HoopsHype Aaron Gordon rumors

November 22, 2014 Updates

Orlando Magic forward Aaron Gordon underwent successful surgery on Friday in Charlotte – less than two miles away from where his teammates were facing the Charlotte Hornets – to repair the fractured fifth metatarsal in his left foot, GM Rob Hennigan announced. An X-ray following last Saturday’s game in Washington, D.C. revealed the fractured bone in Gordon’s left foot. Following a consultation with specialist Dr. Bob Anderson, surgery was performed on Friday in Charlotte at Carolinas Medical-Mercy Hospital. Gordon, the youngest player in the NBA this season at 19 years old, is out indefinitely. He will be re-evaluated by the specialist again in six-to-eight weeks to gauge the healing in the surgically repaired bone. His return to game action will ultimately depend on how he responds to rehabilitation. NBA.com

Drew, a 24-year-old journeyman hoping to make the Sixers’ roster, and Aaron, a 19-year-old prized rookie for the Magic, were on the same court together at the NBA level on Saturday night in Allentown, Pa. The two were first on the floor together late in the first quarter, but weren’t guarding each other because of their position differences. Saturday’s game marked a moment that the two highly competitive brothers have dreamed of and discussed since they used to battle in the backyard of their San Jose, Calif., home years ago. Drew got the upper hand on Saturday, scoring 16 points and grabbing six rebounds in Philadelphia’s 95-84 defeat of the Magic. Aaron, who played extended minutes the night before in a defeat of Detroit, played just five minutes on Saturday and did not score. ``I’m really proud of (Drew) because he’s going through a lot of trials in his life and to see him out there with a NBA jersey on, it means a lot to me,’’ Aaron said.

Gordon likely will collect most of his points this season in the same fashion: by running the floor and through hustle plays. What excites Magic executives and coaches, though, is Gordon's skill as a defender. They regard him as a potential lockdown defender on the wing, and they love that Gordon views himself that way, too. Team officials believe a youngster's shooting can be developed. Orlando Sentinel

What do you expect from Aaron Gordon? Jacque Vaughn: He's a great addition to the culture that we have. We're really about having unselfish guys. He's a defensive-minded guy, who has a great athletic ability. He'll grow on the offensive end of the floor. He's a guy who will come to work every day and that's what we're looking for. HoopsHype
