Aaron Gordon (ankle) is available to play vs. Phoenix on Wednesday.
Gordon has missed the past two games and he's dealt with nagging injuries for most of his rookie season, so the Magic aren't likely to give him heavy minutes in his return. Andrew Nicholson loses the most with Gordon in the rotation, though Channing Frye may also see a slight dip in playing time. Mar 4 - 5:20 PM

Date:

Aaron Gordon (ankle) was limited at practice on Tuesday, and he is considered questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Suns.

The rookie has missed the Magic's last two games, and they have absolutely no reason to rush him back before he is 100 percent. Gordon is averaging just 15.5 minutes per game this season, so he won't be a reliable option in almost any league until his role grows significantly. Leave Gordon on the wire and expect Channing Frye and Andrew Nicholson to soak up his minutes if he remains on the shelf for Wednesday's game.
Mar 4 - 10:06 AM

Aaron Gordon (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Hornets.

With Gordon out, Channing Frye will likely see some extended minutes, and Moe Harkless will have the opportunity to enter the rotation. Frye will draw a favorable matchup against the Hornets, but his struggles with consistency throughout the season makes him a risky play in standard leagues.
Mar 1 - 4:36 PM

Aaron Gordon (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

With Gordon sidelined, Channing Frye will see a healthy heaping of minutes. However, with season averages of just 7.6 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.9 three-pointers per game, Frye can't be viewed as anything more than a 3-point specialist in very deep leagues.
Feb 27 - 10:39 AM

Aaron Gordon (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game against the Hawks.

Gordon left Wednesday's game with a sprained right ankle he suffered during a nasty fall and was unable to return. While the rookie can be left on the wire after averaging 3.6 points and 1.4 boards in 10.0 minutes over his last five games, Channing Frye would be in line for a bump in playing time if Gordon sits on Friday.
Feb 26 - 11:00 AM

Aaron Gordon (ankle) will not return on Wednesday due to a sprained right ankle.

He had a nasty fall in the game and asked to come out. Gordon's injury didn't look too bad, but he should be considered questionable to play on Friday. With Gordon out, it'll be more of Tobias Harris and Channing Frye.
Feb 25 - 8:33 PM

Aaron Gordon played just 17 minutes against the Wizards on Monday with five points and one steal.

The Magic went small tonight and it didn't really work out. Gordon does have a chance to put up numbers once the Magic fall out of the playoff race, but he's not on the fantasy radar in standard leagues due to poor shooting.
Feb 9 - 9:42 PM

Aaron Gordon will start against the Wizards on Monday in place of Tobias Harris (knee).

It'll be his sixth NBA start and he averaged 7.4 points, 4.8 boards, 0.6 assists, 0.2 blocks and 0.6 triples in 23.4 minutes per game in his previous five. Most of those starts were with Tobias Harris in the lineup, so Gordon has a great chance to top his career high in minutes (30) and other stats. It's an interesting matchup for him against Paul Pierce, so give him a look as a plug-and-play or a DFS cheap guy.
Feb 9 - 5:37 PM

Aaron Gordon returned from a foot injury and played 23 minutes against the Lakers on Friday, scoring seven points with two rebounds, two assists and one turnover.

Considering he missed Wednesday, this wasn't a bad sign from Gordon. The Magic are likely going to focus on their young players and he might still be getting more minutes than his allotment tonight. Still, he's not a great free throw shooter and will have too many slumps to be worth owning in most leagues.
Feb 6 - 10:09 PM

Aaron Gordon's foot is doing fine, and he will be available to play on Friday against the Lakers.

He was experiencing some soreness in his surgically-repaired left foot which caused him to miss Wednesday's game, but it's good to see the rookie avoid any additional time on the sidelines. Gordon is worth watching in deeper leagues due to the coaching change in Orlando, but owners in standard leagues can continue to monitor his progress from the waiver wire.
Feb 6 - 9:56 AM

Aaron Gordon will not play on Wednesday due to soreness in his surgically-repaired left foot.

Gordon said that he has "no concerns" about his foot but he'll soon see his surgeon for a scheduled checkup. He's been a shaky option even in deep leagues this year, and his latest setback is enough reason to leave him on the waiver wire.
Feb 4 - 7:07 PM

Aaron Gordon started and played 26 minutes in Monday's loss to the Thunder, scoring six points on 2-of-7 shooting with eight rebounds and two assists.

Gordon might one day develop the versatility that fantasy owners look for but currently he's much too inconsistent to rely on in standard formats. And with no guarantee that his numbers would translate with a full workload, his status as a stash isn't that great.
Feb 3 - 2:17 AM

Aaron Gordon played 30 minutes against the Mavericks on Saturday with 11 points, five rebounds and two 3-pointers.

It was a career high in minutes and he took advantage of Kyle O'Quinn not playing. Gordon has some potential for his ability to add defensive stats and the occasional trey, but the woeful foul shooting could be a bugaboo to his fantasy value. Give him a look in deep leagues.
Jan 31 - 10:29 PM

Aaron Gordon scored four points in 20 minutes against the Bucks on Thursday with five rebounds.

He was 2-of-4 from the line and that's expected to be a problem for Gordon. The rookie is shooting the ball well from the field at 59.4 percent on the season and he could be a nice contributor in blocks, steals and treys, so owners in deeper leagues should keep their eyes on him. He's a better player to own in head-to-head formats. Plus, Gordon would gain more value if Tobias Harris (knee) needs to miss time.
Jan 29 - 10:46 PM

Aaron Gordon started at small forward in Monday's loss to the Grizzlies, posting just seven points on 3-of-7 shooting with two rebounds and one assist in 21 minutes.

Gordon has a bright future in front of him and is one of the most athletic players in the league right now, but his redraft value is still dubious at best until he gives owners something to chew on.
