Magic's Jeff Green: Sees big minutes in starting role Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green started at power forward and produced 11 points (4-11 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 35 minutes in a 107-79 loss to the Spurs on Wednesday.

The Magic had a vacancy in the starting lineup after Serge Ibaka was traded to the Raptors on Thursday, and with new acquisition Terrence Ross unavailable, Green was deemed the top candidate to fill the spot. Though Green was one of only three Magic players to reach double figures in scoring, that's almost entirely due to the extensive minutes he played in what was an otherwise unimpressive night. In addition to the inefficient shooting, Green was a liability on the defensive end, as opposing power forward LaMarcus Aldridge exposed him early on in the matchup before coach Frank Vogel eventually switched center Nikola Vucevic over to Aldridge. The 21-37 Magic will likely head into the second half of the season looking to evaluate some of their younger options, and with that in mind, it wouldn't be surprising if Vogel shifted Aaron Gordon over to power forward and used either Ross or second-year wing Mario Hezonja as their starting small forward while moving Green back to the bench.

Magic's D.J. Augustin: Puts up six points off bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Augustin provided six points (2-4 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-3 FT), one rebound and one assist across 20 minutes in a 107-79 loss to the Spurs on Wednesday.

Coach Frank Vogel's decision to use C.J. Watson as his starting point guard and Elfrid Payton as Watson's main backup the last four games has resulted in Augustin seeing more time off the ball lately. It hasn't been beneficial to Augustin's production, with the veteran averaging just 5.3 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.0 three-pointers in 21.3 minutes per contest. Even if Vogel scraps the experiment and brings Payton or Augustin back into the starting five, the latter still profiles as a low-upside fantasy option in most deep leagues since he's rarely seen high usage in any contest. He's produced six or more assists in just six games and double-digit shot attempts in 10 games all season.

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Provides 16 points, 10 boards Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vucevic supplied 16 points (7-16 FG, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds and one block across 28 minutes in a 107-79 loss to the Spurs on Wednesday.

Playing their first game without Serge Ibaka, who was traded away to the Raptors on Tuesday, Vucevic was the unquestioned alpha dog on the offensive end, leading the team in both scoring and shot attempts. Despite the quality stat line, Vucevic's defensive deficiencies were apparent when he was matching up with the Spurs' LaMarcus Aldridge at one point in the contest, as Aldridge easily outmaneuvered the slow-footed Vucevic. Now 21-37 on the season, the Magic could look to sell off some of their other pieces as the Feb. 23 trade deadline approaches, but it's unclear if many teams have overwhelming interest in Vucevic with the trade market flooded with available centers. Assuming Vucevic remains in Orlando after the deadline, he should be a steady source of double-doubles in the final month and a half of the season.

Magic's Damjan Rudez: Logs garbage time in Wednesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudez played four minutes in Wednesday's 107-79 loss to the Spurs, recording one foul and no other statistics.

Rudez saw some run in garbage time at the end of the blowout, and those are typically the only scenarios in which coach Frank Vogel is willing to call the big man's number off the bench. The 30-year-old has appeared in only four of eight games in February, seeing no more than 12 minutes in any contest.

Magic's C.J. Watson: Leaves Wednesday's game with sore Achilles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watson is dealing with a sore right Achilles and won't return to Wednesday's game against the Spurs.

Watson drew his fourth straight start Wednesday, but a sore Achilles will limit him to just 12 minutes of action, which he finished with seven points (3-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt), two steals and a turnover. It doesn't sound like a serious issue, but he'll likely have more tests on it following the game. Wednesday marks the Magic's last game before the All-Star break, which means Watson should have about a week off for recovery before a matchup with the Trail Blazers on Feb. 23.
