Terrence Ross sank five 3-pointers in a 106-83 road win over the Hornets on Monday, totaling 19 points on 6-of-12 shooting, two rebounds, one assist and two steals in 31 minutes.
Since Jonathan Isaac went down on New Year's Day, Ross has seen an uptick in minutes and that's resulted in increased threes and steals. If that's what you need and you can afford a poor field goal percentage, Ross should be a solid option for the rest of the season.

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 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.

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.

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.

Terrence Ross was held to 10 points on Monday, while adding three rebounds, three steals and a 3-pointer.
Ross went 3-for-10 from the field, but was coming into this game on a bit of a hot streak. He should be held onto as the Magic are going to need his scoring punch with Jonathan Isaac out of the picture for a while.

Terrence Ross shot 9-of-16 from the field on his way to scoring 24 points with three rebounds and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes on Saturday.
Ross has stepped up since Jonathan Isaac went down. He's led the Magic in scoring the past two games and has hit eight threes during that stretch. Ross doesn't contribute much outside of points and threes but he is strong in both of those categories and should be grabbed in all leagues.

Terrence Ross scored a team-high 25 points in Friday's 105-85 win over the Heat, going 7-of-13 from the field with two steals and six 3-pointers.
Ross is going to have to step it up on the wings with Jonathan Isaac out for at least two months, and tonight was a great first showing. He's been right around the top-150 this season but should be scooped up in most formats, as he was a top-100 asset last season and is about to take on an important role for a Magic team that doesn't have a super firm grip on a playoff spot. If you need points, threes and the occasional steal, Ross shouldn't be on your waiver wire.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN has reported that the MRI that was done on Jonathan Isaac's left knee revealed a severe sprain and bone contusion and the team will re-evaluate him in approximately two months.
Wojnarowski also reported that the silver lining of Isaac's injury is that he avoided any structural damage to ACL, MCL or PCL ligaments. Isaac was on pace to finish the year somewhere between a second round and fourth round value. He does still have a chance to return this season but that opportunity won't come until the end of the season. He can be placed on the IR spot if that is an option; otherwise it wouldn't be crazy to drop him in redraft leagues. The names to watch on the Magic that may be on the waiver wire are Terrence Ross, Khem Birch, Amile Jefferson and Mo Bamba. Ross is the only player that has been fantasy relevant in standard leagues in past seasons.

The Magic are trying to find new ways to get more good looks for Terrence Ross in their effort to develop better offensive efficiency.
“I’m going to say this, and I said it to the team on Tuesday: He’s the one that I’ve got to help more because opponents are so locked in to him,’’ Steve Clifford said. The Magic are 4-1 when he scores at least 20 points and a respectable 10-9 when the guard makes two or more 3-pointers. Conversely, they are just 9-17 when Ross scores fewer than 20 points and only 3-9 in the games where Ross makes one or zero 3-pointers. The swingman keeps having his ups and downs but his bad percentages make him to tough to hold this season.

Terrence Ross was awful in Monday's loss to the Hawks, going 2-for-11 from the field to finish the game with four points, four rebounds and three dimes.
Ross has had a hell of a roller-coaster of a season and this is close to rock-bottom for him. He's a hold if you can stomach the wild swings, but be ready to buckle up for a bumpy ride.

Terrence Ross led the Magic in scoring in their win over the Bulls on Monday with 26 points on 8-of-17 shooting while adding four rebounds, one steal and six 3-pointers.
Ross is usually only worth owning when he's hitting his triples, and tonight he did. He went 6-for-13 from deep and logged 31 minutes off the bench tonight. His last three games he was held to single-digit scoring, so we're not going to rush to grab him, especially when you consider Evan Fournier (32 minutes, eight points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals) should get back on track soon.

Terrence Ross played 27 minutes off the bench on Friday night, scoring 13 points (4-for-10 shooting), two assists, two triples, two blocks, a steal and a rebound.
The minutes were a team-high off the bench for the Magic, as Ross seems to be settling into a sixth-man role that is offering him plenty of opportunities to hoist shots and be an option as a points and threes streamer. There will be rough shooting nights mixed in so be prepared for that as well.

Terrence Ross was off his game on Wednesday and was limited to scoring four points on 2-of-11 shooting with one rebound, one assist and three steals.
Ouch. Ross was on a bit of a heater prior to this one, so the sting is real. That said, he's been trending up so just consider this a hiccup thanks to a tough matchup against one of the best teams in the league.

Terrence Ross continued his hot streak on Monday, scoring 23 points with four rebounds, one assist and four triples.
Ross went 8-for-14 from the floor and 4-for-6 from distance and after an awful start to the year, has really brought it back. Over the past two weeks, he's inside the top-70 with averages of 17.4 points, 2.6 3s and 0.9 steals. Grab him if you need triples and points and ride him 'til the wheels fall off.
