Tobias Harris F ORL 5 Days
Tobias Harris got hot early vs. the Sixers and wound up with a career-high 31 points on 11-of-20 FGs and 9-of-9 FTs, with eight rebounds, three steals and only one turnover.
It's not unusual to see players go off vs. the Sixers, of course, but Harris has been heating up lately and this marks the fourth time in six games that he's scored 20+ points. Arron Afflalo's probable return on Wednesday may cut into his touches but Harris remains a solid fantasy option, notwithstanding Orlando's two-game week.

Tobias Harris matched his season-high 28 points against the Raptors on Sunday during a 105-90 loss, adding six boards, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.
It's looking like Tobias time for the Magic again after his 22-point, eight-board game on Friday night. The departure of Glen Davis opens up plenty of minutes for him with only Kyle O'Quinn able to back him up. Harris probably won't be quite as good as last year because of Victor Oladipo likely to be a key piece of the offensive equation, but his his patient owners have to feel great right now.

Tobias Harris hit 6-of-14 shots and two 3-pointers for 19 points, seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block in Wednesday's loss.
Glen Davis went down with an Achilles injury tonight, which should easily work in Harris' favor going forward. Harris hasn't been too reliable this season, but he played very well tonight and could get a big boost if Davis is temporarily removed from the crowded front court in Orlando.

Tobias Harris started over Victor Oladipo on Tuesday and had 16 points, nine rebounds, a block and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes.
While this wasn't a monster line for Harris, it was a pretty good one. He's been very inconsistent this season and remains a borderline fantasy starter in some leagues, but was due for a big game against his former team (Bucks).

Tobias Harris will start at SF vs. the Bucks on Tuesday, sending Victor Oladipo to the bench.
This is nothing new for the Magic, though Oladipo's owners surely wish he'd stick in the starting lineup where he's averaging slightly more points, rebounds, assists and steals.

Tobias Harris had a dunk at the buzzer to give the Magic a surprising 103-102 win over the Thunder on Friday, scoring 18 points with five boards, two assists, one block and two steals in 34 minutes.
It wasn't his best game on the stat sheet this season, but his impact during this game was one of his best. It's not often a player can keep Kevin Durant in check -- even if it's in a small capacity -- and turn it up on offense. Harris has done nothing but earn his playing time since his ankle injury from earlier in the season and he should be able to put up nice value even when he's coming off the bench.

Tobias Harris will start out guarding Kevin Durant on Friday night.
Presumably, the Magic are going with the same lineup as Wednesday: Jameer Nelson, Arron Afflalo, Harris, Glen Davis and Nikola Vucevic. Harris was a bit of a let down in 19 minutes due to some early foul trouble on Wednesday, so he should have some better luck tonight.

Tobias Harris started, but played just 19 minutes on Wednesday, finishing with nine points and four rebounds after getting into early foul trouble.
The foul trouble, combined with the strong play of Moe Harkless off the bench, ruined Harris tonight, but the good news is that he wasn't injured. We expect him to return to form on Friday vs. OKC.
