Gordon mustered 17.6 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.3 assists across 58 games played with the Magic during the 2017-18 NBA season. This was Gordon's best season of his young, four-year career as he increased his points- and rebounds-per-game average greatly from last year. The former Arizona one-and-done was injury prone for most the season though and produced a career-worst 1.8 turnovers per game. There is debate whether the Magic will pick up Gordon's qualifying offer that is on the table for next year but regardless, the 21-year-old should be a significant contributor to any team in 2018-19.
Gordon will be on a minutes restriction for Wednesday's season finale against the Wizards, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports. Though coach Frank Vogel didn't go into specifics, he noted that Gordon would play "not big minutes". That doesn't come as too much of a surprise, as the team wants to limit Gordon's potential for injury in a potentially meaningless game. As a result, he makes for a risky DFS option. Mario Hezonja could benefit from Gordon's reduced workload.
Gordon recorded 12 points (5-14 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 31 minutes during Monday's 102-86 loss to the Bucks. Gordon saw 31 minutes of playing time Monday, a welcome sight for his owners. The silly season is upon us and with the resting of players a key issue when it comes to fantasy, Gordon has only missed one game since March 20. What happens for the final regular season game is anyone's guess but hopefully he will be rolled out as per normal.
Gordon recorded 16 points (6-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-5 FT), two rebounds, three assists, three steals and one blocked shot in 27 minutes during Sunday's 112-101 loss to the Raptors. Gordon unexpectedly returned from a calf injury to play a full complement of minutes in a losing effort. He is expected to end his fourth season with career bests in points, rebounds, assists and total minutes. Gordon will be a restricted free agent in the offseason but the Magic are expected to retain Gordon as the centerpiece of their offense.
Gordon (calf) has been cleared to play in Sunday's matchup with the Raptors, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports. Gordon was held out of Friday's game against the Hornets due to a calf strain, but it apparently wasn't anything overly serious considering he's back in the lineup Sunday. The big man figures to slot back in to his typical starting power forward role and at this point, the Magic aren't reporting any sort of restrictions. As a result, fantasy owners can go ahead activate Gordon, while his return will likely send Jamel Artis back to a bench role.
