    Michael Carter-Williams (left foot tendon strain) is officially listed as questionable ahead of Friday's matchup with the Sixers.

    MCW is in jeopardy of missing his second straight game after injuring his foot in Tuesday's contest vs. the Pacers. Terrence Ross saw some extra minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Raptors but it doesn't appear like MCW's absence will significantly alter the fantasy values of other Magic players. Continue to monitor as we should get more information on Friday.

    Michael Carter-Williams (left foot tendon strain) has been ruled out of Wednesday's contest.

    Carter-Williams had already been considered doubtful to face the Raptors. Wes Iwundu should see more court time as a result.

    An MRI on Michael Carter-Williams' sore left foot showed a tendon strain and he is considered doubtful to play in Wednesday’s game against the Raptors.

    MCW has played well for the Magic this year but the injury bug will likely sideline him tonight. Markelle Fultz and D.J Augustin will continue to dominate the guard minutes, while Orlando will have to count more on Wes Iwundu as well with Jonathan Isaac out indefinitely.

    Michael Carter-Williams (sore left foot) was limited to just eight minutes on Tuesday vs. the Pacers as a precautionary measure and will undergo an MRI inside the bubble, according to Joshua Robbins of The Athletic.

    He finished with just three points and two assists and simply did not play enough to be a factor. It's an unfortunate development for Carter-Williams if he ends up being forced to miss any game action, as he had really been playing well for the Magic. There will be an update following his MRI.

    Michael Carter-Williams was feeling himself on Sunday versus the Kings, accounting for 12 points, five rebounds, three assists, three steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer.

    Carter-Williams benefited from how out of hand this game was in the second half, logging 30 minutes of playing time. With Markelle Fultz helping the Magic blow this game open, he's not about to fall behind MCW in the rotation, and D.J. Augustin remains the stable starter in Orlando. The point guard remains better left on waiver wires as we've seen these blips on the radar one too many times from versatile, but highly inefficient players like Carter-Williams

  • Markelle Fultz
    PG, Orlando Magic

    Steve Clifford expects to have Markelle Fultz (re-conditioning) available for Friday's re-opener vs. the Nets.

    Fultz was able to log eight minutes in the Magic's final scrimmage and should see his minutes increase in Friday's contest. Luckily, the Magic will have an easy matchup in the Nets for Fultz and Jonathan Isaac to get their sea legs under them. We wouldn't expect Fultz to play more than 20 minutes today so there are better options in terms of building a DFS lineup. The return of Fultz could negatively impact D.J. Augustin and Michael Carter-Williams.

    Michael Carter-Williams put up 15 points while shooting 4-of-15 from the field on Saturday, adding eight rebounds, three assists and a steal in 22 minutes off the bench.

    Carter-Williams is displaying some versatility for the Magic, soaking up some minutes on the wing with Jonathan Isaac still out and Wesley Iwundu (eye) leaving today's scrimmage early. His defensive prowess is what will keep him on the floor, and while he's had two solid showings so far we do expect him to land outside the fantasy conversation when the Magic get Markelle Fultz and Iwundu back in action. That duo will limit MCW's pathways to minutes at both of his primary positions.

    Michael Carter-Williams was the primary facilitator off the bench for the Magic as he scored 16 points (6-of-11) to go along with three assists and one turnover in Wednesday's 99-90 loss to the Clippers.

    MCW saw an increased role on Wednesday with Markelle Fultz sidelined. Fultz does seem to be close to returning which would cap Carter-Williams' upside. However, MCW will most definitely be a key part of the bench unit once the games count.

    Michael Carter-Williams showed flashes of fill-in value as a deep-league streamer in 42 games of reserve duty for the Magic in 2019-20.

    Carter-Williams reminded people of his interesting skill set especially after D.J. Augustin was shelved with a knee issue for 15 games. MCW has some streaming potential whenever he approaches 20 minutes because of his rebounding and passing ability as a big point guard who can also be disruptive on the defensive end. In 18.4 minutes per game, he averaged 7.2 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.1 steals per contest, good for 187th in per-game output.

    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
    PG, Orlando Magic

    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.
