Aaron Gordon played just 16 minutes in Friday’s loss to the Suns, scoring four points on 1-of-3 shooting with two rebounds and that’s it.
Ouch. This is why we’ve been tentative with declaring Gordon a breakout guy or even a win for owners that added him just yet. Scott Skiles clearly wasn’t happy with this loss and Gordon’s minutes where the only starters’ minutes to take a real hit. Ersan Ilyasova logged 20 minutes and hit just 2-of-14 shots for five points, but did grab 12 boards with a steal and block. Owners should hold onto Gordon and see where this goes, but hopefully he can get back to 30 minutes a night with mid-round potential.
