While Evan Fournier did some core work and free throw shooting at Thursday’s practice, he still hasn’t resumed running and there’s no word on his status for Friday.
The fact that he isn’t running puts him on the doubtful side of the spectrum. Still, he appears to be inching closer to a return and has missed only two games so far. Owners have to be hoping that he’s a quick healer, as the Magic will give him all the work he can handle. They’ve turned to different solutions with their roster thinned out in a bad way, and guys like Arron Afflalo, Mario Hezonja and Wesley Iwundu have all seen spikes in their minutes. Fournier will hurt them all when he returns, not that they’re great options anyway.
