O'Quinn scores 20 points with seven boards | 04/14/2014 11:02 PM
NewsKyle O'Quinn scored 20 points on 9-of-11 shooting with seven rebounds and one block in Monday's loss to the Bulls.
ImpactO'Quinn has been great for the last two months and should be in all lineups. Victor Oladipo continued to play limited minutes (23) with 10 points, three rebounds, four assists, a steal and a three, and Dewayne Dedmon supplied some big-man stats with six points, nine boards and two blocks in 28 minutes.
Kyle O'Quinn keeps putting up nice numbers | 04/11/2014 10:16 PM
NewsKyle O'Quinn played well in his 25 minutes of action on Friday during a 96-86 loss to the Wizards, scoring 13 points with nine boards, one assist and three blocks.
ImpactHe shot 6-of-9 from the field, but just 1-of-4 from the line. O'Quinn has been solid since Nikola Vuecvic went down and he's hit double-figure scoring in each of those four. He's a solid option in fantasy leagues thanks to 17 blocks in his last five games.
Kyle O'Quinn goes scoreless in 15 minutes | 03/30/2014 8:34 PM
NewsMagic big man Kyle O'Quinn struggled in a scoreless performance on Sunday, missing his two shot attempts while grabbing three rebounds in 15 minutes.
ImpactO'Quinn's offense is a secondary concern for the Magic, and he's still been helping fantasy owners with 7.7 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 1.8 blocks per game in March. Dewayne Dedmon played well in 15 minutes off the bench tonight and it's worth keeping an eye on Orlando's frontcourt rotations, but O'Quinn should maintain his 20-25 minute role for the final eight games of the season.
Kyle O'Quinn to start again vs. Bobcats Fri | 03/28/2014 10:50 AM
NewsKyle O'Quinn will start at PF for the Magic when they take on the Bobcats Friday.
Josh Robbins on Twitter
ImpactThis will be O'Quinn's 10th consecutive start at PF and while the results have been unspectacular, the 24-year-old can provide some fantasy value as a starter. O'Quinn is averaging 8.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 1.9 blocks in 22.5 minutes per game over his last 10 contests and should be looked at as a solid start with a low ceiling in medium-to-deep leagues.
Kyle O'Quinn playing well in starting unit | 03/12/2014 9:55 PM
NewsKyle O'Quinn received his third start in a row on Wednesday with 10 points, eight boards, one assist and two blocks in 27 minutes.
ImpactIt's not a line that will be the lede of your fantasy team's recap, but O'Quinn shot 5-of-8 from the field and has been very solid since Glen Davis has departed. He's a solid low-upside player in standard leagues and his 1.5 blocks per game over his previous 11 could be on the rise, as well.
Kyle O'Quinn, Maurice Harkless starting again | 03/12/2014 5:28 PM
NewsKyle O'Quinn and Moe Harkless are starting against the Nuggets on Wednesday.
John Denton on Twitter
ImpactThe pair will join Jameer Nelson, Arron Afflalo and Nikola Vucevic in the starting lineup against the Nuggets. Victor Oladipo is healthy, but going with a bigger lineup makes sense against the weak interior defense of the Nuggets. O'Quinn is a decent play for those seeking big-man stats. while Harkless could be a hit-or-miss guy.
O'Quinn does his thing in 20 minutes vs. MIL | 03/11/2014 12:42 AM
NewsKyle O'Quinn started for the second straight game in Monday's loss to the Bucks, scoring 10 points on 5-of-8 shooting with seven rebounds, one assist and two blocks over 20 minutes.
ImpactO'Quinn does some variation of this every night whether he's starting or coming off the bench and it all adds up to late-round value, meaning he should be owned in most if not all 12-team formats.
O'Quinn to start on Monday vs. Bucks | 03/10/2014 7:25 PM
NewsKyle O'Quinn will make his second straight start against the Bucks on Monday.
John Denton on Twitter
ImpactO'Quinn has been a late-round value for the past month despite his 20-25 minute workload on most nights and should be owned in most 12-team formats.
Kyle O'Quinn to start for Magic on Saturday | 03/08/2014 6:05 PM
NewsKyle O'Quinn will start alongside Nikola Vucevic on Saturday, as the Magic try to match up with the Spurs.
John Denton on Twitter
ImpactBeat writer John Denton reports that Tobias Harris will likely shift to the bench with Moe Harkless staying at SF. Keep in mind that Jameer Nelson (illness) is returning to action for Orlando, but Victor Oladipo (ankle) will once again be sidelined. O'Quinn is averaging 8.4 points, 8.8 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.2 steals in just 18 minutes per game over his last five, and he should provide solid plug-and-play value as a temporary starter.
Kyle O'Quinn hits 4-of-13 shots in loss | 03/05/2014 9:53 PM
NewsKyle O'Quinn hit just 4-of-13 shots for eight points, eight rebounds, a steal and three blocks in just 16 minutes on Wednesday.
ImpactHe made the most of his time tonight, but his line would have been much more exciting had his shot been working. He's worth owning in deeper leagues given his strong play off the bench over the last few weeks.
Kyle O'Quinn has big double-double in loss | 03/01/2014 10:26 PM
NewsKyle O'Quinn came off the bench for 14 points, a career-high 15 rebounds, two steals and a block on 6-of-10 shooting in Saturday's loss to the Heat.
ImpactO'Quinn has been seeing nice minutes off the bench and played one of his best games against the centerless Heat tonight. Not only were his 15 rebounds a career high, but this marks his first double-double of the season, and just the second time he's hit double figures in rebounding all year. If you had him in your lineup tonight, don't expect a repeat performance on Sunday, although anything is possible against the hapless Sixers.
Kyle O'Quinn blocks 4 shots despite fouls | 02/26/2014 9:44 PM
NewsKyle O'Quinn lasted just 14 minutes due to foul trouble (he had five of them), finishing with two points, four rebounds, one steal and four blocks on Wednesday.
ImpactThe four blocks salvaged his night and owners can take comfort in the foul trouble being the reason for the low minutes. He's not a must-own player, but is serving a purpose in deeper leagues on most nights.
Kyle O'Quinn just misses double-double | 02/25/2014 10:10 PM
NewsKyle O'Quinn came off the bench for 10 points, nine rebounds and a block on 4-of-6 shooting in 21 minutes on Tuesday.
ImpactHe's quietly been effective off the Magic bench and is worth a look in all leagues by owners in need of a back up center. Just don't expect a ton of scoring from the big man, although he has managed to score 10 points in three of his last four games.
Kyle O'Quinn gets up to 24 minutes vs. TOR | 02/23/2014 9:57 PM
NewsKyle O'Quinn played 24 minutes against the Raptors on Sunday with 10 points, five boards, four assists and one steal on 5-of-11 shooting.
ImpactHis four assists are tied for his third best total of his career and his career high just came on Tuesday night. O'Quinn is capable of playing at center and power forward, so he should be able to find a 20-25 minute role behind Tobias Harris and Nikola Vucevic. He's worth a look in deeper leagues.
Kyle O'Quinn scoreless, but effective | 02/19/2014 12:55 AM
NewsKyle O'Quinn failed to score on Tuesday, but had nine points, seven assists and two blocks in 21 minutes in a loss to the Bucks.
ImpactO'Quinn has been worth keeping an eye on all season, but as long as Nikola Vucevic and Glen Davis are healthy, there no reason to own him, despite tonight's interesting line.
Kyle O'Quinn has 11 rebounds off bench | 01/28/2014 10:31 PM
NewsKyle O'Quinn played 27 minutes and hit 2-of-7 shots for four points, 11 rebounds, four steals and zero blocks off the Magic bench on Tuesday.
ImpactHe's had some nice games in the absence of Nikola Vucevic, but that run should soon come to an end. Vucevic is traveling with the team and should be back in action in the near future, while KO has been too unreliable to start, even with Vucevic out.
O'Quinn posts low-end line off bench | 01/24/2014 10:39 PM
NewsKyle O'Quinn scored seven points on 3-of-8 shooting with six rebounds and two blocks in 26 minutes off the bench on Friday.
ImpactO'Quinn isn't doing much but he's worth a look in deep leagues while Nikola Vucevic is out.
Kyle O'Quinn finally cools off | 01/22/2014 10:52 PM
NewsKyle O'Quinn hit just 2-of-7 shots for five points and three rebounds in 21 minutes on Wednesday.
ImpactThe other shoe was due to fall for O'Quinn, who had scored in double digits in three of his previous four games, including a season-high 15 on Tuesday. We're guessing O'Quinn will return to obscurity on the bench as soon as Nikola Vucevic is back from his concussion.
Kyle O'Quinn leads Magic with 15 points | 01/21/2014 10:11 PM
NewsKyle O'Quinn led the Magic with a season-high 15 points, eight rebounds and two blocks on 6-of-10 shooting in 24 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's loss to the Nets.
ImpactO'Quinn has now scored in double figures in three of his last four games, averaging 11.3 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.3 blocks over that stretch while averaging 22 minutes per game. O'Quinn is hot right now and getting extra minutes with Nikola Vucevic out with a concussion, but it's hard to see this lasting too much longer. Glen Davis also got 24 minutes tonight and finished with 10 points and seven rebounds.
Kyle O'Quinn strong again w/ Vucevic out | 01/19/2014 8:53 PM
NewsMagic center Kyle O'Quinn had another strong game off the bench on Sunday, scoring 10 points with nine rebounds, one steal and one block vs. the Celtics.
ImpactHe posted those numbers in 24 minutes while navigating foul trouble, marking the fourth time in the past five games that he's played at least 17 minutes. He won't give you much beyond rebounding and shot-blocking, and Nikola Vucevic's eventual return from a concussion will scuttle his value, but for the moment deep-league owners need to give him attention.
Kyle O'Quinn plays a season-high 24 minutes | 01/16/2014 12:09 AM
NewsKyle O'Quinn played a season-high 24 minutes against the Bulls on Wednesday with 12 points, seven boards, one assist, three blocks and one steals.
ImpactHe was two points off his season high for scoring and set a season high in rebounds. O'Quinn played just four minutes on Monday, so we'll need to see this again before thinking about using him in even deep leagues.

Kyle O'Quinn (ankle) out Saturday vs. Miami | 11/22/2013 11:52 AM
NewsKyle O'Quinn (ankle) did not travel with the Raptors to Miami and will miss Saturday's game against the Heat.
Joshua Robbins on Twitter
ImpactO'Quinn has been playing 13.4 minutes per game this season, but has been unable to make much of a dent on the stat sheet with averages of just 5.3 points and 4.4 rebounds per game. The second-year player has been providing discerning owners with 1.1 blocks per game, but his absence can easily be made up for in the short-term.
Kyle O'Quinn out Saturday w/ ankle injury | 11/16/2013 5:37 PM
NewsMagic PF/C Kyle O'Quinn will not play on Saturday due to an ankle injury.
Josh Robbins on Twitter
ImpactO'Quinn is averaging a steady 14 minutes per game off the bench this season, but his loss won't be felt in standard fantasy leagues. We'll consider him day-to-day until details of his injury are disclosed.
O'Quinn goes for 14 and six with four blocks | 11/01/2013 11:25 PM
NewsKyle O'Quinn scored 14 points on 6-of-8 shooting with six rebounds and four blocks in 22 minutes off the bench on Friday.
ImpactO'Quinn doesn't profile as a guy to get many minutes off the bench and got these numbers in garbage time, but if he plays like this more often perhaps that calculus can change. For now he can be ignored in most formats.
Kyle O'Quinn plays well in another start | 10/22/2013 10:57 PM
NewsKyle O'Quinn had 10 points, nine rebounds, five assists and two blocks on 5-of-12 shooting Tuesday.
ImpactNikola Vucevic and Tobias Harris sat this one out, so O'Quinn took advantage of the minutes. He's probably going to get some back up minutes for the Magic big men this season, but as long as Vucevic is healthy, it's hard to see O'Quinn holding any fantasy value.
Kyle O'Quinn quiet in spot-start at PF | 04/13/2013 9:53 PM
NewsKyle O'Quinn made a rare start at PF on Saturday, but he fouled out with just four points (2-of-10 FGs) and six rebounds in 24 minutes.
ImpactJacque Vaughn started O'Quinn to better match up with Kevin Garnett and the Celtics' frontcourt, but his lineup tweaks amounted to beans in a 32-point drubbing in Orlando. It seems Jason Terry's comments about the Magic being "terrible" didn't do much to fire them up.
Kyle O'Quinn plays well off Magic bench | 04/02/2013 12:27 AM
NewsKyle O'Quinn had 10 points and eight boards off the Magic bench on Monday, despite playing just 12 minutes.
ImpactStarter Nikola Vucevic is back in action, meaning O'Quinn no longer holds much fantasy value. But he's certainly still worth keeping a close eye on after tonight's big game in such limited minutes.
Kyle O'Quinn quiet in 23 minutes off bench | 03/30/2013 10:04 PM
NewsKyle O'Quinn had two points, seven rebounds and one block off the bench vs. Atlanta, before fouling out in 23 minutes.
ImpactThe Magic rookie had a nice run at center while Nikola Vucevic was out, but with Vuc back there is no reason to keep O'Quinn. Just file away his numbers as a starter for future reference -- 12.5 points on 66.7 percent shooting, 7.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 0.8 blocks in 29 minutes per game.
Kyle O'Quinn cools off on Friday vs. WAS | 03/29/2013 10:53 PM
NewsKyle O'Quinn cooled off against the Wizards on Friday with four points, four boards, four assists and two blocks in 22 minutes.
ImpactThe two blocks help his case tonight, but those that picked him up following his 23-point outburst are likely disappointed. Andrew Nicholson returned and stole some of his thunder, but O'Quinn shouldn't be hastily cut unless it's to pick up a hot free agent.
Kyle O'Quinn goes for 23 & 11 in loss | 03/27/2013 10:11 PM
NewsKyle O'Quinn made another start at center on Wednesday and exploded for a career-high 23 points to go along with 11 rebounds, six assists and a steal on 11-of-14 shooting.
ImpactHe didn't have a block tonight, but it's hard to be anything but excited about this line if you happened to roll the dice on him. He'll continue to get run as long as Nikola Vucevic is out, but keep in mind that this is probably as good as it's going to get all year, as he was going up against Bismack Biyombo and the Bobcats tonight. If you need a center, O'Quinn should be serviceable for as long as Vucevic sits with his concussion.
O'Quinn goes for 12 and six vs. Heat | 03/25/2013 10:55 PM
NewsKyle O'Quinn scored 12 points on 6-of-7 shooting with six rebounds and one block in 23 minutes on Monday against the Heat.
ImpactIf you bought into O'Quinn due to Nikola Vucevic's concussion this is what you signed up for, and by virtue of that it is a win. It's starting to sound based on beat writer comments that Vucevic could miss some substantial time, but they have not come out and said that.
O'Quinn nears double-double on Friday | 03/22/2013 10:58 PM
NewsKyle O'Quinn started at center with Nikola Vucevic (concussion) out in Friday's loss to the Thunder, scoring 11 points on 5-of-11 shooting with nine rebounds and one steal in 27 minutes.
ImpactVucevic's concussion is said to be mild but we don't have any idea what stage he is in with regards to the league's protocols. If you need a big man give O'Quinn a look as a potential spot-play with short-term upside. The Magic don't play until Monday, so Vucevic will get the weekend to get healthy.
Kyle O'Quinn has big game for Magic | 03/21/2013 12:08 AM
NewsKyle O'Quinn exploded off the Magic bench for 12 points, 14 rebounds and four assists on 5-of-10 shooting in Wednesday's loss to the Knicks.
ImpactThose are career highs across the board, but keep in mind that starter Nikola Vucevic was out with an illness, and that O'Quinn had scored a total of 10 points in his previous 10 games. Maybe the hapless Magic will give him more run going forward, but as of now, there's no reason to pick him up.
Kyle O'Quinn scores career-high 11 | 02/01/2013 11:36 PM
NewsKyle O'Quinn scored a career-high 11 points with three rebounds and one assist in seven minutes against the Celtics on Friday.
ImpactHis previous career high was six points and he's been promoted to garbage-time duty with Glen Davis (foot) out for 8-12 weeks. He can be ignored in almost all formats.
