UPDATE: Nikola Vucevic did miss Thursday's game against the Cavs due to the ankle injury, however it's not too serious and he will be listed as day-to-day moving forward.

"At first, I thought it would be a pretty bad one, the way it was hurting," Vucevic told the Orlando Sentinel. "But, then, I guess all the treatment we did, all the icing and stuff -- I spent New Year's icing it -- it was worth it. When I woke up in the morning, I was kind of hesitant to step on it to see how it feels, but it felt pretty good. It was painful, but not as bad as I thought it would be."

Jason Maxiell was part of the starting lineup on Thursday and he will stay in that spot until Vucevic returns.
