The Magic are about to be seriously tested with their wing depth evaporating in the last two weeks. Fournier now joins Terrence Ross on the sidelines and there’s no real natural help on the roster. The Magic could opt to go with two point guard looks and increase D.J. Augustin‘s role, or slide Jonathon Simmons to the two and let Arron Afflalo soak up some minutes at small forward. They could also turn to rookie Jonathan Isaac (an increasingly appealing stash) but he’s nursing an injury of his own with no return date in sight. Augustin is the short-term add while Isaac is the best long-term play. Everyone involved is on the deep league radar for the length of Fournier’s absence.
