Is ‘Aaron Gordon playing tonight’ has been a burning question for all Magic fans, as they look to took an unprecedented 2-0 lead over Bucks.
Orlando Magic will miss the services of star Aaron Gordon tonight as they look to build on their shock first game victory against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Gordon has been out after straining his left hamstring in the game against Raptors earlier in the bubble. Coach Steve Clifford mentioned that Gordon and Carter-Williams (foot tendon strain) were both questionable for the second game of the series tonight.
Is Aaron Gordon playing today?
According to an injury report released by Magic, Aaron Gordon is listed as questionable for today’s game vs Bucks. A hamstring strain does take a while to heal and hence it could very well be possible that he does not participate today against Bucks.
Surprisingly, the Orlando Magic blew aside Giannis and co. in the first game of the series.
Star center Vucevic stepped up big time as scored 35 points along with 14 rebounds and 4 assists. He was ably supported by Ross, Fultz and Clark as the trio scored a combined 48 points amongst themselves.
Aaron Gordon (strained left hamstring) and Michael Carter-Williams (strained left foot tendon) are OUT for today’s playoff game against the Bucks, Magic officials said.

The squad will miss the presence of Gordon who has made a name as a monstrous dunking machine in the league. The forward averages 14.4 points, 7.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists this season. His all-round play and basketball IQ in general has been instrumental in getting Magic this far, and the team would hope he gets fit in the nick of time in order to upset the Bucks tonight as well.
The Magic take on the Bucks in game 2 of the series tonight. The Bucks looked abysmal in the first game as all-star Khris Middleton failed to support reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo.
The Bucks haven’t looked like their true self in the bubble so far. With a victory tonight for the Magic, the Bucks might end up in a deeper hole than anyone might have expected.
