Aaron Gordon (sore left Achilles tendon) is being considered a game-time decision for Friday's game against the Heat.
For what it's worth, Coach Steve Clifford did say that Gordon gives the team a potential defensive counter to the Heat's Jimmy Butler. He could be out there tonight, particularly now that defensive stalwart Jonathan Isaac is out two months with a knee sprain and contusion. Gordon is nowhere near Isaac's level on that end, but perhaps he may inherit a larger piece of the pie offensively. We know Gordon's fantasy game is lacking, but the bump in volume could catapult him up the rankings.
