Arron Afflalo will be in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Raptors, with Jonathon Simmons (wrist) unavailable.

Joining Afflalo in the starting five will be D.J. Augustin, Jonathan Isaac, Aaron Gordon and Nikola Vuceciv. While Afflalo will be drawing the start tonight, we'd expect Mario Hezonja to pick up the majority of Simmons' minutes, so he's a far more attractive target than the 32-year-old veteran.

The Raptors are reportedly eying Arron Afflalo, should he reach a buyout agreement with the Magic.

The 32-year-old veteran doesn't make much sense on Orlando's roster, so he could certainly be a buyout candidate. However, regardless of the name across his jersey, he'll remain irrelevant in fantasy hoops.

Arron Afflalo has served his 2-game suspension and will be available on Tuesday vs. the Kings.

The Magic are 14th place in the East, so Afflalo's rest-of-season outlook is pretty bleak. He belongs on the waiver wire pretty much everywhere because the Magic will focus on their young talent going forward.
Jan 22 - 11:45 AM

Arron Afflalo has been suspended two games for throwing a punch at Nemanja Bjelica during Tuesday's game.

Afflalo threw a serious punch and this is somewhat lenient from the league. Wesley Iwundu and Mario Hezonja stand to gain a few extra minutes in his absence -- Afflalo is averaging 12.9 minutes this season, so there are no big fantasy implications.
Jan 18 - 4:45 PM

Magic coach Frank Vogel said he hasn't heard from the NBA about a possible suspension for Arron Afflalo.

We'd be very surprised if the NBA let this go unpunished, and it's possible that he will be suspended for multiple games. Assuming he's out, Wes Iwundu and Mario Hezonja could pick up some extra minutes vs. the Cavaliers.
Jan 18 - 12:36 PM

Arron Afflalo and Nemanja Bjelica were both ejected in the second quarter of Tuesday's game.

Both players were chirping at each other for a few minutes, but Afflalo started swinging when the two were competing for a rebound. Afflalo is likely looking at a suspension, but he shouldn't be owned in fantasy leagues anyways. While he's out, Wes Iwundu and Mario Hezonja could pick up some extra minutes.
Jan 16 - 7:50 PM

Arron Afflalo scored two points with one assist in nine minutes against the Bulls on Wednesday.

He is behind Wes Iwundu and the Magic are probably going to start playing their younger guys. Afflalo's upside isn't there to begin with.

Arron Afflalo (back) will be available to play Wednesday against the Bulls.

Afflalo will be returning from a three-game absence tonight, and with Evan Fournier (ankle) and Aaron Gordon (calf) unavailable, he could be looking at a start. That said, regardless of how Afflalo enters the game, he can't be considered a viable target in most settings.
Wed, Dec 20, 2017 01:29:00 PM

Arron Afflalo (back) was a full participant during Tuesday's practice.

He's officially being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Bulls, but him getting in a full practice is certainly an encouraging sign and we can expect to get another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround. If Afflalo is able to return from his three-game absence on Wednesday night, Shelvin Mack would likely head back to the second unit and Wes Iwundu would lose some minutes. Stay tuned.

Arron Afflalo (back spasms) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Chicago.

Afflalo has missed three straight games. With Evan Fournier (ankle) and Terrence Ross (knee) also sidelined, the Magic backcourt has been lacking depth. Shelvin Mack started at shooting guard on Sunday but tallied just two points, two assists and two boards in 27 minutes. D.J. Augustin scored 12 points in 30 minutes off the bench.

Arron Afflalo (back) will not suit up for Sunday's game against the Pistons.

With Afflalo, Evan Fournier (ankle) and Terrence Ross (knee) all watching from the sidelines tonight, Shelvin Mack will draw the start at the two-spot and there will be more minutes available for guys like D.J. Augustin and Mario Hezonja. The Magic play again on Wednesday in Chicago, and for now, we'll be considering Afflalo questionable for that one.
Sun, Dec 17, 2017 03:56:00 PM

Arron Afflalo (back spasms) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. Detroit.

Afflalo has missed two straight games due to the back issue. Evan Fournier (sprained right ankle) has already been ruled out for Sunday. Jonathan Isaac (ankle) is also listed as questionable, so there is a chance he returns. With the Magic backcourt depleted, D.J. Augustin and Shelvin Mack will continue to see additional minutes off the bench.

Arron Afflalo (back spasms) will not play Friday night vs. Portland.

Afflalo has been dealing with back spasms all week. This will be the second straight game he has missed. WIth Evan Fournier (ankle) also sidelined, the Magic are shorthanded on the wing. Mario Hezonja will start in place of Afflalo on Friday night. Hezonja had replaced Aaron Gordon (concussion) in each of the last two games and tallied 17 points, nine rebounds and four assists in 35 minutes on Wednesday. He's worth a look as a DFS flier on Friday.
Fri, Dec 15, 2017 11:20:00 AM

Arron Afflalo (back spasms) is questionable to play vs. Portland on Friday.

Afflalo was averaging 25.5 minutes in the two games before he got hurt, but those minutes aren't guaranteed -- Mario Hezonja is coming off a solid game on Wednesday, and Orlando could get Jonathan Isaac back this weekend.
