  • Magic's Moritz Wagner: Leads team with 23 points

    Wagner amassed 23 points (9-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds, four assists and one steal across 25 minutes during Sunday's 114-95 win over the Bulls.

    The Wagner brothers led the Magic to this decisive victory. Playing time is the primary benchmark for Wagner, as he usually puts up a respectable number when given 20 or more minutes, but his scoreless night in five minutes against the Lakers on Friday night was an excellent example of his variance as a fantasy option.

  • Magic's Moritz Wagner: Another strong performance

    Wagner produced 14 points (5-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and two blocks across 15 minutes during Monday's 98-88 loss to Portland.

    After scoring in double digits just four times over his first 25 games, Wagner has now scored at least 14 points in five of his last 10 outings. He played a key role in helping Orlando snap its 10-game losing streak earlier this week. Wagner has connected on multiple treys in three straight contests.

  • Magic's Moritz Wagner: Ties for team lead in scoring

    Wagner produced 16 points (5-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 20 minutes during Saturday's 108-92 loss to Dallas.

    Wagner followed his season-best 26-point performance Friday with another strong scoring effort in Saturday's loss. The 24-year-old missed only one of his six field-goal attempts and tied for the team lead with a pair of steals. Wagner has seen inconsistent playing time and consequently hasn't produced much this season, but his minutes could be on the rise given his strong performances in each of his past two contests.

  • Magic's Moritz Wagner: Pedestrian performance in return

    Wagner accumulated eight points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one assist, one block and one steal in 12 minutes during Saturday's 97-92 loss to Detroit.

    Wagner returned from a two-game absence due to a non-COVID illness and scored eight points in 12 minutes. The fourth-year pro has only played six games since Dec. 6, but he's averaging 10.3 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 14.7 minutes during those contests.

  • Magic's Moritz Wagner: Not listed on injury report

    Wagner (illness) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Saturday's matchup with the Pistons.

    Wagner missed back-to-back games due to an illness, but he's expected to return Saturday. With Robin Lopez (COVID-19 protocols) out, Wagner is expected to have a sizable role in reserve of Mo Bamba.

  • Magic's Moritz Wagner: Out again due to illness

    Wagner (non-COVID-19-related illness) has been ruled out for Wednesday's contest against the 76ers.

    Wagner was sidelined for Monday's loss to the Bulls with the ailment and was initially omitted from the injury report released ahead of Wednesday's contest before his condition apparently worsened. Admiral Schofield and Freddie Gillespie served as Orlando's primary frontcourt reserves Monday behind starters Wendell Carter and Mo Bamba, but Chuma Okeke could pick up some of Wagner's vacated minutes Wednesday now that he's exited the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols.

  • Magic's Moritz Wagner: Downgraded to questionable

    Wagner (illness) has been downgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game against the 76ers.

    Wagner was initially off the injury report, but his condition has apparently worsened. His availability may come down to a game-time call.

  • Magic's Moritz Wagner: Not listed on injury report

    Wagner (non-COVID illness) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's contest with the 76ers.

    Wagner was a late addition to the injury report with a non-COVID illness and was sidelined for Monday's loss to the Bulls. However, it appears he has cleared the aliment and will return to his usual frontcourt reserve role Wednesday.

  • Magic's Moritz Wagner: Downgraded to out

    Wagner (non-COVID illness) has been downgraded to out for Monday's contest against the Bulls.

    Wagner was a late addition to the injury report with a non-COVID illness, and as is usually the case with late additions, he won't play Monday. In his absence, Admiral Schofield and Ignas Brazdeikis are both expected to have increased roles off the bench.

  • Magic's Moritz Wagner: Dealing with non-COVID illness

    Wagner is listed as questionable for Monday's contest against the Bulls with a non-COVID-19-related illness.

    Wagner missed five games at the end of December while he was in the NBA's health and safety protocols, but it's a new illness that threatens his availability for Monday. The illness may explain why Wagner played only two minutes in Sunday's 116-111 loss to the Celtics, after having previously logged 11 and 25 minutes in his first two appearances since exiting the protocols.

  • Magic's Moritz Wagner: Productive in increased role

    Wagner ended with 19 points (5-15 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 8-10 FT), three rebounds, three assists and one steal in 25 minutes during Thursday's 136-118 loss to the Bucks.

    Wagner took advantage of some additional playing time Thursday, matching his season-high of 19 points. The fact this was only the second time all season he has played more than 20 minutes tells you everything you need to know about his long-term value. Feel free to take a flier on him but be prepared for a rapid decline once Robin Lopez, Chuma Okeke and Mo Bamba return from the health and safety protocols.

  • Magic's Moritz Wagner: Plays 11 minutes in return

    Wagner (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) chipped in seven points (2-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound, one assist and one block in 11 minutes during Tuesday's 127-110 loss to the Bucks.

    Making his return to action after missing five games while in COVID protocols, Wagner did well for himself in limited action off the bench. The Magic are still dealing with a number of injuries and virus-related absences, so Wagner could see an increased role over the next few games as he gets his wind back. Prior to entering protocols, he averaged 10.3 points, 3.0 rebound and 1.6 threes in 17.0 minutes over his last nine appearances.

  • Magic's Moritz Wagner: Not on injury report

    Wagner is not listed on the injury report ahead of Tuesday's game against Milwaukee.

    The league's COVID-19 protocols cost Wagner the last five games, but he's officially been cleared to play and should make his return to the still-shorthanded Magic's rotation Tuesday night. Due to the long layoff -- he hasn't played since Dec. 15 -- it's possible Wagner could face a minutes restriction.

  • Magic's Moritz Wagner: Clears protocols, still out Sunday

    Wagner has cleared the league's COVID-19 protocols, but he remains out for Sunday's game against the Heat while he works to regain conditioning.

    Wagner will miss his fifth straight game since being placed in health and safety protocols Dec. 17. His next chance to suit up comes Tuesday against the Bucks, but it's unclear if the 6-foot-11 big man will be in game shape by then.

  • Magic's Moritz Wagner: Lands in protocols

    Wagner was placed in health and safety protocols Friday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Wagner, R.J. Hampton and Terrence Ross all entered protocols mid-day Friday. At the same time, Cole Anthony (ankle) and Mo Bamba (ankle) were listed as questionable, so the Magic could be extremely shorthanded for the game against the Heat.

  • Magic's Moritz Wagner: Leads team with 19 points

    Wagner recorded 19 points (6-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds and one assist over 18 minutes during Wednesday's 111-99 loss to the Hawks.

    Wagner led the Magic offensively with a season high, as the forward broke his previous mark of 18 points set back against the Bucks on Nov. 22. Wagner has been buried on the team's depth chart lately with two DNP-coach's decisions over the last four games, but after Wednesday's fine outing, the Michigan product has surely made his case for more minutes.

  • Magic's Moritz Wagner: Scores 12 off bench

    Wagner finished with 12 points (5-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), two rebounds, an assist and a steal in a 108-103 win over the Nuggets on Wednesday.

    Wagner has loosely entrenched himself in Orlando's second unit, now scoring at least nine points in five straight games after only having hit that threshold once all season prior. Wagner averaged 26.0 minutes and 8.5 field goal attempts in a 11-game stint with Orlando last year but remains unlikely to approach those marks in 2021/22.

  • Magic's Moritz Wagner: Scores season-high mark off bench

    Wagner produced 18 points (5-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT), two rebounds, one assist and two blocks across 24 minutes during Monday's 123-92 loss to the Bucks.

    Wagner came out of nowhere to deliver his best scoring output of the campaign, as this was just the second time he scored in double digits all year long. In fact, he had scored 18 points over his previous five appearances combined. While this outing might lead to more minutes in the short-term picture, Wagner is still quite far from being a reliable fantasy asset across most formats.

  • Magic's Moritz Wagner: Scores four three-pointers

    Wagner recorded 13 points (4-7 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-4 FT), five rebounds and one assist across 17 minutes during a 110-103 loss Saturday at Detroit.

    Wagner recorded more points Saturday than during any other of his previous six games. A 36.0 three-point percentage has been Wagner's best asset early this season. But unfortunately for fantasy managers, he is averaging just 5.9 points per game while backing up a duo of Wendell Carter and Mo Bamba.
