Eric Gordon scored 14 points with five rebounds, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday.
He's finally out of his slump over his last five, averaging 12.8 points, 2.8 boards, 3.2 assists and 2.4 treys on 43.1 percent from the field in that span. With Ryan Anderson (ankle) likely to miss time, Gordon should be looking at some added scoring opportunities. He's still more of a specialist. Mar 25 - 2:27 AM

Eric Gordon scored 18 points with four 3-pointers in Monday's 125-124 win against the Nuggets.

Gordon has been able to coexist with Lou Williams since the Rockets acquired the latter from the Lakers. However, Gordon is averaging just 12.8 points per game in March, his worst month of the season in terms of points. He remains a useful option in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, although his shot attempts are down since Williams arrived on the scene.
Mar 21 - 12:45 AM

Eric Gordon scored 10 points with three rebounds, four assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Lakers on Wednesday.

Despite coach Mike D'Antoni saying Lou Williams coming to town will help Gordon, that hasn't been the case at all. Gordon is really just a specialist for 3-pointers right now and hasn't been a top-100 player since the break.
Mar 16 - 1:18 AM

Eric Gordon made 3-of-14 from the field for eight points with one rebound, two assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 23 minutes against the Bulls on Friday.

HIs shots are down since Lou Williams arrived and he's also in a small slump, making just 6-of-24 (25 percent) from deep in his last three games. Gordon hasn't even been worth owning in his last 15 games, so he's really just a specialist right now. That awesome December seems like a distant memory.
Mar 10 - 11:24 PM

Eric Gordon will move back to the bench against the Bulls on Friday.

He played a whopping 40 minutes in the starting lineup on Wednesday with Ryan Anderson out. Gordon's scoring and usage have both dropped since the All-Star break despite his increase in minutes. He may only be a 3-point specialist going forward.
Mar 10 - 7:28 PM

Eric Gordon started vs. the Jazz on Wednesday, playing 40 minutes to finish with 14 points, two 3-pointers, two rebounds, two assists and two steals.

Ryan Anderson (back) was out tonight, helping Gordon play at least 34 minutes for the third straight game. Ryno is questionable to travel with the team to Chicago for Friday's game, and if he can't suit up Gordon stands to gain in a favorable matchup. Owners should keep a close eye on the injury report following Thursday's practice.
Mar 9 - 12:28 AM

Eric Gordon will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Jazz, with Ryan Anderson (back) unavailable.

Through five starts this season, Gordon has posted averages of 15.8 points, 2.8 triples, 3.1 boards, 2.3 dimes and 1.9 turnovers per contest on 39.3 percent shooting, which interestingly are slightly worse than his numbers as a reserve. Gordon should be activated in all season-long settings, but with a tough matchup against Utah, he's not the most appealing DFS target.
Mar 8 - 6:30 PM

Eric Gordon hit six 3-pointers on his way to 18 points vs. the Grizzlies on Saturday.

Gordon now has 10 games with 6+ 3-pointers this season which leads all NBA players -- Stephen Curry is second with nine such games. All nine of his shot attempts were from deep, but that's not a huge surprise on a Houston team that wants to attempt 50+ 3-pointers every game. He added a couple rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block, and while his ceiling is lower playing next to Lou Williams in the second unit, he's still worth owning in standard leagues.
Mar 5 - 12:43 AM

Eric Gordon scored nine points on 3-of-11 shooting with two assists, one rebound and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes vs. Indiana on Monday.

It looks like Gordon is the biggest loser from the Lou Williams trade. Williams is a usage rate monster in the fourth quarter and is averaging 24.0 points, 1.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 4.7 3-pointers in his first three games as a Rocket, and a lot of his shot attempts will come at the expense of Gordon. He's still worth holding onto, but his floor is noticeably lower going forward.
Feb 28 - 1:19 AM

Eric Gordon will come off the bench on Saturday.

Patrick Beverley (groin) changed his mind and will start, so Gordon will be back in his normal role. He should be taking a hit in production with Lou Williams in the mix.
Feb 25 - 8:00 PM

Eric Gordon will start against the Wolves on Saturday.

With Pat Beverley (groin) out and Lou Williams a very capable ball handler in the second unit, the Rockets will get their sixth man in the starting lineup. Gordon should see minutes in the mid 30s, but he actually shouldn't benefit too much here. His usage rate and efficiency take major hits next to Harden, but of course that would change if he's hot.
Feb 25 - 7:21 PM

Coach Mike D'Antoni said the Lou Williams acquisition should help Eric Gordon clinch Sixth Man of the Year.

This is a little surprising to see D'Antoni sound so confident because the numbers suggest otherwise. Nobody else in the second unit is even close to Gordon's usage, so adding a scorer like Lou Williams should affect his scoring negatively. Furthermore, Gordon has a 32.6 usage rate when he's not with James Harden compared to a 19.3 with him -- his efficiency is better too. We're expecting Gordon to drop in productivity and it doesn't help he hasn't been very healthy in 2017.
Feb 22 - 3:40 PM

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

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.
