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.

Magic rookie Aaron Gordon made his first NBA start on Sunday, scoring nine points with four rebounds and one block in 21 minutes of action.

Gordon is a decent speculative add, but his minutes are intentionally being limited and his starting job isn't guaranteed. The good news is that the rebuilding Magic have every reason to ramp up his minutes as the season progresses and he's unlikely to hit the rookie wall since he missed 32 games while recovering from foot surgery. Don't cut anyone valuable to get him, but there are worse guys to stash at the end of your bench.
Jan 25 - 8:58 PM

Aaron Gordon will enter the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. Indiana, sending Devyn Marble to the bench.

It was really only a matter of time until Marble was sent to the bench, as he's simply not a starting-caliber guy in the league. Gordon will draw his first career-start tonight, but with a tough matchup against the Pacers, he's not a great option in daily leagues.
Jan 25 - 4:23 PM

Head coach Jacque Vaughn said that Aaron Gordon's minutes will not increase markedly for the time being.

Gordon just recently returned to action from a serious foot injury, so the Magic are going to play it safe with their prized rookie. He should see more playing time later in the season, but Gordon is still off the radar in standard leagues until further notice.
Jan 21 - 10:52 AM

Aaron Gordon (foot) said that he felt "great" in his first game back since his injury.

"You realize that when you're not playing, how much you miss it," he said. "And then when I got back out there, it's fun. I learned a lot [when I was injured]. I just move better without the ball now." Gordon had eight points and three boards in 12 minutes off the bench.
Jan 19 - 9:13 AM

Magic rookie Aaron Gordon (foot) returned on Sunday with eight points, one 3-pointer, three rebounds and one assist in 12 minutes off the bench.

Gordon was averaging 5.8 points and 3.0 rebounds in 15 minutes per game before getting injured. That sets a reasonable near-term expectation, though his minutes should increase with the Magic prioritizing player development in a lost season. For now, Gordon belongs on the waiver wire in all standard leagues.
Jan 18 - 8:50 PM

Aaron Gordon (foot) will be available to play for Sunday's game vs. the Thunder.

Andrew Nicholson has been placed on the inactive list to make room for Gordon on the active roster, however, Gordon's minutes will likely be limited and he's not a great play in most leagues with a tough matchup vs. OKC. He belongs on the waiver wire in standard leagues.
Jan 18 - 4:20 PM

Aaron Gordon (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Thunder.

While he is cleared to play, the Magic will likely keep him on the sidelines until his conditioning is where it needs to be. Gordon does have potential, but he doesn't project to have a large enough role in Orlando to matter in most leagues. Owners can simply monitor Gordon from the waiver wire.
Jan 18 - 1:08 PM

Aaron Gordon will not play on Friday against the Grizzlies.

He is cleared to play, but hasn't gone through 5-on-5 work yet. Gordon is not going to be great in percentages, so his fantasy ceiling will be low. Channing Frye should get a few extra minutes tonight.
Jan 16 - 5:31 PM

Aaron Gordon (foot) has been cleared to play, but it's unclear if he will be activated for Friday's game against Memphis.

Magic head coach Jacque Vaughn said he hasn't yet determined his active list for tonight's game, but with a tough matchup against the Grizzlies, Gordon wouldn't be a great play in most leagues even if available. Stay tuned.
Jan 16 - 10:48 AM

Aaron Gordon (foot) has been ramping up his activities and was seen sprinting and shooting jumpers prior to Saturday's game in Portland.

Gordon made the most of his time on the sidelines by continually working on his shooting mechanics and bulking up his upper body. He is still said to be targeting a return in February, and the Magic will be eager to get him back in their rotation for his toughness and athleticism. Regardless, the Magic are obviously going to ease him back into action upon his return so he is nothing more than a stash in deeper leagues for now.
Jan 11 - 12:37 PM

Aaron Gordon (foot) is progressing nicely, and didn't need to have his foot checked out as originally planned.

He has even began traveling with the team and is doing non-impact activities, so things are looking great for the rookie. Gordon is still not expected to return until February, and is only worth owing in dynasty leagues for now. Owners in standard leagues can look elsewhere.

Aaron Gordon (foot) is no longer in a walking boot.

Gordon is still a ways away from his targeting February return, but this is a step in the right direction as the rookie rehabs his surgically-repaired left foot. While Gordon is a solid stash in dynasty leagues, fantasy owners in standard leagues can feel free to focus their attention elsewhere.
Tue, Dec 23, 2014 10:46:00 AM

Aaron Gordon (foot) will get an X-ray on Thursday to check on the progress of his surgically-repaired left foot.

Gordon's X-ray comes a month after his foot surgery and he's still targeting a mid-February return to the court. The rookie will likely be eased into the Magic's rotation upon his return, so fantasy owners can feel free to leave him on waiver wires.
