Gordon underwent surgery on his broken foot in November and is expected to be out until the All-Star break. Before suffering the injury, Gordon averaged 5.8 points and 3.0 rebounds in 11 games.
Gordon will be examined by a surgeon just after the first of the year. He could begin his rehab if it is determined that the injury is healing well.
"I'm on the road to recovery now," Gordon added.
Coach Jacque Vaughn praised Gordon before Wednesday's game. "I love his game," Vaughn said. "There's different segments of the game that are being pushed forward, I think, and I think energy-and-effort guys who bring it every night [are one of them]. He fits into that category. That's a skill these days now, where that used to be the 15th guy on the bench. That's a skill. He brings that on an everyday basis, and we miss that. We miss his versatility of guarding multiple positions ... So I look forward to him coming back, and I've told him I miss him, too."
Gordon has averaged 5.8 points and 3.0 rebounds while shooting 58.1 percent in 11 games.
Gordon will be re-evaluated in six-to-eight weeks to see how the foot is healing. His timetable for return will depend upon the progress of his rehabilitation. Gordon has aberaged 5.8 points on 58.1 percent shooting in 11 games.
Gordon averaged 5.8 points, 3.0 rebounds through his first 11 games of the season.
This comes as a crushing blow for the Magic, who just got Victor Oladipo back from a facial fracture, and already have Kyle O'Quinn (sprained ankle) and Devyn Marble (sprained rotator cuff) sidelined.
