Gordon (concussion) intimated that he's hopeful to return to action Wednesday against the Clippers, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports. "Of course, we'll see what we can do," Gordon said Monday. "I'm showing no symptoms and I feel good, but I'll leave it up to the doctors."
Gordon sustained the concussion during Friday's game against Denver and was held out of Saturday's matchup with the Hawks. He's currently going through the league's concussion protocol, but with off days Monday and Tuesday, the hope is that he'll be cleared by Wednesday night. That said, Gordon acknowledged that he's suffered "four or five" concussions in his lifetime, so the Magic certainly won't rush him back to game action.
Gordon will not play in Saturday's game against the Hawks after suffering a concussion during Friday's loss to the Hornets, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
The concussion is apparently considered mild according to Robbins, though Gordon's still required to enter the NBA's concussion protocol. He'll now have to pass a series of tests and be seemed symptom-free before returning to action. With Jonathan Isaac (ankle) also out Saturday, look for Marreese Speights and Mario Hezonja to see increased run at power forward.
Gordon suffered a concussion during Friday's game against the Nuggets and will not return, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Gordon knocked his head on Gary Harris' shoulder while driving to the hoop in the third quarter, and while he was initially allowed to stay in the game after being treated for a cut on his lower lip, he was replaced shortly afterwards and subsequently diagnosed with a concussion. Gordon compiled 14 points (5-12 FG), three rebounds and two assists across 29 minutes before exiting. Consider him highly questionable for Saturday's game against the Hawks.
Gordon scored 29 points (12-23 FG, 5-11 3PT, 0-1 FT) to go along with seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks over 37 minutes in Friday's 133-112 loss to Golden State.
A game removed from scoring 40 points, Gordon backed it up with 29 points on Friday. Shooting 43.8 percent from beyond the arc prior to tip-off, the forward led Orlando's offense by benefit of sinking 5-of-11 three pointers. Gordon is in the midst of a seven game stretch in which is averaging an impressive 21.5 points and 9.2 rebounds.
Gordon totaled 40 points (13-23 FG, 6-12 3Pt, 8-11 FT), 15 rebounds, four assists, four steals and one block across 44 minutes during a 121-108 win over the Thunder on Wednesday.
Gordon picked up his second 40-point game this season in a phenomenal all-around effort. The six three-pointers made, 15 boards and four steals all marked season highs. Prior to his last three games, Gordon had been struggling from downtown, as he shot 22.5 percent from three-point land over a seven-game stretch. That has changed, however, as Gordon has gone 12-of-23 from beyond the arc over his last three outings.
