Aaron Gordon had a disappointingly quiet night on Monday in Denver, finishing with just four points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 28 minutes.
Gordon has alternated bad games and good games over the last two weeks. Here are his scoring totals over Orlando's last six games: 18, two, 28, eight, 21, four. Hopefully, that means he'll bounce back in a big way on Wednesday when the Magic travel to New Orleans. Despite the inconsistency, his numbers are solid this season and his roster spot in standard leagues should be secure. Jan 16 - 9:10 PM

Aaron Gordon hit 8-of-14 shots for 21 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointer in Saturday’s loss to the Jazz.

After a subpar game against Portland, Gordon bounced back nicely tonight and continues to have a nice month. Prior to tonight’s game, he averaged 31.4 minutes, 15.1 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists in January. At this time, there is no reason why he should be on waivers in any format, especially now that the Magic have abandoned the two-center ball that has hurt Gordon for so much this season and with Evan Fournier (foot, heel) hurting.
Jan 14 - 11:56 PM

Aaron Gordon made 11-of-17 shots to finish Wednesday's road loss with a game-high 28 points, four 3-pointers, three rebounds and three assists in 39 minutes.

Gordon scored a career-high 33 points in his last game vs. the Clippers on Dec. 14, but unfortunately this is the last time he'll face them this season. He was coming off a dreadful two-point game, and he saw extra opportunities tonight with Serge Ibaka (shoulder) on the sidelines, but that's no reason to downplay tonight's performance. He was aggressive all night and seems to have found his sweet spot in the offense -- excluding Sunday's dud, he's averaging 20.8 points on 50.8 percent shooting in his past four games. Needless to say, he shouldn't be on your waiver wire.
Jan 12 - 2:08 AM

Aaron Gordon flopped on Sunday with just two points, six rebounds and one assist in 24 minutes, finishing 0-of-5 from the field and 2-of-4 from the line.

All but one of Gordon's shots came from beyond the arc tonight -- he's shooting 32.6 percent from that distance this year, but there's no reason a player with his athleticism should be languishing 22+ feet from the hoop on most possessions. His owners should be used to inconsistency, and he was hot in his previous four games, so just shrug off tonight's dud.
Jan 9 - 1:40 AM

Aaron Gordon handed out a career-high seven assists in a 100-93 loss to the Rockets on Friday, adding 18 points, six rebounds, one steal and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He could be back and the move of Evan Fournier in the starting lineup did not hurt him whatsoever. Gordon was expected to be coach Frank Vogel's "Paul George" this year and it wasn't happening in 2016, but he's really had a lot of offense go through him these days. We're not ready to say he's going to thrive all year, but he sure does look impressive right now. Make sure he's owned.
Jan 6 - 10:12 PM

Aaron Gordon notched his second double-double of the season on Wednesday with 15 points, 10 rebounds, two 3-pointers and two assists in just 25 minutes.

Gordon has been disappointing this year, but he's heating up lately and deserves a pickup if he's still available. If you toss out Wednesday's two-point dud, he's now averaging 20.0 points, 2.5 triples, 6.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.0 steals in his past four games. Not too shabby.
Jan 4 - 10:11 PM

Aaron Gordon scored 22 points on 8-of-19 shooting in Monday's 115-103 win over the Knicks.

AG finished 8-of-19 from the field and attempted 10 3-pointers on the night, connecting on three of them. He also grabbed six rebounds with six assists, one steal and two turnovers in 32 minutes, posting a line that his owners were envisioning when they likely spent a mid-round pick on him on draft day. Coach Frank Vogel said before the game that he was considering a lineup switch, so hopefully that lit a fire under the athletic forward. He's a great stash and is off to a strong start to the new year with 13 points, six rebounds, one block, two steals and one triple in his previous outing.
Jan 2 - 11:54 PM

Aaron Gordon was held to two points on 1-of-5 shooting with four rebounds and two assists in 25 minutes in a blowout loss to the Hornets on Wednesday.

He was coming off a monster 30-point game but it's no secret that he's been very inconsistent on the offensive end. With that said, his defense has been solid and his opponents have made only 40.7 percent of their shots this season when Gordon has guarded them -- Tony Allen has limited opponents to 40.8 percent and Kawhi Leonard has held opponents to 45.2 percent shooting. That doesn't help fantasy owners too much, but expect Gordon to trend up as the season progresses. Treat him as a stash for now.

Aaron Gordon hit 11-of-15 shots, 4-of-4 3-pointers and 4-of-5 free throws on his way to 30 points, one rebound, one assist, one steal and one block in Monday's win over the Grizzlies.

Here we go again. Gordon scored 33 points back on Dec. 14 and then scored in single figures in three of his next five games, with his high being 13 points over that stretch. He's had big games before this season, but has still not been able to string together good games. The good news is that the Magic are 15-18 and should eventually fall out of the playoff race, which could end up freeing Gordon.
Mon, Dec 26, 2016 09:50:00 PM

Aaron Gordon scored six points with two rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 19 minutes against the Knicks on Thursday.

All that momentum from his 33-point game has slowed to a crawl. In the four games since, Gordon averaged 9.5 points, 3.0 boards, 1.0 assists, 0.3 steals, 0.8 treys and 0.0 blocks on 37.8 percent from the field. Despite how coach Frank Vogel talked him up in the preseason, Gordon just hasn't panned out. He's more of a stash because the Magic should use him more once they fall out of the playoff race.

Aaron Gordon bounced back with 12 points, five rebounds, one assist and one triple in 28 minutes against the Heat on Tuesday.

Despite the encouraging line, it's a little disappointing that Gordon played 28 minutes compared to 32 for Jeff Green in the double-overtime win. Gordon finished 4-of-8 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line, but he's going to be a volatile fantasy asset for the foreseeable future. Hopefully the Magic will unleash him after the All-Star break like they did last season.
Tue, Dec 20, 2016 11:58:00 PM

Aaron Gordon scored just seven points on Sunday, struggling for the second consecutive game after a season-high 33 point game.

Gordon was ineffective against the Raptors and has cooled off in the last two games. He has displayed his upside several times this season, but lacks consistency, making him a frustrating player to own in fantasy leagues.
Sun, Dec 18, 2016 09:27:00 PM

Aaron Gordon scored 13 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one triple in 28 minutes against the Nets on Friday.

It was a decent game for Gordon, but he only hit 4-of-12 shots from the field and finished 4-of-5 from the line. He's obviously coming off that big career-high 33-point performance against the Clippers, but the return of Nikola Vucevic (back) tonight took a few minutes away from each Magic starter. "I don’t expect to get 33 points from him every night," coach Frank Vogel said. "I encourage him to explore his game within the team concept and keep shooting the basketball." Gordon is trending up and should be owned in standard leagues.
Fri, Dec 16, 2016 10:17:00 PM

Aaron Gordon exploded against the Clippers during a 113-108 loss on Wednesday, scoring a career-high 33 points with seven rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

Wow. As big as this game was, let's not totally overreact. Gordon has scored just 32 points in his previous four games and he also played just 18 minutes on Tuesday during Orlando's win against the Hawks. Luckily for Gordon, Luc Mbah a Moute (shoulder) did not play, so he had guys like Austin Rivers, Chris Paul and Jamal Crawford defending him a lot tonight. Additionally, Nikola Vucevic (back) not playing helped him, too. Gordon did show some promise last year, so he's worth a pickup to see if he can stay hot. Owners in shallower leagues may want to see him do it again in a favorable matchup against the Nets on Friday.
Wed, Dec 14, 2016 09:54:00 PM

Aaron Gordon started on Tuesday, but played just 18 minutes to finish with seven points, three rebounds, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer.

Jeff Green played 31 minutes and hit 6-of-14 shots and a 3-pointer for 16 points, four rebounds and an assist in the win. Green has easily been outplaying Gordon this month, while Gordon has seen his minutes dwindle to 22 and 18 in his last two games. He's averaging just 8.2 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 3-pointers on 44 percent shooting over his last five games, at 25 minutes per. But with Green coming on and Gordon's minutes taking a dip, he could start showing up on waiver wires soon. He's no longer a must-own player, but there's a long way to go in the season and he could still get it turned around at some point.
