Fultz finished with 14 points (6-16 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four boards, six assists and three steals in 32 minutes of a 120-115 win against Memphis on Tuesday. Fultz had an off shooting night but didn't let that detract from his overall game where he contributed across the board in his team's win. The third-year vet has scored in double figures in his last four games and six of his last seven.
Fultz (calf) scored 18 points (8-12 FG, 2-3 3Pt) and added five assists and one rebound in 27 minutes Sunday in the Magic's 126-106 win over the Rockets. Deemed questionable ahead of the game with calf tightness after sustaining the injury late in Friday's win over the Timberwolves, Fultz gained clearance ahead of tipoff and didn't see his playing time or production suffer as a result of the issue. After a poor finish to close out February, Fultz has been trending up for the past three games, averaging 18.7 points, 5.3 assists and 2.7 boards. He's shot 69.4 percent from the field during those games, however, so there may be some regression headed his way.
Fultz (calf) will start Sunday's game against the Rockets. Fultz was battling a tight calf leading up to game time, but he'll ultimately be in the lineup at his usual point guard spot. Since the break, Fultz is averaging 12.1 points, 6.9 assists, and 2.6 rebounds per game, while shooting 51.8 percent from the field.
The Magic list Fultz as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rockets with right calf tightness. Fultz didn't appear on the Magic's first injury report of the day, but he may have experienced some pain in his calf coming out of the team's morning shootaround. As John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com notes, Fultz exited late in Friday's win over the Timberwolves with a calf cramp and didn't return, so that seems to be the genesis of the injury. If Fultz is forced to sit out Sunday, D.J. Augustin would likely handle heavy minutes as the Magic's starting point guard.
Fultz ended with 24 points (11-14 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-5 FT), five rebounds, five assists and one steal in 27 minutes during Friday's 132-118 victory over the Timberwolves. Fultz had his highest-scoring game in two months, scoring 24 points in the win. Evan Fournier (elbow) is set to miss multiple games which could open up a lot on the offensive end for Fultz. He has been a solid enough 12-team asset all season; however, with Fournier out, Fultz could certainly finish the season with a bang. If he is floating around on your waiver wire, it makes sense to give him a long look.
