  • Wes Iwundu - F - Orlando Magic

    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.

  • Wes 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.

  • Wes 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.

  • Wes 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.

  • Wes Iwundu - SG/SF - Orlando Magic

    Wes Iwundu (illness) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Hawks.

    Wes Iwundu would be the likely starting shooting guard with Evan Fournier and Jonathon Simmons both out but he is in danger missing his third straight himself. Even with a decent opportunity at minutes, the second-round pick has scored in double-figures just twice all year, without providing much in terms of other categories. Shelvin Mack has actually seen a nice chunk of minutes lately and should be considered in standard leagues.

  • Wes Iwundu - SG/SF - Orlando Magic

    Wes Iwundu (illness) will not play on Friday vs. the Bulls.

    Iwundu was scheduled to start but is dealing with an upper-respiratory infection and will sit this one out. Mario Hezonja will be the biggest beneficiary despite his inconsistency.

  • Jonathan Isaac - SF/PF - Orlando Magic

    Jonathan Isaac (foot) will start on Friday against the Bulls.

    Isaac has immense upside for defensive stats even in limited minutes and the Bulls are about the best opponent you could hope for if you want to roll the dice with Jonathan. Wes Iwundu also joins the starting lineup, but isn’t as good of a play as Isaac is.

  • Wes Iwundu - SG/SF - Orlando Magic

    Wes Iwundu (illness) is available for Friday’s game versus the Bulls.

    Iwundu missed the last game due to an upper respiratory infection but is good to go for tonight. Rodney Purvis started in place of Jonathan Isaac and Iwundu, but will be relegated back to a bench role now that they are both healthy. Iwundu had started at shooting guard for the Magic for the game prior to his illness, but it remains uncertain if Magic head coach Frank Vogel goes to Mario Hezonja at shooting guard following a strong game.

  • Jonathan Isaac - SF/PF - Orlando Magic

    Jonathan Isaac and fellow rookies Khem Birch, Wes Iwundu, Rodney Purvis and Jamel Artis are expected to see major minutes moving forward.

    With 12 games to go in their season, and with the playoffs out of the question, Magic officials hope to accelerate the learning curve for their youngsters. The team wants to put them on the court over the final 3½ weeks of the season, evaluate them and give them opportunities to grow. Isaac should be picked up in all leagues as he is expected to see his minutes increase even more as the season unfolds. Birch is also worth a look in deeper leagues as he can provide plenty of defensive stats. It’s unclear how much playing time veterans like Aaron Gordon and Nikola Vucevic will receive but owners should hold onto them for now.
