D.J. Augustin    G  Magic



D.J. Augustin scored 18 points with six assists, six rebounds and two triples in 24 minutes against the Wolves on Tuesday. Augustin has been eerily quiet for a while, as this was just his second game with double-digit points since Dec. 20. Unless he strings a few nice games together, he'll be a deep-league asset at best.

Khem Birch    F  Magic



Khem Birch set multiple career-highs on Tuesday vs. the Wolves, scoring 12 points (4-of-6 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs) with 10 rebounds, one assist and four blocks in 19 minutes. He played a total of 20 minutes this season prior to Tuesday, but coach Frank Vogel gave him a look with Marreese Speights (personal) out and he made a big impression. It's possible that the Magic will give him another chance even when Speights returns since this is becoming a lost season anyways, so put him on your watch list if you need a big man. We'll let you know if he keeps it going on Thursday vs. the Cavaliers.

Evan Fournier    G/F  Magic



Evan Fournier went off for a career-high 32 points in Tuesday's win over the Wolves, hitting 12-of-22 shots and 2-of-2 free throws. He also matched a career-high with six triples, adding three assists and two rebounds in 35 minutes. Fournier is off to a slow start in January with averages of 14.0 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.3 triples prior to tonight, so hopefully this performance will get him going. He gets a matchup with the Cavaliers on Thursday, a team that has allowed 118+ points in four out of their last five games.

Bismack Biyombo    C  Magic



Bismack Biyombo dominated the Wolves with 10 points, 16 rebounds (six offensive), two assists, one steal and five blocks in a 108-102 win on Tuesday. That's his 17th career game with five or more blocks and his second of the season (he also had five blocks on Dec. 26). Biyombo has been dominant over his last three games with 15.0 points, 12.6 rebounds and 2.3 blocks, and while he'll continue to eat while Nikola Vucevic (hand) is out, the Magic will have a tough decision on their hands around the trade deadline -- Vucevic is on the books for $12.7 million next season and could be a trade candidate with Orlando looking at another lost season.

Arron Afflalo    SG  Magic



Afflalo was ejected from Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves after throwing a punch at Minnesota's Nemanja Bjelica, John Denton of reports. Afflalo and Bjelica got tangled up in the second quarter of Tuesday's contest, with Afflalo throwing a punch before Bjelica put him in a headlock. Considering the situation, there's a very good chance Afflalo faces some sort of suspension, so that will be something to monitor over the next few days. The Magic's next game comes on Thursday against the Cavaliers. Prior to the ejection, Afflalo finished scoreless (0-2 FG), with one rebound across five minutes.

Arron Afflalo    G/F  Magic



Arron Afflalo and Nemanja Bjelica were both ejected in the second quarter of Tuesday's game. Both players were chirping at each other for a few minutes, but Afflalo started swinging when the two were competing for a rebound. Afflalo is likely looking at a suspension, but he shouldn't be owned in fantasy leagues anyways. While he's out, Wes Iwundu and Mario Hezonja could pick up some extra minutes.


Jan 16 - 7:50 PM

Marreese Speights    F/C  Magic



Marreese Speights (personal) has been ruled out Tuesday's game vs. Minnesota. Speights is averaging just 13.3 minutes per game, so this doesn't make much of an impact in most fantasy formats. Aaron Gordon could log a few more minutes than usual.


Jan 16 - 7:01 PM

Marreese Speights    PF  Magic



Speights will not be with the Magic for Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves for personal reasons, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports. This is the first we've heard of a potential absence for Speights, who's set to be sidelined with a personal matter. It's unclear if this will just be a one-game absence or if he could miss more contests, so tentatively consider him questionable for Thursday's game against the Cavaliers as well. Speights' absence should open even more minutes for Mario Hezonja, who's played a key role as an injury replacement over the last month or so.

Bismack Biyombo    C  Magic



Biyombo recorded 10 points (3-7 FG, 4-5 FT), 16 rebounds, five blocks, two assists and one steal across 29 minutes during a 108-102 win over the Timberwolves on Tuesday. Biyombo was phenomenal as he stayed hot in Tuesday's win. He picked up his second consecutive double-double and the 16 boards were a season high. Biyombo is now averaging a stellar 11.8 points on 60 percent shooting, 11.4 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.8 blocks per game over his last five outings, making him an intriguing add. Nikola Vucevic's eventual return will likely affect his value, though.

Evan Fournier    SF  Magic



Fournier totaled 32 points (12-22 FG, 6-12 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists and two rebounds across 35 minutes during a 108-102 win over the Timberwolves on Tuesday. Fournier's 32 points and six three-pointers made marked season highs as he got hot after a quiet 10 points in has last outing. He started the season on fire, with nine 20-point efforts in his first 11 games, and this could be a sign that he is starting to find that form again.
