Fournier (ankle) is listed as out for Friday's game against the Trail Blazers, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports.
This will be Fournier's fourth straight absence, but he did participate in Thursday's practice in a limited fashion. However, it's likely that Fournier will need to put in at least one full practice session before he is cleared to return to the floor. Jonathan Simmons is expected to continue being the biggest benefactor from Fournier's absence, while the sharpshooter's next opportunity to return will be Sunday in Detroit.
Fournier (ankle) was limited during Thursday's practice and is questionable for Friday's matchup with the Trail Blazers, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports.
Fournier reportedly did some core work and shot free throws Thursday, but that's not necessarily encouraging for his eventual availability Friday. Still, look for him to take part in shootaround, and potentially pregame warmups, before a final decision is made on his availability. If Fournier can't give it a go, Jonathon Simmons, Mario Hezonja and D.J. Augustin would likely see a bump in minutes on the wing.
Fournier (ankle) will be sidelined for Wednesday's game against the Clippers, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Fournier will miss his third consecutive game Wednesday due to a sprained right ankle. In his stead, Arron Afflalo has been seeing extended run. But, Afflalo will come into Wednesday with a questionable tag due to back spasms. If both are held out, D.J. Augustin and Mario Hezonja would probably see expanded roles.
An MRI confirmed that Fournier has a sprained right ankle and he will not make the trip to Atlanta for Saturday's game with the Hawks, Josh Robbins of The Orlando Sentinel reports.
Fournier had already been ruled out for Friday's game against the Nuggets, so things don't look great for the shooting guard even though the Magic did not say how severe the ankle sprain is. The team has off until Wednesday after this weekend' back-to-back set, but it still seems like a long shot for Fournier to return next week. In his absence, Aaron Afflalo is likely to take over as the team's starting shooting guard and see a sizable boost in minutes.
Fournier (ankle) is listed as out for Friday's game against the Nuggets, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
After injuring his ankle in Wednesday's overtime win against the Hawks, Fournier is still yet to have an MRI, and the team is yet to know the severity of the injury. With Fournier out Friday, look for Aaron Afflalo to potentially get the start at shooting guard and see an uptick in minutes given that the Magic are fairly light on wing depth as is.
