Aaron Gordon's shooting woes continued on Sunday as he went just 5-of-17 from the field and 1-of-2 from the stripe on his way to 11 points, 13 boards, four assists and two turnovers in 38 minutes.
Gordon has been connecting on just 33.6% of his shot attempts over the past eight games, although he’s still been effective with averages of 16.5 points, 8.5 boards, 2.3 assists, 1.3 triples, 0.8 steals and 2.4 turnovers per game. We should see a regression to the mean with his jump shot soon enough, and the steals numbers should also start trending up as well. A favorable matchup against the Kings on Tuesday could help him to start moving in the right direction. Jan 21 - 4:12 PM

Aaron Gordon scored 17 points during a 104-103 loss to the Cavs on Thursday, adding 11 rebounds, two assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He did not start the second half, but he came in after just one minute into the third quarter -- you can feel free to guess why. Gordon has really struggled with his jumper since his return from injury on Dec. 28, making just 28.7 percent of his 115 attempts, which explains why he's made just 39.2 percent from the field over those 10. Either way, Gordon continues to fill it up and he should be able to climb into the mid-40s for FG% soon enough.

Aaron Gordon struggled with his shot Friday at Washington, but he was able to scratch out 14 points with 10 rebounds and seven assists.

Gordon was a dismal 4-of-15 from the field, although he was still able to connect for 3-of-6 from behind the 3-point line while flirting with a triple-double. He was late for a team flight earlier in the week, benched in Dallas, and he just hasn't recovered in his two games back in the starting lineup. He is shooting just 8-of-33 (24.2 percent) over the past two outings. Still, the double-double was nice and remains a fantasy option in most formats through thick and thin.
Jan 12 - 11:31 PM

Aaron Gordon finished with 11 points, four rebounds and an assist across 30 minutes Wednesday in Milwaukee, but he hit just 4-of-18 from the field.

Gordon returned to the starting lineup Wednesday after being benched Tuesday for showing up late for the team's flight. He supplanted Mario Hezonja, who was very efficient off the bench. Despite the poor shooting night, it's unlikely Gordon will be removed again from the starting five anytime soon. If you normally depend on Gordon for fantasy purposes, get him back in the active lineup.
Jan 10 - 10:29 PM

Aaron Gordon will return to the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Bucks, sending Mario Hezonja back to the bench.

Gordon was benched on Tuesday because he showed up late for the team plane on Monday, but he'll be back in his usual spot in the starting lineup tonight and he'll be joined by Elfrid Payton, Evan Fournier, Jonathon Simmons and Bismack Biyombo. Feel free to get Gordon active.

Aaron Gordon, who was benched at the start of Tuesday's game vs. the Mavericks, was back in the first unit in the second half and finished with 19 points in a 114-99 loss.

The Magic brought him off the bench because he was late for their team plane on Monday, but he saw his normal allotment of minutes (33) and finished with eight rebounds, two assists and one triple. He was 6-of-16 from the field and 6-of-8 from the line, but it says a lot about his improvement that this is considered an off night. He should be back in his usual role on Wednesday vs. the Bucks and will likely see a lot of Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Jan 9 - 11:03 PM

Aaron Gordon won't start on Tuesday vs. Dallas "due to a violation of team rules."

We don't how much he will play tonight, as Gordon was reportedly late for a team plane on Monday. His season-long owners should just deploy him and hope for the best. Elfrid Payton, Evan Fournier, Jonathon Simmons, Mario Hezonja and Bismack Biyombo will start.
Jan 9 - 7:58 PM

Aaron Gordon rolled up a team-high 30 points in Saturday's game against the Cavaliers, going toe-to-toe with LeBron James in the scoring department before he fouled out.

Gordon was matching buckets with the best, hitting 13-of-26 from the field while adding eight rebounds, two steals and an assist across 32 minutes. He was especially hot in the second half, going for 24 points before fouling out. He'll look to build upon the momentum in Tuesday's game in Dallas in a very favorable matchup.
Jan 6 - 10:17 PM

Aaron Gordon had a rough night vs. Houston, going 7-of-23 from the field for 16 points with two 3-pointers, eight rebounds and zero assists or defensive stats in 33 minutes.

Gordon saw some minutes at center tonight and Orlando continues to find ways to play through him despite increased attention from opposing defenses. "My coaching staff and organization has trusted me," Gordon said before the game. "I need to mature quickly and continue to figure out ways to win for this team and win as a group." There will be some bumps in the road, but he's still sitting on top-30 roto value and his arrow is pointing straight up.
Jan 3 - 11:05 PM

Aaron Gordon's 20 points and 12 rebounds weren't enough in Monday's loss to the Nets.

Gordon's shot selection tonight wasn't great, and he finished just 8-of-20 from the field and 2-of-3 from the line with one steal and two triples. The good news is that his floor going forward is going to be even higher, as he played some backup center tonight and logged a team-high 41 minutes -- coach Frank Vogel said before the game that he's going to use Gordon there in certain situations. His fantasy arrow continues to point up and his 20-12 effort comes on the heels of a 39-point game on Saturday.
Jan 1 - 10:41 PM

Aaron Gordon returned to stud form during a 117-111 loss to the Heat on Saturday, scoring 39 points with seven rebounds, one assist, two blocks, no turnovers and five 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

The bad news is he missed a clutch 3-pointer down three to potentially cost the Magic. Gordon was on fire in the third quarter and got to the 30-point mark for the game with four minutes left in the third. Gordon did have some soreness in his calf on Thursday, but today's stat line is all you need to see to ease your concerns there. With Nikola Vucevic (hand) out, AG is about to feast.

Aaron Gordon's calf was sore after returning on Thursday, but coach Frank Vogel said he should be good to go for Saturday's game vs. the Heat.

Gordon went through a limited practice on Friday, but it sounds like the Magic were just taking it easy on him after he played 30 minutes Thursday. He looked great with 14 points, seven rebounds, two assists, one block and two triples, and his owners can plan on having him in their lineups.

Aaron Gordon (calf) returned to action in Thursday's 102-89 win over the Pistons, scoring 14 points with seven rebounds, two assists, one block and two triples in 30 minutes.

Gordon looked bouncy as ever and Elfrid Payton found him for a sick alley-oop jam in one of the highlights of the night (link below). He did have five turnovers, but Gordon gave the Magic a big lift tonight and it's no coincidence that they were able to snap a nine-game losing streak. Assuming Gordon can stay healthy, he should be able to maintain his top-30 position in standard leagues the rest of the way, especially with Orlando banged up.

Updating a previous item, both Aaron Gordon (right calf strain) and Evan Fournier (sore right foot) will start on Thursday vs. Detroit.

This was the expectation, and now it's official with both players surviving the test of pre-game warmups. Neither Gordon nor Fournier will be facing a minutes limit, so feel free to get either or both into your lineup(s). Orlando will round out its starting five with Elfrid Payton, Jonathon Simmons, and Bismack Biyombo, sending Mario Hezonja back to the bench.

Magic head coach Frank Vogel expects Aaron Gordon (right calf) and Evan Fournier (sore right foot) to play on Thursday vs. Detroit.

Vogel wants to see both players in warm-ups before giving them the final all-clear, but it sounds like there is a good shot of both being ready to go. So long as they are cleared, both guys will start, and per Vogel, neither should have a minutes limit. We should have final word shortly, so check back for an update. If either player is unable to go, Mario Hezonja would start in their place.
