Aaron Gordon couldn't build on Friday's strong game, scoring 10 points on Sunday with three rebounds and zero assists, steals, blocks or 3-pointers.
This is the epitome of a hollow line, which has been all too familiar this season. The move to SF hasn't played to Gordon's strengths and it's hard to see him making a big leap while Serge Ibaka and Jeff Green are both healthy. Dec 4 - 8:36 PM

Aaron Gordon busted out against the 76ers during a 105-88 win on Friday, scoring a season-high 20 points with two rebounds, one block and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

It was just two points off his career high and Gordon did most of his damage in the first half with 15 points. He's been horrendous for his previous 10 games with only a 37.1 field goal percentage for 8.0 points and 1.2 dimes on the offensive side. Maybe this game can get him going, but it was a dream matchup for him. He's only a borderline hold right now and gets a tougher matchup against the Pistons on Sunday.
Dec 2 - 10:32 PM

The Magic will stick with the starting lineup of D.J. Augustin, Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon, Serge Ibaka and Bismack Biyombo against the 76ers.

The starting nod hasn't really helped Gordon while it has helped Fournier get more shots and be a facilitator. It's a great matchup for both wings, so maybe Gordon can get going. Nikola Vucevic should be fine off the bench, especially against Jahlil Okafor.

Aaron Gordon started again on Thursday but played just 21 minutes to finish with eight points, three rebounds, two assists and a block on 3-of-6 shooting.

Owners have reached the end of their rope with Gordon and his new starting role isn't really helping. In an ideal world he's still a hold, but if he's killing your fantasy team and you're watching good players being swiped off the wire while you're hanging onto him, a move might be in order. Just don't be surprised if he's a better player a month from now.

Aaron Gordon scored 11 points on 5-of-9 shooting in Tuesday's win over the Spurs.

Small steps. Gordon looked much better tonight, but he only played 19 minutes due to foul trouble. He added three rebounds and a triple, and it looks like he may stick in the Magic starting lineup with Jeff Green (back) coming off the bench Tuesday. Gordon should start to turn things around soon and is a hold in standard leagues.
Nov 29 - 11:35 PM

Aaron Gordon couldn't buy a bucket as a fill-in starter on Sunday, going 0-of-12 from the field to finish scoreless with eight boards, three assists and one steal in 32 minutes.

Jeff Green (sore lower back) was unavailable tonight, giving Gordon a boost in the playing-time department, but he simply couldn't get his shot to drop. He's shooting 62.0 percent within eight feet of the hoop, but is a miserable 31-of-103 beyond eight feet (30.1 percent). Gordon's multi-cat contributions give him nice upside, but he'll need to start making jumpers to crack top-100 value.
Nov 27 - 9:59 PM

D.J. Augustin, Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon, Serge Ibaka and Bismack Biyombo will start Sunday vs. the Bucks.

Elfrid Payton and Nikola Vucevic will come off the bench in this one, and Jeff Green (back) being unavailable will allow Gordon to return to the starting five. With Augustin at the point, that should open up some spacing for Gordon, so he should be able to turn things around tonight and is a safe bet to be looking at minutes close to the 30-minute mark sans Green.
Nov 27 - 5:32 PM

Aaron Gordon is expected to move back into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Bucks.

Jeff Green is out with a sore back, so Gordon could easily see his minutes in the 30s tonight, and his value will see a nice bump in the starting unit. As a starter this season, Gordon has put in averages of 11.0 points, 5.3 boards, 1.4 steals and 1.0 triple per game, so feel free to get him active.
Nov 27 - 5:06 PM

Aaron Gordon hit rock bottom on Monday vs. the Bucks, scoring five points on 1-of-5 shooting with four rebounds and one steal in 21 minutes.

AG missed all three of his 3-pointers and hit just 3-of-6 from the line with a pair of turnovers. His value has never been lower this season and his owners might be getting a little impatient. There's reason for hope, however, as the Magic are just 6-8 on the season and should prioritize his development after the All-Star break. Jeff Green hasn't exactly been lighting it up either.
Nov 22 - 12:14 AM

Aaron Gordon finished Sunday's game with 12 points in 22 minutes off the bench, making 5-of-9 shots with one 3-pointer, one rebound and one assist.

The Magic snapped a three-game losing streak, so it's likely that Gordon will come off the bench again on Monday vs. the Pacers. While it's not ideal for his fantasy value, it's also not a death sentence -- his usage could increase with the second unit and he only needs 25+ minutes to be worth a hold in 12-team formats. Stay patient.
Nov 13 - 9:48 PM

Aaron Gordon moved to the bench for the first time this season, finishing with nine points, seven rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks in 25 minutes against the Jazz on Friday.

It was one of his better games of the year in reality. Coach Frank Vogel said he wanted to change things up to give the veterans more of a role. Gordon hasn't really distributed the ball as much as the Magic expected him to, averaging 2.4 assists per game. He's also not shooting the ball well at 40.7 percent from the field. He's still hanging around top-75 value despite the slow start.
Nov 11 - 11:27 PM

Aaron Gordon will come off the bench on Friday vs. the Jazz.

The Magic have been contemplating a lineup change for a while, but the fantasy community won't like this move. Frank Vogel wants more scoring in the first unit, so Jeff Green will take Gordon's spot in the starting five. Gordon should still see a lot of minutes, but we'll have an update after the game to break down what his new role could look like.
Nov 11 - 6:19 PM

Aaron Gordon made 2-of-9 from the field for seven points during a 123-107 loss to the Wolves on Wednesday, adding four rebounds, one block and one turnover in 31 minutes.

He's sputtering a bit in his last six, averaging 9.8 points, 4.5 boards, 2.8 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.8 blocks and 0.8 treys in 28.9 minutes per game. Gordon has made just 37.9 percentage from the field in that span, which includes a woeful 25.0 percent on his 20 two-point beyond three feet. He still has plenty of leash, so just keep starting him and hope he turns it around.
Nov 9 - 11:19 PM

Aaron Gordon scored 15 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes vs. the Bulls on Monday.

He joined Evan Fournier as the only Magic players to see 30 minutes in the blowout loss. Gordon's role is locked in this season under coach Frank Vogel and his numbers are up nearly across the board. He's averaging 10.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.8 steals, 0.8 blocks and 1.0 3-pointers over his last five games.
Nov 7 - 10:56 PM

Aaron Gordon played 24 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday with nine points, four rebounds, four assists, one block and two 3-pointers.

Coach Frank Vogel was subbing him in and out a couple times the fourth quarter and Mario Hezonja was playing well tonight, so that explains the minutes dip. Gordon's rotation minutes usually have him at around 32 per game and hopefully these random subs don't continue. On the bright side, he's made 1.2 treys per game this season and is shooting the ball with confidence.
