Dewayne Dedmon returned to the bench on Wednesday with four points, four rebounds and two blocks in just 12 minutes of action vs. the Hornets.
It will be interesting to see how Orlando handles Dedmon this summer, as they could make him a restricted FA by extending a $1.2 million qualifying offer. He averaged 4.4 points, 3.9 rebounds and 0.8 blocks in 12.2 minutes this season and it's hard to imagine him gaining fantasy relevance on any team. Apr 13 - 11:13 PM

Dewayne Dedmon will return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

Nikola Vucevic (leg) is back in the starting five, which will render Dedmon a non-option in nearly all formats.
Apr 13 - 7:25 PM

Dewayne Dedmon scored 17 points in 19 minutes during his start against the Bucks on Monday, adding eight rebounds, three blocks and three steals.

That's a huge line in such little playing time. Presumably, Dedmon is going to get the start on Wednesday with Nikola Vucevic (leg) banged up right now. He'll be worth a look as a punt play with four solid outings in a row sans Vooch.
Apr 11 - 9:40 PM

According to the Orlando Sentinel, the Magic are likely to issue a qualifying offer to Dewayne Dedmon this summer.

That would make him a restricted free agent which would give the Magic the power to match any offer he receives this summer. Dedmon played well when Nikola Vucevic went down with a groin injury, but he only plays minutes in the teens when the Magic are at full strength. He likely won't be a factor in fantasy leagues next season if he remains in Orlando. He has season averages of 4.2 points, 3.9 boards and 0.7 blocks in 12.1 minutes.
Apr 8 - 10:38 AM

Dewayne Dedmon went scoreless in five minutes of action vs. the Pistons, and he was benched to begin the second half.

Nikola Vucevic took over as the starter in the third quarter, a move that was inevitable, and Dedmon's deep-league owners can officially move along. Even as a starter he was averaging just 7.0 points, 6.0 rebounds and 0.9 blocks per game.
Apr 6 - 10:22 PM

Dewayne Dedmon scored eight points with six rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes against the Pacers on Thursday.

He had one of the best weeks of his NBA career, but he will likely lose playing time now the Nikola Vucevic is back.
Mar 31 - 9:58 PM

Dewayne Dedmon hit 6-of-7 shots for 15 points, four rebounds and three blocks in Tuesday's easy win over the Nets.

That makes two straight games of solid production from Dedmon after not doing much prior. There's no reason for the Magic to bring Nikola Vucevic back at this point (although they still could), so Dedmon should officially be on the radar for deep-leaguers in need of a center.
Mar 29 - 10:59 PM

Dewayne Dedmon scored a career-high 18 points against the Bulls on Saturday with 13 rebounds and two assists in 22 minutes.

He set his career high in scoring and had his double-double in the first half. This is more about how awful the Bulls are on defense right now than Dedmon. Nikola Vucevic (groin) could practice on Monday and Dedmon is not a great per-minute guy, so leave him on the wire in most cases.
Mar 26 - 10:13 PM

Dewayne Dedmon replaced Jason Smith in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Kings, and scored nine points to go with seven boards, one block and one turnover in 25 minutes.

Smith outplayed Dedmon in this one, so he could head back to the bench as soon as Saturday's game against Portland. Dedmon is not a fantasy option in most leagues.
Mar 12 - 12:42 AM

Dewayne Dedmon will replace Jason Smith in the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Kings.

The Magic are going with a starting five of C.J. Watson, Victor Oladipo, Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon and Dedmon for Friday's game. Dedmon often struggles with foul trouble, so he's a bit of a risky play in DFS tonight despite the increased opportunity.

Magic recall F/C Dewayne Dedmon from the D-League.

Dedmon is a non-factor in any and every fantasy league.
Mar 7 - 9:23 AM

Dewayne Dedmon (illness) will return to the active roster for Sunday's game vs. the Pacers, sending Shabazz Napier to the inactive list.

With averages of just 3.0 points, 3.2 rebounds and 0.8 blocks per game on the season, Dedmon belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Napier is also a non-factor in fantasy hoops, particularly with Brandon Jennings now part of the rotation and C.J. Watson healthy.

Dewayne Dedmon (illness) is on Orlando's inactive list for Friday's game.

Dedmon has played 10+ minutes just four times since mid-November, so this should impact zero fantasy lineups.
Feb 19 - 5:43 PM

Dewayne Dedmon chipped in two points, nine rebounds, two assists and one block in 11 minutes vs. the Spurs on Wednesday.

Jason Smith was out with back spasms and Dedmon took advantage of an expanded role, giving Orlando a solid paint presence during the short stints Nikola Vucevic spent on the bench. Dedmon is barely worth a glance in the deepest leagues.
Feb 10 - 11:16 PM

Dewayne Dedmon (foot) returned on Friday with two points in two minutes.

He only played the last 1:47 in garbage time. Leave Dedmon on the wire.
