Evan Fournier (right ankle) went through practice on Thursday and is expected to play against the Cavs on Friday.
He did not play on Monday or Tuesday, which has helped guys like Jonathon Simmons and Jonathan Isaac to showcase their talents. Fournier will be starting and playing minutes around 30, so he'll be a solid late-mid round pick in standard drafts. Oct 12 - 2:55 PM

Evan Fournier (right ankle) will not play on Tuesday vs. San Antonio.

Coach Frank Vogel said earlier in the week that Fournier would play if this was a regular season game, so they are just holding him out as a precaution. He'll be a full go for the season opener on Oct. 18 vs. the Heat.

Evan Fournier (right ankle) is questionable to play in Tuesday's exhibition against the Spurs.

Questionable typically translates to out during the preseason, as there's no reason for these guys to risk suffering a setback with the games being meaningless. His next opportunity to play will come Friday vs. Cleveland, but don't expect him to be out there if there's any doubt at all about the health of his ankle.
Oct 10 - 6:19 PM

Evan Fournier (ankle) won't play on Monday vs. Dallas.

His injury isn't serious and it's probably more of a night off to rest. Fournier will start on the wings this season next to Terrence Ross and should benefit from the pace of Orlando's small-ball lineup. He's a bargain at his late-round ADP.
Oct 9 - 7:11 PM

Evan Fournier scored eight points with one rebound, three assists and two 3-pointers in 15 minutes against the Mavs on Thursday.

He scored eight points in 15 minutes in the preseason opener, as well. Fournier is going to start and he should be able to clear 30 minutes again with scoring in the upper teens. He's not a trendy pick and Jonathan Isaac could take a few minutes from him, but Fournier is a really solid pick in the second half of your draft.
Oct 5 - 9:32 PM

Evan Fournier fouled out in just 18 minutes of action during France's loss to Slovenia on Wednesday, finishing with 11 points, two 3-pointers, one rebound, two steals and one turnover.

Fournier hasn't played all that well at the EuroBasket tournament thus far, owning averages of 13.6 points, 1.4 treys, 1.6 assists and 1.0 steal through five games of tournament play, although some of that has to do with France's coaching staff not utilizing Fournier as a primary option on offense. While Fournier did hit career-highs in points (17.2) and assists (3.0) last season, he only managed to make it through 68 games and shot a less-than-stellar 43.9 percent from the field, so he won't be worth much more than a late-round pick on draft day.

Evan Fournier hasn't decided if he will play for France at Eurobasket this summer.

"Soon I will meet coach Collet and then we’ll see," Fournier said in an interview with L'Equipe. "I will soon see a wrist specialist. And my summer will depend on what he will tell me. My experience with France is not over. I did not put a cross on it. I am not retiring internationally." The big takeaway here is that he's seeing a wrist specialist, so we'll look for an update on that front in the coming days. For what it's worth, Fournier has missed some time in each of the last two seasons with a sore right wrist.

Evan Fournier said there could be a lot of changes in Orlando this offseason.

`When you lose, that’s really when things shake up and teams make a lot of changes," Fournier said. "So, yeah, everyone is fully aware [that changes could come]. I’m not the type of guy who is concerned by that sort of thing." Fournier is under contract for at least three more seasons with a player option in 2020-21, so it's tough to see the Magic moving on from him at this point. Fournier didn't live up the expectations of his new deal this season, averaging 17.2 points on 43.9 percent shooting with 3.1 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.9 triples.
Apr 13 - 11:28 AM

Evan Fournier (calf) finished with 14 points, three assists and a blocked shot over 28 minutes in Monday's blowout loss at Chicago.

Fournier did not appear to show any after effects of his calf injury, and the only reason he didn't play more was likely due to the lopsided nature of the score and the fact he was returning from an ailment. It appears safe to get him back into the active lineup for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Pistons.
Apr 10 - 11:52 PM

Evan Fournier (calf) is starting on Monday vs. the Bulls.

Fournier was listed as questionable in the game notes with a strained left calf, so his sore left wrist from last week is likely behind him. Feel free to deploy him in season-long lineups, but his minutes might be monitored with the Magic playing for lottery balls.
Apr 10 - 7:26 PM

Evan Fournier (calf) is listed as questionable in the game notes for Monday's contest vs. the Bulls.

He missed a game on Apr. 6 with a sore left wrist, but now he's dealing with a strained left calf. The Magic are tied with Philly for the 4th worst record in the NBA, so they have some incentive to hold Fournier out. If he sits, the Magic could give his minutes to Jodie Meeks or take a look at some of their younger players.
Apr 9 - 1:32 PM

Evan Fournier scored 23 points with two rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday.

He only had soreness in his wrist and needed just one game off. The Magic have hinted they will play their younger guys more often, but that didn't happen today. That plan may change on Monday in Chicago. Feel free to keep firing up Fournier unless we hear otherwise.
Apr 8 - 8:43 PM

Evan Fournier (wrist) is in the starting lineup against the Pacers on Saturday.

It'll be the usual Elfrid Payton, Fournier, Terrence Ross, Aaron Gordon and Nikola Vucevic lineup today. The Magic are tied with the 76ers for the No. 4 and 5 spots in the lottery, so we'll see if they go with a youth movement in the second half. There is some risk on any Magic player right now. There isn't quite as much risk on Payton, though.
Apr 8 - 5:20 PM

Evan Fournier (sore right wrist) said he will play Saturday vs. the Pacers.

Fournier was unable to play Thursday vs. Brooklyn. Jodie Meeks, who started in place of Fournier on Thursday, will get bumped back to the bench on Saturday. Mario Hezonja will also likely log fewer minutes.
Apr 7 - 1:43 PM

Evan Fournier (sore right wrist) will not play against the Nets on Thursday.

This is a new injury for Fournier, who will miss his first game since January. Of course, you have to think about the tank factor here with the Magic just 1.0 games "ahead" of the 76ers for the No. 4 spot in the lottery. With Fournier out, Jodie Meeks figures to get some extra run and could start. Mario Hezonja has also played well and could have a good game. There will be more play-making chances for Terrence Ross and Elfrid Payton, as well.
