Aaron Gordon had one of his best performances of the season during a 105-103 win over the Celtics on Saturday, scoring 28 points with 12 rebounds, two assists, one block, six turnovers and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.
He was 13-of-13 from the line for his most makes at the charity stripe in his NBA career, and he was 7-of-14 from the field, as well. Gordon's shooting slumps have been far too frequent and he was sitting at 39.1 FG% in his previous January games. He has missed a lot of shots in the paint this season when he's cold, so maybe he can draw some more fouls. Gordon still has a long way to go to get to where he should be based on his ADP.

Aaron Gordon scored 18 points with a career-high nine assists, seven rebounds and one block in 37 minutes on Wednesday.

Gordon made 8-of-14 shots and he committed just one turnover tonight, resulting in a terrific 9-cat fantasy output. He hit 41.9 points in most DFS formats, and the next evolution in his fantasy value will be increased efficiency -- he finished December shooting 39.3% with a mere 0.5 steals and 0.5 blocks. Elite players don't go an entire month with such paltry offerings.
Jan 2 - 11:00 PM

Aaron Gordon notched his ninth double-double of the season on Sunday with 22 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, one 3-pointer, one block and two turnovers in 34 minutes.

Gordon got off to a quick start, making some nice plays in transition, and he also threw down a nasty, reverse And-1 slam early in the game (link below). It was a phenomenal all-around effort from Gordon, who also held Blake Griffin to just 4-of-10 shooting, and this was a nice bounce-back performance after he was held to single digits in the scoring department on Friday.

Aaron Gordon was under the weather on Thursday, but coach Steve Clifford said Gordon is expected to play Friday vs. Toronto.

Gordon has played a bit better of late, but remains mired in a slump. He has scored fewer than 15 points in seven straight contests and over that seven-game stretch, he is averaging 11.0 points while shooting just 33.8 percent from the floor and 68.2 percent from the free-throw stripe.

Aaron Gordon made 5-of-10 from the field for 11 points with nine rebounds, two assists, one block, two steals and one 3-pointer in 42 minutes during a 122-120 overtime loss to the Suns on Wednesday.

He finally shot the ball well, which has been a major problem this month with a 36.7 FG% in December heading into tonight. The big reason why is he's made just 36.2% of his shots in the paint over that span, which is unusual for a guy who made 57% in the paint last season. He has been disappointing this season, but he still has a shot to get it going.

Aaron Gordon played 33 minutes Sunday vs. the Heat, finishing with 14 points (4-of-7 FG, 4-of-4 FT), six rebounds, four assists, one steal, one blocked shot and two 3-pointers.

Gordon managed to shoot better than 50% from the field for the first time since Nov. 30, so hopefully this is the start of a turnaround. The Arizona product was 2-of-4 from beyond the arc Sunday, and he's still on pace to produce the best season of his career in that regard. A career 31.9% shooter from three, Gordon is making 37.8% of his attempts this season.

Aaron Gordon made 4-of-10 from the field for 12 points during a loss to the Spurs on Wednesday, adding nine rebounds, seven assists and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

He went scoreless in the first half as the Magic trailed 22 points at half. The seven dimes are tied for his season-high and just one off his career best. Gordon's assists have been on the rise with 4.3 per game in December even before today, but of course he's back to missing shots all over the place with only a 37.2 FG%. If he can put it all together, he could have serious value, but it hasn't happened this season yet.

Aaron Gordon didn't have a great showing on Saturday, hitting 3-of-7 shots on his way to eight points, two 3-pointers, two rebounds, three assists and one steal in 28 minutes.

Gordon seriously struggled for Orlando during their trip to Mexico City, connecting on just 27.8% of his shots, while being held to single digits in the scoring department. He got into some early foul trouble in this one, was scoreless through the first half of action, and contributed six of Orlando’s 22 turnovers. He’s slumping right now, but he should be able to get things back on track on Wednesday with a favorable matchup against the Spurs.

Aaron Gordon scored 10 points (4-of-15 FG) with three rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes Monday against the Mavericks.

After four straight games in which he scored at least 18 points, Gordon (like fellow front court starter Nikola Vucevic) had a tough time getting anything going against the Mavericks. Nevertheless, the athletic forward, who's made strides as a perimeter shooter, is 12-of-27 (44.4%) from three over his last five games after going 2-of-6 from deep Monday night.

Aaron Gordon scored 20 points with 14 rebounds, four assists, one block, one steal and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes during a 112-90 loss to the Pacers on Friday.

It's his second best rebounding night of the season, but he already has two 20-10 games in three December outings after failing to get any in November. Gordon was expected to put up better rebounding and defensive stats this season, and so far he's been in the same neighborhood with 7.5 boards, 0.9 blocks and 1.0 steals. He's shooting the ball much better from the field this year and most owners should be satisfied with his output to date.

Aaron Gordon had 20 points, 13 rebounds, five assists, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers on 7-of-16 shooting in 35 minutes of Tuesday's 105-90 win over the Heat.

His back injury is apparently already a distant memory as he had one of his best games of the season in just his second night back after missing a game with lower back tightness. None of his numbers represented season highs, but as far as putting it all together in one game, tonight's effort might be his best of the year. The Magic only play two more times this week, but Gordon's off to a great start in a short week.

Aaron Gordon (back) scored 18 points with six rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes against the Suns on Friday.

It helped that the Suns let him get some easy buckets, but 34 minutes is a good sign after missing Wednesday due to a back issue. This is also Gordon's first noteworthy back injury in his NBA career, so hopefully he's over it now. Gordon is back to making his free throws again at 77% and he's over 50 percent from the field, so he's back on track and could become a top-50 player going forward.

Aaron Gordon (back) will start on Friday against the Suns.

He went through some warm-up prep and should be ready to go. Coach Steve Clifford said Gordon looked stiff on Thursday, but he was able to do some shooting and work in the weight room. Gordon gets a great matchup in a homecoming game as a product of University of Arizona. Jonathan Isaac will move to the bench, but he still has plenty of value.
Fri, Nov 30, 2018 08:03:00 PM

Coach Steve Clifford said that Aaron Gordon (back) would be a game-time decision Friday vs. the Suns.

Gordon did not play Wednesday night against the Blazers. He was able to do some work in the weight room and some shooting on Thursday, but is clearly less than 100 percent. The Magic don't play again until a back-to-back on Tuesday and Wednesday, so Orlando may choose to give him a few extra days of rest. If Gordon is ruled out, Jonathan Isaac would be the primary beneficiary. Jarell Martin would also see an uptick in playing time.

Coach Steve Clifford said Aaron Gordon (back) did work in the weight room and some shooting on Thursday.

"He still looks a little stiff, so I don’t know about tomorrow," Clifford said. Gordon is listed as questionable for Friday against the Suns, and he could be a game-time decision. The University of Arizona product may have some added motivation to suit up, but it doesn't sound like he's 100 percent yet. If he's out, Jonathan Isaac will get another start after two great games while Jarell Martin would be in the rotation. Terrence Ross and Jonathon Simmons would also play more.
