Aaron Gordon scored 16 points with four rebounds, two assists and one block in 30 minutes against the Pistons on Friday.
His hip injury didn't seem to bother him and he continues to look more comfortable as a power forward. Since the break, Gordon's seen a major increase in efficiency and value while also seeing a bump in rebounding, blocks and getting to the line. He's still likely just to peak as a mid-round guy, but at least he's playing well enough to be owned these days. Mar 24 - 9:35 PM

Date:

Coach Frank Vogel confirmed that Aaron Gordon (sore left hip) will play Friday vs. the Pistons.

There wasn't much doubt surrounding Gordon's availability, as he hasn't missed a game since February 11th. After a strong start to the month, in which he averaged 17.0 points and 6.1 rebounds over the first seven games in March, Gordon is averaging just 11.8 points and 3.5 rebounds over his last four contests. Hopefully, Gordon will be able to get back on track Friday night against Detroit.
Mar 24 - 11:16 AM

Aaron Gordon was quiet in 29 minutes vs. the Hornets, scoring seven points on 3-of-8 shooting with one 3-pointer, four rebounds, two assists and no defensive stats.

Jeff Green (back spasms) was out tonight, which could have opened up more playing time for Gordon, who came in averaging 29.5 minutes in March. Instead, Gordon played his usual role and it was Mario Hezonja (23 minutes) gaining the most in Green's absence. Despite tonight's disappointing line, AG continues to hold low-end value in most leagues.
Mar 22 - 9:37 PM

Aaron Gordon scored 17 points with four rebounds, one steal, four blocks and one 3-pointer against the Suns on Friday.

That's more like it. His Arizona Wildcats were able to get the win and the Magic were also able to bear down in Phoenix tonight. Gordon continues to play better at the four and the Magic really pushed the ball. After the game, Gordon said he liked the pace on the Suns broadcast, so maybe coach Frank Vogel can help him out and create a better fantasy offense for him. Maybe this game can get him going to set up his three games next week.
Mar 18 - 2:02 AM

Aaron Gordon hit 2-of-7 shots for six points and three rebounds in 21 minutes of Thursday's 122-92 blowout loss to the Warriors.

This game was over after the first quarter and the bench for both teams played a big role in the 30-point blowout. Gordon had scored in double figures in all eight of his March games coming into this one, but the Magic simply ran into a buzzsaw.
Mar 17 - 12:54 AM

Aaron Gordon scored 20 points with five rebounds in 28 minutes against the Hornets on Friday.

He was 8-of-14 from the field and didn't add any other stats besides two turnovers tonight. Gordon's efficiency is looking a lot better thanks to getting to the rim, which has helped him make 48.8 percent from the field and 81.8 percent from the line in his previous seven games since the break. He's been a ninth-round value in standard leagues since the break, which is about right going forward.
Mar 10 - 9:32 PM

Aaron Gordon scored 17 points on 8-of-15 shooting in Monday's loss to the Knicks.

AG added five rebounds, four assists, one block and one triple in 30 minutes. He's loving life as the starting power forward and his value has seen a nice boost since the All-Star break -- he was averaging 14.6 points, 7.6 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.6 blocks and 0.6 steals in his previous five games. The peripheral stats still aren't there, but Gordon looks like he will hit his stride just in time for the fantasy playoffs.
Mar 6 - 10:15 PM

Aaron Gordon finished with 15 points, 11 rebounds, three assists and a steal in 35 minutes Sunday against the Wizards.

Gordon has scored 10 or more points in 32 games this season. He is averaging 18.0 points and 10.5 rebounds over his past two outings. His three double-digit scoring games in March already equal his total from the month of February. Gordon's fantasy value continues to trend in the right direction.
Mar 5 - 7:39 PM

Aaron Gordon scored 21 points with 10 rebounds in Friday's 110-99 win over the Heat.

This was just his third double-double of the season, but more should be on the way with his move to power forward. The Magic have so much more floor spacing with Gordon at the four and it's one of the reasons why the Magic scored a season-high 62 points in the paint tonight. Gordon finished 9-of-17 from the field in 32 minutes with one assist, one block and one steal, but his fantasy value is quickly trending in the right direction with the fantasy playoffs looming.
Mar 3 - 9:38 PM

Aaron Gordon played through a bruised right quad on Wednesday, but he finished with just 10 points and five boards in 24 foul-plagued minutes.

The Knicks went small tonight with Kristaps Porzingis, Carmelo Anthony and Lance Thomas in the frontcourt, which negated Gordon's typical speed advantage vs. bigger fours. He played well vs. the Hawks on Saturday (18 points, three boards, three assists) and the Magic are devoted to his development. The fouls were the biggest issue, so owners should try to hang in there if not already in the fantasy playoffs.
Mar 1 - 10:16 PM

Aaron Gordon (right quad) will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

He was listed as questionable in the game notes, but he'll out there tonight without a minutes restriction, so owners shouldn't hesitate to get him active. Elfrid Payton, Terrence Ross, Evan Fournier and Nikola Vucevic will join him in the starting five.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Even with Gordon active, there are still a few viable DFS targets on the Orlando side. Terrence Ross has chucked up at least 15 FG attempts in his first two games with the team, and he figures to continue to be a big part of their offense going forward. While he's not going to give you much outside of points, he's a solid punt play on sites that require you to roster multiple SFs. Nikola Vucevic is very intriguing against a shorthanded Knicks front-court - pivoting to him off Kyle O'Quinn in GPPs has merit.

Aaron Gordon (right quad contusion) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Knicks.

Gordon unexpectedly popped up as questionable in the game notes released on Tuesday afternoon. It's unfortunate because it seemed he had moved past a foot injury that was bothering him before the All-Star break and was settling in now that he was playing his natural position of power forward. We will have to wait for additional info from the team or coach Frank Vogel before getting an idea of whether or not the injury will sideline Gordon going forward.

Magic coach Frank Vogel finally admitted that Aaron Gordon is better at power forward.

It only took Vogel four months, but better late than never. "Everybody’s now in their right position, quite frankly," Vogel said. "I think Aaron being a four is better for him. He did well at the three defensively, but he’s better at the four." Gordon said there's better floor spacing with him at the four and added that he feels like the team is quicker. Gordon had 18 points on 7-of-11 shooting with three rebounds, three assists, two steals and one turnover in 24 minutes against the Hawks on Saturday, so his fantasy arrow is pointing up for the final couple months of the season as he's going to be getting a lot more easy looks around the rim.
Feb 27 - 10:44 AM

Aaron Gordon made 7-of-11 from the field for 18 points with three rebounds, three assists, two steals and one turnover in 24 minutes against the Hawks on Saturday.

The shift to power forward has been huge for him, especially when it comes to shot selection. A whopping 65.0 percent of his shots have come from within three feet, which explains why he's made 55.0 percent from the field in those two games. This move could save his fantasy value going forward and should start finally trending up after a terrible start.
Feb 25 - 9:50 PM

Aaron Gordon started at power forward against the Blazers on Thursday with nine points, nine boards, two assists and two blocks in 29 minutes.

Yeah, this wasn't a great game, but there are some positives here. He didn't take any two-point attempts longer than six feet in this game and he wasn't asked to do too much in halfcourt sets. Before the game, coach Frank Vogel said he liked how Gordon looked at power forward last year, which suggests this move should stick. He should be able to revive his value in standard leagues, but his upside isn't too high.
