Terrence Ross logged 27 minutes on Wednesday but he attempted just five shots, making two of them to finish with five points, four rebounds, three steals and two assists.
One of Ross' makes came from downtown, so this wasn't a terrible line for roto purposes, but most points-league owners have already moved on due to his low scoring (9.2 points per game) and lack of peripheral stats. He's yet to play 30 minutes in a game this month, and is a steals-and-threes specialist until further notice. Nov 16 - 1:42 AM

Terrence Ross said he's not worried that he's only managed to connect on 30.9 percent of his shot attempts through the first 10 games of the season.

"I’ve just got to get into a better rhythm," Ross said. "But it’s still early in the season. I’m not worried about it. I’ll just keep shooting. One night you’ll catch fire and you’ll get back to yourself. But you can’t really think about why [you’re struggling] too much because there are so many more games you have. It’s not even three months into the season." While Ross could get hot at any moment, he's not worth hanging onto while he's performing this poorly in most leagues.
Nov 7 - 4:56 PM

Terrence Ross made just 2-of-12 shots to score nine points on Sunday, adding one steal with zero rebounds, assists, blocks or 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

Ross ran the second-unit offense at times tonight and coach Frank Vogel is still looking for ways to jumpstart him -- he's shooting 32.9 percent this season, far worse than his previous career-low. With poor supporting stats and minutes that have trended down since last season, Ross can be cut in typical leagues.
Nov 5 - 8:59 PM

Terrence Ross finally got going on Sunday, making 6-of-15 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs for 17 points, five rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

In his previous three games, T-Ross was a combined 2-of-22 from the field, without a single 3-point make, so he really needed this performance. The bad news is that Jonathan Isaac (illness) was out tonight, which contributed to Ross playing a season-high 34 minutes -- he averaged just 24.0 minutes in the previous three games.

Terrence Ross scored two points with seven rebounds, one block and one steal in 24 minutes against the Spurs on Friday.

That's not good after a zero-point dud on Tuesday. Jonathon Simmons is coming after his minutes right now, so Ross really needs a strong game in the near future to keep his job. If you want to drop Ross for a hot free agent, it's not a bad idea.
Oct 27 - 9:40 PM

Terrence Ross finished scoreless in 25 minutes vs. the Nets on Tuesday, missing all five of his shots from the field.

He managed just one rebound, one assist, one steal and one block. After opening the season with two double-digit scoring efforts, Ross has now scored a combined three points on 1-of-16 shooting in his last two. If Ross doesn't turn things around quickly, Jonathon Simmons (12 points in 23 minutes) could leapfrog him.

Terrence Ross managed to score just three points across 22 minutes in Saturday's blowout win at Cleveland.

Ross misfired on 10-of-11 field goal attempts, winding up with one bucket and one successful free throw while adding three rebounds and two assists. He was one of few Magic players struggling, as Orlando snapped a 17-game losing streak to the Cavaliers dating back to Nov. 23, 2012.
Oct 21 - 10:38 PM

Terrence Ross (hamstring) played 31 minutes on Wednesday, posting 15 points (5-of-11 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), six rebounds, four assists, three 3-pointers, two steals and one block.

The arrival of Jonathon Simmons and rookie Jonathan Isaac doesn't help Ross' season-long outlook, but you won't find owners complaining tonight. He's a viable source of 3-pointers and steals, with solid FT percentages, but don't expect too many all-around gems.
Oct 19 - 12:38 AM

Elfrid Payton, Terrence Ross, Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon and Nikola Vucevic will start against the Heat on Wednesday.

Ross has been expected to start for most of the day despite an injured hamstring and Jonathon Simmons going off late in the preseason. Ross could find himself getting minutes at both wing spots, but it'll definitely be worth watching to see if Simmons can push him for the lion's share of minutes.
Oct 18 - 5:20 PM

Terrence Ross (hamstring) is expected to start at shooting guard in Wednesday's season opener against the Heat.

Ross got through shootaround without any issues, so he should be looking at a full complement of minutes tonight as Orlando's starting two-man. He was a top-90 guy with the Magic last season, posting averages of 12.2 points, 1.9 triples and 1.4 steals per contest on 43.2 percent shooting, and he'll look to build on those numbers in his first full year in Orlando.
Oct 18 - 11:22 AM

Coach Frank Vogel said Terrence Ross (hamstring) practiced on Tuesday and will be re-evaluated on Wednesday, but hopes to play in the season opener vs. Miami.

After being considered questionable earlier in the week, it appears Ross is trending in the right direction. However, we'll have to wait for an update after shootaround on Wednesday. This could come down to a game-time decision. If Ross is unable to play, Jonathon Simmons would likely draw the start and would be an intriguing DFS play.
Oct 17 - 1:06 PM

Terrence Ross (hamstring) could miss Wednesday's season opener vs. Miami.

Ross had a hamstring issue last week and missed some preseason action, so it sounds like he tweaked it again. He wasn't able to practice on Monday and Magic beat writer John Denton said his status is in doubt, though Ross himself was a little more optimistic. If Ross is unable to play, Jonathon Simmons will likely be the biggest beneficiary and is coming off a phenomenal preseason, while Jonathan Isaac could also get a bump. Coach Frank Vogel is hopeful that Ross will practice on Tuesday, so that's when his owners can expect another update.
Oct 16 - 1:25 PM

Terrence Ross was back at practice on Saturday.

He missed Thursday's workout and he did not play due to an illness. Jonathon Simmons may have gained some ground on Ross to help the identity of how the Magic want to play. Plus, now that both Aaron Gordon and Nikola Vucevic are shooting treys, they don't need Ross for spacing as much. Still, Ross is a decent last-round flier in deeper leagues.
Oct 14 - 2:48 PM

Terrence Ross (illness) is not expected to play against the Cavs on Friday.

He had a minor hamstring injury earlier in the preseason, but it sounds like Ross is over his leg ailment. Jonathon Simmons has shined in the second unit and perhaps coach Frank Vogel will go with a defense-first approach in certain spots this season. Ross is really just a last-round flier.
Oct 12 - 2:52 PM

Terrence Ross (hamstring) will not suit up for Tuesday's preseason game against the Spurs.

Hamstring injuries can easily turn into lingering issues, so the Magic will wisely be keeping Ross the sidelines for these exhibition games. He should be fine once the regular season rolls around, and he's someone to consider towards the later rounds on draft day for those seeking some 3-point shooting.
