Orlando Magic center Nikola Vucevic sat right near his season averages during Fridays defeat to the Boston Celtics, finishing with 17 points, 12 rebounds and four assists to his credit. For the eighth time in his last nine games, he attempted at least 18 shots from the field, having knocked down multiple threes in eight of those outings. No matter the opponent, Vucevics role as the primary scoring option for the Magic remains. He next squares off with a Clippers defense Sunday that he accrued 22 points against back on Jan. 16.
Orlando Magic shooting guard/small forward Evan Fournier reached the 30-point plateau for the fourth time this season during Fridays loss to the Boston Celtics. While his role in the offense has been considerable over the last calendar month, nearly everything was working for Fournier on Friday en route to him shooting 11-for-19 from the floor overall, including going 5-for-10 from behind the arc. He also added five rebounds, his highest total in an outing since Nov. 8. There are multiple mouths to feed in the Magic offense, but Fournier is a legitimate scoring threat on a nightly basis, one who draws a stingy matchup Sunday against a stout Clippers defensive unit.
Orlando Magic guard Markelle Fultz (finger) is available for Friday's game against the Boston Celtics. He dislocated his left ring finger during Wednesday's contest. He was able to play through the issue and is expected to play on Friday. It's on his non-shooting hand, so Fultz shouldn't be restricted at all. Fantasy owners should feel fine about using Fultz on Friday.
Orlando Magic shooting guard Terrence Ross scored over half of the team's bench points in Monday's win over Charlotte, finishing with 19 points on 6-for-12 shooting. He went a superb 5-for-8 with the three-ball while picking up two steals on the defensive end. Ross is enjoying a very good month, with his scoring average up by two points compared to his season's average. However, he'll run into a very difficult matchup on Wednesday against OKC. The Thunder have done a good job this season against opposing shooting guards and they are allowing the fewest bench points per game so far.
Orlando Magic shooting guard Evan Fournier felt sick before Monday's clash with the Hornets, but it didn't show on the court as the Frenchman scored a game-high 26 points on 10-for-14 shooting. He had a great night from deep with a 6-for-8 performance, and his line also included four assists, two rebounds, one steal and one block. Fournier has been inconsistent this month and he only scored a total of 27 points in his previous two outings, so it's tough to rely on him. His next matchup isn't a pretty one either against the Thunder, who boast a top-10 defense against opposing shooting guards.
