Description: Magic guard Victor Oladipo should be a productive fantasy player, once he returns from his facial fracture.
Insight: He is expected to miss the first month of the season, but any owner who owns Oladipo should be thrilled to have him. He averaged 13.8 points per game, 4.1 rebounds per game, 4.1 assists per game, and 1.6 steals per game as a rookie, which should all trend up for this season. However, his .419 field goal percentage may take a few seasons, for owners to see a drastic improvement in. Oladipo will continue to get better and better, and at only 22-years-old, he should be a solid fantasy player for years to come.

Description: Magic starting point guard Victor Oladipo is expected to miss one month due to his facial fracture according to Yahoo Sports.
Insight: Typically, players are out five-to-seven games with a facial fracture, so this is unusual. The Magic have not announced which bone in Oladipo's face is broken. The Orlando point guard is still worth a look in deeper leagues.
 
10/24/2014 1:50:00 PM
Description: Magic starting point guard Victor Oladipo's suffered a facial fracture during Thursday's practice and is out indefinitely.
Insight: Oladipo was set for a big sophomore season after averaging 13.8 ppg, 4.1 rpg, 4.1 apg as a rookie. Evan Fournier should slide into the starting role until Oladipo returns with Ben Gordon seeing more minutes.
 
10/10/2014 6:34:00 PM
Description: Magic rookie Victor Oladipo's will not play on Friday due to "minor knee soreness" according to orlandomagic.com.

Insight: Oladipo has missed the past two games, the first absences of the season. He's averaging 13.9 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 4.0 apg, 1.6 spg - quality numbers for a first-year guy.

Description: Victor Oladipo's ankle is giving him problems and he didn't play Wednesday, but he's traveling with the Magic and should suit up on Saturday.
Insight: It was Oladipo's first absence of the season. With both Jameer Nelson (illness) and Oladipo out of the lineup, E'Twaun Moore was the best option, but Nelson could be back on Saturday as well.

Description: Victor Oladipo's ankle is giving him problems. He won't be available Wednesday against the Rockets. SOURCE: Orlando Sentinel
Insight: It's Oladipo's first absence of the season. With both Jameer Nelson (illness) and Oladipo out of the lineup, E'Twaun Moore (6.3 ppg) should see a heavy workload on Wednesday.
 
2/25/2014 9:37:00 PM
Description: Magic shooting guard Victor Oladipo scored 26 points Tuesday at Washington.
Insight: The 21-year-old has been offensively inconsistent all season and especially as of late, scoring 23 or more points in three of his last seven games but under 10 in three of them.
 
2/21/2014 10:13:00 PM
Description: Magic shooting guard Victor Oladipo had one of his best games Friday against the Knicks.
Insight: Oladipo (30 points, 14 assists, nine rebounds) was within one rebound of his second career triple-double. This comes on the heels of an awful game Wednesday against Cleveland (four points on 2-of-6 shooting). Oladipo (49 minutes) obviously benefited from the two overtime periods so fantasy owners should temper their expectations.
 
Cold2/3/2014 11:44:00 PM
Description: Orlando rookie guard Victor Oladipo has made just 5-of-27 (.185) from the field his last two games.
Insight: Oladipo's cold streak has come at a bad time for the Magic, who have played the last two games without starting point guard Jameer Nelson. The rookie made up for his shooting struggles with 11 assists, five rebounds and four steals Monday.

This isn't the last change we'll see to Orlando's starting lineup.
 
Hot1/26/2014 8:36:00 PM
Description: Magic guard Victor Oladipo had 18 points, three boards, two assists and five steals Sunday at New Orleans.
Insight: Nikola Vucevic's concussion opened up a spot in the starting lineup for Oladipo and the rookie has averaged 38 minutes, 15.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, 4.6 assists, 2.0 steals and 0.7 blocks over the last 11 games.

Description: Magic guard Victor Oladipo scored a career-high 35 points on 15-of-24 shooting with eight assists, four rebounds, three steals and a block Wednesday in a 3OT loss against the Bulls.
Insight: Oladipo's 35 points were the most by a rookie in the NBA this season. He has averaged 18 points, 4.2 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.4 steals over his last seven games while starting the last five due to the absences of Nikola Vucevic and Arron Afflalo.
 
Cold12/23/2013 9:59:00 PM
Description: Magic guard Victor Oladipo has played just 18.5 minutes per game in two games since moving to the bench.
Insight: Oladipo averaged 35.5 minutes in 16 games as a starter, but now that Tobias Harris, Glen Davis and Nikola Vucevic all are healthy he's back on the bench. The rookie also is shooting just 24.4 percent in his last four games. Put him on your bench until he heats up again and earns more playing time.

Description: Now that Tobias Harris, Glen Davis and Nikola Vucevic are finally all healthy, the Magic will shift rookie guard Victor Oladipo to the bench starting on Saturday. SOURCE: Josh Robbins, Orlando Sentinel
Insight: Oladipo averaged 35.5 minutes in 16 games as a starter. We'll see if the team makes an effort to get the 2013 No. 2 overall pick 30-plus minutes per game even though he's back on the bench. He averaged just 25.5 mpg as a reserve earlier this season.
 
12/3/2013 10:33:00 PM
Description: Michael Carter-Williams wasn't the only rookie to record a triple-double Tuesday night in Philadelphia. Magic shooting guard Victor Oladipo produced 26 points, ten boards and ten assists in 52 minutes of court time as the Sixers won 126-125 in double-overtime.
Insight: It's the first time in NBA history that two rookies have recorded a triple-double in the same game. Oladipo has averaged 18 ppg over his last five contests. The 21-year-old should be in the conversation for Rookie of the Year.
 
11/27/2013 9:23:00 PM
Description: Magic rookie guard Victor Oladipo had 18 points, five assists, three rebounds and five steals in 42 minutes Wednesday against Philadelphia. However, he also turned the ball over eight times, giving him an ugly 54-62 assist-to-turnover ratio this season.
Insight: With Tobias Harris out indefinitely and Jameer Nelson leaving Wednesday's game with a sprained foot, Oladipo should continue to start and play big minutes.
