Wes Iwundu will start at SF in place of Jonathan Isaac (concussion) on Wednesday against the Hornets.
Iwundu is an option in deeper leagues as he'll be looking at a good chunk of playing time. Terrence Ross is also in line for additional minutes off the bench.

Wes Iwundu was a perfect 7-of-7 (2-of-2 from deep) for 16 points on Monday vs. the Raptors.
Iwundu is only a deep-league option, so this is just a feel-good performance where everything fell for him.
March 17, 2019, 8:41 pmWes Iwundu - F - Orlando Magic
Wes Iwundu came out of nowhere to score 14 points with two blocks, two triples, seven boards and a steal on Sunday against the Hawks.
Iwundu only scored 13 points over his last five games prior to tonight. He's not going to do much for you on a nightly basis so don't spend many cycles here. Jonathan Isaac struggled tonight with no points on seven shots, adding a steal and a block.

Wes Iwundu (toe) is expected to play on Wednesday against the Wizards.
With teammate Aaron Gordon also expected to play, Iwundu will resume his role off the bench. Iwundu has received 21.2 mpg over the past month, but it has yet to translate into much fantasy value. He can be left on the waiver wire.

According to coach Steve Clifford, the team will see how Wes Iwundu (toe) feels on Wednesday before determining his availability against the Wizards after not practicing on Tuesday.
WIth Aaron Gordon also missing Tuesday's practice, the Magic could potentially be very shorthanded up front. Jarell Martin is a name to watch in this situation.

Wes Iwundu started the second half for Aaron Gordon and put up seven points with seven rebounds in 32 minutes of action in a loss to the Grizzlies on Sunday.
Iwundu got some extra run with Evan Fournier getting tossed and Aaron Gordon leaving the game briefly. He had all seven of his points from free throws and was 0-of-4 from the field. Iwundu can be left on the wire.

Wes Iwundu didn't do much with his 20 minutes vs. the Sixers on Tuesday, going scoreless with six rebounds, three assists and three turnovers.
Iwundu missed all five of his shots as he picked up some extra run with Terrence Ross out tonight. Isaiah Briscoe was the first off the bench tonight and he had seven points and four dimes in 26 minutes. Jarell Martin also got in after sitting the last six games, playing 12 minutes.

Wes Iwundu (quad bruise) will play in Saturday's game against the Pacers.
Coach Steve Clifford said he expected Iwundu to play in this one, and now we know for sure. He's not on the fantasy radar.

Wes Iwundu (quad bruise) is listed as questionable against the Pacers on Saturday but is expected to play.
Iwundu did not participate in Friday's practice but coach Steve Clifford said after shootaround on Saturday that he expects him to play. He is not on the fantasy radar with a weak stat set and if he does end up missing the game, Terrence Ross may get a slight bump in minutes.

Wes Iwundu played 17 minutes in Tuesday's blowout win over the Pelicans after drawing the questionable tag, putting up eight points, two threes and two blocks.
Even with Jonathon Simmons gone and some garbage time tonight, it looks safe to leave Iwundu alone.
February 11, 2019, 6:10 pmWes Iwundu - F - Orlando Magic
Wes Iwundu (head contusion) is questionable for Tuesday's matchup with the Pelicans.
Iwundu has fallen to the back of Orlando's rotation and isn't a fantasy option, even when he makes fill-in starts. He might be looking at a lightly increased role with Jonathon Simmons now in Philly, but it's not going to be enough to matter outside the deepest of fantasy leagues.
November 4, 2018, 9:29 pmWes Iwundu - F - Orlando Magic
Wes Iwundu started at small forward and only managed two points on 0-of-4 shooting in 13 minutes in a win over the Spurs on Sunday.
Iwundu started for the injured Jonathan Isaac, but did not play much and his minutes were give to Terrence Ross as the game developed. He is not a fantasy option even if he starts while Isaac is out so do not add him to your roster.
October 5, 2018, 5:25 pmWes Iwundu - F - Orlando Magic
Wes Iwundu will join the starting lineup in place of the injured Jonathan Isaac (ankle) on Friday vs. Flamengo.
This is a curious fill in for Iwundu but he shouldn’t be on any fantasy radars this year.
