Gordon scored 32 points (11-20 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 7-7 FT) and added 12 rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 113-109 win over the Pistons. Gordon ended the season by matching his second-best scoring total. Gordon continued to improve throughout his third season, especially after the Magic traded away Serge Ibaka at the trade deadline, allowing Gordon to spend more time playing power forward. Since the trade, Gordon improved his per-game scoring, rebounding, steals, blocks, field goal percentage, and even free-throw percentage.
Gordon scored 22 points (9-18 FG, 4-7 3Pt) while adding 15 rebounds, five assists and two steals in 35 minutes during Saturday's 121-111 loss to the Nets. It's his second straight double-double and sixth of the season. Gordon is finishing his third NBA campaign with a flourish, averaging 19.8 points, 8.4 boards, 1.8 steals and 1.6 three-pointers over the last five games.
Gordon (shoulder) went off for 32 points (11-24 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 7-8 FT) to go with a season-high 16 rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal across 36 minutes in a 117-116 loss to the Celtics on Friday. Gordon's status was in question leading up to game time while he contended with a sore shoulder, but he showed no limitations while turning in his most jam-packed stat line of the season. Thanks to uncharacteristically strong performances from both the free-throw line and beyond the arc, Gordon was able to secure his third 30-point outing of the season. It was impact on the glass that was the more pleasant surprise, however. Fantasy owners had expected Gordon's rebound rate to jump after he transitioned to a starting role at power forward following the trade of Serge Ibaka shortly before the All-Star break, but he had pulled in no more than five boards in his preceding 12 contests. As such, Gordon will probably need to replicate his performance on the glass in Saturday's matchup with the Nets before fantasy owners can view him as a real asset in that category over the last handful of games on the season.
Gordon (shoulder) will play Friday against the Celtics, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports. Gordon tested his shoulder out prior to being counted in for Friday's contest, so apparently whatever he's dealing with isn't overly concerning. Considering Jeff Green (back) has already been ruled out of Friday's tilt, Gordon's presence will ensure the Magic isn't stretched too thin up front. However, if Gordon's shoulder discomfort flares up during the game, Mario Hezonja could see some minutes in his place.
Gordon is dealing with a sore shoulder and is considered a game-time decision for Friday's tilt with the Celtics, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports. Gordon may have hurt the shoulder in Wednesday's overtime loss to the Thunder, during which he contributed 13 points, five rebounds, four steals, one assist and one block over 41 minutes. While it doesn't sound as though Gordon's injury is a major concern, the Magic probably won't be willing to have him risk aggravating things further if he's still aching leading up to the 7:30 p.m. tip off. With Jeff Green (back) already ruled out of the contest, Mario Hezonja would likely handle most of the minutes at power forward if Gordon also remains unavailable. Bismack Biyombo may also take on some added playing time if coach Frank Vogel opts to roll out larger lineups featuring Biyombo alongside Nikola Vucevic in the frontcourt.
