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. Apr 16 - 11:51 AM

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.

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.

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.
Apr 6 - 5:20 PM

Evan Fournier had 21 points and four 3-pointers in Tuesday's blowout 122-102 loss to the Cavs, but didn't have a rebound and added just one assist and two steals.

Fournier has been playing well and easily led the Magic in this one, but the team has nothing left to play for and owners have to worry about some days of rest coming up for regular starters like Fournier. He came through with the points again tonight, but the peripherals weren't there.
Apr 4 - 9:52 PM

Evan Fournier led the Magic with 24 points during Wednesday's home loss, adding six rebounds, five assists and one steal in 41 minutes.

Fournier was tolerably efficient, hitting 9-of-22 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs with a 3-of-8 mark from downtown. He did commit five turnovers, but this is basically what owners have come to expect -- solid scoring, 3-pointers and FT percentages, with limited supporting stats.
Mar 29 - 10:44 PM

Evan Fournier scored 20 points with one rebound, one assist, two steals and two triples vs. the Raptors on Monday.

The Magic are all but out of the playoff hunt, but with Mario Hezonja playing more small-ball four, hopefully that means Fournier's workload is safe. The Magic play three more times this week and Fournier has scored 20+ points six times in March, so keep rolling him out there as long as he's healthy. He finished 7-of-12 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line in 30 minutes.
Mar 27 - 10:27 PM

Evan Fournier scored 25 points with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers against the Suns on Friday.

The Phoenix bump helps out another underwhelming performer here. While Fournier has only cleared the 15-point plateau once in his previous four, he does have solid March averages of 17.6 points, 2.8 boards, 2.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 2.7 treys in his previous games this month. He should be a mid-round guy going forward, assuming the Magic don't shut him down.
Mar 18 - 2:06 AM

Evan Fournier hit 8-of-18 from the floor, including four 3-pointers, to finish with 21 points in Monday's loss against the Kings.

Fournier is working on a string of six straight games with two or more 3-pointers, and he has at least one trey in 12 consecutive contests dating back to Feb. 11. The Frenchman has been tremendously effective in the month of March, averaging 18.3 points. As long as the Magic continue to battle and not go into tank mode, Fournier will see plenty of minutes and fantasy production.
Mar 14 - 1:20 AM

Evan Fournier scored 15 points on 4-of-10 shooting on Saturday vs. the Cavaliers.

While his minutes are safe going forward, Fournier is going to lose some touches with Nikola Vucevic (Achilles) back in the lineup -- Fournier's usage rate drops from 26.0 to 21.5 when Vooch is on the court. He finished 5-of-6 from the line and added two assists, one rebound, two steals and two triples in 32 minutes, but hopefully he can stay healthy with the Magic in tank mode.
