    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.

    SF, Orlando Magic

    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.

    Wes Iwundu suffered a concussion during the Magic's scrimmage on Saturday, and head coach Steve Clifford said he is not likely to play on Friday.

    Clifford said that Iwundu no longer has headaches, which is a good sign. Iwundu was likely to be the starting small forward for the Magic. Jonathan Isaac is also questionable as he returns from injury and will likely be limited if he does play. James Ennis started at small forward in Monday's scrimmage vs. the Nuggets and scored 15 points in 20 minutes. Terrence Ross could also see more minutes if the Magic get creative with smaller lineups.

    Wes Iwundu has entered the NBA's concussion protocol.

    Iwundu was forced from Saturday's scrimmage after a fall and collision that also resulted in a laceration above his left eye. He's shaping up as Orlando's starting small forward if Jonathan Isaac is unable to play in the league's resumption, so any long-term absence would be a big blow to the Magic rotation.

    Wesley Iwundu will not return to Saturday's scrimmage after suffering a laceration above his left eye.

    Iwundu averaged 18.0 mpg for the Magic this season, a number which could skyrocket if Jonathan Isaac is unable to play in the league's resumption. While he isn't a serious fantasy option, the Magic do like Iwundu's defensive abilities and he's the favorite to start at small forward as of this writing. Hopefully this injury doesn't sideline him for long.

    Wesley Iwundu didn't improve much in his third year with the team as his 5.3 points, 0.5 3s, 2.5 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.2 blocks which were on par with his last year's averages.

    Iwundu didn't receive any extra playing time as the Magic are a bit loaded at his position with Jonathan Isaac taking most of the shine. The Magic also love to play Terrence Ross at his position which doesn't do him any favors as well.

  • Khem Birch
    C, Orlando Magic

    Khem Birch (back) will not play on Monday.

    Birch should get more opportunities with Jonathan Isaac injured, but he won't be available against the Hornets. Wes Iwundu will start that game.

    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 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.

  • 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.
