Aaron Gordon breaks jaw while horsing around with his brother, undergoes surgery

He should be ready for the season opener though

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Former Arizona Wildcat and current Orlando Magic player Aaron Gordonsuffered a broken jaw while horsing around with his brother Drew.

Aaron is expected to be ready to go by the start of the NBA season, but this is certainly a bit of a setback for him as he continues to develop his game. He was impressive in Summer League play, being named to the Orlando Summer League's All-Tournament team. Now he'll be forced to let his jaw recover instead of build upon what he did in Summer League.

Feel bad for the guy, but hopefully he'll come out next season looking strong.
