According to Kelly Iko of The Athletic, the Rockets "don’t want to overextend" Chris Paul this season.
CP3 turned 33 back in May and signed a four-year, $160 million deal over the offseason. He played in 58 and 61 games over the past two seasons due to injury, and with the Rockets adding Brandon Knight, they could look to reduce Paul's workload with some maintenance days mixed in to keep him healthy for the postseason. He's still an elite fantasy point guard, but he's a lot more risky in head-to-head leagues for the reasons stated above. Sep 17 - 1:18 PM

James Harden had 27 points, 10 rebounds and three assists in Houston’s 127-105 Game 2 win over Golden State on Wednesday.

Harden’s 27 points tied Eric Gordon for the team-high, and he got some much needed help from his teammates for Houston to pull off the victory and tie the series at 1-1. Five Rockets scored in double digits, including Chris Paul, P.J. Tucker and Trevor Ariza, and the team knocked down 16 triples after making 13 in Game 1. Harden also came up big on the glass, and his 10 boards were a postseason high.
May 16 - 11:31 PM

James Harden shot 2-of-18 from the field for 12 points on Wednesday, making 7-of-8 free throws with seven assists, four rebounds, three steals and three blocks.

Harden finished 1-of-10 from downtown, yet the Rockets still pulled away for a 102-82 victory thanks to lock-down defense and big games from Chris Paul (27 points) and Gerald Green (21 points). The Wolves threw multiple defenders at Harden all night long and considering they held him to 11.1% percent shooting, it's a strategy we're likely to see again as the series shifts to Minnesota for Game 3 on Saturday.

Eric Gordon shot 3-of-10 from the field and 1-of-7 from deep on Sunday, scoring seven points with two assists, one rebound, one steal and one block in 30 minutes.

Gordon didn't get to the free-throw line and he wasn't the only Rockets player to struggle from downtown. Trevor Ariza, P.J. Tucker, Chris Paul and Gerald Green combined for a 2-of-18 mark from deep, which is almost unthinkable. The Wolves allowed opponents to shoot 36.6% from deep this season (13th-highest in the league) and we're expecting these guys to find the range sooner rather than later.
Apr 15 - 11:58 PM

Trevor Ariza, Chris Paul, James Harden, Eric Gordon and Clint Capela will all be rested for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Kings.

It's a matchup against the Kings and the Rockets are locked in as the No. 1 seed, so there's zero incentive for any of the main guys to risk getting injured tonight. Joe Johnson and Gerald Green should be busy on offense tonight with all the main guys out.
Apr 11 - 9:05 PM

P.J. Tucker will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday game against the Heat, with Ryan Anderson (ankle) unavailable.

Joining Tucker in the starting five will be Chris Paul, James Harden, Luc Mbah a Moute and Clint Capela. Through four starts this season, Tucker has compiled averages of 5.3 points, 7.3 boards and 1.3 steals per game on 35.3% shooting, so he's really only a low-end streamer in deep leagues.
Feb 7 - 7:26 PM

James Harden led the Rockets to victory on Sunday with 27 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists, three 3-pointers, two steals, one block and six turnovers in 38 minutes.

Harden didn't have the best shooting performance, going 8-of-21 from the field and 8-of-12 from the charity stripe, but we doubt his owners are complaining. Trevor Ariza went down just 30 seconds into the game with a hamstring injury, and Chris Paul didn't look quite right during the fourth, so it'll be interesting to see if those guys hit the sidelines on Tuesday with a matchup against the 14-34 Magic. Per, when CP3 and Ariza have been off the floor, Harden's usage rate spikes to 43.0.
Jan 28 - 7:13 PM

The league will not be suspending James Harden or Chris Paul for their participation in Monday's locker room incident with the Clippers.

Harden and Paul have been described as trying to calm the situation down, so they won't be catching any heat in this ordeal, while both Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green will be serving a two-game suspension. Harden is expected to make it back to the court on Thursday, and he'll be dealing with a 24-25 minute limit.
Jan 17 - 6:41 PM

Mike D'Antoni said that James Harden (hamstring) could return to the court for Thursday's game against the Timberwolves or Saturday's game vs. the Warriors.

It sounds like Harden will sit out Monday's game against the Clippers, but there's a good chance he'll be getting back out there next week, which could queue the end of Gerald Green's run as a fantasy relevant asset. Eric Gordon will return to the bench once Harden is able to get back out there, and Chris Paul's usage and assist rate will take a slight hit.
Jan 14 - 3:03 PM

James Harden (hamstring) was able to get up some shots at shootaround on Wednesday.

Head coach Mike D'Antoni said that Harden has looked "really good" as he continues his rehab from the Grade 2 hamstring strain, and members of Harden's camp have indicated that he could be back "soon, anytime next week," so maybe he'll return at the end of his initial two-week timetable. In the meantime, Chris Paul, Eric Gordon and Gerald Green will continue to pick up the slack in his absence.
Jan 10 - 12:28 PM

Gerald Green is "finalizing a non-guaranteed deal to sign with the Houston Rockets," sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Green has been out of basketball all season after getting released by Milwaukee before the year began, but he'll be back as insurance with Chris Paul (adductor) and Luc Mbah a Moute (shoulder) sidelined.

Eric Gordon hit 8-of-21 shots with five 3-pointers on Wednesday, scoring 21 points with four rebounds, one steal and one block in 36 minutes vs. the Lakers.

Gordon hit a rough patch when Chris Paul returned, which bumped him back to a sixth-man role, but he's in a groove lately with averages of 21.4 points (59.0% FGs, 78.9% FTs) and 4.0 triples over Houston's past five games. He currently leads the NBA in net rating, with the Rockets outscoring opponents by +18.2 points per 100 possessions when he's on the court. He won't stay this hot offensively but could see his usage increase if CP3 (adductor) is forced to miss any games.
Thu, Dec 21, 2017 12:40:00 AM

James Harden scored 51 points in a losing effort on Wednesday, making 15-of-27 FGs and 17-of-21 FTs with nine assists, four 3-pointers, three rebounds, one steal and one block.

Harden was cold from the field in his previous four games (35.9 percent), but you can't keep MVP candidates down for long. The 21 free throw attempts were a new season-high, and he tied his high with 43 minutes played, but in the end Houston's 14-game win streak was snapped by the visiting Lakers. Chris Paul exited this game with a sore adductor, and if he misses time we should see more monster lines from Harden. As a side note, he's already set a single-season franchise record with 20+ points in 30 consecutive games.

Eric Gordon will start Wednesday's game in place of Chris Paul (knee).

Gordon scored 24 points on Tuesday and he should be firing away again tonight, making him an interesting DFS target. Paul's injury doesn't seem long-term, though, so this doesn't do too much for Gordon's outlook.
Wed, Oct 18, 2017 08:33:00 PM

Eric Gordon started on Friday with Chris Paul (knee, shoulder) sidelined, dropping a game-high 27 points on 9-of-18 shooting, including a 6-of-12 mark from downtown.

Gordon was effortlessly draining 3-pointers early in the game, and it looks like his role will expand if CP3 is forced to miss any games this season. For now, Paul's absence is being called a precaution and it sounds like he'll be ready to go for Houston's opener on Tuesday. Gordon's fantasy value is overwhelmingly reliant upon 3-pointers, but it helps that he played in 75 games last year, the most since his rookie campaign in 2008-09.
