Magic's Markelle Fultz: Goes for 15 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fultz totaled 15 points (6-15 FG, 2-4 3PT, 1-1 FT), seven assists, five rebounds and two steals in Monday's Game 4 loss to Milwaukee.

The Magic suffered a third straight loss, but Fultz bounced back after a five-point, five-assist effort in Game 3. The point guard converted a pair of outside looks for his first multi-three-pointer game since Aug. 4 against Indiana.

Magic's Markelle Fultz: Scores 11 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fultz finished with 11 points (4-11 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 Ft), two boards, three assists, one block and two steals in 26 minutes of Thursday's 111-96 Game 2 loss to Milwaukee.

Fultz once again filled out the box score, but he didn't distribute as effectively as he had in Game 1, and it showed, as the Magic fell behind early and couldn't make up the difference down the stretch. That said, the former No. 1 pick should still be feeling confident, as he's put up double-digit scoring totals in eight of his 10 games since the restart.

Magic's Markelle Fultz: Set to start in playoffs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fultz will remain in the starting lineup for Game 1 of the Magic's first-round series against the Bucks, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

While veteran D.J. Augustin started seven of Orlando's eight seeding games, coach Steve Clifford confirmed that he'll roll with Fultz in the starting lineup for Tuesday's Game 2. The 2017 No. 1 overall pick made his only start in Thursday's win over the Pelicans, finishing with 11 points, five assists, one rebound and one steal in 24 minutes. Fultz was the top option at point guard before the shutdown, starting all but one game since Nov. 2. "That's when we were playing at a high level on offense," Clifford said of his pre-pandemic player rotations. "This was all planned out beforehand. I liked our groups and we were playing at a high level and we're trying to get back to that."

Magic's Markelle Fultz: Posts 18 points vs. Nets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fultz recorded 18 points (7-18 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, two assists and two steals in 22 minutes during Tuesday's 108-96 loss to the Nets.

Tuesday marked Fultz's third game in a row scoring in double-digits, though the Magic have lost each contest. Still, it's encouraging that Fultz has been comfortable being aggressive offensively since he took fewer than 10 shots in 29 games this season.

Magic's Markelle Fultz: Goes for 16 and 10 off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fultz had 16 points (7-18 FG, 0-4 3PT, 2-2 FT), 10 assists and six rebounds in Sunday's loss to Boston.

Fultz continues to come off the bench behind veteran D.J. Augustin, but both guards played 33 minutes in the overtime contest. Fultz also added two steals and a block to his final line.

Magic's Markelle Fultz: Plays 20 minutes off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fultz scored 14 points (6-9 FG, 2-2 3PT, 0-2 FT) off the bench in Sunday's win over the Kings.

A late arrival to the Orlando bubble, Fultz has been behind schedule as he works his way back into game shape. He looked plenty comfortable in 20 minutes Sunday, hitting six field goals, including both of his attempts from beyond the arc. Fultz also added three assists, though he did commit three turnovers. At some point, Fultz figures to reclaim the starting point guard spot from veteran D.J. Augustin.

Magic's Markelle Fultz: On bench with minutes increase
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Magic coach Steve Clifford said Fultz will remain on the bench for Sunday's game against the Kings, but the point guard is expected to see an increase in playing time from the 19 minutes he logged in Friday's win over the Nets, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

Beyond saying that Fultz would be able to play "a little more" than he did Friday, Clifford didn't put a number on the 22-year-old's minutes, though a split of the playing time with starter D.J. Augustin seems like a reasonable estimate. Fultz's workload is just being restricted due to his late arrival to the Orlando bubble, but before the playoffs begin, he should be ready to handle the 30-minute role he held prior to the NBA's shutdown in mid-March. Fultz turned in a respectable showing in his first game in a four and a half months Friday, providing eight points (4-9 FG), six assists, two rebounds and one steal during his time on the court.

Magic's Markelle Fultz: To play off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fultz will come off the bench for Friday's game against the Nets, Roy Parry of the Orlando Sentinel reports. He is not expected to play significant minutes.

The Magic have brought Fultz along slowly after he was a late arrival to the bubble, and they'll ride with D.J. Augustin as the starter Friday afternoon. Coach Steve Clifford did confirm, however, that he plans to use Fultz off the bench, though it's unclear how many minutes he'll play.

Magic's Markelle Fultz: Will play in Monday's scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fultz has been cleared to play in Monday's scrimmage against Denver, Dan Savage of OrlandoMagic.com reports.

A late arrival to the Orlando bubble, Fultz was held out of the Magic's first two scrimmages, but he was able to go through 5-on-5 workouts at practice over the weekend and will be available Monday night. Coach Steve Clifford confirmed that both Fultz and Jonathan Isaac (knee) will have their minutes limited.

Magic's Markelle Fultz: Goes full five-on-five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fultz, who was late to arrive to the Orlando bubble, participated in the five-on-five portions of Friday's practice but remains out for Saturday's scrimmage against the Lakers, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

The Magic are remaining cautious with Fultz, who also missed the team's first scrimmage. Assuming he continues to make general progress in practice, it seems possible he'll play in the final scrimmage Monday against the Nuggets.

Magic's Markelle Fultz: Missing another scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Steve Clifford said Thursday that Fultz won't play in Saturday's scrimmage against the Lakers after having missed the team's first seven practices, Dan Savage of OrlandoMagic.com reports.

The Magic appear committed to easing him back into the swing of things with caution. Fultz's absence from scrimmages is due to his late arrival in the bubble for personal reasons, so there's no injury to be worried about.

Magic's Markelle Fultz: Won't play in scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fultz will not play in Wednesday's scrimmage against the Clippers, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

This doesn't appear to be injury-related, so it's likely that Orlando is simply being cautious with Fultz, who was a late arrival to the bubble.

Magic's Markelle Fultz: To practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fultz has cleared his quarantine period and will practice with the Magic on Friday, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

Fultz delayed his arrival into the bubble due to a personal issue and had to go through quarantine protocol, but now he'll be able to join his teammates. The Magic's first game is July 31 against the Nets.

Magic's Markelle Fultz: Quarantining after arrival
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fultz did not participate in practice Thursday, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

Fultz was a late arrival to the Orlando bubble, so he'll remain in quarantine for several days before being cleared to join in on team activities. Assuming everything goes smoothly, Fultz should be cleared well before games begin on July 30. The No. 1 overall pick in 2017 averaged 12.1 points, 5.2 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 1.3 steals in 28.3 minutes per game prior to the shutdown.

Magic's Markelle Fultz: Arrives in bubble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fultz (personal) has arrived in the Orlando bubble, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

Fultz delayed entering the bubble due to a personal issue unrelated to COVID-19. He has now begun his quarantine period and will be able to join his teammates afterward for practice.

Magic's Markelle Fultz: Delayed entering bubble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fultz's arrival in Orlando for the resumption of the 2019-20 season has been delayed due to a personal issue unrelated to COVID-19, Roy Parry of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

President of basketball operations Jeff Weltman noted that he expects a "seamless transition" for Fultz into the Orlando bubble, but it remains unclear when the guard will join the team. If Fultz doesn't arrive in time for the Magic's first game July 31, D.J. Augustin and Michael Carter-Williams would be in line for extra minutes at point guard.

Magic's Markelle Fultz: Scores 14 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fultz finished with 14 points (6-16 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four boards, six assists and three steals in 32 minutes of a 120-115 win against Memphis on Tuesday.

Fultz had an off shooting night but didn't let that detract from his overall game where he contributed across the board in his team's win. The third-year vet has scored in double figures in his last four games and six of his last seven.

Magic's Markelle Fultz: Lights up Houston in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fultz (calf) scored 18 points (8-12 FG, 2-3 3Pt) and added five assists and one rebound in 27 minutes Sunday in the Magic's 126-106 win over the Rockets.

Deemed questionable ahead of the game with calf tightness after sustaining the injury late in Friday's win over the Timberwolves, Fultz gained clearance ahead of tipoff and didn't see his playing time or production suffer as a result of the issue. After a poor finish to close out February, Fultz has been trending up for the past three games, averaging 18.7 points, 5.3 assists and 2.7 boards. He's shot 69.4 percent from the field during those games, however, so there may be some regression headed his way.

Magic's Markelle Fultz: Will start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fultz (calf) will start Sunday's game against the Rockets.

Fultz was battling a tight calf leading up to game time, but he'll ultimately be in the lineup at his usual point guard spot. Since the break, Fultz is averaging 12.1 points, 6.9 assists, and 2.6 rebounds per game, while shooting 51.8 percent from the field.

Magic's Markelle Fultz: Dealing with tight calf
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Magic list Fultz as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rockets with right calf tightness.

Fultz didn't appear on the Magic's first injury report of the day, but he may have experienced some pain in his calf coming out of the team's morning shootaround. As John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com notes, Fultz exited late in Friday's win over the Timberwolves with a calf cramp and didn't return, so that seems to be the genesis of the injury. If Fultz is forced to sit out Sunday, D.J. Augustin would likely handle heavy minutes as the Magic's starting point guard.
