    Evan Fournier (right UCL sprain) is fully recovered.

    Fournier was supposed to be looking at an "extended absence" when he first went down in March, slamming the brakes on what was a top-70 season. The fact that he's healthy again will be a huge lift to the Magic, who currently occupy the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference. They only need to hold off the Wizards to earn a playoff berth but also have an outside chance at jumping over the Nets to take the seventh spot.

    Evan Fournier (right UCL sprain) will not play on Friday and could be looking at an extended absence.

    Fournier has quietly been a superb fantasy asset this season, returning top-70 value despite a bottom-barrel ADP. His loss would be a huge blow to the Magic, though luckily they are relatively safe inside the top eight thanks to the weakness of the Eastern Conference. Wes Iwundu will start in his place tonight and seems to be the top choice for the role even if Terrence Ross gets the most actual benefits out of it, while DJ Augustin and Michael Carter-Williams should also see more minutes in the backcourt. Despite starting, Iwundu is the weakest option of the bunch.

    Evan Fournier (right elbow UCL sprain) is listed as doubtful for Friday's game against the Wolves.

    Fournier has been listed as doubtful for tomorrow night's matchup against Minnesota. This is a new injury so monitor it as more news arises. Fournier has been a top 70 value this season in both 9-cat and 8-cat. In the meantime, Terrence Ross should see a boost in opportunity while Markelle Fultz and DJ Augustin should also get more touches.

    Evan Fournier scored 23 points on Saturday, shooting 8-of-16 from the floor and 5-of-10 from deep in a 114-113 loss to the Spurs.

    Fournier added three rebounds, five assists, four steals and one block to round out a fantastic 9-cat line. He's a top-75 player on the season and has been better lately, posting top-40 value over the past month. Fournier should hold top-75 value moving forward.

    Evan Fournier scored a team-high 28 points (11-of-18 from the floor) on Wednesday, adding five assists, three steals and two triples in 35 minutes.

    Fournier is a top-75 player on the season thanks to his contributions in points and threes on strong efficiency. He's been slightly better the past month, posting top-60 value in 9-cat leagues. He should remain inside the top-75 ROS and his teammate Terrence Ross (14 points and three triples in 27 minutes on Wednesday) is another points and threes specialist but doesn't have the ceiling that Fournier does. Ross is on the cusp of top-130 value over the past month and is a fine hold in standard leagues because of his safe role in Orlando.

    Evan Fournier exploded for 28 points (10-for-19 shooting), five triples, two rebounds and two steals in Friday's loss.

    With the big shooting performance, Fournier passed up Hedo Turkoglu to move to fourth on the Magic's career three-pointers list with 795. Fournier should continue to provide strong threes and scoring the rest of the season.

    Evan Fournier scored 22 points on 9-of-17 shooting while adding three boards, two steals, a block and three 3-pointers on Monday.

    Fournier added an uncharacteristic six cash counters with three stocks. We're not going to be expecting this often, but he's definitely a mid-round guy whose upside is now safe with the Magic being a prime spot for him this year.

    Evan Fournier scored 16 points on 3-of-7 shooting to go along with two triples in 33 minutes on Thursday night.

    Fournier has had his best offensive season and has consequently bounced back to a mid-round value after a down 2018-19 campaign. It was interesting to see the Magic stick with him instead of trying to find a buyer in a sell-high move on the trade market. He should continue to be a good producer of scoring and triples. His teammate, Terrence Ross, can also do the same but he will get less volume and will really hurt the percentages on some nights as he did in this game, finishing with 10 points on 3-of-13 shooting.

    Evan Fournier ends with 26 points (8-15 FG, 6-8, 3PT), four rebounds and assist on Wednesday

    Fournier continues to look good. Anyone that puts up six threes in a night should make owners happy. He is still putting up mid-round value on the season.

    Evan Fournier scored 17 points on 7-of-14 shooting to go with three rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers on Monday.

    Fournier started and played 31 minutes after being tagged as questionable for tonight. He looked fine out there so owners should fire him up as usual.

    Evan Fournier (lower back pain) will start for the Magic on Monday.

    Fournier was listed as questionable, but his owners should get him back in the lineup. This seems like a nagging issue, but he has been able to play through the pain of late. Fournier has posted season averages of 18.6 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 3.4 assists.

    Evan Fournier (lower back pain) plans to practice Monday, the result of which will determine his status for the game against the Hornets.

    Fournier has been missing practices routinely with the back issue, but he's yet to miss any games. Monitor his status, but this seems like a case of the Magic opting to rest one of their veterans, particularly considering how injured the team has been this season. When fully healthy and operating as the team's secondary scorer, Fournier has solid standard-league value, but he's as boring as it gets and comes with a low ceiling.

    Evan Fournier (lower back pain) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Hornets.

    This injury popped up for Fournier before Saturday's matchup against the Heat, but he managed to suit up and play 34 minutes in that one. It would appear that this is more precautionary than anything else, and he may be closer to probable than doubtful on this particular questionable tag.

    Evan Fournier (lower back pain) is good to go against the Heat on Saturday.

    Fournier was initially questionable for this game but will end up not missing any time. He has been a steal in most drafts, putting up mid-round value while leading the Magic in both scoring and three-point shooting this season with 18.6 points and 2.6 triples while enjoying his best field goal percentage (46.4) since his rookie year.

    Evan Fournier is dealing with lower back pain, and at this time he is questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Heat.

    Fournier has been surprisingly reliable this season, and the Magic are always in need of his shooting ability. He just struggled against the Heat on Monday, going 3-of-13 from the field for nine points, but don't let that stop you from having him in your lineup if he is active.
