Terrence Ross let his scoring do the talking in 23 minutes during Saturday's loss to the Bucks, pouring in 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting to go with just one rebound and one steal.
The Magic were no match for the Bucks, trailing by as much as 34 points during the third quarter. Ross is typically a player who can score in bunches and that was the story here. His lack of peripheral numbers has always been an issue and certainly puts a cap on his overall value.

Evan Fournier struggled in Thursday's Game 2 loss to the Bucks, scoring 12 points on 4-of-13 shooting with just three boards and one triple in 35 minutes.
Fournier was one of many Magic shooters to struggle. They abused the Bucks in Game 1 but came crashing back to the ground here, making just 7-of-33 long range attempts in Game 2. Terrence Ross managed to shoot even more poorly for his 12 points, going 4-of-14 with two triples and two defensive counters in 29 minutes off the bench.

Terrence Ross failed to hit a single 3-pointer, yet still managed to put up 18 points along with six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 28 minutes during Tuesday's victory over the Bucks.
Ross couldn't find his range from the perimeter but got to the basket with apparent ease during a surprising Game 1 victory over the top-seeded Bucks. He is one of the better bench scorers in the NBA and with Aaron Gordon (hamstring) still on the sidelines, Ross is going to be shouldering more of the offensive load moving forward.

Neither Terrence Ross (illness) nor Evan Fournier (illness) is on the injury report ahead of Tuesday's Game 1 against the Bucks.
Both players were able to participate in Saturday's practice and they're officially in the clear for tomorrow's playoff opener. The Magic will need all hands on deck against top-seeded Milwaukee, and both Ross and Fournier are fine to plug into lineups tomorrow if you were leaning that way.

Evan Fournier (illness) and Terrence Ross (illness) both participated in the Magic's practice on Saturday, according to Steve Clifford.
Both Fournier and Ross were back on the court for the Magic, which certainly bodes well for their chances of being active for Tuesday's game against the Bucks. The Magic will need all the help they can get if they are to trouble their highly-fancied opponents. If you are taking part in a playoff fantasy league, you will need to keep an eye on the injury report heading into the game.

Terrence Ross (self-isolating) will miss the team's last regular season game against the Pelicans on Thursday.
The Magic will be without three main starters and two primary bench players on Thursday which could lead to some fantasy value from the players that are left standing. Nikola Vučević should continue to produce while James Ennis, Markelle Fultz and Khem Birch all had solid fantasy performances in Tuesday's loss to the Nets.

Terrence Ross has returned to the NBA Bubble following off-site medical tests that that were not COVID-related, after those tests were negative, according to Magic officials.
Ross now simply needs to clear the quarantine and then he’ll be able to play. The Magic are most likely going to end with the No. 8 seed in the East but they need as many healthy bodies as they can get with Jonathan Isaac lost for the season and Aaron Gordon battling injuries.

Terrence Ross (personal) has left the bubble and will not be available for the Magic's matchup vs. the Nets on Tuesday.
Ross apparently left for a personal, non COVID-19 medical reason and therefore he'll have to go through off-site COVID-19 tests before he returns. He's been a huge key to the Magic's success this season and fantasy owners should stay tuned for more updates.

Terrence Ross threw up 17 shots against the Celtics on Sunday and hit six of them while going for 18 points, three triples, seven rebounds and one steal.
Ross nearly played a team-high 37 minutes in the overtime affair, and the team was more reliant on his scoring punch with Evan Fournier absent for this game. His shooting is lagging at the moment, but he has plenty of runway to hit his mid-round upside as the Magic play this season out. Wes Iwundu struggled as a starter Sunday with nine points, two rebounds, one 3-pointer and a block.

Terrence Ross tied Evan Fournier for a team-high 15 points on Wednesday, shooting 6-of-14 from the field and 3-of-11 from deep with two steals and one block in 32 minutes.
Ross had back-to-back 20-point games heading into Wednesday but struggled against a dominant Raptors' defense. Aaron Gordon left the game with hamstring tightness and did not return. Ross will be relied on more heavily for scoring if Gordon misses time, so his fantasy value could see a boost in the short-term.

Terrence Ross clicked for 20 points in Tuesday's loss to the Pacers, going 4-of-10 from the field but a perfect 9-for-9 at the free throw line.
Ross added three 3-pointers and a steal to round out his line, and that's about right for fantasy purposes — some threes, the occasional steal and solid scoring. T-Ross will be a late-round option with middle-round upside when he gets cooking, and this makes two 20-point games in a row.

Terrence Ross caught fire against the Kings on Sunday, dropping 25 points (8-of-10 FT), five 3-pointers and one steal over just 23 minutes.
That's an impressive scoring rate from one of the streakiest players to be found in fantasy. As this display reminded us, Ross can rack up points in swift fashion from deep and from the free-throw line, but he offers little else in a box score. He remains the Magic's best reserve scorer, and can carry your roster in points and 3-pointers when he is going on one of his patented heaters.

Terrence Ross followed up his best fantasy season in 2018-19 with another solid year, posting 14.8 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.1 steals, 0.3 blocks, 2.6 threes and 1.0 turnovers in 27.3 mpg across 63 contests.
Ross has been a key member of the rotation for the Magic for the past three and a half seasons and 2019-20 was no different. He saw his production slip slightly season over season as his usage fell from 23.9 in 2018-19 to 22.8 in the shortened campaign. Ross finished with 126/103 per-game value in 8/9-cat leagues and can be expected to do it again as long as his role remains the same. He is under contract with the Magic for the next three seasons.

Terrence Ross had 24 points (8-of-19 FG, 5-of-11 3PT), two rebounds and two blocks on Tuesday in a losing effort against the Grizzlies.
He's been on a tear recently and sits comfortably inside the top-75 over the last two months. If he was dropped in your league and you were able to get him off the wire, you have been readily rewarded with his performances during that time (26 games).

Terrence Ross checked the boxes with 16 points (5-of-10 FG), four three-pointers, four rebounds and three steals while facing the Rockets on Sunday.
This is what we've come to expect from Ross. He should see a boost in value while Evan Fournier (elbow) is out indefinitely, and that will ensure he remains a standard league player from here on out as the Magic look to lockup a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
