Aaron Gordon scored only five points (2-7 FG, 0-1 3-pt, 1-2 FT) while adding six rebounds, one assist, and tied his season-high with four blocks in a loss to the Lakers on Monday.
The lack of consistent defensive production in his career from a player of Gordon's athleticism has always left fantasy managers wanting for more, very similar to Blake Griffin during his prime years as well. Gordon has failed to score in double-digits in three straight games, despite Denver missing several key players in their lineup, and suffice to say that the trade away from Orlando (and dramatic drop in his usage rate) really tanked Gordon's fantasy value this season.
Aaron Gordon scored 15 points (6-10 FG, 2-3 3-pt, 1-3 FT) while adding five rebounds, two assists, and a steal in just 22 minutes in a victory on Monday.
Gordon has now scored in double-figures in three of his past four games, but his playing time continues to be limited to the low-to-mid 20's lately which has hampered his fantasy value. He has shown virtually no upside since the trade to Denver and is merely a low-end fantasy option at this point.
Aaron Gordon had one of his better games with the Nuggets on Friday night, scoring 17 points (6-11 FG, 2-5 3-pt, 3-4 FT) while adding six rebounds, two assists, a block, and two turnovers in 27 minutes during a blowout loss to the Warriors.
With injuries to Jamal Murray (torn ACL), Monte Morris (hamstring), and now Will Barton (hamstring), the Nuggets will need Gordon and others to pick up the scoring slack. He's put together two solid games in a row, so he's worth grabbing if he was dropped in your league.
Aaron Gordon scored 12 points (4-11 FG, 2-4 3-pt, 2-2 FT) while grabbing six rebounds to go with three assists, two steals, and two turnovers in a 106-105 win over Portland on Wednesday.
Gordon's trade to Denver has been great for him and the Nuggets but very bad for fantasy owners rostering Gordon. He's been incredibly inconsistent and a non-factor on offense most nights. He had a decent game Wednesday and is worth holding if you can afford to hang on to him, but he's no longer a must-own player in fantasy formats.
Despite the game going into double overtime, Aaron Gordon played just 22 minutes on Monday and scored only two points (1-7 FG, 0-3 3-pt) while grabbing eight rebounds and handing out three assists. Gordon added a block with two turnovers as well.
Gordon's inconsistent tenure with the Nuggets continues, as he was a mere afterthought on Monday. Gordon has only scored in double-digits once in the past five games, and that one game was the only game in that span that he's attempted more than seven shots. With the fantasy playoffs underway, Gordon is no longer a must-own player in fantasy hoops and can be dropped for a hot free agent if you need to make a move.
