Afflalo had two points (1-1 FG) in seven minutes during Wednesday's 101-99 win over the Grizzlies.

EDGE Analysis

Afflalo has appeared in four of eight games thus far, and he is yet to surpass two points in any of them. To date, he has just six points, three assists, two rebounds, and one block in 33 minutes in 2017-18, as he's buried at the bottom of a deep wing rotation.

Afflalo (back) returned to practice Tuesday, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Afflalo missed Monday's preseason opener with stiffness in his lower back, but as expected, it wasn't anything overly serious and he's since returned to practice. Barring any setbacks over the next few days, Afflalo should be set to make his preseason debut on Thursday against the Mavericks. That said, Afflalo will be stuck in a reserve role during the upcoming campaign, keeping his value limited in the majority of fantasy formats.

Afflalo is dealing with a back injury and has been ruled out for Monday's preseason opener against the Grizzlies, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Frank Vogel said he expected Afflalo to return to practice on Tuesday, so it's clearly not a serious injury. If all goes well during Tuesday's session, he should be good to make his preseason debut on Thursday against the Mavericks.

Afflalo signed a one-year deal with the Magic on Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran guard was released by the Kings in June, just days before his contract would have become guaranteed for the upcoming season. The 31-year-old will likely sign with Orlando at close to the minimum, though the figures are yet to be released. The Magic will be Afflalo's fifth team in as many seasons, and it will be his second stint with the organization, where he also played from 2012-14. Afflalo was an unquestioned starter at that point in his career, but he'll likely come off the bench for Frank Vogel next season, and he'll compete with the likes of Evan Fournier, Jonathon Simmons, Terrence Ross and Mario Hezonja for backcourt minutes. Last season, Afflalo appeared in 61 games for Sacramento and shot 44 percent from the field and 41.1 percent from three.

Afflalo was released by the Kings on Friday, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.

EDGE Analysis

Afflalo's release comes ahead of Friday's deadline for a contract guarantee. After signing a two-year, $25 million deal with the Kings last summer, Afflalo went on to average just 8.4 points and 2.0 rebounds while shooting 41 percent from three this past season, leaving Sacramento in search of cheaper alternatives. At 31 years old, the veteran will now hit the free agent market going into his eleventh season.

Afflalo started at small forward and registered 18 points (8-11 FG, 2-2 FT), six assists and two rebounds across 34 minutes in a 115-95 loss to the Clippers on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

It was a strong finish to a rather tumultuous season for Afflalo, who received such a sizable workload due to the Kings only keeping seven players active Wednesday. Though Afflalo ended up sitting out the majority of the Kings' games over the final month of the season, he's one of the few wing options expected to return to the team in 2017-18 as he enters the second year of the two-year, $25 million pact he inked with Sacramento last summer. The rebuilding Kings don't appear to view Afflalo as a key part of their core, however, so it wouldn't be surprising if the team looked to move his contract at some point next season. The 31-year-old is best suited for a bench role at this stage of his career after averaging 8.4 points (on 44% shooting from the field), 2.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.0 three-pointer in 25.9 minutes per game over 61 appearances this season.

Afflalo is in the starting lineup in place of Ben McLemore for the team's regular-season finale against the Clippers on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Afflalo sat out each of the club's last two games for rest purposes, but it appears the veteran will give it another go for just the third time in the last 10 games. He generally averages in the low-to-mid 20's for minutes and that can likely be expected for this tilt as well.

Afflalo will not play in Tuesday's game against the Suns for rest purposes, James Ham of CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Afflalo has been resting periodically though the final stretch of the regular season and will now sit out his second straight contest. Garrett Temple, Buddy Hield and Ben McLemore are all expected to split time on the wing yet again with Tyreke Evans also resting Tuesday.

Afflalo will sit out Sunday's game against the Rockets for rest, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Kings continue to rest their veterans down the final stretch of the season, with Afflalo being joined on the sidelines by the likes of Kosta Koufos, Darren Collison and Tyreke Evans. Without Afflalo or Evans on the wing, look for Buddy Hield, Garrett Temple and Ben McLemore to share the extra minutes.

Afflalo will start at small forward for Friday's game against the Lakers.

EDGE Analysis

Afflalo has missed for of the previous five games for rest, personal reasons, and most recently, a lower back strain. However, he was considered probable heading into the evening, so it is not surprising that he is playing. It was unclear if he would start though, as Tyreke Evans had been doing a serviceable job. Afflalo will indeed replace Evans Friday, but expect the team to continue shuffling around their starters as the season winds down.
