Fantasy Impact: Martin's free agency comes to an end Friday after joining the Cavaliers. He'll join Cleveland now for training camp and preseason but may have a tough time making the final roster. Martin averaged 2.7 points, 1.7 rebounds, 0.4 assists, and 0.1 steals in 42 games last season.

Fantasy Impact: Isaac takes only a little value from Aaron Gordon but Isaac presents a tough matchup for Pascal Siakam because of his defensive prowess. Isaac is only a punt play in DFS.

Aaron Gordon had 19 points, seven rebounds, and six assists in 40 minutes on Wednesday against the Knicks. He shot 7-of-14 from the field with three three-pointers in the win.

Fantasy Impact: After putting up a dud with just six points in his last game, Gordon rebounded for strong 19-point effort on Wednesday. He should continue to play big minutes down the stretch as the Magic try to secure a playoff spot.

Terrence Ross put up 23 points, four rebounds, and five assists in Wednesday night's win. Ross shot 5-for-10 from beyond the arc, including three straight treys in the last 1:05 of the third quarter to give Orlando and comfortable lead over New York.

Fantasy Impact: Ross's superb shooting this season has made him a valuable asset for the Magic and fantasy owners alike. Orlando has three remaining regular season games, which are against the Hawks, Celtics, and Hornets.

Evan Fournier shot 8-of-16 from the field and finished with 21 points in 30 minutes of action. He added four rebounds and four assists in the 121-109 loss to the Raptors.

D.J. Augustin led the Magic in assists against Indiana on Friday night with 10, to go along with 11 points and four rebounds. Augustin was especially effective in only playing 30 minutes against the Pacers.

Fantasy Impact: Augustin has been very solid lately for Orlando as they fight to make the playoffs. D.J. makes for a great streaming option down the stretch as he keeps playing in meaningful games.

Wes Iwundu put up 14 points and seven rebounds in 25 minutes against the Hawks on Sunday night. Iwundu shot 3-for-7 from the field, 2-for-4 from the arc, and 6-for-8 from the line.

Fantasy Impact: Veteran Michael Carter-Williams was signed to a 10-day contract a few days ago to provide depth to the backcourt, but he played less minutes and shot less than Iwundu. After Sunday's performance, Iwundu may be a name to keep an eye on as a plug-and-play or cheap DFS consideration if he continues to play well.

Fantasy Impact: Simmons will fill a bench role for the Sixers with limited fantasy appeal behind Jimmy Butler. The key to the deal for the Sixers is the addition of a first round pick and the subtraction of the whole Fultz situation.

Khem Birch put up eight points, five rebounds, and one steal on Tuesday night against the Thunder. In the seven games that Bamba has not played this season, Birch is averaging 5.86 points in 16 minutes per game, which is an improvement from his season average of 2.7 points in 9 minutes per game.

Fantasy Impact: Prior to the game, rookie center Mohamed Bamba was ruled out indefinitely with a left leg injury that could end his season. Despite being in immediate position for more minutes, Birch will still play behind All-Star center Nikola Vucevic, so he is valued as a cheap DFS consideration at best.

Fantasy Impact: Bamba's rookie season will be close to or done for the season especially if the Magic make some moves at the deadline for draft picks.

Jerian Grant was held out of Wednesday's game against the Jazz. Grant had only played a total of 11 minutes in the previous three games.

Fantasy Impact: Head coach Steve Clifford has been trying use different lineup rotations to spark some life into Orlando's struggling bench play. Grant has seen his minutes drop off considerably since late December, while Wesley Iwundu has seen more opportunities. Grant should remain on fantasy waivers.
