Evan Fournier (sore hip) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Celtics.
Fournier missed 18 games in a row during the 2014-15 season due to a hip injury, so this is a little worrying. There's still no word on the severity of the issue, but he suffered the injury on Friday vs. the Bucks and wasn't able to practice on Saturday. If Fournier is unable to play, it's possible that Victor Oladipo could step back into the starting lineup. We'll have an update after their shootaround on Sunday. Nov 28 - 1:49 PM

Evan Fournier shot just 1-of-9 from the field vs. New York, scoring three points with two rebounds and zero assists, steals or blocks in 21 minutes.

This makes two straight duds in a row for Fournier, but he's been one of Scott Skiles' favorites and it's hard to imagine him staying in the doghouse for long. His owners should keep the faith and deploy him as usual vs. the Bucks on Friday.
Nov 25 - 10:07 PM

Evan Fournier played just 23 minutes against the Cavs on Monday with 13 points, one rebound, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers.

His shooting has been vital for the offensive spacing, so he's probably the safest bet to remain in the starting lineup. Fournier played his fewest minutes of the season tonight as coach Scott Skiles's wrath showed no bounds -- it almost never does. He is trending down, so the sell-high window is starting to close.

Evan Fournier admitted that he did not expect to reach a contract extension with the Magic.

The report states Fournier rejected a four-year, $32M offer in order to be on himself. "To be honest, I did not even expect to be extended," Fournier said. "I have confidence in myself and the season that I’ll have. The contract will take care of itself." Fournier worked out this offseason using track-and-field exercises to improve his stamina, and thus far it has clearly paid off. Although he is having a breakout season, Fournier still wants to improve. "I really have to rebound the ball better," Fournier said. "I’m 6-foot-7, a pretty big guard, so I should average at least six rebounds." With averages of 19.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.5 steals and 2.5 triples on 45.4 percent shooting, those fortunate enough to have Fournier would be thrilled if he could add any more. The breakout is real, and it's spectacular.

Evan Fournier scored 17 points against the Kings on Saturday with four rebounds, three assists, three steals and three 3-pointers.

He did suffer a minor right ankle tweak and had the trainers look at him on the bench. Fournier was fine and didn't need to miss any game action -- he actually made two 3-pointers o his next two possessions after the injury. Fournier is probably the only player who is safe from the wrath of The Scott Skiles.
Nov 21 - 7:49 PM

Evan Fournier (illness) sank a game-winning 3-pointer in overtime on Wednesday, finishing with a team-high 26 points, four rebounds, three assists and three steals.

He logged 43 minutes, compared to his gaudy season average of 38.0, so clearly the illness wasn't a concern for Fournier or coach Scott Skiles. He's been Orlando's most consistent player at both ends of the court this season, and is one of the most pleasant fantasy surprises with top-40 value through 12 games.
Nov 18 - 10:47 PM

Evan Fournier (illness) is in the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Wolves.

He said he'll play earlier today and his illness won't keep him from the starting lineup. He's starting to trend down after a torrid start, but Fournier is second in minutes and leads the NBA in distance traveled on the year. He should be starting in all leagues tonight.
Nov 18 - 5:29 PM

Evan Fournier (illness) said that he will play in Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves.

He was never really in any danger of sitting this one out, so go ahead and get him active.
Nov 18 - 12:11 PM

Evan Fournier (fever) is probable to play Wednesday against Minnesota.

Fournier didn't practice on Monday due to the illness, but it doesn't look like he's in any jeopardy of missing Wednesday's contest. The fourth-year Frenchman is currently hitting career-highs across the board with averages of 18.8 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 2.2 three-pointers per game, so make sure you have him active.
Nov 18 - 12:03 PM

Evan Fournier (fever) did not practice on Monday.

The Magic don't play again until Wednesday vs. Minnesota, so we're not too worried about Fournier's availability. Averaging 18.8 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 2.2 triples in a ridiculous 38 minutes per game, Fournier is well on his way to crushing his ADP.
Nov 16 - 1:31 PM

Evan Fournier scored 21 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes on Friday.

It's his ninth-consecutive game with at least 11 points and he's shockingly become one of the most consistent scorers in the NBA with his 20 points-per-game average in November. Additionally, no player has run more miles on a basketball court this season. Fournier won't be this good, but he's obviously a must-own player.
Nov 13 - 9:55 PM

Evan Fournier played another 40 minutes on Monday and had 21 points, two boards, one assist, two steals and four 3-pointers on 7-of-13 shooting in a loss to the Pacers.

He cooled off on Friday, giving his new owners pause, but scored 17 with three 3-pointers on Saturday before blowing up again on Monday. He has been one of the hottest waiver-wire pickups of the young season, and tonight's game is a good example of why.
Nov 9 - 9:48 PM

Evan Fournier scored 17 points in 40 minutes against the 76ers on Saturday with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

This is becoming old hat here with Fournier putting five good lines in his last six. In that span, he's averaged 21.3 points, 4.2 boards, 2.7 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.5 treys. Fournier won't be this good, but his coach loves his ability to stretch the floor and his size at 6'7". He's a must-own player.
Nov 8 - 12:45 AM

Evan Fournier cooled off in the Magic's 92-87 win over the Raptors on Friday, scoring a light 11 points with one rebound, one assist and one trey over 28 minutes of action.

Fournier hit 3-of-11 shots from the field and 4-of-4 freebies from the line. He was due for an off-night and the key for his long-term value is going to be tied to his defense, so that's where owners' attention should be focused over the next week. Averaging 19.0 points, 2.0 treys, 4.3 boards, 2.5 assists and 1.2 steals thus far, he is still a must-own player but owners need to stay on their toes.
Nov 6 - 10:14 PM

Evan Fournier stayed hot against the Rockets on Wednesday, scoring 29 points with six rebounds, four assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 46 minutes.

He just played 43 minutes on Tuesday and appears to be the second-safest player in coach Scott Skiles' rotation right now. Fournier is getting minutes at both wings spots and has become the primary floor spacer. There's no need to Google anything about him, just pick him up in all leagues.
