Jason Maxiell PF/C ORL 20 Days

The Magic have waived veteran forward Jason Maxiell.

His contract, worth $2.5 million, was set to become guaranteed on July 10, so this was an expected move. Maxiell has career averages of 5.9 points, and 4.3 rebounds in 18.9 minutes per game; he is not a fantasy option in any format.

Jason Maxiell (personal) is not with the team and will not play on Sunday.

He has been out of the lineup since Jan. 28 and has only played in two games since Jan. 15. The Magic won't be missing Maxiell at all with Nikola Vucevic back and healthy.

Jason Maxiell started at center in place of Nikola Vucevic (sprained ankle) and had six points, six rebounds, two steals and three blocks in 43 minutes.

You would have thought he could have done a little more with all those minutes, but the steals and blocks were nice. Maxiell hasn't been doing much at all this season and should return to obscurity once Vucevic is back, which should be soon.

Jason Maxiell played 19 minutes against the Warriors on Tuesday with eight points, three boards, one steal and three fouls.

He could be in line for some more minutes with Nikola Vucevic injuring his left ankle for the second time this month. Maxiell started the second half and wind up as starter should Vucevic miss time, or the Magic could go back to a smaller lineup. Still, he's not worth owning in almost any league due to a low upside.

Jason Maxiell was a DNP-CD on Sunday for the first time in December.

Orlando's frontcourt rotation is too crowded for Maxiell to carve out a role. Even if injuries strike, Max's averages in 11 starts this season should ward off fantasy owners -- 6.2 points, 3.4 rebounds and 0.6 blocks.

Jason Maxiell didn't score in 26 minutes on Tuesday night at Indiana, missing all five of his field goal attempts with five boards, one steal and two blocks.

He and the rest of the team were blocked 18 times tonight and couldn't get many good looks in the paint. Maxiell got the start at power forward tonight, but he's not worth adding in almost any league.

Jason Maxiell will start at PF for the Magic on Tuesday, with Tobias Harris (ankle) and Glen Davis (foot) both unavailable.

Harris is day-to-day so Maxiell's time as a starter will be short-lived. Anyone trying to gauge his upside should consider his muted averages in 71 starts with Detroit last year -- 7.0 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 25 minutes per game.

Jason Maxiell had 16 points, six rebounds, a steal and a block on 6-of-13 shooting in a start for the Magic in Tuesday's preseason loss to the Spurs.

With projected starters Tobias Harris and Nikola Vucevic both sitting this one out, Maxiell got a chance to show his stuff. He might get some minutes in the rotation until Glen Davis returns, but for now, it's hard to see this not being one of his best lines of the entire season.

Jason Maxiell will rest on Monday night.

He sounds like he's fine and should be ready to go for the season. The Magic have a lot of youth, so Maxiell is one of the oldest players in their frontcourt. He'll serve as emergency depth.
