Gordon's injury is also to his ankle, as he was diagnosed with a right ankle contusion, but there is no official timetable for his return The time of his absence will reportedly depend on how he responds to treatment, as both his and Vucevic's injuries took place in a loss Wednesday night to the Toronto Raptors.
Vucevic was on pace to another All-Star spot in the Eastern Conference, averaging a double-double of 17.1 points and 11.6 rebounds per game this season. He finished at 20.8 points and 12 rebounds per game a year ago, leading the Magic to a seventh seed in the Eastern Conference, before they were eliminated by the Raptors in the first round.
Gordon has turned from a highlight reel to a legitimate producer at 13.1 points per game at 6.2 rebounds per contest, while also having a big role in their playoff run a season ago. He has averaged in double figures the past three seasons, including 16 points and 7.4 rebounds per game in 2018-2019. The team is hoping these two will recover in a shorter amount of time, as they sit at 6-8, good for eight in the East heading in to their road matchup with the Indiana Pacers Saturday night.
