James Ennis III
F - ORL - OUT
James Ennis III scored 15 points (5-5 FG, 2-2 3PT, 3-3 FT) with three rebounds and a steal across 16 minutes in Thursday's 129-92 blowout loss against the Brooklyn Nets.
Ennis shot a perfect 100 FG% on Thursday, resulting in 15 points; the highest output in his last two weeks of action. The SG/SF is not a fantasy-relevant player despite being in the Magic starting lineup, as Nikola Vucevic, Evan Fournier and Terrence Ross are the primary offensive weapons deployed by head coach Steve Clifford. Ennis can be rostered in deeper leagues but he is extremely risky to insert into starting lineups due to his low ceiling and low floor in point formats.
Orlando Magic head coach Steve Clifford said he expects forward James Ennis to return to the lineup in Friday's game against the Warriors.
Ennis missed the last two games with a groin injury but should return Friday. Before his injury, he's started in 19 straight games, so he should slide back into the starting lineup against the Warriors.
Orlando Magic guard James Ennis III (groin) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.
The Magic will once again be missing Ennis. The veteran guard will log his second consecutive miss. The Magic will be shorthanded as Ennis along with six other players will miss Wednesday's game. Expect for the team to turn to Dwayne Bacon and Michael Carter-Williams to log heavy minutes against the Knicks.
Orlando Magic guard James Ennis III (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Suns.
Ennis along with three other Magic players will be inactive for Sunday's game. With a rash of injuries, the Magic will be left shorthanded with only eight active players on the roster. The veteran guard's absence should pave the way for Chuma Okeke and Dwayne Bacon to see increased roles.
James Ennis III scored 17 points (7-12 FG, 3-5 3PT) with 10 rebounds, an assist, two steals and three turnovers across 39 minutes in a 111-105 loss against the Golden State Warriors on Thursday.
Ennis III secured his first double-double of the 2021 season, shooting 58.3 FG% and knocking down three triples while securing two steals to boost his fantasy output in points formats on Thursday. The Magic were forced to pivot to other options in their starting rotation for offensive production and the veteran forward delivered for those fantasy managers who took a risk inserting Ennis into starting lineups. Ennis and the Magic will have a quick turnaround for their next game against the Sacramento Kings on Friday night.
