Fantasy News

  • Nikola Vucevic
    C, Orlando Magic

    Nikola Vucevic scored 22 points on 8-of-13 shooting to go with nine rebounds, four assists, a steal and three triples on Thursday.

    Vucevic was his usual All-Star self on Thursday, but the Magic got blown out of the water by a much better team. They were on the second night of a back-to-back and Vooch still provided first-round value so we're not complaining over here.

  • Aaron Gordon
    PF, Orlando Magic

    Aaron Gordon scored 20 points on 8-of-11 shooting with five assists and four triples on Thursday.

    Gordon produced a zero-rebound game, which would be shocking if we didn't have all of this prior history of him playing too much like a guard. The good news is that he shot well from the floor and he's been solid in that department lately. There's an upward trend here, but if you can ship him off for a top-75 asset, don't think twice.

  • Markelle Fultz
    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.

  • Evan Fournier
    SF, Orlando Magic

    Evan Fournier scored 15 points on 6-of-15 shooting with four rebounds and two assists on Thursday.

    Fournier went 3-for-5 at the line and missed all three of his attempts from deep to cap off a poor shooting night. He was checked by Kawhi Leonard for a good portion of the night so we'll let this one slide as he's been a top-70 guy for the majority of the year.

  • Terrence Ross
    SG, Orlando Magic

    Terrence Ross scored 16 points off the bench on 5-of-15 shooting with five rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers on Thursday.

    Ross has had two solid scoring games in a row now after the six point outing against the Kings and should continue to post these numbers. The Kings losing Jonathan Isaac (knee) opens up extra opportunity for Ross on the offensive end and he should be able to capitalize on the extra usage.

  • Evan Fournier
    SF, Orlando Magic

    Evan Fournier will start at shooting guard for the Magic on Thursday night.

    Fournier will actually start this contest so that mutes any excitement for daily fantasy players looking to roll out someone like Wes Iwundu on the cheap.

  • Evan Fournier
    SF, Orlando Magic

    Evan Fournier is a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the Clippers with a right quad contusion.

    Fournier missed the front end of the back-to-back so we'll see if he can hop back in here. Otherwise, we'll see more Terrence Ross and Wesley Iwundu.

  • D.J. Augustin
    PG, Orlando Magic

    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
    PG, Orlando Magic

    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
    PG, Orlando Magic

    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.

  • D.J. Augustin
    PG, Orlando Magic

    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.

  • Evan Fournier
    SF, Orlando Magic

    Evan Fournier (right quad contusion) is questionable to face the Clippers on Thursday.

    Fournier is in jeopardy of missing his second consecutive game on the second half of a back-to-back. Terrence Ross and Wes Iwundu will see the most benefit if Fournier does sit out while B.J. Johnson and Gary Clark could be used as extremely low-cost DFS options.

  • Aaron Gordon
    PF, Orlando Magic

    Aaron Gordon put up a solid effort on Wednesday, recording 21 points on 7-of-12 shooting, adding six rebounds, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer to the box score in 38 minutes.

    AG is rolling and should see a steady uptick in production as the Magic lean more on him ROS. He's a top-150 play over the last couple of weeks but we should see that trend up if he continues on this trajectory.

  • Gary Clark
    PF, Orlando Magic

    Gary Clark made his debut for the Magic on Wednesday and was productive in 20 minutes off the bench, posting 10 points on 4-of-6 shooting with four rebounds and one block.

    Clark is on a 10-day contract and this was a good showing for the former Rocket. While there's not a certainty that he'll be able to stick with the Magic, his ability to hit the three and contribute on defense will go a long way towards a guaranteed deal. He's worth a streamer at best while he's being tested.

  • Wes Iwundu
    SF, Orlando Magic

    Wes Iwundu started for Evan Fournier on Wednesday and had himself a career-night performance with 19 points (career-high) on 5-of-8 shooting from the field and an 8-of-10 run at the line.

    Iwundu was aggressive tonight and it paid off, both for the Magic and his owners in fantasy. He also added one triple, four rebounds, two assists and two steals in his 32 minutes on the floor. He's still more of a deep-league guy right now, but the consistent minutes are a good sign.
