The visiting Magic prevailed 103-102 over the Nets.

The seven-year veteran, who has started 34 games at shooting guard, was experiencing pain in his foot before the game but decided to play. He ran off the court after fracturing the fifth metatarsal 2 minutes into the first quarter and was replaced by Travis Best. The Nets said there was no timetable for his return.

Vaughn was averaging 5.3 points and 1.9 assists for the New Jersey, which began the night in ninth place in the Eastern Conference, a half-game behind Philadelphia and a half-game ahead of Orlando.

The Magic were without Grant Hill, whose left shin contusion flared up during Friday night's loss at Washington. He was replaced in the starting lineup by Stacey Augmon.
