Coach Steve Clifford said that Evan Fournier's sprained UCL could "keep him out for an extended period of time."
Fournier, who initially injured his elbow on Wednesday night, has already been ruled out of Friday's game vs. the Wolves. However, it sure sounds like Clifford expects his SG to miss multiple games. Wes Iwundu will start on Friday and "for the foreseeable future." Iwundu has started 15 games this season, but averages just 7.5 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 1.1 assists in 24.5 minutes in those 15 starts. Fournier is averaging 18.8 points on 14.2 FG attempts this season, so there will be plenty of shots up for grabs in Orlando. Expect Aaron Gordon, Nikola Vucevic and Terrence Ross to be the biggest beneficiaries. Mar 06 12:16 pm (EST)
