Eric Gordon scored 22 points with three rebounds, five assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 42 minutes during a start for Chris Paul (hamstring) on Thursday.
He'll continue to get starts when Chris Paul or James Harden miss time. Paul is likely going to play on Saturday, but the Rockets could wind up resting James Harden. If that happens, Gordon would get a start in a revenge game against the Pelicans, but of course he's also at risk of a rest day, especially considering his injury history. Mar 22 - 11:05 PM

Eric Gordon will start on Thursday night against the Pistons.

Chris Paul is not expected to play today unless he insists, so it'll be Gordon out there. He should see minutes in the 30s and may get double-digit 3-pointers, so he'll have a chance for several points. Expect Gerald Green to be in Gordon's role as the trigger man off the bench while the other forwards should see more minutes, too. Daily Slant: James Harden becomes the top overall play on the slate quickly (if he wasn't already before) - with Paul and all other inactive/non-rotation members off the floor, Harden averages an insane 1.66 FPPM with a 41.1% usage rate. That's good for a +2.7% usage bump and a +0.09 FPPM increase. Eric Gordon actually doesn't benefit in terms of usage/FPPM, but he does pick up more court time with Paul out and that alone makes him a solid mid-range target industry wide.

Eric Gordon bounced back from a couple quiet games with 18 points, four rebounds and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes on Tuesday.

He scored a total of 10 points in his previous two games, so it was nice to see him get back on track in this one. Ryan Anderson has become an afterthought in Houston, so look for Gordon to keep getting big minutes and to play well for the Rockets going forward.
Mar 21 - 1:42 AM

Eric Gordon was quiet on Sunday with five points, one rebound, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes, making 2-of-5 shots without any free throw attempts.

Gordon began the month with five straight games in double-digits, but since then he's been all over the place -- he dropped 23 points vs. the Clippers last Thursday, but has scored five points in each of the past two games. He was also held to one point on 0-of-7 shooting vs. the Spurs on Mar. 12, and is crushing owners who need production to make (or win) their fantasy playoffs. The good news is that he gets a favorable four-game slate next week.
Mar 18 - 10:07 PM

Eric Gordon made 8-of-13 shots with seven 3-pointers on Thursday, scoring 23 points with six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 30 minutes.

Gordon went 0-of-6 from deep on Monday but he came back and did what shooters always do -- shoot. He's now had 16 games with at least five 3-pointers this season, a total exceeded only by James Harden and Steph Curry. Beyond the triples and a solid 17.1 points with strong FT%, though, Gordon's biggest accomplishment has been staying healthy with a reasonable nine DNPs all season.
Mar 15 - 10:57 PM

Eric Gordon returned to the bench with the return of James Harden on Monday and missed all seven of his shots, finishing a 109-93 blowout win over the Spurs with just one point in 23 minutes.

Gordon was playing well, scoring between 14 and 29 points in his last six games, but the return of Harden combined with Gordon's shot not falling resulted in fantasy disaster. Gordon should bounce back and have some good games down the stretch, as he was playing well off the bench with Harden in the lineup previously, but with guys like Harden, Chris Paul, Trevor Ariza and Clint Capela doing the heavy lifting in Houston, Gordon has the potential for low-scoring games at any time. Additionally, while tonight was likely just a fluke, owners have to hope this isn't the start of a shooting slump for Gordon.
Mar 12 - 11:25 PM

Eric Gordon started for James Harden (knee) on Sunday, scoring a game-high 26 points on 9-of-16 shooting with six 3-pointers, four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 31 minutes.

Mike D'Antoni confirmed before the game that Harden will return on Monday, so this doesn't have lasting implications for Gordon's fantasy value. He came in shooting 41.2% from the field in Houston's previous three games, but that included 15.3 points, 3.3 triples, 4.0 rebounds, 0.7 steals, 1.0 blocks and a perfect mark at the FT line. He's at his best when Harden or Chris Paul are out of the lineup, but is basically a lock for standard-league value regardless.
Mar 11 - 9:47 PM

Eric Gordon scored a game-high 29 points with three rebounds, one assist and seven 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Celtics on Saturday.

Needless to say, he's healthy again after this gem and a 22-point Wednesday. Gordon's usage rate was starting to slide last month, but it's back up again with 15.5 shots from the field in his last two. Although, Chris Paul getting into some foul trouble today may have slightly helped Gordon. He'll be elite in 3-pointers the rest of the way.
Mar 3 - 11:32 PM

Eric Gordon (illness) was back in action on Wednesday, scoring 22 points on 7-of-18 shooting with five 3-pointers, two rebounds and one block in 28 minutes off the bench.

Gordon wound up missing three games with his ailment, but the Rockets just kept rolling along without him, extending their win streak to 14 straight with tonight's victory. Gordon has struggled after a scorching start to the season (mostly as a starter without Chris Paul), but there's cause for optimism -- the Rockets join the Pelicans and Raptors as the only teams with four games in Weeks 21, 22 and 23.
Mar 1 - 1:58 AM

Eric Gordon (illness) is not on the injury report for Wednesday's game vs. the Clippers.

Gordon has missed three games in a row with this illness, but it sounds like he'll be ready to return to the lineup on Wednesday. With Gordon expected back, that means we will see less of guys like Joe Johnson and Gerald Green.
Feb 27 - 7:56 PM

Eric Gordon (illness) is listed as out for Monday's matchup in Utah.

This will be Gordon's second straight game on the sidelines due to the illness, and for now, we'll consider him questionable for Wednesday's game against the Clippers. Joe Johnson will again have the opportunity for extended minutes tonight, but he hasn't done enough in Houston to warrant much attention in fantasy hoops.
Feb 26 - 7:15 PM

Eric Gordon (illness) and Nene (rest) will both sit out Sunday's game vs. Denver.

Gordon didn't practice on Saturday and was considered doubtful for his game, so owners should have already been prepared for his absence. Joe Johnson should pick up most of the slack as an accomplished playmaker off Houston's bench.
Feb 25 - 6:33 PM

Eric Gordon (illness) was unable to practice on Saturday and is doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Gordon missed Friday's game vs. Minnesota due to the same illness. If he is unable to suit up on Sunday as well, P.J. Tucker, Luc Mbah a Moute and Joe Johnson would see additional playing time. The Rockets then play the back end of a back-to-back on Monday in Utah.
Feb 24 - 12:39 PM

Eric Gordon (illness) will not play on Friday vs. the Wolves.

He had a knee contusion before the All-Star break and it's not clear if that is also bothering him. The Rockets are getting Trevor Ariza (hamstring) back tonight, but Gerald Green could keep some of his minutes with Gordon out.
Feb 23 - 7:49 PM

Eric Gordon (illness) is not at the arena yet and could miss Friday's game against the Wolves.

It sounds like he's not going to play, but of course that could change shortly. If he's out, Gerald Green, P.J. Tucker and Luc Mbah a Moute could help out with Trevor Ariza also back in the lineup.
