Aaron Gordon's resurgence continued against the Rockets on Sunday as he posted 19 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, three steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer.
Gordon did not have his best night from the field (7-of-17 FG), but when he fills the boxes with steals and blocks that does not matter so much. There is no logical explanation for why he has suddenly turned things around, but its best to not fret over that, and just keep crossing your fingers that this can last for the rest of the year.

Aaron Gordon checked in with 15 points (6-for-15 shooting), 10 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in Friday's win over the Wolves.
Gordon is off to a decent start in March after tearing it up in February. If you have him on your roster just continue to ride the wave and hope it lasts until the season finishes.

Aaron Gordon (right knee inflammation) scored 11 points (5-of-10 from the field) with six rebounds, nine assists and two steals in 36 minutes on Wednesday.
Gordon took a back seat in scoring and played the facilitator role after returning from his one-game absence. Gordon was on a tear in the month of February, posting top-30 value per game in 9-cat leagues. He is a top-130 player on the season and was outside the top-200 in the month of January. He is likely to regress from his recent production, but he should produce top-75 value moving forward.

Aaron Gordon (right knee inflammation) is available to play against the Heat on Wednesday.
As expected, Gordon has been fully cleared to play against the Heat after a one-game absence. He has seen his value skyrocket over the past two month, providing top-40 value over that span. He’ll look to continue his hot stretch against a tough Heat defense.

Steve Clifford said this morning that Aaron Gordon has been fully cleared to play against the Heat on Wednesday.
This is excellent news as AG is likely to return after missing just one game. He has been playing really well the last month moving in the top-25 and owners can only hope that he will continue this kind of production until the end of the season.

In their preliminary injury report for Wednesday's game in Miami, the Magic have listed Aaron Gordon (right knee inflammation) and Gary Clark (left knee irritation) as questionable to play.
Gordon has been playing very well coming off the All-Star break but it looks like the injury might force him to miss more time. Clark started in his place on Monday but he failed to impress in 29 minutes and he is an afterthought in fantasy leagues.

Gary Clark started in place of Aaron Gordon (right knee inflammation) on Monday and finished his night with five points on 2-of-3 shooting, three rebounds, an assist, a block and a three in 29 minutes vs. the Blazers.
Clark won't likely help any fantasy teams even if he gets another start in Gordon's stead. He can be safely left on waivers.

Aaron Gordon (right knee inflammation) will not play during Monday's game.
Gary Clark will slot into the starting lineup against the Blazers. Gordon finished Friday's game with a triple-double before a less dominant performance on Saturday.

Aaron Gordon (right knee inflammation) is questionable for Monday's game against the Blazers.
It's a shame, as Gordon has been lights out over the last month. It's been a frustrating season overall and hopefully this injury doesn't add to that story. If he sits out tonight we should see more James Ennis, Khem Birch and Wes Iwundu, though nobody there really registers as a fantasy option.

Aaron Gordon scored seven points with six rebounds, six assists and one steal in 36 minutes on Saturday.
Gordon fell back to earth after posting a triple-double on Friday. He is a top-135 player on the season but is a top-25 player over the past month. Gordon will cool off a little but has a top-75 floor with upside moving forward.

Aaron Gordon recorded his first career triple-double in Friday's 136-125 victory over the Wolves, finishing with 17 points, 11 rebounds, 12 assists and two blocks in 41 minutes of floor time.
Gordon was stuffing the stat sheet on Friday and played 40+ minutes for the third straight game. About the only thing he struggled with was his shot from deep, going 1-for-6 on threes. Keep him entrenched in fantasy lineups the rest of the way with the Magic fighting for a spot in the playoffs.

Aaron Gordon was all over the floor on Wednesday, scoring 25 points on 9-of-14 shooting with 10 boards, six assists, one steal, three blocks on three triples in a 130-120 win vs. the Hawks.
Gordon is having one of the best stretches of his career in the month of February, averaging 19.9 points, 9.0 boards, 5.0 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.9 blocks and 2.0 threes while shooting .483 from the field. That across-the-board production has him inside the top-20 during that stretch. Gordon is still outside the top-120 on the season despite his epic February. He is a sell-high candidate, but should stay inside the top-75 ROS.

Aaron Gordon was in full attack mode on Monday, helping the Magic complete a stellar 115-113 comeback win over the Nets with 27 points on 11-of-16 shooting and a full stat line.
Gordon also hit three treys, grabbed 10 boards, dished out four assists and chipped in one steal and two blocks to the box in one of his better nights. The Magic were down 19 and Gordon's athleticism and aggressiveness was one of the reasons they were able to surmount such a lead. That said, this is more of a top-end performance from AG, so expect a less enthusiastic line in the near future.

Aaron Gordon checked several boxes in Friday's loss to the Mavs, posting 10 points (4-for-13 shooting), 12 rebounds, seven assists, two steals and a block across 35 minutes.
The shooting was rough for Gordon tonight, but the fact he was able to step up and contribute in other areas is a welcome sight. If you have Gordon you might as well hold and hope for the best.

The Magic tried mightily to trade forward Aaron Gordon before last week's deadline, according to veteran NBA reporter Sean Deveney.
The Warriors and the Suns were among the teams that spoke to the Magic but talks obviously didn’t materialize. Orlando is waiting for first-round pick Chuma Okeke as he recovers from ACL surgery, and his recovery could potentially spell the end of Gordon with the Magic. AG has taken a step back this year, sitting outside the top-150 in standard leagues but hopefully the All-Star break helps him get back on track.
