Magic's Jonathan Isaac: Listed as questionable for Wednesday
Isaac (ankle) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the 76ers, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports.
Isaac has missed the last six games with a sprained right ankle, but he's been upgraded to questionable for Wednesday's contest after completing an on-court workout -- which included testing his ankle with jumping and cutting -- with no issues Monday. Look for his status to clear up closer to tip-off.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Terrence Ross: Scores team-high 21 off bench
Ross scored 21 points (7-14 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding three rebounds, two assists and a block in 25 minutes off the bench during Monday's 117-109 loss to the Wizards.
The streaky shooter is dialed in at the moment, leading Orlando in scoring in consecutive games while hitting for double-digit points in six straight. Ross is averaging 17.0 points, 3.3 boards, 3.0 three-pointers and 2.2 assists over that six-game stretch, converting 47.4 percent of his attempts from beyond the arc, but the 27-year-old's track record suggests he could go ice cold at any moment....

Magic's Evan Fournier: Scores 20 in loss to Wizards
Fournier scored 20 points (7-14 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding five assists, two rebounds and a steal in 29 minutes during Monday's 117-109 loss to the Wizards.
The five dimes were a team high, while Fournier struck for 20-plus points for the third time this season. The 26-year-old guard has once again provided some steady complementary scoring for Orlando -- he's failed to score in double digits just once in 14 games, and he still dropped nine points in that one -- and his 4.4 assists and 1.4 steals per game would be career highs if he can keep up that pace....

Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Third straight double-double
Vucevic scored 17 points (8-17 FG, 1-3 3Pt) while adding 11 rebounds, three assists and a steal in 32 minutes during Monday's 117-109 loss to the Wizards.
The 28-year-old recorded his third straight double-double, and ninth in 14 games, in the losing effort. Vucevic has been a rock for the Magic so far, scoring in double digits while grabbing at least eight boards in every game, and he's just a couple of made three-pointers away from averaging at least one steal, one block and one three a night as well....

Magic's Aaron Gordon: Double-double in loss to Wizards
Gordon scored 18 points (8-13 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in 33 minutes during Monday's 117-109 loss to the Wizards.
He returned from a one-game absence due to a minor ankle injury looking none the worse for wear, recording his fifth double-double of the season. Gordon's taking fewer shots so far this season, resulting in a slight downturn in his scoring average, but he's also on pace for a career-high 8.2 boards to help make up for it.... See More ...

Magic's Jonathan Isaac: Goes through on-court workout
Isaac (ankle) went through an on-court workout Monday afternoon, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Isaac will miss a sixth straight game Monday as he nurses an ankle injury, but he told reporters he had a productive workout that included testing his ankle with jumping and cutting. The second-year forward is without a firm timetable, but the Magic will likely exercise caution after Isaac missed the bulk of his rookie season with ankle complications.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Jarell Martin: Back to bench Monday
Martin will come off the bench Monday against the Wizards.
Martin entered the starting five Sunday with Aaron Gordon sidelined and finished with seven points and six boards in 27 minutes of action. Gordon is back healthy Monday, so Martin will return to his usual role as off the bench, where he's highly unlikely to be fantasy-relevant.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Aaron Gordon: Will start Monday
Gordon (ankle) has been cleared to start Monday's game in Washington.
Gordon missed the team's last game with an ankle injury and was initially listed as questionable Monday, but he went through a pregame evaluation and has been cleared to return. The Arizona product will slide back into the lineup at power forward, pushing Jarell Martin back to the bench.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Timofey Mozgov: Ruled out Monday
Mozgov (knee) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Wizards, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.
Mozgov has been sidelined all season with a sore right knee. Even if he were healthy, the big man likely wouldn't play enough to be on the fantasy radar.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Jonathan Isaac: Remains out Monday
Isaac (ankle) is unavailable for Monday's game against the Wizards, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.
Isaac is set to miss a sixth straight game as he continues to deal with a sprained right ankle. The good news is the big man has been able to do some shooting and conditioning work recently, so he appears to be trending in the right direction. His next chance to play will come Wednesday against the 76ers.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Aaron Gordon: Listed as questionable Monday
Gordon (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Wizards, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.
Gordon is in jeopardy of missing a second consecutive game as he continues to nurse an ankle injury that he picked up in Friday's win over Washington. The Magic will likely wait until closer to game-time to determine his status. If Gordon is unable to play again, look for Jonathon Simmons, Wesley Iwundu and Jarell Martin to benefit from some extra run.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Jarell Martin: Nice production in start
Martin had seven points (2-10 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists, two steals, and one block in 27 minutes during Sunday's 115-89 victory over New York.
Martin set season-highs in just about every category Sunday, moving into the starting lineup, replacing the injured Aaron Gordon (ankle). While the shooting was not there, he did contribute across the board and certainly appeared comfortable on the floor. If Gordon is forced to miss any more time, Martin will likely be the beneficiary and is worth a flier in deeper formats.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Mohamed Bamba: Scores 15 points Sunday
Bamba totaled 15 points (5-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds and two blocks in 17 minutes during Sunday's 115-89 victory over the Knicks.
That makes back-to-back 15 point games for Bamba and three double-digit scoring games from his past five. Across that period he has also blocked a combined eight shots while hauling in 29 rebounds. He remains very raw but is doing enough to have value in deeper formats. Those in standard leagues could look at him if blocks are required but he is more of a streamer than a regular rotation guy.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Terrence Ross: Leads team with 22 points Sunday
Ross managed 22 points (8-12 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three assists, two blocks, and one rebound in 22 minutes during Sunday's 115-89 victory over New York.
Ross led the way with 22 points Sunday, helping the team to what can only be described as an effortless victory. This was nothing more than a training run for the Magic with no one appearing to break a sweat. He has been putting up some sneaky value over the past two weeks in limited playing time. He is still more of a deeper league player but has some nice streaming value if you need points, threes, and steals.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Impressive again in comfortable victory
Vucevic finished with 21 points (10-17 FG, 1-3 3Pt), 14 rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 26 minutes during Sunday's 115-89 victory over the Knicks.
This game was basically over after 5 minutes which allowed Vucevic to spend some additional time on the sidelines. He still produced an impressive 21 and 14 double-double, a line his owners should be thrilled with. He has been excellent to begin the season, putting all thoughts of reduced playing time in the rear-view mirror.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Jarell Martin: Will start Sunday
Martin is in Sunday's starting lineup against the Knicks, Dante Marchitelli of Fox Sports Florida reports.
With Aaron Gordon officially out with an ankle injury, Martin will see an increased role as expected. He's averaging 2.7 points along with 2.1 rebounds through the first seven games of the season.... See More ... See Less
