Magic's Vucevic, Heat's Battier sit out


Posted Jan 4, 2014 7:19 PM

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Orlando center Nik Vucevic and Miami forward Shane Battier have been ruled out for the Magic's home game against the Heat.

Vucevic will miss his second straight game due to a sprained left ankle. He also missed time earlier in the season with a left ankle injury.

Battier is out Saturday with a sore quadriceps.

Heat guard Dwyane Wade has been resting at least one game of back-to-backs recently, but said he will start against the Magic.
