In his first season with Orlando, Rudez struggled to see the court, playing in just 45 games overall. That translated to averages of just 1.8 points across 7.0 minutes per contest, which kept him far off the fantasy radar. While Rudez has the ability to play both forward positions, the Magic brought in Jonathan Isaac and Marreese Speights this offseason, which throws even more roadblocks in Rudez's way for potential playing time. His contract is reportedly not guaranteed, meaning he'll have to fight for a spot on the regular-season roster throughout training camp.
Rudez provided zero points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and one assist in four minutes in Monday's 113-105 loss to the Knicks.
Rudez has only appeared in six games since the beginning of February, logging double-digit minutes on just one occasion. It looks like his playing opportunities will remain limited to garbage time over the final month of the season.
Rudez played four minutes in Wednesday's 107-79 loss to the Spurs, recording one foul and no other statistics.
Rudez saw some run in garbage time at the end of the blowout, and those are typically the only scenarios in which coach Frank Vogel is willing to call the big man's number off the bench. The 30-year-old has appeared in only four of eight games in February, seeing no more than 12 minutes in any contest.
Rudez contributed three points (1-2 FG, 1-1 3Pt), one rebound and one assist in seven minutes during Sunday's 114-113 win over the Raptors.
Following a 100% shooting performance in 24 minutes against the Celtics that included going 4-4 from behind the arc, Rudez saw his role and production return to season norms. The 30-year-old third-year player is averaging 2.2 points, 0.7 rebounds, 0.5 assists and 0.3 steals in 7.6 minutes this season.
