Dewayne Dedmon scored three points in seven minutes against the Cavs on Monday, adding no other stats.
He didn't play until the fourth quarter. Dedmon has started some second halves in place of Nikola Vucevic and even started while Vooch was out, but he's probably not moving into the starting lineup. Anything is possible with coach Scott Skiles, though. Nov 23 - 10:40 PM

Dewayne Dedmon took over as Orlando's starting center after halftime on Wednesday, posting four points with one turnover and no other stats in 10 minutes.

Nikola Vucevic shifted to the bench due to poor play but Dedmon's starting gig didn't yield any fantasy-worthy stats. Leave him where you found him -- on the fantasy scrap heap.
Nov 18 - 10:44 PM

Dewayne Dedmon moved back to the bench on Friday with four points, four rebounds and three blocks in 16 minutes.

That is actually a decent line for Dedmon, but his minutes will likely be in the lower teens with Nikola Vucevic's minutes trending up. Unless you really don't want to drop that Cool Runnings reference out of your team name in your deep league, you can probably cut Dedmon.
Nov 13 - 9:46 PM

Dewayne Dedmon will come off the bench against the Jazz on Friday.

His owners could see this coming from a mile away with Nikola Vucevic back in the lineup and his knee seems to be close to 100 percent again. Dedmon had a nice little run, but he is only worth owning in deeper leagues moving forward for anyone in need of boards and blocks.
Nov 13 - 12:04 PM

Dewayne Dedmon will start at center for Wednesday's matchup with the Lakers.

Elfrid Payton, Victor Oladipo, Tobias Harris and Evan Fournier will join Dedmon in the starting lineup for tonight's game. It's worth noting that Nikola Vucevic (knee) is on the active roster tonight, so while Dedmon is starting, there's a good chance Vucevic plays some minutes off the bench. Dedmon isn't a very attractive DFS option coming off a mediocre game and likely set to split minutes with Vuc.

Dewayne Dedmon made another start for Nikola Vucevic (knee) on Monday and had five points, nine boards, two steals and no blocks in the loss.

Vuc is day-to-day, but we still don't know when he'll play again, while Dedmon has been playing better than he did tonight in his stead. Dedmon is worth a look right now as long as Vucevic remains sidelined.
Nov 9 - 9:52 PM

Dewayne Dedmon was solid in his second start of the season on Saturday, scoring 12 points with nine rebounds, one steal and three blocks.

With Nikola Vucevic (knee) still feeling pain, there should be at least one or two more starts from Dedmon. His value is really just short-term, so he's not the greatest fantasy pickup unless you're streaming players.
Nov 8 - 12:29 AM

Dewayne Dedmon scored 10 points on 3-of-5 shooting with four rebounds, one assist and three blocks over 30 minutes in a start for injured Nikola Vucevic (knee) on Friday.

Dedmon fouled out but this is probably a high-water mark for him in terms of minutes, and Vucevic's knee injury is shrouded in a little bit of mystery right now. Orlando doesn't have a great track record of injury reports, so picking up Dedmon will be a little bit of a gamble any way you slice it. Owners should treat him as a low-end, short-term asset for however long Vooch is out.
Nov 6 - 10:06 PM

Dewayne Dedmon will start in place of Nikola Vucevic on Friday vs. the Raptors.

Dedmon scored four points with seven boards, one assist, two blocks and two steals in just 26 minutes against Houston on Wednesday, and it's unclear how much time Vucevic will miss. He's worth a speculative pickup in deeper leagues if you need some boards and blocks, but it's tough to project how many minutes he will receive with Scott Skiles at the helm.
Nov 6 - 12:07 PM

Dewayne Dedmon played 26 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday with four points, seven rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks.

Nikola Vucevic (knee) did not return tonight, but it sounds like he's going to be OK. For now, there's little reason to make a speculative add on Dedmon unless you're in a really deep league.
Nov 5 - 1:14 AM

Dewayne Dedmon returned from a personal absence and had eight points, 13 rebounds and three blocks in Tuesday's preseason overtime win over the Cavs.

He's an interesting player, but Orlando's front court is too deep for Dedmon to be worth a pick in most fantasy leagues.
Oct 13 - 10:36 PM

Dewayne Dedmon (personal) did not play on Sunday.

It's not clear how long Dedmon's absence may extend, but it's not expected to be anything more than a day-to-day situation.
Oct 12 - 10:09 AM

Dewayne Dedmon's $947k salary for the 2015-16 season is now fully guaranteed, as the Magic did not waive him by Aug. 1.

The deadline passed without incident, giving Dedmon some security as he battles for backup minutes in Orlando's frontcourt. He's not a fantasy asset with Nikola Vucevic, Channing Frye, Aaron Gordon, Andrew Nicholson and Jason Smith all crowding the PF/C spots.
Aug 2 - 3:13 PM

Dewayne Dedmon started at power forward and had six points, 11 rebounds and a block in 25 minutes on Wednesday.

Dedmon has been quiet lately, but if he continues to start for the Magic, he could be a sneaky source of boards for a desperate owner.
Apr 8 - 10:35 PM

Dewayne Dedmon said that his troublesome ankle felt "pretty good" after returning to action last week.

Dedmon's got a non-guaranteed salary for the 2015-16 season, but he's looking to prove that he should have a spot on the roster.
