    PG, Orlando Magic

    Markelle Fultz followed up his first career triple-double with an 11-4-5 line on Thursday while also adding a triple-one.

    Fultz is still a prime candidate to breakout for the second half of the year and if he's still somehow available on your waiver wire, now might be a good time to scoop him up as a low-risk , high-reward option.

  • D.J. Augustin

    D.J. Augustin underwent an MRI on Thursday and will be reevaluated in three-to-four weeks.

    Augustin will only return if he responds well to the treatment so the timetable is three or four weeks at best. Until then, Markelle Fultz is going to get every opportunity to show what he's got.

    Michael Carter-Williams has been ruled out of Thursday's matchup vs. the Clippers with a AC joint sprain in his left shoulder.

    Markelle Fultz will be the primary ball-handler on Thursday again with MCW and D.J. Augustin ruled out with injuries. Depending on Evan Fournier's status, the Magic could have some interesting low-cost DFS options on Thursday's five-game slate.

    D.J. Augustin will not play against the Clippers on Thursday as he continues to nurse a sore left knee.

    With Augustin ruled out, look for Markelle Fultz to continue to get all the minutes he can handle a day after notching a triple-double in a victory over the Lakers. Augustin's next opportunity to return will come on Saturday against the Warriors.

    Markelle Fultz recorded his first triple-double of the season, notching 21 points on 9-of-19 shooting with 11 rebounds, 10 dimes and one steal in 33 minutes in Wednesday's 119-118 upset over the Lakers.

    Fultz is rising and his ceiling is not something anyone is familiar with. There's no buying low after this explosion, but it could all just as well be a tip-of-the-iceberg prelude to a post-ASB breakout bonanza.

    D.J. Augustin (sore left knee) will not face the Lakers on Wednesday.

    The Magic will lean heavily on Markelle Fultz in his absence. Augustin can provide assists and sporadic scoring, but his fantasy value is trending downward.

    Michael Carter-Williams (left shoulder sprain) will not play on Wednesday.

    Carter-Williams had been listed as questionable but will sit again. He hasn't played since December 20. Markelle Fultz and Terrence Ross have seen more playing time as a result.

    PG, Orlando Magic

    Markelle Fultz logged 31 minutes in a start on Monday and scored 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting to go with four rebounds, two assists and a 3-pointer.

    Fultz continues to show signs of progress as he won the point guard battle tonight against D.J. Augustin (25 minutes, six points, four rebounds, one assist and one triple). He should continue to get the majority of the minutes as the Magic look to develop their younger core.

    With D.J. Augustin (sore left knee) out, Markelle Fultz played well in Friday's loss to the Suns, dropping 15 points on 6-of-13 shooting with six rebounds, six assists and one steal.

    Fultz does not only have an inspiring narrative behind him, but also an amazing leap this 2019-20. He's found his confidence and has been playing like a serious competitor. We're confident he'll stick with standard-league value ROS.

    D.J. Augustin has been ruled out of Friday's tilt vs. the Suns with a sore left knee.

    With Augustin ruled out, Markelle Fultz will have more opportunity running the offense while two-way player Josh Magette might see some backup point guard minutes.

    D.J. Augustin (left knee contusion) is doubtful to play against the Suns on Friday.

    If Augustin misses Friday's game, Markelle Fultz will likely see his minutes increase while two-way player, Josh Magette, might also see some minutes.

    Markelle Fultz scored a career-high 25 points on Monday, while adding five rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

    You love to see it. Fultz is gaining more confidence with each passing game and he's attempting more 3-pointers in the month of January. Even though he's only hitting .111 from deep, the 3.0 attempts shows that he's starting to trust himself a bit more. He's still tough to own in standard leagues due to his inability to contribute outside of dimes and swipes, but there's some dynasty potential here and possibly a post-All Star Break surge too.

    Markelle Fultz set a new career-high with six steals on Friday night, adding six points and three assists.

    The steals were nice but obviously an outlier performance, and the rest of the line points to Fultz's fledgling fantasy contributions. He's been around the top-150 mark and occasionally floats to the right side of the cut line, but he's not someone you have to be burning a spot on in a cutthroat 12-team league. DJ Augustin continued his nice little run with nine points, seven assists and two steals and is a safer bet for those conditional guard stats night-to-night.

    PG, Orlando Magic

    D.J. Augustin started off 2020 with a bang, exploding for 25 points on 7-of-15 shooting from the field and 9-of-10 from the line, adding three rebounds, nine assists, two 3s and two steals in Monday's 122-101 win over the Wizards.

    Augustin is on a bit of a heater, pinging on standard-league radars once again thanks to a three-game stretch of solid performances. Markelle Fultz also played well with 16 points (6-of-12 shooting), four rebounds, eight dimes, one 3-pointer and two steals in just 22 minutes. Fultz remains the higher upside-player, but Augustin is definitely worth a short-term grab while he's hot.

    D.J. Augustin had a solid outing on Monday with 17 points (4-of-9 FGs, 8-of-9 FTs), five rebounds, six assists, one 3-pointer and one steal in 29 minutes.

    Augustin has been a serviceable play so far over the last week and change. Tonight, he clearly outplayed starter Markelle Fultz, who mustered a disappointing three points on 1-of-7 shooting with seven rebounds, five assists and one steal in 31 minutes. Fultz is still the player to own here but owners will need a bit of patience in weathering this stormy patch.
