Evan Fournier returned from a knee injury and had nine points and three steals in 13 minutes on Wednesday.
Fournier was hot earlier in the season, but now that Vic Oladipo and Elfrid Payton are rolling, he doesn't figure to offer much value going forward, if any. Jan 14 - 10:14 PM

Evan Fournier (knee) has been cleared to play vs. the Rockets on Wednesday, though he said he isn't yet 100 percent healthy.

He missed two games with a sprained knee and his return is welcome news for Orlando with Tobias Harris (ankle) slated to sit out again. Fournier's return may take a couple minutes away from Victor Oladipo, and it makes Devyn Marble a considerably riskier play in daily formats.

Evan Fournier (knee) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

Coach Jacque Vaughn will evaluate Fournier at shootaround and will see how he feels prior to tip-off before making a decision. Should Fournier miss this one, Victor Oladipo will play all the minutes he can handle while Devyn Marble will benefit as well.

Evan Fournier (knee) will not play against the Bulls on Monday.

He has a hyper-extended knee and doesn't have a timetable to return. Fournier shouldn't be out for too long, but his owners can certainly entertain the idea of dropping him. Meanwhile, Luke Ridnour, Devyn Marble and Moe Harkless will benefit. Harkless played well in the second half on Tuesday and finished with six points on a 14.1 usage rate in 19 minutes.
Jan 12 - 6:37 PM

Evan Fournier (knee) is unlikely to play on Monday against the Bulls.

Fournier did not play on Saturday, and it's looking like the absence will extend into Monday's vs. Chicago. Without Fournier, guys like Ben Gordon and Moe Harkless could get a little more run off the bench.
Jan 12 - 11:55 AM

Evan Fournier (knee) will not play against the Blazers on Saturday.

He suffered the injury at the end of Friday's game was dealing with some pain. Considering it's a knee injury, it's tough to gauge how much time he'll miss. Meanwhile, the minutes will go with a slew of guys with Elfrid Payton, Ben Gordon, Mo Harkless and Devyn Marble getting some run. Payton is the only guy worth using in standard leagues.

Evan Fournier is questionable for Saturday's game vs. Portland after hyper-extending his knee during Friday's game.

He has been struggling to hold onto his value since being demoted from the starting lineup and this latest injury certainly isn't going to help things. If Fournier sits Victor Oladipo will likely play all the minutes he can handle while Ben Gordon may see some increased run off the bench.
Jan 10 - 12:08 PM

Evan Fournier hyper-extended one of his knees on Friday but said the injury wasn't serious.

We don't put players that are probable to play on the injury report anymore and that's the case with Fournier. He scored 11 points with two assists in 19 minutes and that's it, and owners not cool with that can certainly move on.
Jan 10 - 3:14 AM

Evan Fournier scored 12 points with one rebound, four assists and two triples in 28 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Fournier has been hanging on in 12-14 team leagues as an end-of-the-bench guy for owners and tonight's result kept him on that plan.
Jan 2 - 10:05 PM

Evan Fournier didn't make any attempts from the field and was just 2-of-4 from the line for two points with six rebounds, three assists, two steals and three turnovers in 32 minutes on Monday.

Sure, it's a bad game, but Fournier is still seeing plenty of minutes. He's played in at least 31 minutes in each of his last four and is doing a little bit of everything, so he'll remain as an end-of-the-bench, low-upside player in standard leagues.

Evan Fournier played 34 minutes off the bench on Friday with 15 points, four rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

Despite being moved to the bench, Fournier's playing time has not taken a hit. He did have some foul trouble in his first game off the bench on Sunday and it would appear coach Jacque Vaughn has him penciled in for around 30 minutes. He's a low-end player to own in standard leagues.

Evan Fournier shifted to a bench role on Sunday, scoring 16 points with three 3-pointers, two rebounds, one assist and three turnovers in 27 minutes vs. the Sixers.

Magic coach Jacque Vaughn praised Fournier before the game, citing his impressive size and ability to play multiple positions, but it's tough to sugarcoat this demotion for fantasy purposes. He's averaged 33.2 minutes per game in 28 starts this season but played only 27 minutes on Sunday -- if that becomes a trend he could fall out of standard-league contention, and owners should keep a close eye on his production this week.

Evan Fournier, who scored 21 points during Friday's game against the Jazz, is drawing high praise from coach Jacque Vaughn.

"Evan’s been really good for us," coach Jacque Vaughn said. "I’ve been really pleased at his ability to guard two men [at different positions]. He is big for his size so that gives us a great luxury, and then he’s done a lot of other things that he did previously as far as shooting the basketball, having the basketball in his hands. We’ll give it to him at the end of quarters, so he’ll give us another ballhandler on the floor." Fournier has improved tremendously this season, and the move to Orlando has done wonders for his fantasy value. As long as he keeps this up, he will be worth owning in standard leagues.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 09:11:00 AM

Evan Fournier hit four 3-point shots in Friday's home loss to the Jazz, finishing with 21 points on 7-of-16 shooting, three rebounds and four assists in 39 minutes.

Fournier has turned things around over the past week and he's worth a look while he's hot. When the Magic are at full strength he could find himself getting added and dropped quite a bit as he goes up and down the ladder.
Fri, Dec 19, 2014 11:31:00 PM

Evan Fournier is expected to go through a full practice on Tuesday.

Fournier took an elbow from Tyler Hansbrough during Monday's game that sent him to the locker room, but he was able to return, and it's not looking like he'll be forced to miss any time. We'll consider him probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Celtics, but owners will want to check back for an official update closer to tip-off.
