UPDATE: Jan. 10, 7:33 p.m. — Gordon and Augustin are both officially out vs. the Suns.

Orlando Magic F Aaron Gordon is questionable to play Friday night vs. the Phoenix Suns, while backup PG D.J. Augustin has been ruled out.

So we really don’t know what Gordon’s status will be and he could be closer to a game-time decision. I’d keep an eye on that leading up to lock tonight. Augustin is out, so Markelle Fultz will play most of the minutes at PG, but we know from John Denton’s tweet that Josh Magette will see a fair amount of playing time off the bench. At $3,000 on DraftKings, he’s going to be a top value selection for Orlando. If the Magic blow out the Suns, then Magette should see a ton of run. If Gordon is out, Terrence Ross ($4,500) and Wes Iwundu ($3,600) would see more minutes as a result.
