Magic’s Gordon no longer showing concussion symptoms

Orlando Magic forward Aaron Gordon suffered a concussion last Friday (12/8) against the Denver Nuggets and did not return to the game.

Gordon spoke with reporters on Monday and says he’s free of concussion symptoms and hopes to complete the NBA’s concussion protocol.

The Magic’s next game is on Wednesday versus the Los Angeles Clippers.

“I’m showing no symptoms,” Gordon told reporters. “I feel good. So I’ll leave it up to the doctors. You always want to be cautious, especially something to your head. It’s dangerous. Concussions are dangerous. Anything with the brain.

“But I feel better, so I’m going through the concussion protocol and we’ll see if I can get back. But there’s no rush. Orlando does a great job of taking care of me, making sure that my health and safety is first and foremost, so I appreciate them.”

Gordon, 22, is averaging a career-high 18.5 points and 8.1 rebounds on the season while shooting 49.2 percent from the floor and 40.1 percent from beyond the arc.

The Magic enter Monday with a record of 11-17.
