Huge Blow Dealt to the Orlando Magic

The Orlando Magic will be without one of the best players for the next month or so, as forward Aaron Gordon is going to be sidelined for 4-6 weeks with a ankle sprain.

So far this season the 25-year-old high-flyer has averaged 13.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game in 19 appearances. The Magic currently sit 8-13 on the season and are outside looking in at the playoff picture. Losing their starting power forward is certainly not going to help their chances of getting back into a playoff seed.

Gordon suffered the injury on Sunday against the Toronto Raptors and next time these two teams meet, you may want to set a reminder because Kyle Lowry of the Raps and Gordon are developing quite the hatred for each other that dates back to the bubble last season.
