Fantasy News

  • Wes Iwundu
    SF, Orlando Magic

    Wesley Iwundu is reportedly signing with the Mavs this season on a two-year deal.

    Details about the deal itself will surely follow soon. Iwundu is not going to be fantasy-relevant despite the change in scenery.

    The Magic did not extend a qualifying offer to Wes Iwundu, rendering him an unrestricted free agent.

    Iwundu got plenty of opportunity last year with the injuries that the Magic suffered throughout the course of the year. He even started 21 games for the team but just doesn't do enough on the basketball court from a reality or fantasy perspective. He'll likely end up on a roster as and end-of-the-bench guy.

    Wes Iwundu played only 10 minutes during Monday's Game 4 loss and was hardly seen as he managed just one rebound and one steal.

    Iwundu continues to be one of the poorer per-minute producers in the NBA, turning in another highly underwhelming performance. Despite plenty of opportunities this season, Iwundu has topped double-digit scoring only eight times. His defense is also nothing to write home about and where he fits moving forward remains to be seen.

  • Michael Carter-Williams
    PG, Orlando Magic

    Michael Carter-Williams (left foot tendon strain) is doubtful for Game 1 against the Bucks on Tuesday.

    Carter-Williams was spotted in a walking boot as recently as this past Saturday. If he is declared out for Tuesday's game against the Bucks, James Ennis would likely benefit and solidify his minutes above 30. Wes Iwundu may also see a slight uptick in minutes as well.

    Wes Iwundu played well in Thursday's season finale, posting a well-rounded line with 15 points (4-of-5 FG, 5-of-7 FT), four rebounds, two triples and six assists in 27 minutes.

    Iwundu is normally a low-usage guy, so tonight's performance should definitely be filed under the "fringe category." He's not worth trusting in fantasy under normal circumstances.

  • Markelle Fultz
    PG, Orlando Magic

    Markelle Fultz is starting Thursday's game against the Pelicans in place of D.J. Augustin.

    Fultz will replace Augustin in a meaningless contest for both sides and could have some appeal as an emergency daily play. The Magic are going with a rag-tag lineup with Fultz joined by Wes Iwundu, Gary Clark, James Ennis and Nikola Vucevic.

    Wes Iwundu played a sizeable role on Tuesday, dropping 18 points to go with five rebounds and three assists in the 108-96 loss to the Nets.

    Normally a very limited per-minute producer, Iwundu finally found some rhythm on the offensive end. his tally of 18 points was, in fact, the second-highest scoring game of his career. He often finds himself on the floor at times when those around him are going down with injuries. Once again, that is the case moving forward, although we shouldn't expect to see numbers like this on a regular basis.

  • Terrence Ross
    SG, Orlando Magic

    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.

    Wes Iwundu will replace Evan Fournier (illness) in the starting lineup on Sunday.

    The Magic are missing their three starting forward/wing players, with Iwundu, James Ennis and Gary Clark starting in their respective places. There isn't much fantasy appeal here but Iwundu may be able to grind out late-round numbers over Orlando's final three games given how many minutes he's likely to get.

  • Michael Carter-Williams
    PG, Orlando Magic

    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.

  • James Ennis III
    SF, Orlando Magic

    James Ennis delivered 12 points in Tuesday's start, also adding four rebounds, two assists, a block and a 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

    Ennis was looking like a placeholder for Jonathan Isaac but now might hold onto the starting small forward spot for as long as the Magic are in the bubble. He and Wes Iwundu (18 minutes, four points, one block) will try to hold down the fort, but neither is a recommended fantasy option.

    Wes Iwundu (neck stiffness) is available for Sunday's game.

    Iwundu was placed into the concussion protocol after getting hurt in a scrimmage game and this will be his first action in the resumption season. He'll be in the mix for minutes at small forward, with James Ennis and Jonathan Isaac as his main competition. Iwundu shouldn't be considered a fantasy option.

    Wes Iwundu (neck soreness) is listed as questionable to play against the Kings on Sunday.

    Iwundu is close to returning and had an outside chance to play on Friday after being upgraded from out to questionable before eventually being held out. He may cut into James Ennis' minutes but neither player has any fantasy appeal regardless.

    Wes Iwundu will not be available for Friday's contest vs. the Nets due to neck stiffness and soreness.

    Iwundu was able to clear the concussion protocol which is a step in the right direction towards playing, but it appears that he is still dealing with an injury due to the collision he suffered in Saturday's scrimmage. With Iwundu sidelined, James Ennis and Gary Clark could see some extra minutes on Friday against a depleted Nets squad. Iwundu will have another opportunity to play on Sunday vs. the Kings.

    Wes Iwundu has been upgraded to questionable for Friday's contest against the Nets.

    Iwundu was previously listed as out for Friday's game after suffering a concussion during the Magic's scrimmage on Saturday, but he is going through protocol and may be able to play. It's unlikely that the Magic rush anyone back, especially with how many options they have at the wing.
