Description: The Magic have signed Ben Gordon to a two-year, $9 million contract, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.
Insight: Gordon was a frequent DNP-Coach's Decision last season and shot just 34.3 percent over 19 games for Charlotte. This deal is a head-scratcher.

Insight: If Gordon had been released one day earlier, he would have been eligible to play in the postseason. Now he must either sign with a non-playoff team or wait until July when free agency begins. Gordon is only averaging 5.2 ppg and won't be a fantasy option even if he gets signed before the end of the season.

Description: Charlotte shooting guard Ben Gordon is questionable for Friday's game against the LA Lakers.
Insight: Gordon has played just one game since Dec. 28 and hasn't played as many as 20 minutes since mid December so at this point in his career he has zero fantasy value.

Description: Charlotte will be without shooting guard Ben Gordon Wednesday against the Nuggets. SOURCE: Bobcats PR on Twitter
Insight: He didn't make the trip to Denver because of an illness. Gordon plays sparingly anyway (just 14.8 mpg) so this news shouldn't affect many fantasy teams.

Description: Bobcats guard Ben Gordon sat out Monday's practice and is questionable for Wednesday's game against Denver due to illness, according to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer.
Insight: The shooting guard has played one game since the end of December due to a sore right knee. He's played just 17 games and averaged 5.4 ppg. He has no fantasy value.

Description: Bobcats guard Ben Gordon is questionable for Friday's game against Cleveland while recovering from a procedure to relieve soreness in his right knee.
Insight: The shooting guard missed the season opener and has limited fantasy value coming off the bench.

Description: Bobcats guard Ben Gordon is recovering from a procedure to relieve soreness in his right knee, but is questionable for Wednesday's game against Houston.
Insight: The shooting guard is in the final year of his current contract and will likely be limited to 25 minutes per game off the bench this season. His fantasy value is limited.

Description: Bobcats guard Ben Gordon drained six triples as part of a 27-point night Saturday against the Nets.

3/23/2013 9:53:00 PM
Description: Bobcats guard Ben Gordon came into Saturday's game averaging 14.7 ppg over his last nine games, but he played just 15 minutes and made 1-of-7 from the field against Detroit.
Insight: Gordon doesn't play more than 20-25 minutes on most nights but we know he can fill it up quickly if he is hitting his shots. He just didn't make them Saturday.
 
3/12/2013 9:29:00 PM
Description: Bobcats guard Ben Gordon had 17 points Tuesday against Boston and is averaging 15.8 ppg over his last five contests.
Insight: Gordon has renewed fantasy relevance with Ramon Sessions on the shelf. He has played 25 mpg over his last four games and has always shown the ability to score big in a short time.
 
3/6/2013 9:31:00 PM
Description: Bobcats guard Ben Gordon is averaging 15 points over his last two games.
Insight: He played 26 minutes Wednesday, his most since Feb. 9, so perhaps he is out of coach Mike Dunlap's doghouse.
 
Cold2/23/2013 10:20:00 PM
Description: Bobcats guard Ben Gordon only played 12 minutes and went 0-of-3 from the field Saturday in his return to action after picking up a DNP-CD Friday night.
Insight: Gordon got into a dispute with Bobcats coach Mike Dunlap and disrespected him in front of the team. It doesn't look like his minutes will be rising anytime soon. Jeff Taylor played 33 minutes and scored 18 points off the bench Saturday.
 
Cold2/14/2013 1:18:00 PM
Description: The Bobcats are reportedly ramping up efforts to trade Ben Gordon after the guard had a dispute with coach Mike Dunlap during a morning shootaround on Monday. SOURCE: Yahoo! Sports
Insight: Dunlap told Gordon to stop bouncing a ball while the coach was speaking, but Gordon refused and told Dunlap to "humble himself." Gordon's fantasy impact is limited on the Bobcats with Ramon Sessions serving as the sixth man; he hasn't scored in double figures in five straight games.
 
1/12/2013 10:23:00 PM
Description: Bobcats guard Ben Gordon's team-high 21 points Saturday gave him at least 20 points in three of his last five games.
Insight: Gordon is averaging 17.1 ppg in eight games since returning from an injury and is getting about 24 minutes and 14 shots per game so make sure to get him in the lineup.
 
1/4/2013 9:49:00 PM
Description: Bobcats guard Ben Gordon led the team with 27 points in 27 minutes and 32 seconds off the bench Friday against the Cavaliers. Gordon hit 11-of-20 from the field (2-4 3PT, 3-4 FT) with four assists, two rebounds, a steal and a block in the game.
Insight: Gordon attempted nine more shots than anyone else on the team. The shooting guard has scored in double figures in each of his four games since returning from a sore knee. He'll have a big game every once and awhile but more often than not he'll score close to his average (13.4).
 
12/30/2012 12:32:00 PM
Description: Bobcats guard Ben Gordon is averaging 12 ppg in two games since returning from an injury. However, he's failed to hit a 3-pointer on four attempts in those games.
Insight: At least Gordon is getting the shots again off the bench after falling behind in the Bobcats guard rotation following Gerald Henderson's return earlier this month. Unfortunately, it's going to be difficult to predict who will get the most shots on a game-to-game basis between Gordon, Ramon Session and rookie Jeff Taylor.
