    Gordon (heel) will play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Gordon was given a probable tag for Wednesday's tilt after playing 33 minutes in his return from a four-game absence with a heel injury. Considering he was able to play a full workload last time out, expect Gordon to continue to handle 30-plus minutes.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Listed as probable

    Gordon (heel) is probable to play Wednesday against the Clippers.

    Gordon continues to deal with lingering effects of a right heel strain, although he returned to a normal workload in Saturday's loss the Kings after missing four consecutive contests due to the injury. Posting 17 points in 33 minutes Saturday, Gordon's presence on the injury report is likely precautionary, and he's firmly on track to play coming off three full days of rest.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Gets sizable minutes in return

    Gordon (heel) finished with 17 points (8-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt), seven rebounds, three assists and one block across 33 minutes in Saturday's 123-117 loss to the Kings.

    Gordon made his return from a four-game absence due to the heel injury, taking back his usual spot in the starting five while reclaiming a typical minutes load. The Nuggets were playing without Jamal Murray (ankle) for the second game in a row, but if Murray is available for the team's next game Wednesday versus the Clippers, Gordon could end up losing out on a couple of field-goal attempts.

    Gordon (heel) will not play in Friday's contest with the Suns, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Gordon's absence will mark his fourth straight due to a strained right heel. With the Nuggets playing the front end of a back-to-back set, it is not surprising to see them err on the side of caution here. His next chance to return will come Saturday in Sacramento.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Questionable for Wednesday

    Gordon (heel) is questionable to play Wednesday against Houston.

    Gordon has missed back-to-back contests due to a right heel strain. If he's forced to miss a third contest, Justin Holiday and Julian Strawther will presumably absorb most of Gordon's minutes again, while Reggie Jackson's heavy usage could continue if Nikola Jokic (back) and Jamal Murray (hamstring) remain sidelined.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Out again Monday

    Gordon (heel) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup against the Clippers.

    Gordon was listed as probable on the Nuggets' initial injury for Sunday's matchup versus San Antonio but was downgraded to questionable and eventually ruled out. He'll now miss both halves of Denver's back-to-back set due to a right heel strain and will turn his sights on returning to action Wednesday versus Houston. Jamal Murray (hamstring) also remains out, so Justin Holiday, Julian Strawther and Christian Braun are all candidates for increased roles.

Peyton Watson (illness) and Michael Porter could see increased run against San Antonio.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Downgraded to questionable

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Expected to play Sunday

    Gordon is listed as probable for Sunday's game versus the Spurs due to a right heel strain.

    Gordon has yet to miss a game this season and isn't expected to do so Sunday despite dealing with a heel injury. The 28-year-old forward is averaging 13.3 points, 8.6 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 1.0 steals in 36.6 minutes across his last 10 appearances.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Goes 0-for-12 in loss

    Gordon closed with two points (0-12 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT), seven rebounds and two assists across 39 minutes during Friday's 105-86 loss to the Rockets.

    Gordon couldn't hit the side of a barn in Friday's loss, missing all 12 of his field goal attempts. Despite playing 33.9 minutes per game this season, Gordon is outside the top 150 in nine-category leagues. Still, Gordon remains a roster-able player with averages of 13.1 points, 7.2 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 2.1 combined steals and blocks. If he can start to hit his shots, he should push back into the top 100 at some point.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Double-double in loss to Magic

    Gordon notched 15 points (7-16 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 0-2 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist and two steals over 37 minutes during Wednesday's 124-119 loss to Orlando.

    The 28-year-old forward has a solid showing against his former club, producing his fourth double-double of the season. Gordon has settled into a secondary scoring role in Denver, even with Jamal Murray (hamstring) currently sidelined, but he's averaging better than 7.0 boards a game for the first time as a member of the Nuggets -- his 7.2 RPG is his best performance in that category since he delivered 7.7 a game for the Magic in 2019-20.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Sniffs double-double

    Gordon closed Friday's 115-110 loss to New Orleans with 14 points (7-14 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 0-3 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and two steals across 39 minutes.

    Gordon ended just two rebounds away from recording a double-double, a feat he's achieved three times already. While he's not going to lead the offense any time soon, especially when sharing the frontcourt with Nikola Jokic, he has been consistent with his numbers on both ends of the court. Gordon is averaging 14.5 points, 8.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game in November.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Solid outing with 20 points

    Gordon ended Tuesday's 111-108 win over the Clippers with 20 points (8-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds and five assists over 39 minutes.

    Gordon has arguably stepped up the most in the absence of star guard Jamal Murray (hamstring), as the veteran forward has increased his production significantly of late. Over the four games since Murray exited the lineup, Gordon has averaged close to a double-double with 16.3 points, 9.0 rebounds and 4.8 assists. All of these numbers are well above his season averages.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Logs another double-double in win

    Gordon registered 14 points (5-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists, three steals and a blocked shot across 34 minutes in Wednesday's 108-105 win over the Warriors.

    Gordon had a great evening but was especially effective on defense, logging a full line in every category. The Nuggets got almost zero support from the bench, which kept the starters on the floor for maximum minutes. Gordon will get an extended rest before his next game against Houston on the road.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Records double-double in win

    Gordon finished with 15 points (7-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 12 rebounds, six assists and one block across 36 minutes during Monday's 134-116 victory over the Pelicans.

    Gordon had a tough time defending Zion Williamson, but he had his own share of offensive success with 15 points to go alongside 12 rebounds and six assists. Gordon is a reliable anchor at the baseline and delivers decent stat lines despite Nikola Jokic's interior dominance.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Strong showing in Friday's win

    Gordon notched 18 points (8-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt), eight rebounds, six assists, one block and two steals in 35 minutes during Friday's 125-114 win over the Mavericks.

    The veteran forward set new highs on the young season in boards and assists in a strong all-around performance. Gordon's been especially active on the defensive end through six games, averaging 1.3 steals and 1.2 blocks a night, and both marks would be career highs if he can keep them up. On the downside, his 12.8 points a night would be his lowest since 2016-17, largely because he hasn't been drawing contact. After averaging a career-high 4.6 free-throw attempts a game last season, Gordon's managed only 1.3 a game so far in 2023-24 and has failed to get to the line at all in three of six contests.
