    Al-Farouq Aminu has suffered a torn meniscus in his right knee and is out indefinitely according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

    This is a devestating blow to the depth of a team that is already struggling to stay healthy. The team is looking at non-surgical options to address the tear, but his season, in all likelihood, will be significantly shortened, if not over. Wes Iwundu figures to see a bigger workload moving forward.

    Wes Iwundu started again on Monday but chipped in three points and two boards in 26 minutes.

    Iwundu scored four points with a pair of steals in Saturday's start, and there's nothing to see here even as Aaron Gordon remains sidelined.

  • Khem Birch
    C, Orlando Magic

    The Magic will start Markelle Fultz, Evan Fournier, Wes Iwundu, Jonathan Isaac and Khem Birch versus the Pacers on Saturday.

    Khem Birch and Wes Iwundu will draw the start in place of Aaron Gordon and Nikola Vucevic. Mo Bamba should see some extended run, but has been struggling while on the floor this season. Terrence Ross will also see some extended run and usage coming off of the bench.

    Wesley Iwundu will get the start on Saturday vs. the Pacers.

    Iwundu could be in line for major minutes for the first time in his career. The Magic are with Aaron Gordon and Nikola Vucevic for the time being, and while Iwundu has never shown that he has a strong fantasy skill set, he is still worth monitoring to see if a larger role leads to new results.

    Wesley Iwundu made his season debut on Friday and recorded two points (1-of-4 shooting) and one rebound in 13 minutes off the bench.

    Iwundu is only in fantasy consideration in extremely deep leagues. Move on.

  • Evan Fournier
    SF, Orlando Magic

    Evan Fournier (back spasms) will play Thursday vs. Heat along with teammate Wes Iwundu (general soreness).

    The Magic appear to be at full strength ahead of the regular season. Fournier is someone to look at towards the end of drafts in the hopes that he will have a bounce-back season. Iwundu will likely not produce fantasy value outside of very deep leagues as he is a deep rotation piece.

  • Evan Fournier
    SF, Orlando Magic

    Evan Fournier will be held out of the Magic's game against the Hawks on Wednesday for rest purposes.

    Wesley Iwundu and Vic Law are experiencing soreness so they will also miss the contest. Fournier should start this season for the Magic. He can be useful for assists and 3-pointers but is more of a late round selection.

    Magic forward Wesley Iwundu will be rested on Monday against the Pistons.

    Iwundu had complained of general soreness and the Magic won't take any chances. He's expected to fill a reserve role but does not carry a ton of fantasy value at the moment.

    The Magic are picking up the $1.6 million 2019-20 team option on forward Wesley Iwundu.

    This was an easy call for the Magic as Iwundu is an integral part of the rotation at a low price. Iwundu should return as a backup wing again next season with the potential for a more prominent role with Terrence Ross becoming an unrestricted free agent. Iwundu can be a late-round option in deeper leagues next season.

    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.

    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.
