Magic center Nikola Vucevic could spend the All-Star break wherever he wants, but he plans to remain in Orlando instead of going to some exotic locale. His intention: to prepare for his first game back since he fractured his left hand on Dec. 23. The Magic’s All-Star break will begin after their game Wednesday, and they won’t play again until Feb. 22, when they host the New York Knicks at Amway Center. “I expect to be back against the Knicks, so I’ll stay in Orlando during the break and keep working on my game,” Vucevic said Monday night. “Then we’ll have two or three good practices before we play the Knicks, so I think it’ll be good for me to use that extra time to work more on my game.” On Monday, Vucevic missed his 22nd straight game when the Magic played the Chicago Bulls at United Center.
