Aaron Gordon Injury: Updates on Magic Forward’s Foot and Return

Orlando Magic rookie Aaron Gordon is working his way back to the court.

John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reported that Gordon returned to the team on Saturday:

The power forward has been out since a Nov. 15 loss to the Washington Wizards and had surgery on his left foot six days later after fracturing the fifth metatarsal in the foot.

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reported a few days ago that Gordon was walking without a boot, which was a sign of progress:

The fourth overall pick in the NBA draft, Gordon has appeared in 11 games this season, averaging 5.8 points and three rebounds in 15 minutes a night.

Although few expected Orlando to be a playoff contender even in the weak Eastern Conference, the Magic are only three games out of the eighth spot. Once Gordon returns, they might become a legitimate contender for the top eight.
