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. Dec 15 - 11:20 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.

Arron Afflalo (back) will not play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

He didn't sound like he was going to play, so this was expected. With him out, the Magic are probably going to have to roll with more of their two-PG lineups with Shelvin Mack and D.J. Augustin. It's also possible Wes Iwundu gets in the starting lineup and could play minutes in the upper 20s. Iwundu probably won't be a usage monster, but give him a look as a DFS punt.
Dec 13 - 5:21 PM

Arron Afflalo (back) will be a game-time call for Wednesday's matchup with the Clippers.

The Magic are saying that Afflalo has a 50-50 shot of getting on the court tonight, but according to Orlando beat reporter Josh Robbins, Afflalo wasn't quite as optimistic following shootaround. If Afflalo isn't able to get out there, the Magic will be very thin on the wings, which would open up a lot of minutes for guys like D.J. Augustin, Shelvin Mack, Jonathon Simmons and Mario Hezonja, with Simmons offering the most upside. Check back closer to tip-off for another update.
Dec 13 - 11:17 AM

Arron Afflalo (back spasms) missed practice on Tuesday and is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Clippers.

Afflalo has started each of Orlando's two previous games in place of Evan Fournier (ankle). Fournier has already been ruled out of Wednesday's contest, so the Magic will be very shorthanded at shooting guard if Afflalo is unable to play. D.J. Augustin and Shelvin Mack would likely log extended minutes playing off the ball next to Elfrid Payton. Jonathon Simmons and Mario Hezonja would also log additional playing time on the wing.
Dec 12 - 12:10 PM

Arron Afflalo scored four points with one turnover in 25 minutes against the Hawks on Saturday.

The Magic should probably just start Wes Iwundu next time out, assuming Evan Fournier (ankle) can't go. Afflalo needs a ridiculous amount of volume to have value in fantasy and he's almost certainly not going to get it.
Dec 10 - 1:28 AM

Arron Afflalo started for Evan Fournier (ankle) against the Nuggets on Friday, but didn't do much with six points, four boards and one block on 2-of-5 shooting.

Wes Iwundu also saw a bump in playing time with 16 minutes, but even with Fournier expected to be out a good bit, it's hard to get excited about either of these players.
Dec 8 - 11:09 PM

Arron Afflalo will start for Evan Fournier (ankle) against the Nuggets on Friday.

This is foreign territory for the Magic and their new starting lineup has played together for just six minutes. Coach Frank Vogel also said it'll be "by committee" to replace Fournier, which means we should see more D.J. Augustin and maybe more Wes Iwundu. Maybe coach Vogel plays Mario Hezonja, but it's certainly not a lock. Beside the other four starters getting a bump, it's really tough to count on Afflalo in fantasy.
Dec 8 - 5:17 PM

Arron Afflalo scored two ponts in 16 minutes against the Warriors on Friday.

He was the first wing off the bench, but there's really no reason to play him. Afflalo will almost certainly be out of the rotation once Jonathan Isaac (ankle) is back.
Dec 1 - 9:46 PM

While coach Frank Vogel said it will be a by-committee approach to replace Terrence Ross (knee), Arron Afflalo is expected to see the first opportunity.

It's also possible the Magic do run some two-PG lineups with more D.J. Augustin and Shelvin Mack. There's really nothing to like here in fantasy unless you're in a deep league and perhaps the best move is to stash Jonathan Isaac, excluding adding Jonathon Simmons in 12-team leagues, of course.
Nov 30 - 4:39 PM

Arron Afflalo did not score with one rebound and one block in 16 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday.

He entered the rotation in Terrence Ross' spot as the main backup wing. Afflalo needs some serious volume to have fantasy value, so there's really no reason to add him unless you're in a 24-plus team league.
Nov 29 - 10:42 PM

Arron Afflalo scored two points in seven minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

He's probably going to be in the rotation and he may get point guard minutes out of desperation. Afflalo is not a pickup almost anywhere, though.
Nov 2 - 1:07 AM

Arron Afflalo didn't play in Wednesday's season opener vs. the Heat.

Afflalo had a back issue earlier in October, but this looks more like a DNP-CD. Marreese Speights was also a DNP tonight and neither veteran is likely to have a big on-court impact for a Magic squad that's developing their young guys.
Oct 19 - 12:39 AM

Arron Afflalo (back) returned to practice on Tuesday.

Afflalo has been dealing with back issues that have kept him off the court for the past several days, but it seems as though he's on the mend. As for fantasy hoops, Afflalo is not someone we'd recommend targeting in most leagues.
Oct 3 - 7:03 PM

Arron Afflalo (back) will not suit up for Monday's preseason game against Memphis.

Afflalo is dealing with some back issues, but he's expected to practice on Tuesday, so this seems relatively minor. As for fantasy hoops, Afflalo's minutes will likely be in the low-20s on most nights, so he won't see enough floor time to make an impact in most leagues.
