Evan Fournier (sore right hip) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

With Fournier and Aaron Gordon (ankle) unavailable, Victor Oladipo and Tobias Harris are going to be forced into heavy minutes, and both figure to be decent plug-and-play options in daily leagues.

Evan Fournier came off the bench during Sunday's five-point win vs. the 76ers, finishing scoreless with three assists in 14 minutes.

He was coming off a nice 16-point effort as a starter on Friday and plenty of owners got burned tonight, as Fournier pulled the short straw in interim coach James Borrego's rotations. Fournier should be benched until Orlando's backcourt settles into a reliable pattern, at least while Tobias Harris (knee) is healthy.
Feb 22 - 9:03 PM

Evan Fournier hit 7-of-16 shots (including two threes) for 16 points, six rebounds and three assists in 39 minutes on Friday.

As long as Tobias Harris (knee) is out, there might be enough breathing room for Fournier to be productive like this. Once Harris returns, all bets are off.
Feb 21 - 12:36 AM

Evan Fournier will start against the Pelicans on Friday.

His numbers as the starting small forward are not good this season, averaging 8.7 points, 3.7 boards, 4.3 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.3 treys on 36.7 percent from the field. Still, he's worth a look as a punt play in DFS.
Feb 20 - 5:23 PM

Evan Fournier didn't have a successful run in the starting lineup on Wednesday with five points, three rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

He had a really bad game tonight and has some bad luck as the starting small forward, averaging 10.5 points, 4.0 boards, 6.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.5 triples on 37.5 percent from the field in his previous two. Tobias Harris (knee) should be back after the break, so Fournier will lose fantasy value.
Feb 11 - 10:25 PM

Evan Fournier will start against the Knicks on Wednesday in place of Tobias Harris (knee).

He'll join Elfrid Payton, Victor Oladipo, Channing Frye and Nikola Vucevic in the first unit. Fournier has stepped up almost regardless of which starter misses time, so he should have no problem getting over 30 minutes tonight. While his starts at forward are not nearly as great as he's starts at shooting guard, he's a decent plug-and-play option in all leagues.
Feb 11 - 5:19 PM

Evan Fournier played 33 minutes against the Wizards on Monday with 18 points, two rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers.

He picked up most of Tobias Harris' minutes tonight. Fournier is basically the go-to guy anytime a starter misses time. He's stepped up when Victor Oladipo and Nikola Vucevic have missed time, too. Still, Tobias won't be out long, so he's only a short-term add.
Feb 9 - 9:48 PM

Evan Fournier scored 14 points off Orlando's bench on Sunday, hitting 5-of-7 shots with one 3-pointer, three rebounds, three assists and one steal vs. Chicago.

Fournier's line was even more impressive since it came in just 18 minutes of action. The Bulls' defense is much more lenient than it's been in years past, and fantasy owners should shy away from Fournier unless his playing time unexpectedly leaps under interim coach James Borrego.
Feb 8 - 11:40 PM

Evan Fournier started again on Wednesday and had 10 points, two rebounds, six assists, two steals and two 3-pointers on 4-of-9 shooting.

Aaron Gordon was out with a sore foot, allowing Fournier to get another start. As long as Fournier's starting for the Magic, he's worth a look in fantasy. But if he's coming off the bench, he's not trustworthy enough to be in your lineup.
Feb 5 - 1:18 AM

Evan Fournier drew the start in place of Victor Oladipo (Achilles) on Saturday, scoring 15 points with three rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

Oladipo's injury doesn't sound serious, but there's a chance he misses additional time. Fournier will be worth starting in standard leagues while VO is out, but fantasy owners shouldn't add him as anything more than a stop-gap asset.
Jan 31 - 10:18 PM

Evan Fournier will start in place of Victor Oladipo (Achilles) against the Mavs on Saturday.

In his 27 starts at guard, Fournier averaged 14.7 points, 2.7 boards, 2.3 assists and 1.7 triples. Fantasy owners can give him a look tonight as a spot-start guy.
Jan 31 - 5:55 PM

Evan Fournier returned from a knee injury and had nine points and three steals in 13 minutes on Wednesday.

Fournier was hot earlier in the season, but now that Vic Oladipo and Elfrid Payton are rolling, he doesn't figure to offer much value going forward, if any.
Jan 14 - 10:14 PM

Evan Fournier (knee) has been cleared to play vs. the Rockets on Wednesday, though he said he isn't yet 100 percent healthy.

He missed two games with a sprained knee and his return is welcome news for Orlando with Tobias Harris (ankle) slated to sit out again. Fournier's return may take a couple minutes away from Victor Oladipo, and it makes Devyn Marble a considerably riskier play in daily formats.
Jan 14 - 5:20 PM

Evan Fournier (knee) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

Coach Jacque Vaughn will evaluate Fournier at shootaround and will see how he feels prior to tip-off before making a decision. Should Fournier miss this one, Victor Oladipo will play all the minutes he can handle while Devyn Marble will benefit as well.
