Aaron Gordon made just 1-of-10 from the field for two points with six rebounds and one assist in 26 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday.

His shot selection was pretty solid, but it just didn't fall for him. Before the game, coach Scott Skiles really praised Gordon for his hustle and rebounding -- Skiles loves hustle and rebounding. Gordon's defense has been burned on cuts, but he looked fine there and the low minute total just because he was off. Expect him to get over 30 minutes on Friday against the Clippers. He should be owned in standard leagues.

Aaron Gordon grabbed a career-high 16 boards during a 107-92 loss to the Spurs on Monday, adding 12 points and one block in 31 minutes.

He did not play in garbage time, so his minutes might have been a little more tonight. Coach Scott Skiles has been talking about his team hustling more, so that is a great sign for Gordon and his ability to create plays from his athleticism. He should be owned in all leagues.

Aaron Gordon was tremendous vs. the Celtics on Sunday, finishing a home victory with a career-high five assists, 19 points (8-of-11 FGs, 3-of-9 FTs), 14 rebounds and two blocks.

AG had a highlight-reel block on Avery Bradley's 3-point attempt down the stretch, then followed it up with a few hyper-athletic moves offensively (see the link below). The 20-year-old is making the most of his newfound starting gig, and he's averaging a healthy 34.0 minutes in Orlando's past three games -- tonight's 39 minutes were a new career-high. His rest-of-season outlook is golden and he's the envy of anyone who has Terrence Jones or Markieff Morris stashed on their bench.
Jan 31 - 9:58 PM

Aaron Gordon scored 12 points during a 113-94 loss to the Celtics on Friday, adding nine rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

He still hasn't busted out since taking over as the starter, but it could be coming. It's worth mentioning that his competition for minutes, Channing Frye, Evan Fournier, Andrew Nicholson and Mario Hezonja, have all been pretty bad. Expect Gordon to heat up even more, especially with the Magic losing so many games.
Jan 29 - 10:49 PM

Aarono Gordon made another start on Tuesday and hit 3-of-9 shots for nine points, nine rebounds, three assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

The minutes are there but he's yet to put it all together for a spectacular fantasy line. Be patient with him and know that as long as he's starting, his breakout game is probably just around the corner.
Jan 26 - 11:35 PM

Aaron Gordon scored 10 points with nine rebounds and one block in 24 minutes against the Grizzlies on Monday.

He did not close this game out because coach Scott Skiles probably wanted some shooting with Evan Fournier to try and make a comeback. Gordon should be able to log minutes in the 24-30 range going forward, which makes him worth owning in standard leagues.
Jan 25 - 11:12 PM

The Magic will start Elfrid Payton, Victor Oladipo, Aaron Gordon, Tobias Harris and Nikola Vucevic on Monday vs. the Grizzlies.

The Magic did lose to the Hornets with this lineup, but coach Scott Skiles is sticking with them. Despite some early foul trouble in his first start of the season, Gordon still finished with 10 points, seven rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer on 4-of-4 from the field. He needs to be owned in standard leagues to see if he can build some momentum.
Jan 25 - 7:39 PM

Aaron Gordon said his early foul trouble on Friday during his first start of the year was due to being "overexcited."

His foul issues kept him to four minutes in the first half, but he played 20 in the second half and overtime. Gordon doesn't have fouling issues in his career, so it was a fluke to see him rack them up on Friday. Gordon should be owned in standard leagues to see how he fits in the first unit.
Jan 23 - 7:26 PM

Aaron Gordon scored 10 points in his first start of the season against the Hornets on Friday, adding seven rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer on 4-of-4 from the field.

He only played 24 minutes because he was in foul trouble due to three fouls in the first four minutes of the game. Gordon played well and the main Magic rotation guys were at their best when Gordon was out there. It wasn't the greatest game, but there should be better things on the horizon. He should be owned in standard leagues.
Jan 22 - 9:54 PM

Aaron Gordon will start in place of Channing Frye on Friday against the Hornets.

Finally. The Magic have been a disaster when Channing Frye has been on the court and they've fared well with Gordon out there in this lineup. Gordon can do it all and it'll be interesting to see how many minutes he can get. He's capable of playing huge minutes, so it makes sense to add him now to see what happens.
Jan 22 - 5:20 PM

Aaron Gordon came off the bench for seven points, eight rebounds and one assist in 32 minutes during Wednesday's home loss.

Gordon had 18/7/3 in 27 minutes on Monday, and the playing time is the key for fantasy purposes -- he played the final 20 minutes at PF in place of Channing Frye. Tonight's loss was Orlando's eighth in their past nine games, so maybe all the losing has prompted Scott Skiles to change his rotation and get Gordon more involved. He's a nice pickup while we see if the trend continues on Friday.
Jan 20 - 10:29 PM

Scott Skiles said that he's contemplating a lineup change for Wednesday's game vs. the 76ers, although he would not provide any details as to whom he is thinking about sending to the bench.

Technically the most deserving candidate of a demotion to the second-unit would be Channing Frye, with Aaron Gordon earning a spot in the starting five, but nothing is ever that obvious with Coach Skiles. Gordon's minutes have been trending up lately, and he's a far superior defender than Frye, so it'll be interesting to see if anything becomes of this quote.
Jan 19 - 3:04 PM

Aaron Gordon scored a team-high 18 points against the Hawks on Monday with seven rebounds, three assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

He played 14 minutes next to Tobias Harris and it would've been more if the Magic weren't blown out. Gordon is logging around that amount of playing time next to Tobias this month, which should mean the days of him playing less than 20 minutes are behind him -- Jason Smith hot first halves not withstanding. Gordon is a high-end stash and is trending up.
Jan 18 - 7:29 PM

Aaron Gordon (ankle) played seven minutes against the Raptors on Thursday, failing to score with one rebound.

He was bad on defense and did not play at all in the final 36:21 of this game, which is basically the opposite of what's been happening. Gordon played the final 19 minutes in his last game and his minutes at power forward were the reason why. Well, Jason Smith took his playing time in this one, which won't continue because Smith was awful in the second half. If you have Gordon, today's game alone isn't a reason to cut him.
