    Michael Carter-Williams had 20 points (6-of-9 FG, 2-of-3 3PT), three rebounds and two steals in Tuesday's win over the Grizzlies.

    Carter-Williams has picked up more playing time over the last two weeks and has made the most of his opportunity, ranking inside the top-120 over that span. He's merely a streaming option, however, as he offers little else besides points and some steals.

  • Markelle Fultz
    PG, Orlando Magic

    Markelle Fultz was solid vs. the Rockets on Sunday, accounting for 18 points (8-of-12 FG), five assists, two 3-pointers and three turnovers.

    Fultz had a tidy game in just 28 minutes of action. He remains a reliable end of the roster point guard in standard leagues. D.J. Augustin was also productive in this game, going for 24 points (7-of-10 FG, 6-of-6 FT) and four 3-pointers. Augustin has had two strong games and could be in for some standard league value while Evan Fournier (elbow) is out indefinitely. Michael Carter-Williams has emerged as a deep league option, and he put up 16 points on strong percentages along with one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

  • D.J. Augustin

    D.J. Augustin scored 18 points (4-for-7 shooting) to go along with five assists, three rebounds and a triple in 27 minutes off the bench in Friday's win over the Wolves.

    Augustin and Michael Carter-Williams (17 points, five assists, two rebounds, one triple and one steal) both took advantage of the extra opportunity left by Evan Fournier's absence and posted serviceable lines. Look for both to be streaming options if Fournier's injury lingers.

    Michael Carter- Williams benefitted from a bit of garbage time in Sunday's blowout loss to the Clippers and was able to provide a team-high 15 points on 6-of-11 shooting.

    MCW was able to record seven rebounds, eight assists and one 3-pointer to round out his line for the night. He has some fringe value in 16-teamers, especially during this time that D.J. Augustin is sidelined with an injury.

    Michael Carter-Williams (Ac joint sprain) will play against the WWarriors on Saturday.

    MCW will be a welcome sight for the Magic after the team will be without D.J. Augustin for the foreseeable future. MCW will likely get eased back into the rotation after missing nearly a month with the shoulder injury. He has upside for his defensive ability.

    As he continues to deal with an AC joint sprain in his left shoulder, Michael Carter-Williams is questionable for Saturday's matchup with the Warriors.

    Carter-Williams has not been roster worthy all season with the Magic, and that is not going to change even if he returns while D.J. Augustin is still out. It's best to leave MCW on the wire unless you are in the deepest of leagues.

    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.

    Michael Carter-Williams (left shoulder AC joint sprain) is doubtful to face the Clippers on Thursday.

    Carter-Williams doesn't provide value in standard leagues as he averages just over 16 minutes per game. It seems highly unlikely that he suits up on Thursday and his next opportunity to play will come against the Warriors on Saturday.

  • Evan Fournier
    SF, Orlando Magic

    Evan Fournier is listed as questionable for Wednesday due to a right quad contusion suffered on Monday.

    Despite scoring 25 points, Fournier was apparently kicked during the Sacramento game. The Magic are already without D.J. Augustin and Michael Carter-Williams against the Lakers, so Aaron Gordon could see monster usage if Fournier sits.

    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.

    Michael Carter-Williams (shoulder sprain) is being listed as questionable to make his return to the lineup against the Lakers on Wednesday.

    MCW's return would be a welcome sight for the Magic, who could use another guard/wing defender. If Carter-Williams can return, there will likely be more minutes to go around as D.J. Augustin is doubtful for the matchup.

    Michael Carter-Williams (left AC joint sprain), who was expected to return to the lineup, has been ruled out on Monday against the Kings.

    This is a bit of a curveball as MCW likely had some minutes coming his way given the injuries down in Orlando. He'll have to wait at least one more game before making his return. He's not on the fantasy radar.

    Michael Carter-Williams (left AC joint sprain) is questionable for Monday's game with Sacramento.

    MCW has been out for the last 10 games and would probably be a nice lift on the wings as a lanky defender to help try and replace Jonathan Isaac's minutes, but even if he gets rolling we're looking at a steals specialist in deeper leagues.

    Magic coach Steve Clifford said that Michael Carter-Williams is feeling better, but that he is “still a ways away.”

    The Magic could actually use MCW as they are missing Jonathan Issac and Al-Farouq Aminu as well. Clifford added that his guard has yet to start on-court work and he is still doing rehab on his shoulder so a return is not imminent.

    Michael Carter-Williams (left AC joint sprain) is being listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

    MCW is a name to keep in mind as a defensive specialist in deeper leagues with Jonathan Isaac's injury opening up minutes in the rotation, but can be ignored until he shows signs of a potential return.
