News: The Magic took a chance on a minimum-contract youngster last season, and E'Twaun Moore proved capable of giving them some decent minutes at times. Moore averaged 7.8 points, 2.7 assists and 2.2 rebounds per game with the Magic this season, and has likely done enough for the team to bring him back into the fold. He is owed just $884,293 next season, if he is not waived by June 30.
Analysis: Moore averaged 11.0 points per game in the month of November, and was useful for other stretches of the season as a Fantasy option. He struggled to shoot the ball and play point guard when asked to, but he can score the ball if put in the right role. The Magic are certain to be rebuilding again next season, so Moore should continue to find minutes. Despite that, he is unlikely to be worth targeting on Draft Day in most Fantasy formats.
News: Orlando guard E'Twaun Moore had one of his better games lately on Tuesday in a loss at Indiana. Moore scored eight points and played 19 minutes. He shot 4 of 7 from the field and added two assists.
Analysis: Moore had fallen out of the rotation for the Magic but has seen a few more minutes of late. Still, with Jameer Nelson healthy, Moore will have low-end Fantasy value in all formats.
News: Magic guard E'Twaun Moore turned in another underwhelming performance during Tuesday's contest against the Lakers. Moore finished with just three points in the 106-97 defeat on 1 of 4 shooting from the field. His lone made did come from behind the arc and he added three rebounds and one steal to his stat line, while logging 18 minutes off the bench.
Analysis: By now Fantasy owners more than know the deal when it comes to Moore. The 24-year-old has proved to a very production Fantasy option he starts, but he has yet to figure out how to consistently get his numbers as a reserve. In fact, Moore is averaging 12.1 points and 5.5 assists over his 12 starts this season compared to just 7.1 points and 1.9 dimes when he comes off the bench. With Jameer Nelson now healthy and playing well, owners should consider Moore merely an insurance policy for Nelson.
News: Magic guard E'Twaun Moore notched his first career double-double during Tuesday's win over the 76ers. Moore, who was making his third straight start in place of the injured Jameer Nelson, finished with 12 points and a career-high 10 assists in the 98-94 win. He made four of his nine field-goal attempts and also added a steal to his stat line, while logging 35 minutes of game action.
Analysis: Moore continues to play well when he gets a chance to start as he is now averaging 12 points and 7.3 assists over his last three games. He is actually putting up 12.4 points and 5.1 dimes over his 13 starts on the year, but continues to be blocked by Nelson. The 24-year-old has not been nearly as productive as a reserve (7.4 points and 2.1 assists), so owners should take advantage and get him active, while Nelson remains sidelined.
News: Magic guard E'Twaun Moore played a big role for the second straight game Saturday against the Cavaliers, as Jameer Nelson continues to deal with a knee injury. Moore scored 12 points on 5 of 12 shooting in the game, while adding five assists in 28 minutes. Moore did rack up four turnovers, however, in a 118-94 loss.
Analysis: Moore is averaging 12.5 points and 4.6 assists per game as a starter this season, solid enough numbers that dwarf what he has done otherwise. He has totaled 24 points and 12 assists in two game since Nelson went down, so he is currently right in line with expectations. As long as Nelson remains out, Moore should be looked at as a decent low-end Fantasy fill in.
News: Magic guard E'Twaun Moore struggled to make much of an impact in Sunday's contest against the Trail Blazers. Moore went 2 of 4 shooting from the field as he finished with four points, a rebound and an assist while logging 10 minutes of game action in 110-104 victory.
Analysis: Moore has seen his minutes take a hot since Jameer Nelson returned to action in Week 15 (Feb. 4-10). In fact, he is averaging just 14.5 minutes of game action over his last two games. He is also 7.6 points, 3.6 assists and 3.0 rebounds over his last five games. Now that Nelson is back in the starting lineup, Fantasy owners should view the 23-year-old as a low-end option in deeper formats heading into Week 16 (Feb. 11-17).
News: With Jameer Nelson still nursing forearm injury, Magic guard E'Twaun Moore earned his second straight start during Monday's contest against the 76ers. Moore, who was making his ninth start of the year, finished with a team-high 18 points in the 78-61 win. He made nine of his 17 field-goal attempts and also added three rebounds, two assists and one steal to his stat line, while logging 37 minutes of game action.
Analysis: Moore continues to serve as Nelson's primary backup at point guard, which unfortunately limits his minutes and production most nights. However, Moore is averaging a very productive 13.1 points and 4.3 assists over his nine starts this season and is shooting 43 percent over that stretch. Fantasy owners -- especially in daily formats should keep an eye on Nelson's status moving forward. While Moore doesn't have much Fantasy value as a reserve, he can be considered a viable low-end option stopgap option while Nelson remains sidelined.
News: After scoring in double figures for the first time since Dec. 26 his last time out, Magic guard E'Twaun Moore was able to do so again Sunday against the Pistons. He matched his season high with 18 points in the 104-102 loss. He went 7 fro 14 from the field, including 1 for 4 from downtown, and made all three of his free throws. Moore also posted three assists, two steals and a rebound while playing 29 minutes off the bench.
Analysis: Moore struggled when he first returned from his elbow injury but has been looking better of late. He is averaging 9.8 points with 2.2 rebounds in the previous five contests on 43 percent shooting. The 23-year-old has made some solid strides in his second season out of Purdue but remains an option for the deepest of Fantasy formats at this point.
News: Magic guard E'Twaun Moore had a hard time finding his hot but managed to get back in double figures during Thursday's contest against the Raptors. He went 2 of 7 shooting form the field, including 1 of 3 from downtown, but a perfect 6 of 6 from the charity stripe. Moore finished with 11 points, three rebounds and an assist while logging 23 minutes of game action in a 97-95 defeat.
Analysis: Moore was able to score in double figures for the first time since returning to the lineup back on Jan. 14. However the 23-year-old continues to struggle from the floor, as he is shooting 41.9 percent from the field over his last five contests. He continues to serve as Jameer Nelson's primary backup, which usually limits his minutes to around the 15-20 minute range, so consider him a low-end option in deeper Fantasy formats for now.
News: Magic guard E'Twaun Moore was once again not much of a factor during Tuesday's contest against the Pistons. Moore finished with nine points in the 105-90 defeat on 4 of 7 shooting from the field. He made one of his two attempts from behind the arc and also added five rebounds, two assists and one steal to his stat line, while logging 20 minutes of game action.
Analysis: Moore has failed to score in double figures since his return to the lineup back on Jan. 14, but is nothing new for the 23-year-old. He continues to serve as Jameer Nelson's primary backup, which usually limits his minutes to around the 15-20 minute range. While Nelson's injury history makes Moore a player worth holding onto, he should not be starting in many formats under his current role with the team.
News: Magic guard E'Twaun Moore (elbow) was able to get back on the court for Monday's contest against the Wizards. Moore had missed the team's last seven games while nursing a sprained left elbow. He played 16 minutes in his return and went 1 of 5 from the field to score five points. He grabbed one rebound and added one turnover.
Analysis: Moore is back to serving as Jameer Nelson's backup, which normally limits his minutes to around the 15-20 range most nights. However, Nelson's injury troubles have also given Moore a chance to start a few times, which is part of the reason he is averaging a career-best 8.9 points, 2.8 assists and 2.3 rebounds per game entering Monday. While Nelson's injury history makes Moore worth holding onto, owners should consider the 23-year-old merely a handcuff option in the meantime.
News: Magic guard E'Twaun Moore was ruled out yet again Saturday afternoon against the Clippers as he continues to nurse a sprained left elbow. He has missed his last seven games with his injury.
Analysis: Moore backs up starting point guard Jameer Nelson for the Magic. He sees elevated Fantasy value when Nelson is hurt, but Moore has marginal Fantasy appeal when Nelson is healthy. He is averaging a career-high 8.9 points, 2.8 assists and 2.3 rebounds per game in 2012-13, so consider him a low-end option in deeper formats, when healthy.
News:The Orlando Sentinel reports Magic guard E'Twaun Moore (elbow) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game at Denver. He was scratched for a sixth straight game Wednesday.
Analysis: Moore backs up starting point guard Jameer Nelson for the Magic. He sees elevated Fantasy value when Nelson is hurt, but Moore has marginal Fantasy appeal when Nelson is healthy. He is averaging a career-high 8.9 points, 2.8 assists and 2.3 rebounds per game in 2012-13, but it's clearly nothing to write home about.
News: Magic guard E'Twaun Moore, who is dealing with an elbow injury, could be available to play Wednesday at Denver, but is more likely to make his return Saturday night on the road against the Clippers, according to the team's official website.
Analysis: Moore has missed his last six games with the injury and has told reporters earlier in the week that his sprained left elbow is improving. He is making progress and seems like he could be back as early as Saturday, so we'll continue to keep an eye on his status moving forward. His production has plummeted since a hot start and failed to surpass two assists over the past five games. Moore has been able to maintain a decent scoring clip (6.7 ppg in December), but should be considered a low-end option in deeper Fantasy formats, when healthy.
News: Magic guard E'Twaun Moore was ruled out for Monday's game at Portland due to an elbow injury, the Orlando Sentinel reports. Moore, who has missed the past six games, said his sprained left elbow is improving and accompanied the team on its three-game road trip to the West Coast. He will not play until at least Saturday but is more likely to return next Monday at Washington.
Analysis: It appears Moore could return to the lineup during the Magic's road swing as he likely would have stayed in Orlando for treatment otherwise. His production has plummeted since a hot start and failed to surpass two assists over the past five games. Moore has been able to maintain a decent scoring clip (6.7 ppg in December), but should be considered a low-end option in deeper Fantasy formats when healthy.
News: Magic guard E'Twaun Moore was unable to practice Friday and has been ruled out of Saturday's contest against the Knicks, according to the Orlando Sentinel. He will miss his fifth consecutive game with a sprained left elbow.
Analysis: Moore will likely need to hit the practice court at some point before he returns to the lineup. The fact that he failed to practice Friday is obviously still not a good sign, so we'll keep an eye on his elbow injury moving forward. He averaged just 8.9 points on 44.0 percent shooting from the field before getting hurt and has low-end Fantasy value, even if healthy.
News: Orlando guard E'Twaun Moore was unable to play Wednesday against Chicago. Moore is dealing with a sprained left elbow and could miss more time going forward, though X-rays came back negative.
Analysis: Moore played three minutes on Friday before getting injured and has now missed the last three games. Moore is a solid bench contributor for the Magic, but has low-end Fantasy value at this time, healthy or not.
News: Orlando guard E'Twaun Moore (elbow) could not suit up for Monday's game against the Heat. Moore is dealing with a sprained left elbow and could miss more time going forward, though X-rays came back negative.
Analysis: Moore played three minutes on Friday before getting injured and has now missed the last two games. Moore is a solid bench contributor for the Magic, but has low-end Fantasy value at this time, healthy or not.
News: Magic guard E'Twaun Moore was ruled out of Saturday's contest at home against the Raptors as he continues to deal with a sprained left elbow. Moore was forced out of Friday's contest at Washington in the second quarter with the injury. According to the Orlando Sentinel, Moore is expected to miss about a week. "I definitely don't like being injured, especially once you get into a flow or a rhythm," Moore said. "I hate to be out."
Analysis: X-rays came back negative and revealed no fracture after suffering the injury last night which is great news for the Magic, especially since it appears as if Jameer Nelson may be dealing with a hip injury. We'll continue to keep tabs on his status in the coming days. He is averaging 9.3 points, 2.9 assists and 2.4 rebounds per game. Consider him as a low-end option in deeper formats, when healthy.
News: Magic guard E'Twaun Moore was forced out of Friday's contest at Washington in the second quarter after suffering a sprained left elbow. Moore was sent back to the locker room and did not return to the game. X-rays came back negative and revealed no fracture, according to the Orlando Sentinel. He will be re-evaluated back in Orlando Saturday. "I just sprained my elbow, the ligament inside. So it shouldn't be too bad," Moore said.
Analysis: That is awfully good news for the Magic, especially since his injury may have appeared to be serious at first. Fortunately, he is not dealing with a fracture and will likely have to sit out Saturday's contest against the Raptors with the injury. We'll continue to keep tabs on his status in the coming days. He is averaging 9.3 points, 2.9 assists and 2.4 rebounds per game. Consider him as a low-end option in deeper formats, when healthy.
News: Orlando guard E'Twaun Moore had a very solid game Wednesday night as he helped the Magic earn a home win over Washington. Moore went 3 for 5 from 3-point range and 6 of 10 overall from the field over 20 minutes to score 15 points. He chipped in with two steals, two assists and one rebound in the game.
Analysis: The 23-year-old Moore hits over a 3-pointer per game and has clearly displayed the ability to score. That said, most of what else he does has been mediocre, at best, and he's not seeing enough minutes to be a consistent Fantasy option. Moore is an attractive option only in the deepest of Fantasy leagues.
News: Magic guard E'Twaun Moore enjoyed a decent game off the bench and was able to score in double figures for the second game in a row during Wednesday's contest against the Hawks. Moore stepped up off the bench and scored 11 points and dished out four assists in an 86-80 defeat. He went 4 of 7 shooting from the field, including 1 of 3 from beyond the arc, and knocked down both of his free throw attempts on the night. He also chipped in with a rebound, block and a steal in 22 minutes of game action.
Analysis: Moore has been stuck in bench Aaron Afflalo and Jameer Nelson in the lineup, but has been able to stay productive as of late, shooting 53.3 percent from the field and scoring 21 points in his last two games. He is averaging 9.2 points, three assists and 2.5 rebounds per game this season. Fantasy owners should continue to leave the 23-year-old out of Purdue for the deepest of formats.
News: Magic guard E'Twaun Moore was placed in the starting lineup and took advantage with a decent performance against the Nets Friday night. Moore started in Jameer nelson's place, who sat out with a sore left Achilles, and finished with 13 points in a 98-86 defeat. He went 6 of 10 shooting from the field, including 1 of 3 from downtown, and failed to get to the charity stripe. He also chipped in with four rebounds and four assists in 31 minutes of game action.
Analysis: Moore has fared well as a starter but unfortunately only sees starter's minutes when Nelson is sidelined with an injury. Once Nelson returns from his sore left Achilles, then he'll be back in the bench. We'll continue to monitor Nelson's injury status moving forward. Moore could see his Fantasy value rise a bit if Nelson misses some games. For now he should be left for the deepest of Fantasy formats.
News: Orlando guard E'Twaun Moore came off the bench for the seventh straight game Wednesday against the San Antonio. He scored 11 points on 5-of-13 shooting in the 110-89 loss. He missed all three of his attempts from beyond the arc and made 1 of 2 free throws while playing 22 minutes. Moore also posted three rebounds and an assist while turning the ball over twice.
Analysis: Moore averaged 13.3 points and 4.5 assists as a starter with Jameer Nelson out but has not been as productive off the bench. He is averaging 7.4 points with 2.2 rebounds and two assists while seeing around 20 minutes off the bench in the previous five contests. The 23-year-old has Fantasy value as a starter but leave him for the deepest of formats at this point.
News: With Jameer Nelson back in the starting lineup, Magic guard E'Twaun Moore came off the bench in a more limited role against the Pistons Friday night. Moore was held to just six points, all of which came in the first half, in a 110-106 victory. Moore shot 3 of 6 from the field and missed his only three-point attempt. He also chipped in with four assists and a rebound in 18 minutes off the bench.
Analysis: Moore played well in Nelson's place but will likely come off the bench now as the season progresses. That said, he did earn some solid minutes off the bench for the Magic on Friday, which could be a positive sign for Fantasy owners who picked him up this week. With Nelson back in the starting lineup, Moore should be viewed as a decent option in deeper formats moving forward.
News: Magic guard E'Twaun Moore earned his fourth straight start during Orlando's contest against the Nets Friday night. Moore, who is starting in place of the injured Jameer Nelson, dropped in a career-high 18 points in the 107-68 defeat, on 7 of 15 shooting from the field. He went 4 for 6 from downtown and also added five assists and four rebounds to his total while logging 40 minutes of game action. However, he also committed a season-high six turnovers.
Analysis: Moore has done well in his four-game run as a starter but it appears his time running the show may be coming to an end. Nelson is reportedly almost ready to get back on the court and barring any setbacks, will likely be running the point by the time Fantasy Week 3 (Nov. 12-18) rolls around. Obviously, once Nelson returns, Moore's playing time and production will drop off but his strong play could earn him a few extra minutes here and there. However, he will only be worth starting in deeper formats once that happens.
News: Magic guard E'Twaun Moore recorded 15 points and six assists during Orlando's 115-94 win over Phoenix on Sunday. With Jameer Nelson sidelined with a lingering knee issue, Moore made his first career start and logged 38 minutes of playing time. He continues to shoot well from the field during the early part of the season, especially along the perimeter, and knocked down 6 of his 11 shots, including all three 3-point attempts.
Analysis: It's only been two games, but Moore has displayed strides early in his second season. He has posted double-digits in points during both games -- 28 points total -- while dishing out nine assists. Moore produced only one game last season with more than 10 points. The 23-year-old could keep his spot in the starting lineup during the early part of Fantasy Week 2 (Nov. 5-11) as Nelson was scheduled to visit a doctor for evaluation. If you're in need to guard play in deeper formats, Moore could be viewed as decent fill-in for at least a couple games.
News: Magic guard E'Twaun Moore played well in a reserve role Friday night in a win over the Nuggets in the season opener. Moore shot 6 of 10 from the field over 25 minutes to score 13 points for the Magic. He added five rebounds, three assists and hit a 3-pointer behind Jameer Nelson.
Analysis: Moore will back up Nelson this season and looks like he could be a nice bench option for the Magic. We doubt he'll continue shooting as well as he did Friday, but if he does, he should start seeing more looks in deeper Fantasy formats.
News: The Rockets acquired guard ETwaun Moore from the Celtics Friday in a sign-and-trade that landed Courtney Lee in Boston. Various media outlets have reported that the Rockets are expected to waive Moore, the Celtics second-round pick in the 2011 NBA Draft.
Analysis: Moore appeared in 38 games for the Celtics as a rookie, averaging 2.9 points per game in them. He was a solid scorer in college, flashing range out to the three-point line, so he may catch on with another team moving forward. Still, he has no track record at the major-league level, and should not be considered a viable Fantasy option in any formats.
News: Celtics rookie guard E'Twaun Moore was finally able to get on the court during Sunday night's contest against the Pistons. Moore, who has been stuck on the bench over the past week, finished with two points in the 96-81 defeat, on 1 of 3 shooting from the field. He also hauled in two rebounds, while logging four minutes off the bench.
Analysis: Moore got some nice run when Rajon Rondo and Keyon Dooling were both hurt, but since both have returned the rookie has had a hard time getting on the court. While the Celtics remain very high on the 22-year-old, clearly he is not a big part of their rotation right now. Only owners in long-term keeper formats should continue to stash more at this point in the season.
News: Boston guard E'Twaun Moore saw 11 minutes of playing time in Tuesday's 93-90 win over Cleveland. Moore hit two of his three shots to score five points in the game. One of his baskets was a 3-pointer in his only attempt from deep. Moore did not have any other discernible statistics in the game.
Analysis: Moore scored 16 points on Jan. 26 at Orlando over 18 minutes, but has totaled just 13 points in three games since. Moore is not a major part of the rotation for the Celtics and only has low-end Fantasy value at this time.
News: Boston guard E'Twaun Moore scored a career-high 16 points on Thursday night in Orlando, helping his team rally from a huge halftime deficit. Moore hit all four of his 3-pointers and missed just one shot from the field in his 18 minutes of action. With Rajon Rondo and Keyon Dooling both banged up Moore has been getting more run recently, but never produced like this before. He added three rebounds and a block as the Celtics rallied to win the game, 91-83.
Analysis: Moore, who was the 55th overall pick in last year's draft, may be in line for more minutes the rest of the season with this outing. The Celtics need to find the right mix of players, and Moore definitely had the right touch on Thursday. Right now, Moore is still more of a long-term keeper option, but if he carves out minutes down the road he could garner some attention in deeper category-based Fantasy leagues.
News: The Celtics signed rookie guard E'Twaun Moore to a guaranteed contract on Friday. Moore, who was the 55th overall pick in last year's draft, averaged 18 points a game as a senior at Purdue.
Analysis: Moore was taken late in the second round by the Celtics, so the fact that he earned guaranteed money seems to suggest Boston has big plans for the rookie. Fantasy owners should keep an eye on how he fares in training camp over the next few weeks. At the very least, Moore looks worthy of drafting in most long-term keeper formats. However, if he can work himself into the rotation, owners may want to spend a late-round pick taking a shot on the 22-year-old.
News: The Celtics thoroughly scouted players throughout the country and ended up acquiring two from the same school on Thursday night. They chose two senior stars from Purdue - 6-foot-10 forward JaJuan Johnson and 6-foot-4 guard E'Twaun Moore - as they continued building toward the day when the Big Three that brought an NBA title in 2008 is gone. It was merely a "coincidence" that the Celtics took two players from one college, GM Danny Ainge said. "They were the best guys on the board for us when we drafted." Moore averaged 18 points a game as a senior and 15.3 in his career. Moore was drafted in Round 2 at No. 55 overall.
Analysis: Moore will be a reserve option for the Celtics and could help eventually replace Ray Allen. But he will have to make the final squad first and prove he deserves playing time. Keep an eye on his development, but Moore should not be drafted in the majority of standard leagues. He is also not worth drafting in most dynasty/keeper formats or rookie-only leagues.
