G - Orlando Magic
Michael Carter-Williams scored 15 points (6-12 FG, 1-3 3PT, 2-4 FT) with eight rebounds, three assists, a steal, a block, and two turnovers across 27 minutes during Wednesday's 115-106 win against the Chicago Bulls.
MCW shot fifty percent from the field during Wednesday's win against the Bulls, adding eight rebounds while forcing a steal and a block on defense to help the Magic end their six-game losing skid. The rangy point guard continues to start for Orlando and can be added to your lineups as a salary saver in DFS or a streaming option in category and point leagues, as he will get his next opportunity against the Toronto Raptors on Friday.
Michael Carter-Williams registered 13 points (4-6 FG, 2-3 3PT, 3-6 FT) with four rebounds, five assists, four steals, a block, and two turnovers across 21 minutes during Wednesday's 131-116 loss to the Washington Wizards.
Carter-Williams returned from a three-game absence due to illness and facilitated well from the starting point guard role. His shot volume was limited but he still drained two triples and elevated his value through four steals and a block on defense. Factoring in the five assists MCW dished, fantasy managers should roster the veteran either as added depth or into starting lineups in need of a reliable point guard. The Magic will get a day off before hosting the Indiana Pacers on Friday.
