Orlando Magic Roster

Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac (knee) is still "far off" from getting back on the court, according to Josh Robbins. The NBA is currently on hiatus, so there has been some speculation that Isaac might be able to return during the 2019-2020 season. He continues to make progress from his left knee sprain and bone bruise. There's a chance that Isaac does play again this season, but it remains a low probability at the moment. Fantasy owners should prepare to be without Isaac for the rest of the season.
Orlando Magic forward Al-Farouq Aminu (knee) has a chance to get back on the court once the NBA resumes play. He underwent surgery to repair the torn meniscus in his right knee in early January. Aminu was scheduled to be re-evaluated 12 weeks after having the surgery. There's a chance that Aminu is able to get on the court around mid-June. It's unclear when the NBA is going to return, but around June is a possibility. Aminu might be able to get back on the court, but it's unlikely he'll produce any reliable fantasy numbers this season.
Orlando Magic guard Terrence Ross finished with a team-high 24 points in the comeback win over the Grizzlies on Tuesday evening. Ross logged 31 minutes off of the bench and went 8-for-19 from the field and an adequate 5-for-11 from behind the arc. He also added a couple of boards, an assist, and was also solid on the defensive end by coming away with two blocks. The 29-year-old has turned up the volume over the last five games and is averaging just over 22 points during that span. Look for him to enjoy a bump in usage and +/- differential moving forward, primarily with Evan Fournier (elbow) out for the foreseeable future.
Orlando Magic guard/forward Evan Fournier (elbow) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies. He is dealing with a sprained UCL and is expected to miss an extended period of time, according to head coach Steve Clifford. Wesley Iwundu and Terrence Ross will see increased playing time. Ross is the better fantasy option and is worth a look in DFS contests for Tuesday. Markelle Fultz, Aaron Gordon, and Nikola Vucevic will see increased usage until Fournier is able to get back on the court.
Orlando Magic guard Terrence Ross, as usual, provided an offensive spark for his team off the bench. In 30 minutes of action, he managed to score 16 points on 5-for-10 shooting from the field, and he converted on four of his seven long-range tries. Ross also added four rebounds and three steals in what was a 20-point blowout victory for Orlando. The win marked the second in a row for the Magic after enduring a three-game losing streak. Over Ross' last 10 outings, he is averaging 20.3 points on 46.9% accuracy from the field and 47.1% from deep. That being said, the 29-year-old has proven himself to be a reliable scorer and thus is someone worth adding to your roster.
