Eric Gordon scored 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting (including two threes) with two rebounds, five assists and one steal over 35 minutes in Friday's road win over the Wolves.
Gordon is going to be worth having in lineups at least until Jrue Holiday returns and if Ryan Anderson misses more time with his ankle injury he could have a nice little run here. Anthony Davis added 21 and 12 with two steals and a block, and Tyreke Evans is also enjoying life without Holiday as he poured in 17 points with eight assists in an otherwise full line.

Date:

Eric Gordon stayed hot on Wednesday with 17 points, five rebounds, 10 assists, a steal and a 3-pointer on 7-of-13 shooting.

He's healthy and on fire right now, and with Jrue Holiday expected out for the next two to four weeks, Gordon should now be owned in all leagues.
Jan 21 - 11:41 PM

Eric Gordon scored 20 points with one rebound, five assists and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Knicks during a 99-92 loss on Monday.

He's actually looked much better in his past four games with more work off the dribble. In those four games without Jrue Holiday (ankle), Gordon averaged 15.5 points, 4.0 boards, 4.5 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.8 triples. He's worth owning in standard leagues until we get a target date on Holiday.
Jan 19 - 9:03 PM

Eric Gordon put up 14 points on 6-of-15 shooting, with five rebounds, five assists, one steal, one 3-pointer, and five turnovers during Sunday's win over the Raptors.

Gordon has been tasked with some more ball-handling responsibilities with Jrue Holiday (ankle) out of the lineup, which unfortunately has resulted in him averaging 3.8 turnovers per game. However, he's still putting up serviceable averages of 15.8 points, 4.0 assists, and 2.0 three-pointers per game over that span, so he's still worth owning in most leagues.
Jan 18 - 6:51 PM

Eric Gordon scored 16 points on 5-of-16 from the field during a 96-81 loss to the 76ers on Friday, adding six rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He matched his season high in rebounds and was on the ball a heck of a lot more tonight. Gordon has seen a spike in his usage rate since the Jrue Holiday (ankle) injury, so he should be worth starting in standard leagues for now.
Jan 16 - 10:21 PM

Eric Gordon scored 12 points with four rebounds, five assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Pistons on Wednesday.

He was not heavily involved while the Pelicans were at full strength earlier this season, but now he should get several more touches with Jrue Holiday (ankle) out. Gordon isn't exactly the most durable guy himself, but he should be able to post top-100 value while Holiday is out.
Jan 14 - 10:07 PM

Eric Gordon scored 21 points against the Celtics on Monday with two rebounds, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

The Pelicans are going to need him to play more with Jrue Holiday (leg) suffering an injury. Gordon has been extremely quiet on the season due to getting less shots, but that could change with Tyreke Evans running the offense more. If you need scoring and treys, give EG a look.
Jan 12 - 11:06 PM

Eric Gordon started at shooting guard and had 14 points, two rebounds, four assists, a steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers in Wednesday's loss.

Gordon is probably worth a pick up now that he's healthy, starting and capable of lines like this on a regular basis, but the fact remains his next injury could be just around the corner.
Jan 7 - 10:17 PM

Eric Gordon returned from over a month off due to a shoulder injury in the Pelicans' 92-85 loss to the Wizards on Monday, scoring six points on 2-of-8 shooting (0-for-4 3PTs) with four rebounds and five assists in 33 minutes.

The minutes are a good sign but Gordon is unlikely to have the firepower to do much with them in fantasy leagues. Deep league owners may want to take a flier in 8-cat leagues, but that's the most excitement we can muster these days.
Jan 6 - 1:31 AM

Eric Gordon has been activated to face the Wizards on Monday.

He has been out since Nov. 22 and the Pelicans look to be getting him back at the right time with Tyreke Evans (illness) up in the air. Gordon hasn't done much this season with better teammates around him, so he's not a terrific grab in fantasy leagues until proven otherwise.
Jan 5 - 6:26 PM

Eric Gordon (shoulder) is likely to make his return on Monday, and he's not expected to be on a minutes limit.

Additionally, he's expected to start. Gordon has not played since November 22, so he'll have been out about six weeks since sustaining the shoulder injury. Gordon's attempting to play through the concern after rehab, but if he aggravates it, surgery could still be an option down the line. For now, Gordon will try to play through it, but he was averaging just 9.5 points, 1.2 steals and 1.2 triples on a pathetic 39.8 percent shooting. Tyreke Evans is likely to move back to small forward.
Jan 5 - 11:28 AM

Eric Gordon (shoulder) has been upgraded to questionable for Monday's game vs. the Wizards.

The Pelicans have been struggling to replace Gordon while he's been on the sidelines, and have been running with a collection of Austin Rivers, Jimmer Fredette, and Luke Babbitt on the wings. Gordon would likely eventually return to the starting lineup, but with the way he was playing as a starter before going down, there's no reason to run out and grab him in standard leagues.

Eric Gordon (shoulder) will likely be a game-time decision for Monday's game vs. the Wizards.

He is obviously going to be a little rusty and it will be interesting to see how his shoulder responds to an increased workload. Coach Monty Williams is still undecided on whether he should start Gordon so we will continue to watch this situation closely. If Gordon is active Monday, his return would dampen the value of Austin Rivers, Jimmer Fredette and Luke Babbitt.

Eric Gordon (shoulder) is set to practice on Sunday and his return to action is getting closer.

Head coach Monty Williams is still undecided on whether or not to bring Gordon off the bench upon his return, but that decision is said to come on Sunday. There still isn't an exact return date set for Gordon, but owners in standard leagues can use a wait-and-see approach given how inconsistent he was before suffering the injury.
Jan 3 - 1:55 PM

Eric Gordon (shoulder) did some on-court work and is getting closer to a return.

He's not exactly a fast healer and the Pelicans don't necessarily need him in the lineup despite Austin Rivers not playing well. Gordon wasn't posting value worth owning in standard leagues before the injury, so there's little appeal to stash him.
