The Magic are already without their other starting forward in Jonathan Isaac, who tore his ACL in brutal fashion on Sunday. Gordon — who is averaging 14.5 points, 7.6 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game while leading the team in minutes per game — would be another big loss if he has to miss additional time.
Magic coach Steve Clifford told reporters after the game he still didn’t know the severity of Gordon’s injury. He also declined comment on Lowry’s foul.
Shams Charania of The Athletic later reported that Gordon showed no serious hamstring damage, but would be re-evaluated after several days.
