Evan Fournier (knee), Jonathan Isaac (ankle) and Jonathon Simmons (wrist) will miss Orlando's regular-season finale against Washington.
Fournier never got back to the court after going down with a knee sprain on March 8, and both Isaac and Simmons have been out for a while now. Mario Hezonja will continue to log big minutes with all these guys out, and he's on the radar in DFS with what should be an uptempo matchup against the Wizards. Apr 11 - 12:06 PM

Evan Fournier (knee) is "unlikely" to play before the end of this season, coach Frank Vogel said.

This isn't surprising at all and the Magic will want to get a look at some of their other guys. Fournier should have been dropped weeks ago after the team announced his MCL sprain.
Mar 28 - 5:28 PM

Evan Fournier (left knee sprain) and Terrence Ross (right knee) are still "not close" to making a return to the court.

Fournier has been out since March 8, and with no clear return date in sight, he belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues; the same goes for Ross. Jonathon Simmons and Mario Hezonja will pick up the slack in their absence, with Simmons offering a bit more upside.

Evan Fournier (knee) said he thinks he can return at some point this season.

"That would be really disappointing to end my season like that," Fournier said about his MCL sprain he suffered on Wednesday. It's almost always discouraging when a player is talking about hopes to play later this season, especially when the Magic have high lottery position. If you need games right now, he's a drop candidate. Meanwhile, Jonathan Isaac, Jonathon Simmons and Mario Hezonja will be stepping up with more fantasy value headed their way.
Mar 8 - 9:06 PM

Evan Fournier (knee) has a sprained left MCL and will not play Friday night in Sacramento.

He suffered the injury on Wednesday and did not return. The severity of the injury isn't known, and it's possible he's only day-to-day. Although, the Magic sit in the No. 4 spot in the lottery and chances are they'll be bringing back Fournier slowly. Fantasy owners can consider dropping him in certain situations, assuming they need him for the next week or so and don't have an IR spot. With him out, it'll be Jonathon Simmons, Mario Hezonja and Jonathan Isaac seeing more run, and are all worth a look depending on what you need. Wes Iwundu could be getting more minutes, but he's not a fantasy option.

Evan Fournier (left knee sprain) will not return on Wednesday.

Fournier and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope were wrangling for position in the post when the injury occurred, and we're listing him as day-to-day until Orlando updates his status. Orlando was already eager to get Jonathan Isaac more involved in the rotation, and Mario Hezonja should also get a boost if Fournier misses time with the injury. Details are scarce at the moment and owners should hold tight until we know more.
Mar 8 - 12:16 AM

Evan Fournier hit just 4-of-18 shots and 2-of-10 3-pointers for 12 points, two rebounds and two assists in 32 minutes of Monday's 94-80 loss to the Jazz.

This was Fournier's lowest point total since he had 11 on Feb. 3, as well as one of his worst shooting nights of the year. His last single-digit scoring night came way back on Nov. 24, so it was nice to see him keep the streak alive on such a bad night. The Magic haven't shown signs of sitting their starters in a lost season, so just keep rolling Fournier out there until further notice.
Mar 5 - 11:22 PM

Evan Fournier scored 16 points with six rebounds, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes against the 76ers on Saturday.

He was very quiet until the fourth quarter when the Magic had their best five players against the Philly garbage-time unit. Fournier should be good to go and the Magic haven't said anything about resting him yet. Fire him up in all leagues next week.
Feb 24 - 7:32 PM

Evan Fournier cooled off on Wednesday with 13 points on 5-of-15 shooting, adding two steals, one rebound and one assist in 30 minutes.

Fournier admitted that the Hornets have "kicked [Orlando's] ass the last few years," and his team wanted payback, but they fell short in a 104-102 home loss tonight. Fournier was cruising over his past five games with 19.2 points on 52.1% shooting, so we'll give him a pass for tonight's relative dud.
Feb 14 - 10:25 PM

Evan Fournier ended up with 20 points across 29 minutes in Saturday's home loss against the Bucks.

Fournier hit 8-of-15 from the field, including 2-of-5 from behind the 3-point line, while going 2-of-2 from the free-throw stripe. He also chipped in with a pair of rebounds, an assist and a steal with three turnovers. Fournier appears to be relieved he wasn't dealt at the trade deadline, averaging 20.3 PPG over his past three outings. The Frenchman also has scored in double digits in a team-high 45 games this season. He also has at least one 3-pointer in each of his past 14 outings dating back to Jan. 9.
Feb 10 - 9:59 PM

Evan Fournier scored 22 points with three rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Hawks on Thursday.

He wasn't traded and he will continue to get plenty of shots on a team lacking offensive depth. Earlier today, Fournier had a good comment about the upcoming trade deadline. "We have a game tonight, so it's a regular day. The trade deadline is during the nap. So I'm going to take my nap, and when I wake up, I wake up. We'll see what happens," he said. His fantasy owners should be happy he's still around.
Feb 8 - 10:03 PM

Evan Fournier scored 19 points with six rebounds, three assists, one steal and one triple in 37 minutes.

He came into tonight's game ranking 9th in the NBA in free throw percentage at 89.8%, but hit just 4-of-9 from there Tuesday. He did hit 7-of-13 shots from the field and played 37 minutes after playing less than 30 minutes in his previous four games. Fournier's name has been in the rumor mill this season and Chris Mannix of Yahoo Sports said the Magic are "open for business," so it's possible this was his last game in a Magic uniform.
Feb 6 - 10:57 PM

Evan Fournier finished Saturday's loss 115-98 blowout loss to the Wizards with more shot attempts (12) than points (11).

Fournier added just one assist, one steal, and one 3-pointer, but at least he didn't turn the ball over. This was a forgettable game for the entire Orlando starting five, and hopefully, they'll be better in their next one.
Feb 3 - 10:04 PM

Evan Fournier (ankle) will be in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rockets.

Fournier tweaked his ankle on Saturday, but played through it and got in a full practice on Monday, so he shouldn't have any sort of restrictions tonight. With Aaron Gordon (hip) out, Fournier should have plenty of shots coming his way. He'll be joined in the starting unit by Elfrid Payton, Mario Hezonja, Jonathon Simmons and Bismack Biyombo.
Jan 30 - 6:39 PM

Evan Fournier (ankle) practiced in full on Monday.

He rolled his ankle during Saturday's game, but he was able to close the game and it sounds like he'll be ready to go on Tuesday vs. the Rockets. He could have more shots coming his way if Aaron Gordon (hip) can't go.
