Khem Birch started in place of Jonathan Isaac on Friday night but it didn't go well from a statistical perspective with just two points, one rebound, two assists and a block in 25 minutes.
Birch is not a great fit next to Nikola Vucevic, though he was Orlando's defensive anchor in the second unit last season and might get an opportunity to work out the kinks. Either way he'd only pop as a deep-league option for blocks. The other Isaac alternatives are also pretty unappealing for fantasy GMs, with Wes Iwundu picking up seven points, six rebounds and a steal in 22 minutes and the rest of the work getting spread around Orlando's previous rotation. Despite a major injury, there won't be a lot of moves to make for fantasy players.
