Evan Fournier (ankle) is listed as "out" on the injury report for Wednesday's game vs. the Clippers.
Fournier, who has missed two straight games since rolling his ankle last week, has downplayed the severity of the sprain. We should have an update on his status following the Magic's shootaround Wednesday morning. Arron Afflalo (back) has started in place of Fournier in each of Orlando's last two games but is listed as questionable for Wednesday. D.J. Augustin and Shelvin Mack would likely see extended time at SG if Afflalo is ruled out. Dec 12 - 11:43 AM

Evan Fournier (ankle) said he thinks he's day-to-day.

"It shouldn’t be too long, honestly," Fournier said over the weekend. "I don’t know what it’s going to be like. It’s going to be day-to-day, obviously. I’m pretty positive." An MRI confirmed that he has a sprained right ankle, but Fournier doesn't believe it will keep him out as long as Jonathan Isaac's ankle injury -- the rookie has missed 15 games and counting. Fournier's owners just need to keep him stashed at the end of their rosters or in an I.R. slot for the time being and hope for a speedy recovery.

Evan Fournier (ankle) will not play Friday vs. Denver and will not make the trip to Atlanta for Saturday's game vs. the Hawks.

An MRI has confirmed that Fournier sprained his right ankle. According to beat writer Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel, it "seems likely" the Magic will be without Fournier "for the foreseeable future." Orlando will be shorthanded, as both Terrence Ross (knee) and Jonathan Isaac (ankle) are also out. Arron Afflalo is expected to draw the start at shooting guard on Friday. D.J. Augustin, Mario Hezonja, Wes Iwundu and Shelvin Mack will also likely see an uptick in playing time.
Dec 8 - 9:51 AM

Evan Fournier (ankle) has already been listed as out for Friday's game vs. Denver.

He'll have an MRI later on Friday, but the Magic seem to preparing to be without Fournier for a bit. D.J. Augustin stepped up in his place on Wednesday and should be on your radar, but Jonathan Isaac's (ankle) stash appeal is also growing by the day. Arron Afflalo could also be more involved, but he's not an add in most formats.
Dec 7 - 11:30 AM

Evan Fournier suffered a sprained right ankle tonight during overtime vs. Atlanta on Wednesday.

X-rays were negative and he will undergo further evaluation on Thursday. The ankle sprain did not look good as he barely put weight on it as he went to the locker room. After the injury, D.J. Augustin was the answer for the Magic, but we should also see more Arron Afflalo and maybe Wes Iwundu. If you want to add DJA in a deep league, hopefully you're not dropping something you'll miss.
Dec 6 - 10:40 PM

Evan Fournier (right ankle) went to the locker room in overtime on Wednesday.

It didn't look good. Fournier went up for a shot in the paint and his right ankle landed on Nikola Vucevic's foot. Fournier did shoot the free throw, but he fouled at his first opportunity to check out. He needed help from two people to get off the floor. If he's out, the Magic may have to call on Arron Afflalo even more and bring Wes Iwundu into the rotation, but we could see more D.J. Augustin as well. Fournier turned in a gem with 27 points, four rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers.
Dec 6 - 9:28 PM

Evan Fournier scored 20 points on 5-of-12 shooting Sunday to go with three rebounds, four assists, one 3-pointer, two steals, one block and two turnovers in 37 minutes.

Fournier also connected on nine of his 10 freebies, giving him a sterling 61.0 true shooting percentage on the evening, and he drained four clutch free throws during crunch time to keep Orlando on top. He leads the Magic in 20-plus-point performances this season and is hitting career-highs in points (18.0) and triples (2.3) to go with averages of 3.2 dimes and 1.1 steals, which has him flirting with top-40 value on the season.
Dec 3 - 7:05 PM

Evan Fournier scored 22 points with one rebound, five assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Warriors on Friday.

It looked like he was in for a big game with 11 of the first 15 Magic points in this game, but the Warriors paid a little more attention to him as the game progressed. It's fair to say Fournier has peaked already this season as he really cleaned up while Elfrid Payton was out last month. Expect Fournier to be a mid-round guy going forward.
Dec 1 - 9:54 PM

Evan Fournier scored 13 points on 4-of-8 shooting Saturday, to go with two rebounds, two 3-pointers, one steal, one assist and two turnovers in 32 minutes.

Fournier was very passive to open the game, not attempting his first shot until late in the second quarter (a missed layup), but he turned things around after halftime and produced a useful stat line. That said, he's been trending down in a major way over the past few weeks with averages of 14.9 points, 1.9 triples, 1.9 assists and not much else on 40.4% shooting. The shooting percentage should come up, but expecting him to return to an early-round guy might be a bit of a reach.
Nov 25 - 10:06 PM

Evan Fournier made 3-of-13 from the field for seven points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in just 19 minutes.

He did not start the second half because the Magic were down 26 at halftime. Fournier did check back in during the second half, but perhaps the playing time was dialed back because of a back-to-back set tomorrow. The Magic can't get things going right now and it wouldn't be crazy to think Elfrid Payton moves to the bench, which would help Fournier.
Nov 24 - 9:50 PM

Evan Fournier swiped a career-high-tying five steals on Wednesday, adding 23 points on 9-of-16 shooting, three 3-pointers, five assists, two rebounds and one block.

Fournier had all five steals by halftime tonight as his dream season continues. Despite going just 2-of-14 for six points on Sunday, he came in shooting 50.7 percent (47.4 from deep) with enough all-around stats for top-20 value in roto leagues. He's loving life in Orlando's up-tempo system, and projects as a great rest-of-season value, but the elite production feels like a high-water mark.
Nov 8 - 10:45 PM

Evan Fournier finally cooled off on Sunday, going 2-of-14 from the field to finish with six points, two 3-pointers, four rebounds and two assists.

Fournier has been on fire this season with 21.9 points on 54.5 percent shooting, including 52.1 percent from downtown. Boston is limiting SFs to 23.4 percent shooting from deep, however, and Fournier never quite got comfortable against their long, athletic group of swingmen. His scorching start was never totally sustainable, but he'll fare better vs. the Knicks' defense on Wednesday.
Nov 5 - 8:59 PM

Evan Fournier scored a team-high 21 points in Friday's 105-83 blowout loss to the Bulls.

Fournier was just one of three Magic players with double-digit points, and they were run out of the building by the third quarter. Fournier hit 9-of-17 shots and 2-of-2 free throws with five rebounds, three assists, one steal and a triple, and he ran the offense a lot tonight with both Elfrid Payton (hamstring) and D.J. Augustin (hamstring) out. It sounds like Payton could be back on Sunday, but Fournier will be a strong play no matter what and is absolutely rolling with top-12 value in standard 9-category leagues.
Nov 3 - 9:55 PM

Evan Fournier scored 25 points on 10-of-12 from the field against the Spurs on Friday, adding five rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

That gives him a 100.0 eFG% to boost him to 63.5 eFG% in the young season. He is an absolute maestro in pick-and-roll sets this year, leading all players in points per possession this year (minimum of 16 possessions, including passes, per Synergy). He saw his best run last year when Elfrid Payton (hamstring) went down, so that is part of the equation of him dominating right now. He's looking like a draft day steal, but it's certainly not going to be easy for him to stay this hot.
Oct 27 - 9:53 PM

Evan Fournier had the best game of the young season on Tuesday vs. Brooklyn, notching a season-high 28 points on 9-of-15 shots.

He was also a perfect 8-of-8 from the line, adding six rebounds, three assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes. Fournier is loving life in Orlando's small-ball lineups and is taking advantage of a short-term boost in value with Elfrid Payton sidelined by a hamstring issue. After a down a season in 2016-17, Fournier looks poised to return mid-round value this time around.
