The Orlando Magic are one of the teams in the Eastern Conference that have a lot of chances of making the playoffs. In case they do, it will be their third consecutive year making it.

The Magic will have to keep making that push for the best eight without yet another key player, Aaron Gordon.

According to Shams Charania from The Athletic, the high-flyer forward suffered an ankle sprain and will be out 4-6 weeks.

Gordon joins Markelle Fultz and Jonathan Isaac as the Magic starters out with injuries. Both Fultz and Isaac are expected to miss the entire season. 

Michael Carter-Williams, Chuma Okeke and Al-Farouq Aminu have also been out for most of the season. 

Since Gordon was the ball-dominant player, rookie point guard Cole Anthony, and Jordan Bone are expected to become the team's primary ball-handlers.

Prior to the injury, the 25 year-old was averaging 13.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game.
