Despite coming into this game with a league-high 64 percent from three in home games, he actually missed all four shots from deep in this game. Gordon continues to flirt with 20 points most nights and he's adding a little bit of everything to his stat line. His breakout campaign should last all season. Nov 18 - 9:36 PM

Aaron Gordon hit 4-of-10 shots on Wednesday for 12 points, five rebounds, two steals, one assist and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

The Blazers are typically tough against power forwards, but with Al-Farouq Aminu (ankle) sidelined and Noah Vonleh still getting up to speed, AG's owners surely expected more. Part of the reason he's holding second-round value is his ability to contribute across-the-board stats -- tonight it was a pair of steals and threes that bolstered his value. The Magic get a few days of rest before hosting the Jazz on Wednesday.

Aaron Gordon said he would accept an invitation to the 2018 NBA Slam Dunk contest if asked by the league.

Yeah, it's probably safe to assume the NBA will ask. In addition to being one of the league's most dynamic dunkers this decade, Gordon has also improved all aspects of his game this season. In fact, maybe Air Gordon will seek an invite to the 3-point competition as well, considering his shooting a scorching 51.9 percent from downtown this season.

Aaron Gordon scored 22 points with seven rebounds, three assists, one block, one steal and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Suns in a 128-112 victory on Friday.

If your last name is Gordon and you have kids, you may want to get them to start shooting 3-pointers. Eric Gordon leads the NBA in 3-point attempts per game at 11.2 and Aaron Gordon leads the NBA in 3-point percentage at 59.5 percent. Kidding aside, Gordon is absolutely ridiculous on his jumpers with a 64.0 eFG%, which crushes his 39.1 from last year. Gordon is on the brink of being a first-round player and we're totally him being a top-25 player. Sure, he won't be this good, but he's a monster. Next time someone tells you preseason doesn't matter, just say Aaron Gordon.
Nov 11 - 12:22 AM

Aaron Gordon double-doubled on Sunday with 18 points and 12 rebounds, adding two assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes during a loss to Boston.

The Magic still have a 6-4 record despite the extended absence of Elfrid Payton, and Gordon has been the catalyst of their success. Now in his fourth NBA season, he's putting up career-high numbers in every single fantasy-relevant category, which isn't something we can say often. His lofty 58.1 percent shooting from deep will inevitably decline, but the across-the-board production is here to stay. He's a stud.
Nov 5 - 9:01 PM

Aaron Gordon scored 11 points with seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers vs. the Bulls on Friday.

The Magic were blown out by 22 points, so AG only played 29 minutes. His owners should still be thrilled with the early returns, as he's hit 18-of-31 (58.1 percent) 3-pointers this season and is posting top-20 value in standard 9-category leagues. Next up for the Magic is a home game against the Celtics on Sunday.
Nov 3 - 10:05 PM

Aaron Gordon scored 19 points with seven rebounds, two assists, one block, two steals and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes during a 101-99 win over the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

He's a big reason why the Magic rank second in offensive rating in the NBA, and even more surprisingly they're third in the NBA in pace. Since Gordon returned from his ankle injury, he's averaged 22.0 points, 8.6 boards, 2.2 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.8 treys on 60.9 percent from the field. Gordon cracks the top 15 for per-game value in standard leagues on the season, and his owners should believe he can be an early-round guy the rest of the way.
Nov 2 - 1:16 AM

Aaron Gordon couldn't stay out of foul trouble vs. the Pelicans on Monday, finishing with 17 points, seven rebounds, one assist, two steals, three 3-pointers and four turnovers.

That's a heck of a line in just 18 minutes, but his owners can blame Anthony Davis for getting him into foul trouble. AG finished 7-of-13 from the field and missed his only free throw, and he's on pace for an incredible season with top-20 value in standard 9-category leagues so far.
Oct 30 - 11:37 PM

Aaron Gordon chipped in across the board on Sunday with 17 points, nine rebounds, four assists, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

AG is rolling as a featured option in Orlando's fast-paced offense this summer, and he credited coach Frank Vogel for instilling him with confidence. "[Vogel] has given me the confidence to basically, when I get the rebound, play point guard," Gordon said. "That's just a big, big plus ... I can get everybody involved, we can push the pace." Gordon is posting huge numbers, to the tune of second-round fantasy value, and it looks sustainable thanks to increased 3-point range and playmaking duties.

Aaron Gordon made 7-of-11 from the field for 16 points with six rebounds, two assists, one block and two 3-pointers during a 114-87 win over the Spurs on Friday.

Your Eastern Conference-leading Orlando Magic are on a roll and they're doing it with offense. In particular, Gordon's jump shot has been Curry-esque with an unreal 68.0 eFG% on his 25 attempts -- unassisted 61.5 percent of the time, too. He spent all offseason working on his jumper with some outside-of-the-box methods, but it is working big time as he looks like a mega breakout candidate. Fantasy owners probably shouldn't take victory laps this soon, but Gordon looks like he's going to be a monster all season long.
Oct 27 - 9:59 PM

Aaron Gordon scored a career-high 41 points and hit all five of his 3-pointers in Tuesday's 125-121 win over the Nets.

Yeah, his ankle is probably OK. Gordon spent the offseason working on his 3-point shot and he's playing exclusively at his natural position, so he already looks like one of the best value picks in fantasy basketball. He finished a ridiculous 14-of-18 from the field and hit 8-of-10 free throws, adding 12 rebounds and two assists in 37 minutes. The breakout is real.
Oct 24 - 9:43 PM

Aaron Gordon (sore left ankle) will be active and will start Tuesday night vs. the Nets.

This was expected, as Gordon returned to practice on Monday. Still, it is good news that he didn't suffer any setbacks and is ready to roll on Tuesday night. Gordon was terrific in the preseason and could be primed for a breakout season if he can stay healthy. Jonathan Isaac, who had started each of the two games that Gordon missed, will get bumped back to the bench. Mario Hezonja, who was a DNP-CD on opening night with Gordon active, will likely lose his spot in the rotation.

Aaron Gordon (ankle) practiced on Monday and is expected to return on Tuesday vs. the Nets.

This is a relief for fantasy owners and Magic fans after Gordon missed the past two games. Gordon had a dominant preseason and looked good in the opener with 14 points, nine boards, three assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes. We'll confirm his availability after Monday's shootaround. Jonathan Isaac will shift to the bench with Gordon back and Mario Hezonja will likely be pushed out of the rotation.
Oct 23 - 1:33 PM

Aaron Gordon (ankle) will not play against the Cavs on Saturday.

This is a tough one for the Magic, who will also be missing Elfrid Payton. Jonathan Isaac got the start on Friday and played 23 minutes, but he was in serious foul trouble with three fouls in his first four minutes. He could definitely be in foul trouble again, but Isaac makes sense as a DFS option. Evan Fournier should be busy.
Oct 21 - 6:35 PM

Aaron Gordon (sore left ankle) is listed as questionable and will be a game-time decision for Saturday's game vs. the Cavs.

Gordon initially injured his ankle in the Magic's season opener vs. Miami. He was a GTD for Friday's game as well and ended up sitting out, telling reporters that he would have hurt the team if he tried to play through the pain. Unfortunately, it looks like we'll have to wait until just prior to tip-off before getting confirmation on his status. Jonathan Isaac started in place of Gordon Friday and tallied nine points and three dimes in 23 minutes. Nikola Vucevic had a monster night (41 points and 12 boards) as the focal point of the offense on Friday.
