Gordon finished Friday's Game 3 loss to Phoenix with just four points (2-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt) and four rebounds in 36 minutes.
To be fair to Gordon, a lot of his defensive contributions don't show up in the box score, but the forward has been a disappointment on the offensive end since coming over from Orlando. In the postseason (10 games), Gordon is averaging just 10.5 points on 43.2 percent shooting while struggling to find his role in the Nikola Jokic-led offense. In Games 2 and 3 against Phoenix, Gordon has totaled only 10 points and five rebounds to go with five turnovers in 56 minutes.
Gordon finished with 18 points (8-14 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, three steals and two assists in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 122-105 loss to Phoenix.
Gordon stepped up for the Nuggets on both ends of the floor but unfortunately saw his efforts go to waste in what was a game they certainly could have won. Since arriving in Denver, Gordon has struggled to have a consistent impact, highlighted by his declining fantasy numbers. That said, he can be an influential player thanks to his athleticism and speed, something the Nuggets are going to need more of if they are to topple the surging Suns.
Gordon provided 13 points (4-9 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-6 FT), six rebounds and two assists across 28 minutes in Monday's 128-109 win over the Trail Blazers.
Damian Lillard started Game 2 where he left off and scored 32 of his 42 points in the first half. Coach Michael Malone then made the shrewd move of assigning the 6-foot-8 Gordon to defend him. Gordon was in Lillard's face the rest of the evening and slashed his production in the second half. Although it's impossible to shut down a player like Lillard consistently, we will probably see Gordon defending Lillard moving forward.
Gordon amassed 16 points (7-16 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 0-2 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one block in 28 minutes during Saturday's 123-109 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Gordon, playing in his first playoff game for the Nuggets, came away with a serviceable, yet unspectacular, line. The flaws in his overall game were once again on display, as he failed to make either of his free throws while adding very little in terms of peripheral production. If the Nuggets are to turn things around against an experienced Trail Blazers outfit, they are going to need Gordon to step things up on both ends of the floor.
Gordon managed two points (1-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and two rebounds in 12 minutes during Sunday's 132-116 loss to the Blazers.
The 25-year-old returned to the court Sunday after missing Friday's game due to rest purposes to score just two points on four attempts. None of the Nuggets' starters played above 20 minutes, so the low-production game from Gordon isn't a surprise. Before Sunday's game, he was averaging 14.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.3 steals while shooting 57.6 percent from the field over his last three games. The seven-year forward has been decent since being traded to Denver back on March 25, averaging 10.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 0.7 steals over his last 25 games. The Nuggets will need his versatility heading into their playoff series matchup against the Blazers.
Gordon (rest) is unavailable Friday at Detroit, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.
The 25-year-old played 29 and 30 minutes in the past two games and will take a seat Friday to manage a calf injury. JaMychal Green and Shaquille Harrison should see increased run with Gordon and Paul Millsap (rest) sidelined.
Gordon totaled 15 points (6-10 FG, 2-2 FT, 1-2 3Pt), four assists, three rebounds and one steal in 30 minutes during Thursday's 114-103 win over the Timberwolves.
Gordon's efficient, well-rounded game was just what the Nuggets needed Thursday. Without Michael Porter (rest) and Jamal Murray (knee), the Nuggets relied on a heavy dose of efficient scoring from their big lineup of Gordon, Nikola Jokic and JaVale McGee. With Thursday's outing, Gordon has now scored in the double digits over his last three games and is shooting 57.6 percent from the field during that stretch.
Gordon accumulated 17 points (8-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists and two steals in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 117-112 win over the Hornets.
The 25-year-old returned to action after missing Saturday's game due to a bruised calf to post his 11th double-digit scoring output since joining the Nuggets back on March 28. Before Tuesday's game, Gordon was averaging just 6.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.7 assists with little else in 26.3 minutes over his last six games. The seventh-year forward will look to build on Tuesday's impressive performance Thursday on the road against the Timberwolves.
Gordon (calf) has been cleared to play Tuesday against the Hornets.
Gordon was held out of Saturday's loss to Brooklyn with a bruised calf, but he was never expected to miss more than a game or two. After entering Tuesday with a "probable" tag, the wing will be back in the lineup as Denver looks to snap a two-game skid.
Gordon (calf) is probable for Tuesday's game at Charlotte, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.
The 25-year-old was a late scratch for Saturday's contest versus Brooklyn with tightness in his right calf, but his absence is expected to be limited to the one game. Prior to sitting out Saturday, Gordon averaged 6.2 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 25.8 minutes over the previous five games.
Gordon won't play Saturday against the Nets due to right calf tightness.
It's unclear when he suffered the injury, but the 25-year-old was scratched about 30 minutes prior to Saturday's opening tip. Paul Millsap and JaMychal figures to see increased minutes with Gordon sidelined.
Gordon scored 15 points (6-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-3 FT) to go along five five rebounds, two assists and one steal across 22 minutes in Monday's win over the Grizzlies.
Even in the absence of Will Barton (hamstring) and Monte Morris (hamstring), Gordon received only 22 minutes. However, he was aggressive with his shot while on the floor and scored efficiently to post double-digit points for only the fifth time in his last 12 games. The rest of his box score has also been unremarkable in that span, as he's averaging 4.8 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 0.7 steals.
Gordon had 16 points (7-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds and three assists across 27 minutes in Wednesday's win over Miami.
Gordon ended just one rebound shy of putting up his first double-double since joining the Nuggets, but he still found a way to contribute on both ends of the court. Gordon's numbers have not been great over the last few games, however, with four single-digit scoring performances over his last six contests. He is averaging 10.2 points despite shooting 52.3 percent from the field in that span.
Gordon ended with 11 points (5-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt), two assists, one rebound and one block in 31 minutes during Friday's 121-119 victory over the Spurs.
Gordon continues to log heavy minutes for his new team, but the lack of production is concerning. While he has had a few solid performances, it is safe to say his fantasy value has taken a hit since he left Orlando. He is fine to have at the back end of your roster, but for those looking for upside, it could be time to move on.
Gordon totaled nine points (4-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three assists, two rebounds, two steals and a block in a 106-96 victory over the Spurs on Wednesday.
Gordon had his second consecutive quiet game on the offensive end but was able to pick up solid defensive stats. It was the forward's eighth game of the season with at least one steal and one block. Since joining the Nuggets, Gordon is averaging 12.5 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.2 steals per game.
Gordon finished with 24 points (10-13 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-5 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 35 minutes during Sunday's 119-109 victory over the Magic.
Gordon lined up against his former team for the first time and provided a reminder of what he's capable of doing. Sunday's outing was easily his best performance since joining the Nuggets and given his projected role, this could also be his best game for Denver all season. He remains a worthy option in 12-team leagues, but going 10-of-13 from the field isn't going to happen all too often, so fantasy managers shouldn't increase their expectations for Gordon in light of Sunday's contest.
Gordon scored six points (3-4 FG) to go along with four rebounds, one assist and one steal in a 104-95 victory over the 76ers on Tuesday.
Gordon had a quiet game on offense in his second game with the Nuggets, matching a season-low number of shot attempts. Despite the lack of offensive production, the forward recorded a team-high plus-19 during his 24 minutes of action. Gordon's usage will take a hit with Denver having a plethora of scoring options, but he should continue to be a solid fantasy player on his new team.
Gordon posted 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt), two rebounds, an assist and a steal across 21 minutes in Sunday's 126-102 win over the Hawks.
The Nuggets wasted no time in integrating Gordon, and his presence seemed to have a positive effect. He developed a quick rapport with Nikola Jokic, who got the ball to Gordon often. Gordon's arrival will have a ripple effect on a few players on the roster, including Paul Millsap and JaMychal Green. Unless Gordon is demoted into more of a sixth-man role, Millsap and Green's usage will take a considerable hit.
Gordon will start Sunday's game against the Hawks, Harrison Wind of DNVR Sports reports.
Set to make his Nuggets debut, Gordon will start at one forward spot alongside Michael Porter Jr., while veteran Paul Millsap moves to the bench. This is likely the lineup coach Mike Malone will roll with going forward, but Gordon could also spend some time working as more of a playmaker on the second unit.
Gordon will be available to make his Nuggets debut Sunday against Atlanta.
With the trade official and Gordon having passed through health protocols, he'll be available to make his first appearance with his new team. It's unclear if Denver will use Gordon as a starter or off the bench, but he could be somewhat limited Sunday as he integrates himself with a new roster. Eventually, Gordon figures to settle in as Denver's third or fourth option on offense, while serving as the Nuggets' most versatile defender.
