Evan Fournier (hip) told reporters he's doing everything he can to return this season.
While Fournier wants to return, he has been out since Feb. 25 and the rebuilding Magic don't have much incentive to rush him back. He's a player to keep an eye on in deeper fantasy leagues for 2015-16, but the 22-year-old can safely be left on waivers for this season. Mar 31 - 11:53 AM

Date:

Evan Fournier (hip) will not play Friday vs. the Pistons.

Fournier has been out since Feb. 25, and he has no business being owned in any leagues at this point in the fantasy season. Victor Oladipo will continue to get all the run he can handle with Fournier on the shelf.
Mar 27 - 5:38 PM

Evan Fournier (hip) will remain sidelined for Sunday's game vs. the Nuggets, and he is hoping to return to action in about 10 days.

"It's really the first time in my career where I've missed so many games," Fournier said Saturday. "It's very frustrating, but it's a part of what we do. We've got to take care of our body. Hopefully, I'm going to be able to play soon. Hopefully, 10 more days. I don't know. But, yeah, it's hard." Sunday will be his 13th straight game on the shelf, and the Magic will likely be cautious with him upon his return considering they are currently playing for draft picks. Elfrid Payton and Victor Oladipo will continue to have their hands full in the backcourt, while Fournier can be dropped in most leagues.
Mar 22 - 9:24 AM

Evan Fournier (hip) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. Portland.

Fournier has been sidelined since Feb. 25, and remains without a clear timetable to return. With the Orlando backcourt banged up, Victor Oladipo will continue to log heavy minutes for the Magic. Fournier belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Mar 20 - 10:10 AM

Evan Fournier (hip) will miss his 11th consecutive game on Wednesday.

The Magic return from their road trip to face the Blazers on Friday, so hopefully Fournier will at least resume practicing in the next few days. His absence shifts a few more minutes toward Victor Oladipo, with Ben Gordon, Luke Ridnour and Moe Harkless also picked up extra opportunities.
Mar 18 - 6:44 PM

Evan Fournier (hip) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. the Rockets.

Fournier is not even with the team on their current road trip, so he's looking doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks as well. With the fantasy playoffs in full swing, Fournier should not be owned in most leagues. Victor Oladipo will continue to log heavy minutes for Orlando with Moe Harkless seeing limited minutes off the bench.
Mar 17 - 12:08 PM

Evan Fournier (hip) will not play on Sunday vs. the Cavaliers according to head coach James Borrego

This will be his ninth consecutive game on the sidelines, and there is still no known timetable for his return. With Willie Green (back) also carrying an injury, Elfrid Payton and Victor Oladipo will have to continue logging big minutes in the backcourt. Fournier is safe to drop in most leagues.

Evan Fournier (hip) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Celtics.

This marks Fournier's eighth consecutive game on the sidelines, and he remains without an official timetable to return. With Fournier unavailable, Victor Oladipo will again be forced to log heavy minutes, while Ben Gordon will see limited minutes off the bench.
Mar 13 - 11:08 AM

Evan Fournier (hip) is out for Wednesday's game vs. the Bucks, while Willie Green (back spasms) is considered questionable.

This will be Fournier's seventh straight game on the shelf and there is still no known timetable for his return. It's safe to drop Fournier in almost all leagues at the moment, and with Willie Green considered questionable for Wednesday, Elfrid Payton and Victor Oladipo will have their hands full vs. the Bucks.
Mar 11 - 11:08 AM

Evan Fournier (hip) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. the Pacers.

This will be Fournier's sixth consecutive game on the sidelines, and he remains without an official return date. Victor Oladipo and Tobias Harris will continue to log heavy minutes in Fournier's absence, with Willie Green seeing some increased floor time.
Mar 10 - 5:53 PM

Evan Fournier (hip), Luke Ridnour (hamstring) and Willie Green (Achilles) have all been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Celtics.

The Magic are down to just 10 healthy bodies in the rotation, and it'll again be Victor Oladipo and Elfrid Payton logging heavy minutes for the Magic, with Ben Gordon seeing extended minutes off the bench. Oladipo has been scorching, dropping 32, and 38 points in his previous two outings. Look for Oladipo to again be Orlando's go-to guy on offense with Nikola Vucevic (ankle) also unavailable for this one.

Evan Fournier (hip) and Luke Ridnour (hamstring) will not play against the Kings on Friday.

This will be Fournier's fourth game out of the lineup. With Willie Green also out tonight, the Magic will likely have to give more minutes to Aaron Gordon and maybe even Moe Harkless. Tobias Harris and Victor Oladipo will also be around 40 minutes tonight. Fournier can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Mar 6 - 5:24 PM

Magic head coach James Borrego said he was unsure if Evan Fournier (hip) and Luke Ridnour (hamstring) will be available for Friday's game vs. the Kings.

If Fournier is unable to go it will be his fourth straight game on the sidelines, and with Luke Ridnour (hamstring) also looking doubtful, Victor Oladipo and Tobias Harris will again be asked to log heavy minutes. Stay tuned.

Evan Fournier (hip) and Luke Ridnour (hamstring) will not play against the Suns on Wednesday.

Fournier will miss his third game in a row and he is dealing with a day-to-day issue. Aaron Gordon is back and he should get some minutes for the Magic. Fournier is not worth owning in most leagues while Gordon is not worth owning either.
Mar 4 - 5:19 PM

Evan Fournier (hip) was limited at practice on Tuesday, and he remains questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Suns.

Fournier has missed the last two games and recently said that his hip is still giving him problems, so he is probably closer to doubtful for Wednesday. Fournier has averages of 11.9 points and 1.4 3-pointers this season, so his value is currently limited to deeper leagues at the moment. If Fournier remains sidelined, veteran Willie Green will continue to see an uptick in minutes off the bench.
