    Aaron Gordon (left hamstring strain) has left the Orlando bubble due to his ongoing injury and the events of the past few days.

    Gordon suffered the injury on August 5 and has been unable to make it back to the court. The Magic could have used his talents on the floor during their series against the Bucks, although it is unlikely to have changed the current trajectory. Gordon is no stranger to injuries and hamstrings can be tricky to manage. Given the upcoming layoff, he should be able to put this behind him as he prepares for next season.

    Aaron Gordon (left hamstring strain) is listed as out for Game 5 on Wednesday.

    This isn't a shocking development after head coach Steve Clifford admitted that Gordon cannot run at full speed yet. He hasn't played since August 5. Gary Clark will again feature in the starting lineup.

    Aaron Gordon (left hamstring strain) is listed as questionable for Game 5 against the Bucks on Wednesday, though Steve Clifford reveals that he isn't yet able to sprint.

    "He's better than he was. He just can't run — you know, sprint — up and down the court." Clifford also said that they don't want Gordon to risk a more serious injury by compensating for his hamstring, so despite the questionable tag it seems unlikely that he'll be able to play tomorrow. Gary Clark will make yet another start if Gordon can't go.

    Aaron Gordon (hamstring) has been ruled out for Monday’s Game 4 against Milwaukee.

    Gordon has been working his way back into game-shape after missing the team’s last seven games. Gordon will be missed as the Magic attempt to knot the series at two games apiece. Gary Clark will remain in the starting lineup in AG’s absence.

    Aaron Gordon (left hamstring strain) is questionable to play in Game 4 on Monday.

    Gordon has yet to play in the postseason and his return would be a big lift to a Magic squad that is trying to tie up their series with the top-seeded Bucks. Gary Clark has played admirably in place of Gordon and will start again if AG can't return tomorrow.

    Gary Clark continues to start for the Magic but managed only serviceable production in 35 minutes on Saturday, compiling six points on 2-of-4 shooting, along with eight rebounds, three assists and two steals.

    With Aaron Gordon (strained left hamstring) continuing to work his way back to game-shape, Clark remains the starter for the Magic. While his playing time has been relatively consistent, his production tells another story. The Magic are going to have to pull a rabbit out of a hat if they are to extend the series beyond five games, although it is hard to see Clark playing a major role, no matter the outcome.

    Aaron Gordon (left hamstring strain) will not play on Saturday.

    Gordon will have missed the first three games of Orlando's series with Milwaukee. We'll see if he's ready to return for Monday's Game 4. Gary Clark will continue to start in the meantime.

    Aaron Gordon (left hamstring strain) is questionable to play in Saturday's Game 3.

    Gordon was a game-time decision for Game 2 but ultimately sat. Orlando's series with the top-seeded Bucks is knotted at one apiece and the Magic are unlikely to make more noise without one of their top players. Gary Clark has performed admirably while starting in place of Gordon but doesn't have the same offensive upside.

    Aaron Gordon (hamstring) has been listed as questionable for Thursday's Game 2 against the Bucks.

    Gordon has missed the Magic's last five games with a hamstring strain and has been working his way back to action. He was a game-time decision for Game 1 before ultimately sitting out the series opener. He participated in drills during Wednesday's practice and the Magic will hope to have AG back on the court as they try to take an improbable 2-0 series lead.

    Aaron Gordon (strained left hamstring) was able to play 2-on-2 after the Magic practiced on Wednesday, but his status for Game 2 won't be determined until Thursday morning.

    Gordon missed Tuesday's opener against the Bucks, but the Magic would love to have him as they attempt to take a 2-0 series lead. If not, Gary Clark should make another appearance in the starting lineup.

    Aaron Gordon (strained left hamstring) is officially questionable for Game 2 against the Bucks on Thursday.

    The Magic surprised the Bucks and were able to steal Game 1 but they will need AG if they plan on completing the upset. Steve Clifford remained optimistic about Gordon’s chances at playing in Game 2 and hopefully the athletic forward will be able to join his teammates soon.

    Steve Clifford said that the hope is Aaron Gordon (left hamstring strain) will be able to play in Game 2 on Thursday.

    Gordon was a game-time decision for today's Game 1 but got ruled out about 90 minutes before tip. Clifford prudently noted that the Magic will need AG in order to have a chance at winning their series with the Bucks, so hopefully the athletic forward is able to take the court in a couple days' time. Gary Clark is starting in his place for Game 1.

    Aaron Gordon (strained left hamstring) will not play on Tuesday in Game 1 against the Bucks.

    This is another tough blow for the Magic who will now have to play the Bucks without their best defender. Gary Clark is likely to get the start but he will have to go against Giannis Antetokounmpo, while the Magic will need to go deep into their depth chart and try to get contributions from Wes Iwundu and Khem Birch as well. The series just got even more difficult for the Magic.

    Aaron Gordon (left hamstring) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's Game 1 vs. the Bucks.

    Gordon has been upgraded from questionable to GTD after missing the Magic's last four games. If this is a false start, and he's declared out for Tuesday's game, James Ennis, Wes Iwundu and Khem Birch should all split the minutes at power forward.
