Nikola Vucevic took a nasty fall in the third quarter against the Clippers on Monday night and was indeed diagnosed with a concussion. This means Vucevic will have to go through the league-mandated concussion protocols.
It is certain Vucevic will miss Wednesday's game against the Trail Blazers and it seems very likely he will miss Friday's game against the Kings. The likely prognosis is that Vucevic will miss the next week, a very tough break after Vucevic missed two games with a sprained ankle. Vucevic looked like he was regaining his timing and his comfort in 19 minutes of play against the Clippers. He was just one for nine from the floor and grabed eight rebounds.
David Steele of Fox Sports Florida told Jake Chapman on Magic DriveTime on 740 The Game in Orlando on Tuesday that Vucevic is likely to miss a week. That seems to be the general timeline given for Vucevic from various reports.
The NBA's required concussion protocols will preach patience and keep him off the court until he is ready to return and the concussion symptoms have completely dissipated.no comments
