Eric Gordon won the 3-Point Contest on Saturday night.
He tied Kyrie Irving in the final, but dominated in the overtime frame to pass Irving even before the final rack. Gordon actually hasn't shot the ball as well as earlier this year. In fact, he shot 44.1 percent from the field in December, 40.1 percent from there in January, and is at just 37.5 percent this month. Some of this could be due to his injury, so hopefully the time off gets him going again. Feb 18 - 9:31 PM

Date:

Eric Gordon (back) returned to action vs. Miami on Wednesday, finishing with 12 points on 4-of-15 shooting, three 3-pointers, two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 32 minutes.

Gordon missed the past two games and he has to be thrilled that the All-Star break has arrived, giving him time for his troublesome back to fully heal. The Sixth-Man candidate has a long injury history and doesn't offer much beyond 3-pointers, but he's done enough to carve out late-middle round value in most formats.
Feb 15 - 11:35 PM

Eric Gordon (back) will play against the Heat on Wednesday.

He has been on track to play all day and Gordon himself said his back is fine. Considering his injury history and how this has bothered him for a few weeks on and off, so the Rockets may be a little careful here. Sam Dekker will take a hit with Gordon and Ryan Anderson back in the lineup.

Eric Gordon (back) is on track to play Wednesday vs. Miami.

"It's fine," Gordon said of his back. "I've dealt with this before. It's something not really to worry about at all. So far, everything's going in the right direction to trying to play. We'll try out everything and see how it feels on the court. I don't think it'll be ongoing." Gordon added that the back issue was just a "minor thing," and Mike D'Antoni described his absence over the past two games as precautionary, so it looks like Gordon will be back on the court for Houston's final game before the break.
Feb 15 - 10:42 AM

Eric Gordon (back) practiced on Tuesday and expects to play Wednesday vs. the Heat.

Gordon has missed two straight games due to the back issue. After a hot start to the season, Gordon has cooled off a bit of late. He is averaging 14.9 points and shooting just 37.7 percent from the floor and 29.6 percent from 3-point territory over the last nine games he has appeared in. Hopefully, the back injury won't trail him into the second half of the season.
Feb 14 - 1:13 PM

Eric Gordon (back) said he's hopeful of returning to the lineup on Wednesday vs. the Heat.

He's missed two games in a row and a total of four games due to his back issue, but the Rockets are off for a few days and Gordon is considered day-to-day. The Rockets only play once in Week 17, so they could be cautious and hold him out as well. For what it's worth, Gordon is still hoping to participate in the 3-point contest at All-Star weekend.

Eric Gordon (back) will not play against the Suns on Saturday.

This will be his second game out of the lineup. Trevor Ariza talked about other players having to step up at shootaround, so that suggests Gordon could miss more time. Sam Dekker and Corey Brewer will pick up the slack with Dekker having more fantasy appeal.
Feb 11 - 7:20 PM

Eric Gordon (back) will be a game-time decision on Saturday vs. the Suns.

Gordon did not play Thursday vs. the Hornets. Coach Mike D'Antoni said Gordon continues to get therapy on his injured back. If Gordon is unable to go on Saturday, Sam Dekker, Corey Brewer and Patrick Beverly will all see an uptick in minutes.
Feb 11 - 10:42 AM

Eric Gordon (back) is questionable to face the Suns on Saturday and did not practice on Friday.

He's been dealing with this back injury on and off for about two weeks. Gordon did not play on Thursday and will likely be looking at a game-time decision. Sam Dekker was a letdown in that win against the Hornets, but he should be better in a favorable matchup. Corey Brewer has also stepped up for the Rockets. The sell-high moment has passed on Gordon.
Feb 10 - 2:41 PM

Eric Gordon (back) has been ruled out against the Hornets on Thursday night.

He just hasn't been right since he popped up on the injury report for a back injury back on Jan. 25. Gordon was able to avoid the injury bug in the 2016 portion of the season, but the oft-injured guard's luck may be running out. His owners can still hold him, but don't expect him to be the player he was in December. Sam Dekker benefits and is worth a look for owners needing a short-term boost. He's also a DFS option.
Feb 9 - 5:44 PM

Eric Gordon (back) is questionable for Thursday's game vs. Charlotte.

He's dealing with soreness again and missed the morning shootaround. Gordon has never been the most durable player and he missed two games in late January with this issue, so it's worrying that his back is still flaring up on him. Don't be surprised if the Rockets hold him out to be safe tonight. If he sits, Sam Dekker gets the biggest bump in value and would be worth a look in DFS or if you need to stream some triples in season-long formats.
Feb 9 - 11:59 AM

Eric Gordon scored 21 points with four assists, one rebound, one block and five triples vs. the Bulls on Friday.

He played 34 minutes in the overtime win, shooting 8-of-17 from the field with three turnovers. Gordon was just 6-of-27 from beyond the arc in his previous three games since returning from his back injury, so it's good to see him back on track. He gets a few days of rest before Tuesday's matchup with the Magic.
Feb 4 - 12:46 AM

Eric Gordon hit 4-of-14 shots for 13 points with three assists, three rebounds, one steal and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes on Thursday against the Hawks.

Gordon struggled with his shot tonight, but did log in 30 minutes which is the most he's played since returning from a back injury. He will not light up the scoreboard, but he is a great source of 3-pointers, making at least one in all but three games this season. He has attempted 27 shots from beyond the arc over the last three games, but has only hit six of them as he tries to shake off the rust from missing two games.
Feb 2 - 11:13 PM

Eric Gordon (back) returned to action on Sunday with 14 points on 4-of-11 FGs and 5-of-7 FTs, three assists, one rebound and one block in 26 minutes.

Three-point shooting has been the story of the season for Gordon, as his 167 made triples is second only to Steph Curry (188) for the league lead. He's also been surprisingly healthy, missing four games, and this back injury only cost him two games. He's safe to start in Houston's upcoming three-game week.
Jan 29 - 8:40 PM

Eric Gordon (back) is "good to go" for Sunday's game vs. the Pacers.

He will be returning from a two-game absence, but there's no word of any potential restrictions yet. This is a hometown game for Gordon, so he had some extra motivation to return. He's a little risky in DFS, but season-long owners shouldn't hesitate to deploy him. Sam Dekker loses a lot of appeal with Gordon back, but it makes sense to see what his role looks like on Sunday before making any roster moves.
