  • Magic's Caleb Houstan: Doesn't do much in start Wednesday

    Houstan ended with six points (2-3 FG, 2-2 3Pt) in 25 minutes during Wednesday's 118-100 victory over the Knicks.

    Houstan was inserted into the starting lineup Wednesday with Markelle Fultz (rest), Jalen Suggs (groin) and Gary Harris (calf) all sidelined. Houstan's 25 minutes played were his most since Jan. 22 against the Cavaliers, but that didn't translate into more opportunities on the offensive end of the floor, though he was efficient with his shots. He figures to return to his bench role following the All-Star break.

  • Magic's Caleb Houstan: Moves into starting lineup

    Houstan will start Wednesday's game against the Knicks, Wendell Epps of Bally Sports Florida reports.

    With Markelle Fultz (rest), Jalen Suggs (groin) and Gary Harris (calf) all out, Houstan and Anthony Black will move into the starting lineup, while Cole Anthony and Joe Ingles figure to see elevated roles off the bench. As a starter this season (seven games), Houstan has averaged 9.4 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 26.7 minutes, but that includes a 25-point outing (Jan. 7 versus Atlanta) and a scoreless performance (Jan. 19 versus Philadelphia).

  • Magic's Caleb Houstan: Returns to bench

    Houstan won't start Sunday's game against the Heat, Jason Beede of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

    With Markelle Fultz, Franz Wagner and Wendell Carter returning to the starting lineup, Houstan, Chuma Okeke and Goga Bitadze will all head back to the bench. Across 26 appearances as a reserve, Houstan has averaged 4.1 points and 1.6 rebounds in 13.2 minutes per game.

  • Magic's Caleb Houstan: Scores 14 points in loss

    Houstan contributed 14 points (5-13 FG, 4-12 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists and one steal across 35 minutes during Saturday's 112-100 loss to the Thunder.

    Houstan started a fourth consecutive game and reached double-digit points for the second time in that span, though fantasy managers need to temper the expectations with him. Houstan is only seeing minutes because of Orlando's overall lack of depth due to injuries, and he's been held to single digits in two of his four starts, suggesting he's not going to have a prominent role on offense even with expanded minutes.

  • Magic's Caleb Houstan: Impressive against Atlanta

    Houstan totaled 25 points (8-15 FG, 7-14 3Pt, 2-3 FT), two rebounds, four assists and one steal over 36 minutes during Sunday's 117-110 overtime win over the Hawks.

    Houstan made a substantial impact in his first start of the season, exploding for a season-high 25 points and looking quite comfortable while logging heavy minutes with the first unit. Houstan might see an uptick in his fantasy value as long as he remains in the starting lineup, though that's only happening due to the absences of Franz Wagner (ankle) and Gary Harris (calf). His long-term projection continues to be a bench role.

  • Magic's Caleb Houstan: Moves into starting lineup

    Houstan will start Sunday's game against the Hawks.

    With Franz Wagner (ankle) out and Anthony Black nursing an illness, Houstan will make his first start of the season. Houstan has played at least 20 minutes six times this year, averaging 7.0 points and 2.8 rebounds across those contests.

  • Magic's Caleb Houstan: Strong from deep in loss

    Houstan notched 15 points (4-6 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two rebounds, one assist and four steals in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 138-135 double-overtime loss to Sacramento.

    Houstan led all Magic bench players in threes made and scoring while logging a team-high steals mark and tallying a season-high point total in a double-overtime defeat. Houstan had his first double-digit scoring performance of the year, and he previously notched at least eight points off the bench in four contests for Orlando.

  • Magic's Caleb Houstan: Falling out of rotation

    Houstan totaled six points (2-3 FG, 2-3 3Pt) and one rebound over eight minutes during Tuesday's 121-115 loss to the Warriors.

    From Nov. 26 through Dec. 29, Houstan played in 13 of Orlando's 15 contests and saw double-digit minutes in each appearance, averaging 4.5 points and 2.3 rebounds in 16.5 minutes per game. However, he totaled just 15 minutes over the last two games and will fall even farther down the depth chart when Joe Ingles (ankle) and Jonathan Isaac (hamstring) return to action.

  • Magic's Caleb Houstan: Scores nine points in win

    Houstan finished with nine points (3-3 FG, 3-3 3Pt), three rebounds and one assist in 10 minutes during Wednesday's 139-120 victory over the Wizards.

    Houstan logged at least nine minutes for the third straight game, scoring a season-high nine points. While he has been featured in the rotation over the past week, his production has left a little to be desired. At this point, there is no need to consider him outside of the deepest leagues.

  • Magic's Caleb Houstan: Cleared to return

    Houstan (knee) is active for Tuesday's preseason contest against the Pelicans, Philip Rossman-Reich of OrlandoMagicDaily.com reports.

    Houstan was sidelined for Thursday's preseason game against Cleveland due to a right ankle sprain. Orlando's frontcourt is fully healthy for Tuesday's preseason affair, so Houstan's role should resemble his regular-season expectations.

  • Magic's Caleb Houstan: Won't play Thursday

    Houstan has been ruled out for Thursday's preseason game against the Cavaliers due to a right ankle sprain, Dan Savage of the Magic's official site reports.

    Houstan didn't play in Tuesday's preseason opener against New Orleans and is apparently dealing with a sprained right ankle. It's not yet clear when he'll be able to return, but his next chance to suit up will be Oct. 17 against New Orleans.

  • Magic's Caleb Houstan: Starting in season finale

    Houstan is in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Heat, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Houstan started against the Cavaliers on Thursday and scored eight points, and while he moved back to a bench role Friday against the Nets, he still logged 26 minutes. Houstan is averaging 7.3 points and 4.7 rebounds per contest in his previous three starts. The Magic will be without Paolo Banchero (back) for the third straight game to end the season.

  • Magic's Caleb Houstan: Returns to bench role

    Houstan will not start Friday's game versus the Nets.

    Houstan received a spot start Thursday versus the Cavaliers but will return to a bench role Friday with Markelle Fultz (knee) and Franz Wagner (ankle) rejoining the action. After playing 30 minutes Thursday, expect Houstan's workload to decline given that he's back in his reserve role, though there still are some players sitting out for Orlando.

  • Magic's Caleb Houstan: Will start Thursday

    Houstan will start Thursday's game against the Cavaliers, Philip Rossman-Reich of OrlandoMagicDaily.com reports.

    The Magic are resting their entire starting lineup, so Houstan will be joined by Jalen Suggs, Chuma Okeke, Bol Bol and Moritz Wagner in the first five for Orlando's final home game of the campaign. Houstan has made just two other starts this season, totaling 14 points, 12 rebounds, two assists and two steals in 59 minutes during those contests.

  • Magic's Caleb Houstan: Nothing to see in nine minutes

    Houstan had zero points (0-3 FG, 0-3 3Pt) in nine minutes during Tuesday's 113-108 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Houstan failed to record a single stat in the loss, continuing what has been an unproductive stretch. Despite having played in six consecutive games, he has scored a grand total of eight points, all coming in one game against the Knicks. Based on what we have seen to this point, Houstan is a long way off from being relevant in fantasy.

  • Magic's Caleb Houstan: Moves up to NBA

    Orlando recalled Houstan from the G League's Lakeland Magic on Tuesday.

    The addition of Houstan ahead of Tuesday's game in San Antonio will afford the Magic some extra depth at forward in the event Franz Wagner (ankle) -- who is listed as questionable -- is unable to play. Even if Wagner is ruled out for the contest, Houstan may still find himself behind Paolo Banchero, Gary Harris and Bol Bol in the pecking order for playing time at either forward spot.

  • Magic's Caleb Houstan: Hits five three-pointers Sunday

    Houstan recorded 17 points (6-11 FG, 5-10 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists and one block across 28 minutes during Sunday's 119-95 win over the Go-Go.

    Houstan has bounced back and forth between the NBA and the G League several times over the last two months, but he ultimately came off the bench for Lakeland on Sunday and knocked down a game-high five shots from beyond the arc. The 20-year-old guard is currently averaging 16.2 points and 5.2 rebounds per game across 11 appearances with the G League Magic.

  • Magic's Caleb Houstan: Assigned to Lakeland

    The Magic assigned Houstan to the G League's Lakeland on Sunday.

    Houstan has played more than 20 minutes just twice since the start of January and doesn't have a clear role in the Magic's rotation, so as things stand now, it seems the best thing for him is to continue progressing and developing at the G League level rather than seeing limited minutes with Orlando.

  • Magic's Caleb Houstan: Called up from G League

    The Magic recalled Houstan from the G League's Lakeland on Sunday.

    Houstan isn't guaranteed to slot into head coach Jamahl Mosley's rotation, but at the very least, he can provide another option off the bench. He's made 36 appearances for the Magic this season, including two starts, and he's averaging 4.1 points with 2.1 rebounds across 15.6 minutes per game in that span.
