Arron Afflalo was aggressive on Wednesday and hit 9-of-16 shots and two 3-pointers for 25 points, four rebounds and five assists in Tuesday's win.
He had gone eight games without scoring 20 or more points and just hasn't looked aggressive since the All-Star break. He looked like a different player tonight, but we'll have to see him do this again before declaring him fully back to form. And we're running out of time. Apr 9 - 10:22 PM

Arron Afflalo scored eight points on 3-of-9 shooting in Sunday's loss to Toronto.

The veteran SG is scoring 16.0 points per game in March, but he's doing it on 41.1 percent shooting. He's typically a reliable contributor in points, 3-pointers and even percentages, but his fantasy value is severely damaged by a lack of steals (0.5 per game) and blocks (two all season).
Mar 30 - 8:37 PM

Arron Afflalo scored 20 points vs. the Suns on Wednesday during a 109-93 loss, adding three boards, one assist and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

He rebounded nicely from a four-point game on Tuesday which was his lowest all season. Afflalo's treys have really tailed off this month and his overall efficiency has dropped off as well, but he should snap out of this funk soon. Looking at the schedule, things are looking up for him with games against the Jazz on Saturday, Lakers on Sunday and Blazers on Tuesday.
Mar 20 - 1:58 AM

Arron Afflalo hit just 2-of-7 shots and zero 3-pointers for four points in Tuesday's loss.

He played just 22 minutes and isn't hurt, as far as we know. He had scored in double figures in nine straight games coming in, and also hit seven 3-pointers over his previous four. He was worked over by Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry tonight, and didn't even play in the fourth quarter. Expect him to bounce back on Wednesday against the Suns.
Mar 19 - 2:25 AM

Arron Afflalo scored a team-high 24 points against his former team during a 120-112 loss on Wednesday, adding one board, two assists and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

It didn't take long for Afflalo to get back in a groove in scoring the ball after returning from an ankle injury on Mar. 5. In those four, he averaged 17.8 points, 3.5 boards, 0.5 steals and 1.3 triples in 33.8 minutes per game. Double A hasn't quite been as great as he was earlier this year, but he's still a must-start player.
Mar 12 - 10:18 PM

Arron Afflalo returned from an ankle injury on Wednesday and hit 8-of-16 shots (0-for-4 from downtown) for 18 points, four assists and a steal.

He played 31 minutes and looked healthy, and this may be his last game for a while without a 3-pointer. Get him back in your lineup.
Mar 5 - 9:54 PM

Arron Afflalo (ankle) will return to action vs. Houston on Wednesday.

Magic coach Jacque Vaughn didn't want Afflalo to play until he was "confident and 100 percent [healthy]," so there should be no restrictions on Afflalo as he squares off against James Harden and the Rockets. Afflalo was averaging 25.3 points and 3.0 triples in the three games prior to his injury, so hopefully he'll pick up where he left off.
Mar 5 - 11:11 AM

Arron Afflalo (ankle) is expected to return on Wednesday, according to coach Jacque Vaughn.

"It gives us two days in between games and we'll take advantage of that, making sure he's confident and 100 percent when he comes back," said Vaughn. Moe Harkless is the most likely option to shift to the bench when Afflalo returns, but Victor Oladipo's owners should also be on the lookout for any lineup tweaks since he's averaging fewer points, rebounds, assists and steals in a reserve role.

Mar 3 - 9:40 AM

Arron Afflalo (ankle, illness) has officially been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the visiting 76ers.

Victor Oladipo, Moe Harkless and E'Twaun Moore will all get extra opportunities in his continued absence. The Magic have a light two-game schedule this week, playing on Wednesday and Saturday, so with any luck this will be Afflalo's last DNP. Owners with weekly lineups may want to play it safe and keep him benched given the unfavorable schedule.
Mar 2 - 4:26 PM

Arron Afflalo (ankle) is doubtful to play the 76ers on Sunday.

Fantasy owners will rue his absence vs. the Sixers' porous defense, but it makes sense for the lottery-bound Magic to play it safe with their veteran SG.
Mar 2 - 3:55 PM

Arron Afflalo (ankle) will not travel for Saturday's game against the Heat.

He is also under the weather on top of his sprained ankle. The Magic will return home for Sunday to face the Sixers and Afflalo should be considered questionable for that game. Moe Harkless has stepped up in the starting lineup and is worth a look for any owner not putting a premium on percentages. E'Twaun Moore has also seen more playing time and shots.
Feb 28 - 3:37 PM

Arron Afflalo (ankle, illness) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Heat.

Afflalo did not practice Friday due to both his ankle issue and because he's under the weather. Given that, we'd be a little surprised if he suited up Saturday considering he hasn't played or practiced in a full week. Look for the Magic to roll with a starting five of Jameer Nelson, Victor Oladipo, Mo Harkless, Tobias Harris and Nik Vucevic again. Harkless is averaging 8.8 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.1 steals and 0.9 3-pointers in 19 starts this season.
Feb 28 - 11:35 AM

Arron Afflalo (ankle) did not travel for Wednesday's game against the Sixers.

This will be his third game out of the lineup and he should be considered questionable for Saturday's road game in Miami. Moe Harkless was effective on Tuesday with 22 points on 9-of-13 shooting, but he does have some inconsistent games on his resume. Of course, going against the team that traded him away and a great matchup make him an interesting plug-and-play option.
Feb 26 - 5:51 PM

Updating a previous item, Arron Afflalo's foot injury will prevent him from traveling to Washington for Tuesday's game, meaning he'll miss his second straight game.

Look for Moe Harkless to make another start and consider Afflalo highly questionable for Wednesday's game in Philadelphia, as well. He's day-to-day after suffering the injury.
Feb 23 - 9:26 PM

Arron Afflalo (ankle) will join the Magic in Washington on Tuesday or in Philadelphia on Wednesday.

It's unknown if he will play and coach Jacque Vaughn did not rule him out from those games. Afflalo not traveling for Sunday's game against the Raptors probably isn't a great sign, so he should be considered questionable at best. Moe Harkless will get the start on Sunday while Victor Oladipo will look to build off one of the best games of his career.
