Eric Gordon tweaked his ankle in Monday's 107-106 win over the Celtics, but he said he's "fine."

He expects to practice on Tuesday and play on Wednesday vs. the Lakers, but we will put him on the injury report to be safe. Gordon scored 19 points on 6-of-11 shooting in the win with two assists, one rebound, one block and four triples in 31 minutes. He's scored 18 or more points in five straight games and needs to be in all fantasy lineups while he's hot.
Dec 6 - 12:02 AM

Eric Gordon scored 23 points during a 132-127 double-overtime win over the Warriors on Thursday, adding one rebound, five assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

He hit some clutch buckets with five points in OT and six points in the fourth. The Rockets snapped an eight-game losing streak against the Warriors and are now 12-7 despite a tough schedule to kick off this season. The schedule makers also gave the Rockets a tough task with a game in altitude following a double-OT game against the Warriors. As for Gordon, he's posting seventh-round value on the season and should be around there all year.
Dec 2 - 2:50 AM

Eric Gordon hit 8-of-17 shots and four 3-pointers for 24 points, two rebounds and one assist in Tuesday's loss to the Jazz.

Gordon had 26 points on Sunday and is hot, averaging 21.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 4.7 3-pointers over his last three games. Prior to that he was cold, scoring just nine total points on Nov. 21 and 23, hitting just 4-of-18 shots.
Nov 30 - 12:09 AM

Eric Gordon thrived in 30 bench minutes vs. Portland, scoring 26 points on 9-of-15 shooting with a 6-of-9 mark from downtown, five rebounds, four assists, one steal and just one turnover.

Gordon's scoring outburst isn't a complete surprise, as the Blazers have ceded the sixth-most points to opposing benches this season. His off-ball movement got him free for plenty of open looks, and tonight's production was sweet relief for his fantasy owners -- he came in shooting 29.0 percent in his previous three games.
Nov 28 - 12:08 AM

Eric Gordon had another disappointing line on Wednesday, coming off the bench for nine points on 4-of-13 shooting with two assists, one board, one steal and one block.

Gordon played 28 minutes but he's taken a hit since Pat Beverley returned, and is averaging a mere 4.5 points in his past two games. Houston has scored 36.8 percent of their points off 3-pointers, the highest mark in the league, which is the saving grace for Gordon's fantasy value -- at worst, he's a great 3-point specialist.
Nov 24 - 12:08 AM

Eric Gordon went scoreless against the Pistons in 29 minutes on Monday, adding one rebound, two assists, one block and one steal.

Shooting guards are the most inconsistent players and bench players will have quiet nights, so this was just a perfect storm of bad for Gordon. He was coming off a 20-point game on Saturday, so he was just on the other end of the spectrum tonight. Gordon won't win your league, but he's worth owning and his minutes haven't suffered too much since Pat Beverley returned.
Nov 22 - 1:14 AM

Eric Gordon kept it going on the bench against the Jazz on Saturday with 20 points, seven rebounds, six assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He's doing just fine in his bench role. In his previous bench games, Gordon averaged 17.3 points, 3.3 boards, 2.3 assists, 0.5 steals and 3.5 treys. Keep him rolling in all leagues as a 3-pointers specialist. It's not a bad idea to sell high given his injury history.
Nov 19 - 8:38 PM

Eric Gordon finished Wednesday's loss in OKC with 13 points, five boards, four assists and one block, but he shot just 5-of-20 from the field (3-of-12 from deep).

This might be Gordon's last start for the foreseeable future, since Patrick Beverley is expected to start alongside James Harden in his season debut on Thursday. Gordon could see his usage pick up during second-unit minutes sans James Harden, however, so his owners shouldn't panic based on the role change.
Nov 16 - 11:07 PM

Eric Gordon returned to the starting lineup on Monday and hit 6-of-12 shots and four 3-pointers for 16 points in 27 minutes.

He didn't do much more than that, but he's rolling, hitting 16 3-pointers and scoring in double digits in four straight games. It really doesn't matter if he's starting or coming off the bench, as he's getting open looks from downtown either way.
Nov 14 - 11:42 PM

Eric Gordon will return to the starting lineup for Monday's game against the 76ers.

This doesn't significantly impact Gordon's value as he was already playing starters minutes, but it is a plus that he'll be starting in an extremely favorable matchup against Philadelphia tonight. Corey Brewer will return to the bench, but he should continue to see roughly 15 minutes of action.
Nov 14 - 6:20 PM

Eric Gordon hit 10-of-16 shots and 7-of-12 3-pointers for 27 points, five rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block off the bench in Saturday's loss to the Spurs.

Gordon had been in a bit of a 'bench slump' after getting kicked out of the starting lineup, scoring 9, 11 and 15 points in his previous three games. He was back on track tonight, and even though he's coming off the bench, he's still being treated to starter's minutes.
Nov 13 - 1:15 AM

Eric Gordon came off Houston's bench on Wednesday for 15 points on 5-of-14 shooting adding two 3-pointers, two rebounds, two assists and a rare block in 34 minutes of action.

Corey Brewer is starting ahead of Gordon for defensive purposes, but it's not a bad situation for fantasy purposes. With the second unit Gordon gets extra minutes out of James Harden's shadow offensively, and his usage rate should reflect the change.
Nov 10 - 12:25 AM

Eric Gordon will come off the bench on Monday vs. the Wizards.

It's not a demotion, as the Rockets are inserting Corey Brewer into the starting lineup to guard John Wall -- James Harden isn't exactly known for his defense. Gordon will still see plenty of minutes and his season-long owners can leave him in their active lineups. He's averaging 16.2 points, 2.2 assists and 2.5 treys this season.
Nov 7 - 11:01 AM

Eric Gordon hit just 3-of-11 shots and went 0-for-4 from downtown to finish with nine points, two rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 30 minutes of Saturday's loss to the Hawks.

That makes six straight losses to Atlanta for Houston, while this was Gordon's first struggle of the season. He basically played his worst game of the year and corralled season lows across the board, except for the three blocks. And those were a total fluke, as he hadn't blocked a shot thus far until tonight. He should bounce back in the next one and it's possible the two free nights off in the ATL took a toll on Gordon tonight.
