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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
 
11/26/2013 10:13:00 PM
Description: Magic rookie guard Victor Oladipo has recorded a 14-6 assist-to-turnover ratio over his last three games after putting up eight assists and 17 turns the previous two.
Insight: Oladipo was set to come off the bench Tuesday at Atlanta but was re-inserted into the starting lineup after Tobias Harris complained of ankle soreness during warmups. Oladipo had 18 points, five assists, three rebounds, one block and one turnover in 29 minutes of play against the Hawks.
 
11/20/2013 9:56:00 PM
Description: Magic rookie guard Victor Oladipo scored 20 points over 36 minutes in his first career start Wednesday against the Heat. He added four rebounds, five steals, two assists, two blocks and two threes.

Description: Magic rookie guard Victor Oladipo will make his first career start Wednesday against Miami as the team goes with a small-ball approach. SOURCE: John Denton, orlandomagic.com
Insight: Oladipo will start alongside Jameer Nelsen, Arron Afflalo, Maurice Harkless and Nikola Vucevic. The 2013 No. 2 overall pick has averaged 25.5 minutes, 11.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.5 steals and an ugly 4.0 turnovers in his first 10 NBA games.
 
10/29/2013 10:18:00 PM
Description: Magic rookie guard Victor Oladipo played 23 minutes and scored 12 points on 4-of-11 shooting (1-2 3PT) with three rebounds, two assists and one steal in the season opener Tuesday at Indiana.
Insight: Oladipo has a ton of upside but his fantasy value will be limited unless the team trades Arron Afflalo, who played 33 minutes and went 3-of-14 from the field Tuesday.
