Evan Fournier cooled off on Wednesday with 13 points on 5-of-15 shooting, adding two steals, one rebound and one assist in 30 minutes.
Fournier admitted that the Hornets have "kicked [Orlando's] ass the last few years," and his team wanted payback, but they fell short in a 104-102 home loss tonight. Fournier was cruising over his past five games with 19.2 points on 52.1% shooting, so we'll give him a pass for tonight's relative dud. Feb 14 - 10:25 PM

Evan Fournier ended up with 20 points across 29 minutes in Saturday's home loss against the Bucks.

Fournier hit 8-of-15 from the field, including 2-of-5 from behind the 3-point line, while going 2-of-2 from the free-throw stripe. He also chipped in with a pair of rebounds, an assist and a steal with three turnovers. Fournier appears to be relieved he wasn't dealt at the trade deadline, averaging 20.3 PPG over his past three outings. The Frenchman also has scored in double digits in a team-high 45 games this season. He also has at least one 3-pointer in each of his past 14 outings dating back to Jan. 9.
Feb 10 - 9:59 PM

Evan Fournier scored 22 points with three rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Hawks on Thursday.

He wasn't traded and he will continue to get plenty of shots on a team lacking offensive depth. Earlier today, Fournier had a good comment about the upcoming trade deadline. "We have a game tonight, so it's a regular day. The trade deadline is during the nap. So I'm going to take my nap, and when I wake up, I wake up. We'll see what happens," he said. His fantasy owners should be happy he's still around.
Feb 8 - 10:03 PM

Evan Fournier scored 19 points with six rebounds, three assists, one steal and one triple in 37 minutes.

He came into tonight's game ranking 9th in the NBA in free throw percentage at 89.8%, but hit just 4-of-9 from there Tuesday. He did hit 7-of-13 shots from the field and played 37 minutes after playing less than 30 minutes in his previous four games. Fournier's name has been in the rumor mill this season and Chris Mannix of Yahoo Sports said the Magic are "open for business," so it's possible this was his last game in a Magic uniform.
Feb 6 - 10:57 PM

Evan Fournier finished Saturday's loss 115-98 blowout loss to the Wizards with more shot attempts (12) than points (11).

Fournier added just one assist, one steal, and one 3-pointer, but at least he didn't turn the ball over. This was a forgettable game for the entire Orlando starting five, and hopefully, they'll be better in their next one.
Feb 3 - 10:04 PM

Evan Fournier (ankle) will be in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rockets.

Fournier tweaked his ankle on Saturday, but played through it and got in a full practice on Monday, so he shouldn't have any sort of restrictions tonight. With Aaron Gordon (hip) out, Fournier should have plenty of shots coming his way. He'll be joined in the starting unit by Elfrid Payton, Mario Hezonja, Jonathon Simmons and Bismack Biyombo.
Jan 30 - 6:39 PM

Evan Fournier (ankle) practiced in full on Monday.

He rolled his ankle during Saturday's game, but he was able to close the game and it sounds like he'll be ready to go on Tuesday vs. the Rockets. He could have more shots coming his way if Aaron Gordon (hip) can't go.
Jan 29 - 1:52 PM

Evan Fournier scored 21 points with two rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday.

He did tweak his right ankle during this game as he stepped on Victor Oladipo's foot. After stretching his foot, Fournier looked fine the rest of the way and closed out. Considering his ankle problems in the past, his owners may want to make sure he's good for Tuesday in Houston. We'd expect him to play.
Jan 27 - 9:44 PM

Evan Fournier hit 7-of-17 shots and 2-of-10 3-pointers for 22 points, two rebounds and four assists in 38 minutes of Tuesday's loss to the Kings.

Fournier's getting hot again and this line would have looked a lot better if more of his threes were falling. He's scored between 17 and 32 points in each of his last four games and has played like a sixth-round fantasy player over the past 10 days.
Jan 23 - 9:35 PM

Evan Fournier helped Orlando earn their first win in Boston since 2011 on Sunday, tallying 19 points, three triples, three boards, three dimes, one steal, one block and one turnover in 35 minutes.

Fournier was hot from start to finish in this one, and he helped the Magic go on a huge run during the third quarter to give Orlando a 19-point edge heading into the fourth. He's reportedly being pursued on the trade market by some playoff contenders, and he could certainly help a postseason team, but his fantasy value would be best served in Orlando. For what it's worth, he has said he's not asking for a trade.
Jan 21 - 4:07 PM

Evan Fournier said he has not asked the Magic for a trade.

There really haven't been many rumors on Fournier, but the Magic continue to slide in the standings. "I’m not going to think about what’s going to happen or where I would enjoy playing or something, because it’s all speculation," Fournier said. His fantasy owners will certainly want him to stay with the Magic, assuming there's no cautious shutdown.
Jan 17 - 5:30 PM

Evan Fournier went off for a career-high 32 points in Tuesday's win over the Wolves, hitting 12-of-22 shots and 2-of-2 free throws.

He also matched a career-high with six triples, adding three assists and two rebounds in 35 minutes. Fournier is off to a slow start in January with averages of 14.0 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.3 triples prior to tonight, so hopefully this performance will get him going. He gets a matchup with the Cavaliers on Thursday, a team that has allowed 118+ points in four out of their last five games.
Jan 16 - 9:40 PM

Evan Fournier stepped up with a team-high 21 points, four rebounds, three assists, a steal and a blocked shot across 27 minutes in Wednesday's 110-103 loss at Milwaukee.

Fournier was a very efficient 8-of-14 from the floor while adding 2-of-5 from behind the 3-point line and a perfect 3-of-3 from the charity stripe. He also turned it over just three times. The Frenchman has eight straight games with 10 or more points, just one short of a season best streak. He'll shoot for his ninth straight double-digit scoring night on Friday in Washington.
Jan 10 - 10:32 PM

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Pistons "pursued" an Evan Fournier deal.

It's not clear when they tried to acquire him or if they still are, but it sounds like the Pistons wanted to include Reggie Jackson (ankle) in any deal -- his injury could be a reason why the talks stalled. The Pistons could certainly use an upgrade on the wings and Fournier fits the bill as a scorer and playmaker, and he should be available with the Magic looking at another lost season. He'll be a name to watch as we approach the Feb. 8 deadline, but his value would likely take a hit if he joins a playoff-bound team.

Evan Fournier hit just 4-of-15 shots for 13 points in Monday's loss to the Nets.

It just wasn't his night. Fournier couldn't stay out of foul trouble with five total, and his game-tying 3-point attempt was blocked with seven seconds left on the clock. He failed to grab a single rebound in 33 minutes, dishing out just one assist with a steal and a block. Fournier had a 23-point game on Saturday and his right ankle and foot issues are behind him, so expect a bounce-back performance on Wednesday in Houston in what should be a shootout.
