The Orlando Magic have ruled guard Markelle Fultz out of Wednesday’s contest vs. the Los Angeles Lakers.

Fultz is dealing with an illness and will be replaced in the starting lineup by D.J. Augustin tonight. The Magic have a tough matchup at home vs. the Lakers, who are a top 10 defensive team that does a good job on the glass. Augustin is only $4,800 on DraftKings, so he becomes a viable value option for GPPs and tournaments. He should see upward of 30 minutes if the game is competitive.
