The good news for the Orlando Magic is that center Nikola Vucevic’s knee injury isn’t deemed serious. The bad news, however, is that the multi-talented 7-footer won’t be available on Friday night when the Magic (1-4) do battle with yet another playoff power in the Toronto Raptors (5-0). Tipoff at the Amway Center is just after 7 p.m., and the Magic will be sans their most consistent player over the past three-plus seasons.

On Thursday, a MRI and a subsequent evaluation determined that Vucevic suffered a bone bruise in his right knee when he went down in the third quarter of Orlando’s 119-114 overtime loss to the Rockets in Houston. Vucevic has already been ruled out of Friday’s home game and his return to practice and game action will depend on how he responds to treatment in the coming days.

[Tyronn] Lue is scheduled to interview for the job on Tuesday, according to multiple sources. One has to wonder if he thinks his meeting could just be a formality and/or insurance in case former Houston Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni, whose job it is to lose, doesn’t accept the job.

Sources have been saying for weeks that the job is [Mike] D’Antoni’s to turn down. They say he’s the guy the ownership group wants. One source even said the 69-year-old would have to bomb his interview with the Sixers owners not to be offered the job.

Jerami Grant wants to be back with the Denver Nuggets next season. Whether that happens may be up to Nuggets president of basketball operations Tim Connelly.

Grant, who is expected to opt out of his player option, according to a league source, made himself invaluable throughout the Nuggets’ postseason run. When the Nuggets traded a first-round pick last summer for Grant, they hoped he’d provide the defensive versatility that he ultimately did.
