Evan Fournier hit four 3-point shots in Friday's home loss to the Jazz, finishing with 21 points on 7-of-16 shooting, three rebounds and four assists in 39 minutes.
Fournier has turned things around over the past week and he's worth a look while he's hot. When the Magic are at full strength he could find himself getting added and dropped quite a bit as he goes up and down the ladder. Dec 19 - 11:31 PM

Date:

Evan Fournier is expected to go through a full practice on Tuesday.

Fournier took an elbow from Tyler Hansbrough during Monday's game that sent him to the locker room, but he was able to return, and it's not looking like he'll be forced to miss any time. We'll consider him probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Celtics, but owners will want to check back for an official update closer to tip-off.
Dec 16 - 3:09 PM

Evan Fournier left Monday's loss to the Raptors after taking an inadvertent elbow from Tyler Hansbrough, but returned to finish with 11 points, three boards, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

Fournier hit 4-of-10 shots and he's showing some signs of life since hitting rock bottom with owners over the past few weeks. Give him a look but giving him anything more than a late-round grade would be overly optimistic.

Evan Fournier caught a bad elbow from Tyler Hansbrough and left the game on Monday.

It was bad. Hansbrough came down with an elbow after going for a rebound. Fournier might be checked for a concussion and he's probably going to need stitches. If he's out, Elfrid Payton would pick up minutes. Stay tuned.
Dec 15 - 8:31 PM

Evan Fournier had an effective night against the Hawks on Saturday with 19 points, five rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

Elfrid Payton had a nice little showcase, but coach Jacque Vaughn is all about Fournier again -- rightfully so. He is not much of a stat-sheet filler, so he's more of a low-end player to own in standard leagues with a little extra bonus for his 1.8 treys.
Dec 13 - 10:05 PM

Evan Fournier scored 18 points with six rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers against the Hawks on Friday in 34 minutes.

His minutes dipped significantly on Wednesday with just 21 against the Wizards, but he was back up to his normal allotment tonight. The more the Magic lose games the more likely they'll be giving Elfrid Payton more minutes. Fournier is still worth owning in standard leagues, but he's probably going to have some ups and downs.
Dec 12 - 11:08 PM

Evan Fournier played just 21 minutes and had seven points and a 3-pointer in Wednesday's loss.

He's really cooled down and has only scored in double digits in one of his last four games. Meanwhile, Elfrid Payton is starting to play better off the bench and had 12 points, six rebounds and four assists in 29 minutes off the bench tonight. It may be time to drop Fournier and pick up Payton in your league.
Dec 10 - 9:51 PM

Evan Fournier bounced back in Saturday's win over the Kings, finishing with 15 points on 7-of-16 shooting to go with six rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.

He actually increased his streak of at least one 3-pointer per game to 28, which is the longest active streak in the NBA. Impressive as that may be, the return of Victor Oladipo has really dampened his value and he will have to string a few more games like this together before he can be considered a must-own player in standard leagues.
Dec 7 - 12:31 AM

Evan Fournier had yet another slow night on Friday, hitting just 2-of-7 shots for eight points, five rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

Fournier's role has steadily decreased since Victor Oladipo (20 points, 9-of-12 FGs, six assists) has gotten on his feet. While there's upside because of the minutes he's getting, his fantasy game has holes in it and he's no longer a must-own player in 12-team standard formats.
Dec 6 - 2:41 AM

Evan Fournier hit just 4-of-11 shots and a 3-pointer for nine points and two assists on Wednesday.

He's really cooled off as of late, scoring 10 or fewer points in four of his last five games. He's averaging 9.8 points and 1.4 3-pointers over that stretch, but is still getting nearly 32 minutes per night. Let's call this a slump and hope he breaks out of it on Friday at Utah. If the minutes weren't so strong we'd be more down on him, but the opportunity is still there.
Dec 4 - 2:06 AM

Evan Fournier hit just 2-of-10 shots (including a three) for five points, one rebounds, two assists and a steal over 33 minutes in Friday's loss.

Fournier has been struggling and it could possibly be linked to a quad injury or the heel injury he had before that, but injury reporting isn't exactly strong in Orlando so we probably won't know until it's too late. He's playing at a top 150-175 level this season and lately he's been as bad as he can be in his current role, so don't be surprised if he bounces back into some safer territory.
Nov 29 - 3:04 AM

Evan Fournier (bruised quad) started Wednesday's home loss, making 4-of-9 FGs (one 3-pointer) to finish with 10 points, two rebounds and one assist.

Fournier played a team-high 31 minutes and his role appears bullet-proof as long as Elfrid Payton continues to come off the bench, freeing Fournier to start alongside Victor Oladipo. Fantasy owners should simply be aware that he's not contributing much beyond points (16.1), 3-pointers (1.9) and some assists (2.4).
Nov 26 - 10:06 PM

Evan Fournier (quad) will start against the Warriors on Wednesday.

He went through his pre-game routine and it doesn't sound like he'll be limited. Fournier has been a very valuable piece for the Magic and he is going to see plenty of run tonight. Fantasy owners can plan on using him like they were before his injury.
Nov 26 - 5:15 PM

Evan Fournier will be a game-time call on Wednesday due to a quad injury.

He finally cooled off on Monday and suffered the injury in that game. If he can't go, it should mean more goodies for Victor Oladipo, who played 36 minutes on Monday and had his best game of the season.
Nov 26 - 10:59 AM

Evan Fournier (right quad contusion) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Warriors.

If Fournier is unable to go, Victor Oladipo would be in line for a healthy heaping of minutes, with Willie Green, Ben Gordon, and Elfrid Payton also seeing some extended run. Stay tuned.
