Evan Fournier scored 24 points with nine rebounds, eight assists, one steal, six turnovers and three 3-pointers against the 76ers on Thursday.
If the Magic do opt to stick with Elfrid Payton in the second unit, it should really help Fournier -- Payton probably won't stay on the bench for long. For what it's worth, he gets a hefty bump when he's not next to Payton and his assist percentage also goes up. Although, his net rating goes way down, so it's not a winning formula from a reality standpoint. Fournier looked like he was on his way to a monster night with 13 points in the first six minutes, but his fantasy owners will still take this. His value seems to be back to normal after dealing with a foot issue for a few weeks. Feb 9 - 10:11 PM

Evan Fournier scored 21 points on 7-of-16 shooting in Tuesday's loss to the Rockets.

The game was a blowout, but Fournier still logged 37 minutes and added three rebounds, three assists, one block and one triple. He also finished a perfect 6-of-6 from the line. He's still trying to find his rhythm since returning from his heel injury five games ago, averaging 14.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.2 triples on 37.3 percent shooting in that span. He has plenty of room to grow and gets a nice matchup on Thursday vs. Philly.
Feb 7 - 11:03 PM

Evan Fournier grabbed a career-high 10 rebounds against the Raptors on Friday to get to his first double-double of his career, adding 20 points, four assists and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He looked great and Fournier saying he wasn't feeling the effects of his foot injury earlier this week were for real. He was going off before his foot injury from a month ago, so he could go back to his early mid round value in standard leagues.
Feb 3 - 10:33 PM

Evan Fournier started and played 30 minutes during Wednesday's home loss, making 3-of-8 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs for 12 points, two 3-pointers, four assists and two steals.

It was Fournier's second game back from his foot injury, which he said responded well after his return on Monday. It looks like the injury is behind him, for good this time, and it shouldn't take long for him to once again emerge as the team's go-to scorer.
Feb 1 - 9:51 PM

Evan Fournier will start and C.J. Watson will move to the bench against the Pacers on Wednesday.

Fournier said his foot felt good after his return to the lineup on Monday, so this move to start him was expected. Fournier should be able to get more than his 23 minutes in that loss from Monday, which resulted in just nine points, one rebound and two assists. He should be put back into season-long lineups today, but DFS players may want to steer clear.
Feb 1 - 5:21 PM

Evan Fournier said he felt "pretty good" after the first five minutes or so in his return from an eight-game absence on Monday.

"In the second half, it was pretty good," Fournier said. "I thought I had my legs. I was feeling pretty well. The first five minutes was tough, though. When you don’t touch the ball [as you recover from an injury] and you don’t really get to run up and down the court, it’s tough. But after those five or six first minutes I thought it was pretty good." His conditioning still isn't quite where he'd like it to be, but that will come soon enough, as will his return to the starting five.
Feb 1 - 8:23 AM

Evan Fournier (foot) returned from an eight-game absence on Monday vs. the Wolves, but looked rusty with 11 points on 4-of-11 shooting.

He didn't exactly look comfortable out there and finished with a +/- rating of -18, the worst rating on the team. Fournier played just 23 minutes in the overtime loss and added one rebound, two assists and a triple. After the game, Fournier admitted that it was tough to get it going early as he was shaking off some rust, but the good news is that he said his foot is "pain-free." Expect a better performance on Wednesday vs. the Pacers.
Jan 30 - 11:27 PM

Evan Fournier (foot) will come off the bench Monday vs. Minnesota.

Fournier will be returning from an eight-game absence, but head coach Frank Vogel said he won't impose an official minutes limit on Fournier, although he will monitor his "wind." As a top-100 guy with mid-round upside, it makes sense to swoop him up in most leagues if he was dropped during the injury. Once Fournier is fully up to speed, C.J. Watson will return to the bench and there won't be as many minutes available for D.J. Augustin. Aaron Gordon's usage rate will also take a slight hit.
Jan 30 - 6:37 PM

Evan Founier (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raptors.

Frank Vogel did say that Fournier responded well to Saturday's practice, so perhaps he can return to action for Monday's game in Minnesota. With Fournier out today, C.J. Watson should earn another start, and there will be some increased opportunity on offense for Aaron Gordon.
Jan 29 - 4:42 PM

Evan Fournier (foot) said he was rusty at Saturday's practice.

"I was probably as fast as my grandma today," Fournier joked after returning to practice on Saturday. "I’m getting better, man, heading to the right direction. Obviously, [I had] a lack of rhythm today in practice, but that’s normal." He has missed seven games in a row and said he won't return until he's 100 percent, but he will test out his injury in the morning shootaround. "I definitely don’t want to do the same thing as I did two or three weeks ago, because if I’m going to come back, I’m going to come back for good and not only for just a week or two," Fournier added. If he's cleared for Sunday's game vs. the Raptors, C.J. Watson will lose most of his minutes.
Jan 29 - 10:16 AM

Evan Fournier (foot) practiced on Saturday and the Magic are hopeful he can play Sunday against the Raptors.

He went through some non-contact stuff at shootaround on Friday and was ruled out for the game in Boston in pre-game. If Fournier can return, that would bump C.J. Watson to the backup role while Jeff Green would lose some minutes, as well. Plus, Elfrid Payton also loses his increased play-making chances lately. Fournier may be eased back in, but he should be starting in standard leagues upon his return.
Jan 28 - 3:05 PM

Evan Fournier (foot) will not play Friday vs. the Celtics.

Fournier appears to be moving in the right direction (he participated in parts of practice this week), but Orlando wants to make sure he is as close to 100% as possible before they bring him back and allow him to play in actual games. C.J. Watson is expected to draw another start at shooting guard. D.J. Augustin (ankle) will return to the Magic lineup on Friday and will also likely see additional minutes with Fournier out.
Jan 27 - 6:10 PM

Evan Fournier (foot) is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Celtics.

Fournier did go through parts of practice, which is a step in the right direction. However, the Magic want his foot to be as close to 100% as possible before having him return to the lineup. If Fournier does not play, C.J. Watson is expected to draw another start. D.J. Augustin (ankle) is also listed as questionable for Friday.
Jan 27 - 12:23 PM

The Magic are not likely to get Evan Fournier (foot) back to play in Friday's game against the Celtics.

The team wants to make sure he's 100 percent healthy. Fournier played through his heel injury earlier this month and it caused some additional discomfort in another part of his foot. With him out, it'll be C.J. Watson likely starting. If D.J. Augustin (ankle) is a go, he should benefit, as well.
Jan 26 - 7:49 PM

Evan Fournier (foot) missed practice again on Thursday.

His timetable is still unclear, but the good news is that he was able to go through some individual work before practice. For now, it sounds like he's doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Celtics since the Magic will want to see him make it through a full practice before clearing him. Jeff Green is starting at SG now and is worth a look in the short term after scoring 13 points in 34 minutes vs. the Bulls on Tuesday. Mario Hezonja is still in the doghouse.
