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

After the Magic lost to the Washington Wizards on Saturday night, Gordon said, he told Magic athletic trainer Keon Weise that he needed new orthotics in his shoes. Weise insisted Gordon get his foot X-rayed, Gordon said. “It’s been sore,” Gordon said. “It’s been a sore foot. It didn’t really feel like much at all. . . . It was a little bit painful, but it wasn’t anything really at all.” Orlando Sentinel

Keeping Saric was never a consideration. Philly knew Orlando wanted and needed Payton, so they basically held him hostage. By the time Orlando drafted Saric they had the deal done with Philly, so that pick was always Philly’s guy, he was never on Orlando’s board. This was sort of like when Charlotte drafted Kobe Bryant — they never considered Kobe for themselves. The trade was done well before the draft and the Lakers told Charlotte who they wanted. The pick was long gone to LA before Kobe was drafted. The same with Saric, Orlando drafted him for Philly. Basketball Insiders
