News: Magic power forward Aaron Gordon said Wednesday that his surgery Friday to insert a screw in his foot was successful, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

"I'm on the road to recovery now," Gordon added.

Coach Jacque Vaughn praised Gordon before Wednesday's game. "I love his game," Vaughn said. "There's different segments of the game that are being pushed forward, I think, and I think energy-and-effort guys who bring it every night [are one of them]. He fits into that category. That's a skill these days now, where that used to be the 15th guy on the bench. That's a skill. He brings that on an everyday basis, and we miss that. We miss his versatility of guarding multiple positions ... So I look forward to him coming back, and I've told him I miss him, too."

Gordon has averaged 5.8 points and 3.0 rebounds while shooting 58.1 percent in 11 games.

News: Rockets coach Kevin McHale said Wednesday that center Dwight Howard and guard Patrick Beverley, both of whom have been ruled out for Wednesday's matchup with the Kings, will likely remain sidelined Friday, the Houston Chronicle reports.

McHale also indicated that he'd like both players to practice before returning to game action, which likely leaves them as doubtful to play Saturday as well. The Rockets get three days off after the upcoming back-to-back before playing Wednesday, which could mark a return date for both players if they can practice in the interim.
