• Coach Frank Vogel said Mario Hezonja has earned his spot in the rotation even when the Magic are healthy.

    Aaron Gordon (hip) and Jonathan Isaac (ankle) are set to return soon and both play positions that Hezonja is currently averaging 30.9 minutes at over the last seven games. Vogel will move the 23-year-old to small forward behind current starter Jonathon Simmons and he will still log time behind Gordon at power forward, but will that be enough for him to be a fantasy asset? 20 minutes per game are what owners can likely bank on and that makes him a hold in 14-team leagues. The Magic are a tanking candidate who could choose to play Hezonja extended time to both develop him and insure losing so there is upside for more time. 12-team leaguers would be wise to hold onto him until we see how the rotation shakes out.
