After being listed as questionable earlier in the day, the Magic have updated their injury report to reflect the fact that Aaron Gordon (calf) and Evan Fournier (ankle) are now doubtful for Friday’s game.
With Gordon unlikely to play, that will be five of the last six in which Orlando has played without their bright young star. Mario Hezonja will hope to keep the good times rolling and deep leaguers would be wise to use him before the minutes dry up. Fournier’s continued absence will result in a roulette wheel where D.J. Augustin, Shelvin Mack and Wesley Iwundu alternate workloads and fantasy-worthy lines. It’s a situation to avoid if possible. Luckily, Jonathan Isaac remains questionable after picking up an ankle injury last night. He’s the most appealing fill-in here, as his defensive prowess gives him top-150 upside. The rookie is a very worthwhile stash, though he’ll need some time to shake off the rust after missing 17 games with an ankle sprain.
