Eric Gordon made 2-of-14 from the field for six points against the Warriors on Friday, adding four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 33 minutes.
Yuck. Gordon had the lead for total 3-pointers before tonight, but Stephen Curry passed him back. After Gordon made an incredible 4.4 treys per game on 45.7 from deep in December, he's down to 3.3 on 30.6 percent. Obviously volume helps with his 10.9 attempts and Gordon is still at a respectable 40.0 percent overall this month. He probably has peaked, but keep him going. Jan 21 - 12:58 AM

Eric Gordon scored 25 points with four rebounds and seven 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday.

That ankle issue clearly didn't bother him. Gordon had been in a shooting slump this month, making just 31.1 percent from deep in his previous January games. After the game, Gordon passed Stephen Curry for first in the NBA for total 3-pointers -- Curry could pass him back tonight against the Thunder. These sharpshooters will face off on Friday night.

Eric Gordon (ankle) will play on Wednesday night against the Bucks.

He should be ready to roll after a tweak of his ankle. Gordon continues to make his money when he's not on the court next to James Harden, posting a 33.2 usage rate without The Beard and only a 19.0 with him. He's worth using in standard leagues tonight.
Jan 18 - 6:28 PM

Eric Gordon (ankle) is not on the injury report for Wednesday against the Bucks.

He looked to tweak his ankle on Tuesday and did have to leave the game. The Rockets didn't have a shootaround today, so we likely won't get another update on him until about 90 minutes before tip. For now, expect him to play in a high-scoring game as the Rockets look to bounce back from a loss on Tuesday.
Jan 18 - 4:38 PM

Eric Gordon hit just 3-of-17 shots and 1-of-10 3-pointers for seven points, one rebound and one assist in Tuesday's 109-103 loss to the Heat.

Ouch. He left the game briefly to have either his ankle or toe re-taped, but never got into a groove tonight. And with Ryan Anderson out with the flu, the Rockets were looking for him to step up. Hopefully his re-taping issue is not a problem going forward and we expect him to bounce back on Wednesday against the Bucks. That is a back-to-back situation and coach Mike D'Antoni said after the game he's a little worried about whether Gordon will be ready to bounce back. Watch for news on Gordon on Wednesday, just in case.
Jan 17 - 10:10 PM

Eric Gordon suffered a lower right leg injury of some sort on Tuesday and went to the locker room, but returned a short time later.

He likely either aggravated his toe injury or suffered a sprained ankle, but whatever the case, he had it taped back up and is back in the game. He's having a tough night, currently sitting on seven points on 3-of-11 shooting.
Jan 17 - 9:09 PM

Eric Gordon lit up the Nets on Sunday for a game-high 24 points, making 9-of-14 shots with four 3-pointers in 28 minutes of action.

Gordon added three boards, three assists and just one turnover, and his recent toe injury isn't a concern. The Rockets' perimeter-happy offense has enabled him to drained a whopping 3.7 triples per game this season, which has anchored his mid-round fantasy value.
Jan 15 - 9:06 PM

Eric Gordon scored 13 points in his return to the lineup on Friday, adding one rebound, one assist and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

The left big toe sprain didn't hinder his playing time, playing just above his 30.6 minutes per game average. Gordon goes from a tough matchup tonight to a dream matchup on Sunday against the Nets.
Jan 14 - 1:18 AM

Eric Gordon has been cleared to play Friday against Memphis, but said he still wants to give it one more test before the game to be sure.

Gordon is still likely to play on Friday, but it's not a certainty. "I just started running a little bit for the first time (Thursday). It's still painful a little bit, but we'll see how it goes before the game, try to get ready for the game," Gordon said after shootaround. "You got to play with some kind of pain. You have to deal with it." Check back prior to tip-off, as we will pass along offical word once it is announced.
Jan 13 - 1:33 PM

Eric Gordon (left big toe sprain) is available to play Friday night vs. the Grizzlies.

Gordon has missed each of the Rockets last two games due to the toe injury, which allowed Steph Curry to pass him for the league lead in made 3-pointers. However, Gordon, who is a strong early-season candidate for the NBA Sixth Man of the Year Award, will look to get back on track Friday night. Gordon is averaging 17.8 points and 3.7 3-pointers per game this season.

Eric Gordon (left big toe sprain) is listed as probable in the game notes for Friday against the Grizzlies.

He didn't even travel for Wednesday, so getting the probable tag in the game notes doesn't hold too much weight. He should be considered questionable for now and we should have an update on Friday morning.

Eric Gordon (left big toe) will not play Wednesday vs. the Timberwolves.

He didn't even travel with the team, and for now, we'll have to consider him questionable for Friday's game against the Grizzlies. With Gordon on the sidelines, we'll continue to get a heavy dose of James Harden on offense with guys like Corey Brewer, Sam Dekker and K.J. McDaniels having the opportunity for some extended minutes off the bench.

Eric Gordon (sprained left big toe) has officially been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Hornets.

Mike D'Antoni said that Gordon was closer to doubtful when he was dubbed a game-time call, so it's not surprising to see the Sixth Man of the Year candidate hit the sidelines. Gordon's minutes will likely be divvied up between K.J. McDaniels, Corey Brewer and Tyler Ennis, with McDaniels offering the most upside out of that group. James Harden's usage rate jumps to 37.6 sans Gordon, so he'll be one of the primary beneficiaries in Gordon's absence.

Eric Gordon (toe) will be a game-time call for Tuesday's matchup with the Hornets.

Mike D'Antoni said that he's closer to doubtful, so Gordon owners should probably plan on being without his services tonight. D'Antoni also said he wasn't sure who would pick up most of Gordon's minutes, but gave K.J. McDaniels and Tyler Ennis as potential options. Corey Brewer should also have the opportunity for some extended minutes sans Gordon, while James Harden will be working with an even more robust usage rate.

Eric Gordon (sprained left big toe) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. Charlotte after missing practice on Monday and Tuesday's shootaround.

The Rockets have a back-to-back on Tuesday and Wednesday, so they may err on the side of caution with Gordon on Tuesday night. Gordon, who currently leads the NBA in made 3-pointers this season (145) is averaging 30.6 minutes per game. If he is unable to suit up, Corey Brewer, Patrick Beverly, Sam Dekker and K.J. McDaniels would likely divvy up those minutes.
