Hezonja scored 15 points (3-9 FG, 3-5 3PT, 6-7 FT) to go with eight rebounds, six assists, two steals and five turnovers in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 101-92 win against Washington.
Hezonja finished the season strong, averaging 13.8 points while starting the final six games of the season. In the end, the forward averaged a career-high 9.6 points while playing a career-best 22.1 minutes in 75 games. Hezonja benefited from the absence of Evan Fournier over the last month of the season. Looking ahead, the impending free agent reached the off-season on a strong note.
Hezonja produced 14 points (5-11 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five assists, three rebounds and a steal in 28 minutes during Sunday's 112-101 loss to the Raptors.
Hezonja has performed well in Evan Fournier's (knee) absence, and he's averaged 11.1 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 2.9 assists in the 14 games since Fournier was injured. Fournier won't see the floor again this season so Hezonja will continue to start, but he carries risk as a DFS play due to his volatile stat lines.
Hezonja totaled 12 points (5-14 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, four assists, three blocks and two steals across 35 minutes during a 105-100 win over the Mavericks on Wednesday.
Hezonja received another start and had a strong all-around effort despite a poor shooting percentage. His three blocks matched a season high. Hezonja would continue to benefit if the team continues sitting a wide variety of players to close out the season.
Hezonja will start at small forward for Tuesday's matchup with the Knicks.
The Magic will be without the likes of Jonathon Simmons (wrist), Jonathan Isaac (ankle) and Evan Fournier (knee), so Hezonja will draw the start and should see big minutes. For that reason, he'll see a temporary uptick in playing time and production, which gives him plenty of utility for DFS contests Tuesday.
Hezonja contributed 14 points (5-12 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three steals, two rebounds and one block across 28 minutes in Sunday's 94-88 loss to the Hawks.
Hezonja has come off the bench, but has played more than some starters, as he tallied 28 minutes Sunday night. His defensive abilities and three-point range has allowed him to be a viable threat for the Magic to close the season as he continues to audition for more minutes in the seasons to come.
