Magic forward Aaron Gordon injured his left ankle on Sunday, exiting Orlando’s game vs. Toronto.

With 1:14 left in the third, Gordon rolled his ankle bringing the ball upcourt, immediately shifting into a hop step as he reached down, wincing. He later left the court on crutches, foot unadorned.

The seventh-year swingman is averaging 13.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 4.2 assists, shooting 42.7% from the floor, including 36.9% from long range. His points and rebounding average represent four-year lows, though the assist number would set a career-best.
