The Magic announced Tuesday evening that point guard Jameer Nelson (foot) and center Nikola Vucevic (ankle) will miss Tuesday night's game versus the Sixers.

Nelson sprained his left foot in last Wednesday's 105-94 win over the Sixers and has missed Orlando's last two games.

Nelson is averaging 11.7 points and 6.1 assists on 30.1 minutes per night in 15 games.

Former Sixer Vucevic sprained his ankle in the Magic's 98-80 loss Monday to the Wizards. Vucevic is averaging 14.7 points and 10.9 rebounds on the year. Jason Maxiell will get the start in his place.

In four games against the team that drafted him 16th overall two years ago, Vucevic has averaged 14.0 points per game and 16.5 rebounds.
