 minutes during Wednesday's 112-99 win over the Knicks.

EDGE Analysis

Vucevic collected a season-high four steals Wednesday -- a mark he failed to reach last season. While his performance in that regard may have been an anomaly, his offensive effort was on par with what we've come to expect from him this season. He also broke a three-game cold stretch where he was scoring just 11.3 points per game on 40.5 percent shooting.

Vucevic scored 13 points (6-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt) while adding 10 rebounds, seven assists and two steals in 32 minutes during Sunday's 104-88 loss to the Celtics.

EDGE Analysis

It's the veteran center's fourth double-double on the year, while the seven assists were a season high. Vucevic's efforts to add three-point range to his arsenal have cost him some rebounding opportunities, but he's already drained 17 threes through 10 games after managing only 23 in 75 games last season.

Vucevic amassed 20 points (9-17 FG), eight rebounds and three assists in a 115-99 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Vucevic has seen a downtick in his scoring over the last week or so, as this is the first time he's reached the 20-point plateau since October 21. What has been a nice surprise are the assists though, as this marks his fifth game with at least three assists.

Vucevic finished with 41 points (17-22 FG, 6-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 12 rebounds and three assists across 35 minutes during Friday's 126-121 loss to the Nets.

EDGE Analysis

Vucevic took advantage of the lack of talented centers on Brooklyn's roster, dropping an efficient 41 points. He also showed off his improved three-point shot, dropping six of the sort. If he can continue shooting well from long range and bruising in the post, he'll remain a tough cover for opposing teams.

Vucevic recorded 19 points (6-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 13 rebounds, two steals, two blocks and one assist across 32 minutes during Wednesday's 116-109 win over the Heat.

EDGE Analysis

Vucevic is being encouraged by the coaching staff to shoot more threes this season, which we saw come to fruition during Wednesday's regular-season opener. While he failed to make one, if he can start knocking them down at a respectable clip, it will add another layer to his fantasy value.

Vucevic (rest) will start during Friday's preseason finale against the Cavaliers, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Vucevic got the team's previous game off for rest. Coach Frank Vogel seemingly wants Vucevic to get a tune-up game in before the regular season.

Vucevic will sit out Tuesday's preseason game against the Spurs for rest, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Magic rested Bismack Biyombo in their last preseason game, so they'll now flip the two and give Vucevic the night off for rest in anticipation of the upcoming regular-season grind. Vucevic should be back in the lineup come Friday's preseason finale against the Cavaliers, though Biyombo will draw the start at center in the meantime.
