Evan Fournier said he thinks the Magic have the pieces in place to make a jump next season, but added that significant individual improvement is needed.
It's unclear if Fournier was talking about himself or each individual player on the team, but did add that he'd like to sign an extension with the Magic. He's eligible to sign an extension before November 1, but Fournier said he understood those usually go to stars. The 22-year-old has potential, but will be stuck playing behind Elfrid Payton and Victor Oladipo next season and is thus limited to more of a deep league fantasy option. Apr 16 - 1:30 PM

Date:

Evan Fournier (sore right hip) will not play against the Nets on Wednesday.

It'll be his third game out to close the season. The Magic will give more minutes to Willie Green tonight while Aaron Gordon also benefits slightly because of minutes opening up overall. Fournier won't have much fantasy value next season, especially with the Magic likely to have a high lottery pick.
Apr 15 - 6:29 PM

Evan Fournier (core issue) will not play against the Heat on Monday.

He missed Saturday and now we know why. Fournier hasn't been healthy for a few weeks and he's likely out for the season. Expect Willie Green to get minutes close to 20.
Apr 13 - 6:09 PM

Evan Fournier will not play against the Knicks on Saturday.

He is just being rested on a back-to-back set. Fournier looked great on Friday with 18 points and he should be ready for Monday. Moe Harkless will be in the rotation.
Apr 11 - 7:55 PM

Evan Fournier was hot against the Raptors on Friday with 18 points, six rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

He did most of his damage without the ball and his teammates found him along the 3-point line. Fournier probably won't be able to get more than 28 minutes most nights, so his upside will be capped. He's only worth a look in deep leagues.
Apr 10 - 9:48 PM

Evan Fournier (hip) will return from his five-week absence vs. the Bulls on Wednesday.

Magic coach James Borrego is thrilled to have Fournier available, saying, "He’s a rare combination in that he can get to the rim and he shoots threes ... We’ve missed that because he spaces the floor when Nik [Vucevic] has the ball and teams are afraid to leave Fournier." He's still sore and his minutes will undoubtedly be held in check, so there's no incentive to add him for immediate value.
Apr 8 - 5:16 PM

Evan Fournier (hip) will be a game-time decision vs. the Bulls on Wednesday according to head coach James Borrego.

This is awesome news for the Magic as Fournier has been out since Feb. 25. The Magic don't have anything to play for except ping pong balls at this point in the season, and Fournier will likely be eased back into the rotation after so much time off. We will let you know if he is cleared to play, but Fournier can remain on the wire in most leagues.
Apr 8 - 9:57 AM

The Magic are hopeful Evan Fournier (hip) can practice sometime this week.

Additionally, the team is hopeful that Fournier can play again before the season comes to a close. That being said, it doesn't seem like he's that close, and there is a difference between being hopeful and having an expectation that he will return. Fournier isn't on the fantasy radar for the remainder of the year.
Apr 6 - 11:17 AM

Evan Fournier (hip) did some on-court work on Friday.

He is still not close to a return and may not return this season. Fournier not being around may have helped Victor Oladipo take his game to a new level while Wiile Green is getting some minutes, too.
Apr 3 - 6:29 PM

Evan Fournier (hip) told reporters he's doing everything he can to return this season.

While Fournier wants to return, he has been out since Feb. 25 and the rebuilding Magic don't have much incentive to rush him back. He's a player to keep an eye on in deeper fantasy leagues for 2015-16, but the 22-year-old can safely be left on waivers for this season.
Mar 31 - 11:53 AM

Evan Fournier (hip) will not play Friday vs. the Pistons.

Fournier has been out since Feb. 25, and he has no business being owned in any leagues at this point in the fantasy season. Victor Oladipo will continue to get all the run he can handle with Fournier on the shelf.
Mar 27 - 5:38 PM

Evan Fournier (hip) will remain sidelined for Sunday's game vs. the Nuggets, and he is hoping to return to action in about 10 days.

"It's really the first time in my career where I've missed so many games," Fournier said Saturday. "It's very frustrating, but it's a part of what we do. We've got to take care of our body. Hopefully, I'm going to be able to play soon. Hopefully, 10 more days. I don't know. But, yeah, it's hard." Sunday will be his 13th straight game on the shelf, and the Magic will likely be cautious with him upon his return considering they are currently playing for draft picks. Elfrid Payton and Victor Oladipo will continue to have their hands full in the backcourt, while Fournier can be dropped in most leagues.
Mar 22 - 9:24 AM

Evan Fournier (hip) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. Portland.

Fournier has been sidelined since Feb. 25, and remains without a clear timetable to return. With the Orlando backcourt banged up, Victor Oladipo will continue to log heavy minutes for the Magic. Fournier belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Mar 20 - 10:10 AM

Evan Fournier (hip) will miss his 11th consecutive game on Wednesday.

The Magic return from their road trip to face the Blazers on Friday, so hopefully Fournier will at least resume practicing in the next few days. His absence shifts a few more minutes toward Victor Oladipo, with Ben Gordon, Luke Ridnour and Moe Harkless also picked up extra opportunities.
Mar 18 - 6:44 PM

Evan Fournier (hip) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. the Rockets.

Fournier is not even with the team on their current road trip, so he's looking doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks as well. With the fantasy playoffs in full swing, Fournier should not be owned in most leagues. Victor Oladipo will continue to log heavy minutes for Orlando with Moe Harkless seeing limited minutes off the bench.
