Fournier scored 23 points (6-10 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 7-8 FT) while adding two rebounds and two assists in 37 minutes during Saturday's 127-112 loss to the Pacers. It doesn't look like the sore wrist that kept Fournier off the court Thursday will hamper him over the final two games of the season, although given that the Magic are playing for nothing but draft lottery position, they could easily elect to shut him down or limit his minutes as a further precaution. Despite the fact that he's scored 20 or more points in six straight games, consider him a somewhat risky DFS play for those final contests.
Fournier (wrist) will play Saturday against the Pacers, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports. Fournier missed Thursday's win over the Nets due to soreness in his right wrist, but the 24-year-old likely would have been able to play through the injury if the Magic had anything of significance at stake. After the game off to rest, it's expected that Fournier will take back his spot in the starting five from Jodie Meeks, but it wouldn't be surprising if coach Frank Vogel refrained from handing Fournier major minutes as the Magic play out the string in another losing season.
Fournier is dealing with a sore right wrist and has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Nets, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports. It's unclear if Fournier picked up the injury in Tuesday's loss to the Cavaliers or if it's just some overall soreness as a result of the grind of the season, but either way, the Frenchman will be sidelined Thursday. With Fournier out, look for Jodie Meeks and C.J. Watson to pick up added playing time at shooting guard, while the Magic could also give Terrence Ross some extra run at that spot as well.
Fournier scored 21 points (5-12 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 7-8 FT) while adding two steals and an assist in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 122-102 loss to the Cavaliers. The 24-year-old has now scored at least 20 points in five straight games, averaging 21,0 points, 2.6 three-pointers, 2.0 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.8 boards over that stretch. Fournier's hot streak hasn't translated into wins for the Magic, however -- they've lost all five of those games as they limp towards the draft lottery.
Fournier scored 20 points (8-16 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT) while adding two steals, a rebound and an assist in 37 minutes during Saturday's 121-111 loss to the Nets. It's his fourth straight game with at least 20 points, but the Magic have managed to lose all four. Fournier has also scored in double-digits in 17 straight games while draining at least one three-pointer in 21 straight as he heads for a new career high in points per game.
