November 18, 2018, 9:20 pmEvan Fournier - G/F - Orlando Magic
Evan Fournier tallied 19 points on 7-of-10 shooting in a win over the Knicks on Sunday.
The Magic had another solid offensive showing as they put up 131 points in this one. Fournier's backcourt mate DJ Augustin had 12 points an seven assists on 3-of-4 shooting. Fournier added four rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block to the box score. Both have been just outside the top-100 and should hover around that range all season long
November 18, 2018, 9:16 pmJonathan Isaac - F - Orlando Magic
Jonathan Isaac scored 16 points on 6-of-9 shooting in 24 minutes in a win over the Knicks on Sunday.
He added four rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block to the stat line. He has the potential to produce like this on a nightly basis, which is why we have advised you to hang on to him despite the early struggles. Keep Isaac if you have him and buy-low if someone else owns him.
November 18, 2018, 9:13 pmNikola Vucevic - C - Orlando Magic
Nikola Vucevic had 28 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists against the Knicks on Sunday.
He added two blocks and two 3-pointers to the stat sheet. He shot 10-of-15 from the field and is shooting a career-high 55.6 percent on the season. Although he likely can’t maintain his top-10 value that he currently has and is a sell-high candidate, he should be able to provide early round value all season if you do decide to keep him.
November 18, 2018, 9:09 pmAaron Gordon - F - Orlando Magic
Aaron Gordon dropped 31 points on 13-of-17 shooting in a 131-117 win over the Knicks on Sunday.
He added one rebound, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers to the box score. Gordon has been inside the top-50 in value this season and should continue that trend regardless of whether or not the Magic continue to win games.
November 17, 2018, 10:00 pmNikola Vucevic - C - Orlando Magic
Nikola Vucevic was unstoppable in Saturday's 130-117 win over the Lakers, notching 36 points, 13 rebounds, two steals and two triples with a 15-for-23 shooting line.
Vucevic scored 16 in the third quarter, where Orlando ran away with this game. The Lakers used their bench for most of the fourth but the Magic left their starters in until the final two minutes, much to the delight of fantasy owners. Vooch is starting to look like a sell-high candidate given his current run — he's playing a little over his head — but that's not at all an order. Feel free to rock with Vucevic all season, as he's going to be a solid early-middle round player.
November 17, 2018, 9:55 pmD.J. Augustin - G - Orlando Magic
D.J. Augustin was excellent on Saturday night, going 7-of-9 from the field for a season-high 22 points to go with seven assists and two triples.
This is about as good as it gets for Augustin, who can usually float just above the 12-team cut line on the back of assists, steals and triples. He's not a must-own player but is a nice, cheap source of those stats.
November 17, 2018, 9:51 pmAaron Gordon - F - Orlando Magic
Aaron Gordon played through a sprained left ankle on Saturday and was able to deliver 12 points, six rebounds, three assists, two steals and a 3-pointer while shooting 5-of-13 from the field.
Gordon wasn't able to keep his hot streak going but fantasy owners can't complain as long as he's on the court. Hopefully his ankle injury is behind him, but you'll want to check back throughout the week for further updates — he missed last Sunday's game but played in two games this week before reappearing on the injury report this morning.
November 17, 2018, 9:48 pmJonathon Simmons - F - Orlando Magic
Jonathon Simmons logged 26 minutes on Saturday night, posting 12 points, five rebounds and six assists while going 5-of-10 from the floor.
This looks like Simmons' ceiling this year, as he simply won't get the opportunity he did last season. His stat set is heavily reliant on volume and Simmons' added playmaking duties won't be enough to overcome his points-and-boards profile. He's best left for 16-team leagues and beyond. Terrence Ross was quiet with 13 points and two threes but has been rolling this year, so make sure he's owned in all 12-team formats.
November 17, 2018, 9:45 pmJonathan Isaac - F - Orlando Magic
Jonathan Isaac played only 17 minutes on Saturday night but still established a new career-high with five blocks, adding seven points, five rebounds, an assist and a 3-pointer.
Isaac is still on a minutes limit as this was just his second game back from a six-game absence. One wonders what he would've put up against the lackadaisical Lakers had he played his regular allotment of minutes. This is why we've been telling you to hold him wherever possible, and if he's on the waiver wire in your league you need to sprint over there right now to make the add.
November 17, 2018, 6:27 pmAaron Gordon - F - Orlando Magic
Aaron Gordon (left ankle sprain) will play on Saturday.
Gordon went through a lengthy pre-game warmup and feels ready to go so he'll be out there against the Lakers. He's been playing well lately so plug him into all lineups and hope that he can get through tonight without a re-aggravation.

Aaron Gordon will determine his playing status on Saturday after going through pregame warmups.
Gordon is a game-time decision for this tilt with the Lakers. Jarell Martin is the next man up in the power forward ranks but is only a desperation streaming option.

November 17, 2018, 1:13 pmJonathan Isaac - F - Orlando Magic
Jonathan Isaac will remain on a minutes limit on Saturday night.
Isaac just returned from a six-game absence and has battled ankle injuries throughout his NBA career. We're expecting Isaac to rejoin the starting five shortly and he should be picked up in all formats, even as his numbers will be muted until those restrictions are lifted.

November 17, 2018, 12:54 pmAaron Gordon - F - Orlando Magic
Aaron Gordon (sprained left ankle) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Lakers.
Gordon has been rolling lately, though he did miss a game last weekend with the same injury. He's been able to log his usual workloads since, however, and there has been no news of a setback. If Gordon can't go the Magic will have to scramble to fill minutes at power forward, especially with Jonathan Isaac still limited. Shouldn't be a big deal with LeBron James in town or anything.

November 17, 2018, 8:56 amIsaiah Briscoe - G - Orlando Magic
The Magic have re-called Isaiah Briscoe from the G-League ahead of their game against the Lakers on Saturday.
Some thought Briscoe would get some decent run this year as the Magic are thin at point guard but that is yet to happen. He is currently the team's third string point guard, having appeared in only appeared in 5-of-15 games at 6.8 minutes per. Barring an injury, he can be ignored in fantasy.

November 14, 2018, 10:07 pmJonathan Isaac - F - Orlando Magic
Jonathan Isaac, who missed the last six games with an ankle injury, returned to action on Wednesday as the Magic edged out the Sixers 111-106 and delivered four points, six boards and one block in 16 minutes.
Isaac was on a precautionary minutes limit and should re-join the starting five in a game or so. He had his hops back as he elevated to reject Joel Embiid, no less, with his lone block of the night. He's a work in progress and maintains a high ceiling based on his per-minute averages. He's a hold that will require a bit of patience.
