Meanwhile, Jerian Grant played five minutes or fewer for the third game in a row, signaling that Briscoe has moved ahead of him on the depth chart as the top backup to starting point guard D.J. Augustin. While that development puts Briscoe's stock on the rise, he'll still need to carve out a greater share of the backcourt minutes before he can be considered a viable fantasy option even in most deep settings.
Briscoe contributed six points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes during Monday's loss to the Hornets.
Briscoe played a season-high 27 minutes although he was unable to make a widespread impact. The rookie guard, who's played just seven minutes in his previous four games, saw heightened run largely due to the game being out-of-hand by midway through the third quarter. Based on Briscoe's limited rotational role this season, it's unlikely he suddenly sees a sustained increase in minutes going forward.
Briscoe (illness) didn't take the court Friday against Chicago but appeared active.
Briscoe was a DNP-Coach's Decision, so he could've entered the contest if needed. He's been dealing with an illness of late, although even when healthy he hasn't contributed much to the Magic this season. Briscoe is averaging 1.7 points over 6.9 minutes per matchup over 11 games in 2018.
Briscoe is dealing with an illness and is considered doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Spurs, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.
Briscoe's absence shouldn't impact coach Steve Clifford's rotation, as the rookie has averaged just 7.0 minutes per game over 10 appearances in his inaugural NBA campaign. Once he recovers from the illness, it probably won't be long before the Kentucky product is dispatched to the G League's Lakeland Magic.
