Shelvin Mack scored five points with six assists, three rebounds and one steal vs. the Bulls on Monday.
He played 26 minutes compared to 22 for D.J. Augustin and nearly helped the Magic fight their way back from 18 points down. This was his second game in a row outplaying Augustin and he also closed this one, so he's worth keeping an eye on in case he steals the starting job. Feb 12 - 11:18 PM

Shelvin Mack ended up with 19 points over 28 minutes in Saturday's 111-104 loss against Milwaukee.

Mack posted a season-high in assists and his first double-double of the season. It was also the sixth double-double of his NBA career. D.J. Augustin didn't do much in a starting role, so Mack had the hot hand and was given a few more minutes. He has some short-term fantasy appeal in deeper leagues while Aaron Gordon (hip) is on the mend.

Shelvin Mack scored nine points with one rebound three assists, one steal and no turnovers in 22 minutes against the Hawks on Thursdya.

He still saw some overlap with D.J. Augustin, so Mack should still be able to carve out a role in the 24-26 minute range most nights at least until Aaron Gordon (hip) gets back. DJA is a better add in all leagues, but Mack could be a sneaky player to add in 16-team leagues.
Feb 8 - 9:57 PM

Orlando coach Frank Vogel praised Shelvin Mack for his recent play off the bench.

``Being comfortable has allowed him to go out and just play his game. He’s not forcing it and he’s the ultimate, `play-within-himself’ player," Vogel said. "He’s never going to force it and he looks really good of late. He’s a big reason why our offense has been clicking the way it has of late.’’ The Magic have been shorthanded lately and have been using more two-PG lineups. He's scored in double digits in three straight games with 13 total assists in that span, but maybe the Magic are just showcasing his expiring contract for a trade.

Shelvin Mack came off the bench for 15 points, two 3-pointers, six rebounds and four assists, and hit all five of his shots in Tuesday's loss to the Rockets.

Additionally, D.J. Augustin hit 4-of-10 shots and three 3-pointers for 13 points, three rebounds and four assists in the 114-107 loss. Elfrid Payton was benched with Mack and DJA's "hot hands" given as the reason, so we'll have to see what happens on Wednesday night against the Lakers. Chances are Payton will be back out there and get his 30 or so minutes, meaning Mack and Augustin are simply guys to keep an eye on in case Payton lost a grip on his job tonight. James Harden's 60-point triple-double just might have done some damage to Payton's short-term future in Orlando, although it also may not have hurt him at all.
Jan 30 - 11:48 PM

Shelvin Mack posted just one point with two rebounds, an assist and three turnovers across 17 minutes in Friday's loss against the Pelicans.

Mack was unable to take advantage of the struggles of D.J. Augustin, who was supposedly plugged into the lineup for his shooting ability. He finished 0-for-3 from the field just like Augustin and the three turnovers in just 17 minutes isn't likely to buy him a larger chunk of playing time in the near future.

Shelvin Mack scored five points with three rebounds, three assists and two turnovers in 18 minutes against the Bulls on Wednesday.

The Magic really need Evan Fournier back. Mack has very little fantasy value while Elfrid Payton is healthy.

Shelvin Mack will return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

He's being replaced by Wes Iwundu, and with Arron Afflalo (back) getting back to the court tonight, Mack might be looking at minutes in the teens. He's not a viable target in any setting.

Shelvin Mack started Sunday's game for the short-handed Magic, but he had just two points, two rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes.

Frank Vogel opted to start small tonight with Mack alongside Elfrid Payton, Mario Hezonja, Jonathon Simmons and Nikola Vucevic. Orlando fell behind by 13 points after one quarter, however, and Mack wound up playing less than backup guard D.J. Augustin (12 points, one assist in 30 minutes). He should be left on the wire.

Shelvin Mack will be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Pistons.

Mack will slide into the starting five with Evan Fournier (ankle) unavailable and he'll be joined by Elfrid Payton, Jonathon Simmons, Mario Hezonja and Nikola Vucevic. In two starts this season, Mack has compiled averages of 4.5 points, 8.0 assists and 1.0 steal per game on 21.4% shooting, so he's not much more than a low-end punt play in daily leagues.

Shelvin Mack scored nine points with four rebounds, one assist, two 3-pointers and a season-high nine assists in 26 minutes against the Hawks on Saturday.

Revenge game? Mack was terrific as he set up his teammates well all night as coach Frank Vogel went with the small lineup combinations he has all season due to so many injuries. Vogel may not be able to get away with that against the Clippers, so trusting Mack could be a gamble. Plus, that game isn't until Dec. 13. Leave him on the wire.

Shelvin Mack did not score with five rebounds and one assist in 11 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday.

He checked in with 10:34 left in the fourth with the score at 103-67, so he was not in the rotation. Mack moves into the background while D.J. Augustin and Elfrid Payton are healthy.

Shelvin Mack returned to the bench on Monday vs. the Warriors, scoring four points with six assists and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.

Elfrid Payton was back in action, but he's being brought along slowly due to soreness in his hamstring. Mack will eventually be demoted back to third-string PG when D.J. Augustin (hamstring) returns, so his owners should find a player with a better long-term outlook.

Shelvin Mack scored seven points in a start at point guard with one rebound, eight assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes against the Nuggets on Saturday.

While he does start at point guard, Mack is basically a shooting guard and doesn't really handle the ball much. Elfrid Payton (hamstring) is fully expected to be ready for Monday, so put Mack back on the wire.
Sun, Nov 12, 2017 12:20:00 AM

Shelvin Mack will start against the Nuggets on Saturday.

He hasn't been very good as a starter and Jonathon Simmons has clearly outplayed him when the Magic didn't have Elfrid Payton (hamstring) like tonight. Mack is still a decent stream, but we like Simmons a lot in this matchup.
