Orlando Magic star Aaron Gordon’s time in the NBA bubble is coming to an end.

On the same day that it was announced that the 2020 NBA Playoffs would indeed continue following player boycotts, it was reported that Gordon would be leaving the bubble for a number of reasons.

After winning Game 1 of their series against the Milwaukee Bucks, Gordon and the Magic are on the cusp of playoff elimination.

In fact, had Wednesday’s games not been postponed, it is highly possible that the Magic would already be on their way out.

They’re down 1-3 in the best-of-seven series.

Gordon hasn’t played since a regular season game against the Toronto Raptors back on Aug. 5.

While it’ll surely be hard to bid farewell to the season, there’s little doubt that Gordon will be happy to return home.

According to the most recent reports, the NBA expects the postseason to resume on either Friday or Saturday.
