    Evan Fournier (back spasms) will play Thursday vs. Heat along with teammate Wes Iwundu (general soreness).

    The Magic appear to be at full strength ahead of the regular season. Fournier is someone to look at towards the end of drafts in the hopes that he will have a bounce-back season. Iwundu will likely not produce fantasy value outside of very deep leagues as he is a deep rotation piece.

    Coach Steve Clifford hasn't decided whether Evan Fournier (back spams) will play in the preseason finale Thursday night.

    He adds that even if Fournier plays, he'll be on limited minutes. Back spasms are always a concern because they tend to linger, but it looks like the Magic are just exercising caution with their starting shooting guard. Fournier is a low-ceiling option who should provide serviceable scoring, threes, and assists numbers in the back end of drafts.

    Coach Steve Clifford says Nikola Vucevic and Terrence Ross are expected to play in the preseason finale against the Heat on Thursday.

    The two were dealing with mild ankle sprains, but should be good to go for tonight's final preseason game. Continue to draft Vucevic and Ross as you normally would.

    Evan Fournier (back spasms) participated in a portion of Tuesday's scrimmage.

    Fournier looks to be over his back issues and should be good to go for opening day next week. Fournier is a late-round target for assists and threes.

    Evan Fournier will not return to Friday's preseason game against the Celtics due to back spasms.

    Fournier played 19 minutes and missed all three of his shot attempts. There are no indications that it is serious but he will likely miss the Magic's next preseason game against the 76ers as a precaution.

    Evan Fournier will be held out of the Magic's game against the Hawks on Wednesday for rest purposes.

    Wesley Iwundu and Vic Law are experiencing soreness so they will also miss the contest. Fournier should start this season for the Magic. He can be useful for assists and 3-pointers but is more of a late round selection.

    Rudy Gobert was very quiet in France's 67-59 win over Australia totaling just two points, four rebounds, three turnovers and four personal fouls in just over 19 minutes of action.

    Gobert's production in FIBA faded after his commanding performance against Team USA, but thanks in part to the depth France rolled out, he didn't need to be dominant for them to secure their bronze medal. Evan Fournier led the way for France in this one, scoring 16 points while chipping in two 3-pointers and five rebounds.

    Evan Fournier scored 16 points to lead France in their semifinal loss to Argentina by the score of 80-66.

    This was a really poor showing all around in an elimination game by the French team. Fournier scored an inefficient 16 and was joined by Frank Ntilikina's 16 as two of just three French players in double figures.

    Evan Fournier scored 22 points and added three rebounds and fours assists, leading France to a 89-79 win over Team USA.

    Fournier has been the scoring leader for France in this tournament while hitting a few clutch shots. France has a chance to grab the gold medal now and it’s certain that his performance will boost his confidence coming into his sixth season with the Magic.

    Evan Fournier led France with 31 points in Monday's loss to Australia, going 11-of-23 from the field with six rebounds, four assists, a steal and three 3-pointers.

    Fournier has become France's team leader and it's been a wonderful run for him so far. France is one of the real contenders in the field so Fournier will need to keep the pedal to the metal with the knockout round coming next. Consider him a late-round fantasy selection, though he has showcased middle-round upside in the past.

    Evan Fournier scored a team-high 24 points in Saturday's 82-79 win over Lithuania, shooting 10-of-22 from the field with two threes, three assists and a steal.

    Fournier has taken the reins for this French team and will need to keep his foot on the gas with Le Bleu punching their ticket to the next round today. After a disappointing season with the Magic last year, perhaps this strong run can get Fournier rolling right when the NBA tips off. Nando De Colo added 21 points in the victory.

  • Rudy Gobert
    C, Utah Jazz

    Rudy Gobert scored 13 points and added eight rebounds on a perfect 5-of-5 shooting from the field in Thursday's 90-56 beatdown of the Dominican Republic.

    Gobert and France again made quick work of their inferior opponents tonight. Evan Fournier pitched in with 10 points and five assists, while Nando De Colo led the team with 15 points. Lithuania is up next on Saturday.

    Evan Fournier continued to score in bunches in the FIBA World Cup, putting up 26 points, on 8-of-16 shooting, and 10 rebounds in France's 78-74 win over Team Germany.

    Fournier has been France's go-to scorer thus far and it's paid off for one of the more formiddable squads in FIBA. Fantasy owners should hope that this summer tune-up helps Fournier bounce back from what was a relatively underwhelming 2018-2019 season. Teammate Rudy Gobert was also effective, adding nine points, nine rebounds and five blocks.

    In an 82-80 win by France over Italy on Sunday, Evan Fournier posted 29 points in 19 minutes of action.

    This was nice showing for Fournier, who is coming of a relatively lackluster 2018-19 campaign. He will have to fend off an emergent Terrence Ross for those minutes at the wing this season and will need production-per-minute on this level if he wants to stay on the floor for the Magic.
