Magic's James Ennis: Starting during opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ennis will start during Friday's restart opener against the Nets.

With Wes Iwundu (neck) sidelined and the Magic bringing Jonathan Isaac off the bench for his first game back, Ennis will draw the start at small forward. In his 10 starts this season he's averaging 6.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 24.7 minutes.

Magic's James Ennis: Starts, scores 15 in scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ennis generated 15 points (7-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist and three steals in Monday's 114-110 scrimmage win over Denver.

Ennis and Gary Clark were Orlando's starting forwards with Aaron Gordon (groin) out and Jonathan Isaac gradually returning from his knee injury. The veteran Ennis proved he's still worthy of NBA minutes and was tied Monday with Nikola Vucevic for most shot attempts (13). Since leaving the Sixers for Orlando in February, Ennis started 10 of 12 games for the Magic before the sports stoppage and averaged 23.1 minutes per contest. Ennis' minutes will probably decline with the return of a healthy Isaac, who came off the bench for a modest seven minutes of run on Monday.

Magic's James Ennis: Tested positive, now cleared
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ennis recently tested positive for coronavirus but has since been cleared to play and returned to the practice floor Wednesday, John Denton of reports.

Ennis also shared that he thinks he'll be ready to play in the Magic's scrimmages next week. He started Orlando's final 10 games before the hiatus, averaging 6.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 24.7 minutes.

Magic's James Ennis: Enters starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ennis is in the starting lineup Friday against the Mavericks.

Ennis averaged 15.0 minutes off the bench in his first two games with the Magic after being acquired from the Sixers on Feb. 6, but he could be in line for an expanded role Friday. He totaled 13 points, six rebounds and one assist over his first first two games with the team.

Magic's James Ennis: Logs 16 minutes in Magic debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ennis collected six points (2-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), five rebounds and one assist in 16 minutes during Monday's 135-126 win over the Hawks.

Ennis provided a decent stat line in his Magic debut, although his minute total was certainly modest. There have been years where Ennis has averaged 20-plus minutes, but even at his best he's not an appealing fantasy option outside of deeper leagues.

Magic's James Ennis: Available Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Magic coach Steve Clifford said Ennis will play in Monday's game against the Hawks, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

Ennis is slated to make his Magic debut against a Hawks team that boasts the league's fourth-worst defense in terms of points allowed per game. It's unclear what type of role Ennis will be in store for initially, though he has a good chance of securing playing time at either forward spot. In 15.8 minutes per game for Philadelphia this season, Ennis averaged 5.8 points and 3.1 rebounds before he was traded to the Magic last week.

Magic's James Ennis: Could debut Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Steve Clifford said Ennis could be available to make his Magic debut Monday versus the Hawks, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

After being acquired from Philadelphia on Thursday, Ennis was withheld from action in the Magic's loss to Milwaukee on Saturday since he didn't have the benefit of practicing with his new team beforehand. The veteran forward was able to put in a full workout Sunday, however, so he should at least suit up Monday, even if he doesn't immediately enter the rotation. The Magic have been getting limited production from Khem Birch and Wes Iwundu since starting power forward Jonathan Isaac (knee) went down in early January with a likely season-ending injury, so it wouldn't be surprising if Ennis receives an extended look at some point.

Magic's James Ennis: Won't be active Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ennis (not injury related) won't be active for Saturday's game against Milwaukee, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

Ennis will miss a third consecutive game as he gets acclimated in Orlando. Considering he's not dealing with any long-term injuries at the moment, there's a strong chance that the veteran guard will be made available at some point over the upcoming homestand.

Magic's James Ennis: Sent to Orlando
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ennis was traded from the 76ers to the Magic on Thursday in exchange for a second-round pick, Kyle Neubeck of reports.

Ennis hasn't played much of a factor for the 76ers this season, averaging 5.8 points and 3.1 rebounds across 15.8 minutes. He should provide the Magic with additional depth on the wing, and he could push the likes of Khem Birch and Wes Iwundu for playing time. Ennis won't be available to play in the Magic's game Thursday against the Knicks, but he could be ready to make his debut Saturday versus the Bucks.

76ers' James Ennis III: Logs 11 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ennis amassed six points (1-2 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two rebounds and one steal in 11 minutes during Saturday's 90-87 win over the Knicks.

Ennis has received double-digit minutes in three straight games, this after receiving his first DNP-Coach's Decision during Monday's matchup versus the Pacers. Still, Matisse Thybulle and Furkan Korkmaz seem to have leapfrogged Ennis in the wing rotation, so the 29-year-old veteran can likely be avoided in most leagues.

76ers' James Ennis III: Healthy scratch versus Pacers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ennis (coach's decision) didn't see the floor during Monday's 101-95 loss to the Pacers.

Ennis remained on the bench for the entirety of this one while Matisse Thybulle and Furkan Korkmaz combined to log 51 minutes. Ennis had appeared in 39 of 40 games to begin the campaign, missing one game earlier this month due to an illness, so it was somewhat surprising that his number wasn't called at all. Even at his best, Ennis is a modest contributor and veteran role player who's not a viable fantasy option beyond deeper leagues.

76ers' James Ennis III: Removed from report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ennis (illness) doesn't appear on the 76ers' injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Thunder.

Ennis only missed one game with the illness, so he shouldn't face any restrictions in his return to action Monday. Before succumbing to the ailment, Ennis had averaged 5.4 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 18.2 minutes per game off the bench over his previous 10 appearances.

76ers' James Ennis III: Unavailable Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ennis (illness) was ruled out for Friday's game versus the Rockets, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

The 29-year-old was considered doubtful due to the stomach illness, so it's no real surprise he won't be suiting up in Hoston. Ennis is averaging 6.7 points and 3.5 rebounds in 17.7 minutes this season, but the 76ers will have to look elsewhere off the bench Friday.

76ers' James Ennis III: Unlikely to play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ennis (illness) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Rockets.

Ennis is on track to sit out Friday's game in Houston after missing Thursday's practice due to a stomach illness. Over his last five games, the forward is averaging 5.0 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.0 assist in 19.8 minutes.

76ers' James Ennis III: Dealing with stomach bug
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ennis didn't participate in Thursday's practice due to a stomach ailment, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Ennis will look to overcome the gastrointestinal illness before Friday's 8 p.m. ET tipoff with the Rockets arrives. Expect the 76ers to provide an update on Ennis' condition after their morning shootaround Friday.

76ers' James Ennis III: Scores 10 in 15 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ennis posted 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT), three assists, two rebounds and one block in 15 minutes during Friday's 116-109 win over the Pelicans.

Ennis turned in a solid stat line despite being whistled for five fouls in fairly limited minutes. Rookie wing Matisse Thybulle seems to have leapfrogged Ennis in the rotation, but the 29-year-old veteran has been a pretty dependable option off the bench for the 76ers. Nevertheless, he's best reserved for use in deeper leagues.

76ers' James Ennis: Scores 20 in Friday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ennis pitched in 20 points (4-5 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 9-9 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one block in 22 minutes during Friday's 101-95 win over the Knicks.

Ennis was extraordinarily efficient, pouring in a season-high 20 points while finishing with career highs in free throws made and attempted. He stepped up with Josh Richardson (hamstring) out, this despite the fact that Matisse Thybulle and Furkan Korkmaz received the starting nods in place of Richardson and Al Horford (rest). Depending on what Philadelphia's injury report looks like heading into Saturday's matchup versus the Pacers, Ennis could potentially be in line for another night of 20-plus minutes, which he's seen in just of four of 19 appearances thus far this season.

76ers' James Ennis: Paces bench with 14 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ennis tallied 14 points (5-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds and one block in 16 minutes off the bench Sunday in the 76ers' 114-95 win over the Cavaliers.

The scoring total was a season high for Ennis, who finally got hot from beyond the arc after nailing only 25 percent of his three-point attempts through the 76ers' first 12 games. Ennis won't see enough run in most games to make for a reliable streaming option, but he and Furkan Korkmaz at least seem to have solidified himself as Philadelphia's top reserves on the wing.

76ers' James Ennis: Forceful on the boards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ennis compiled eight points (3-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 11 rebounds and one assist in 19 minutes of action in the 76ers' 117-95 win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday.

Ennis produced his highest rebounding total along with his second highest scoring output of the season in a game that was overshadowed by a skirmish between Karl-Anthony Towns and Joel Embiid. While the forward's production was relatively substantial, his fantasy upside is limited considering he shares the same spot in the rotation with prized rookie Matisse Thybulle.

76ers' James Ennis: Logs 13 minutes in preseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ennis had three points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and three rebounds in 13 minutes during Friday's 112-93 loss to the Wizards.

Ennis was quiet in his return from a one-game absence with a calf injury. He was serviceable in the playoffs last year on a team lacking depth along the wing, but the 76ers addressed that need by drafting Matisse Thybulle, plus some of the other young wings might be ready to step up to the plate this year as well.
