Eric Gordon scored 27 points on 9-of-12 shots against the Pelicans on Monday.

There's nothing like a revenge game to get a player going. Gordon was averaging 12.3 points, 1.8 boards, 1.5 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.5 treys on 34.2 percent shooting from the field over his last six games, but hopefully tonight's big line will get him going again. He hit five triples in 36 minutes with two rebounds, one assist and one turnover and gets a matchup vs. Charlotte on Wednesday.
Dec 11 - 11:19 PM

Eric Gordon scored 12 points with two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

He's really come out flat since returning from injury six games ago, averaging 12.3 points, 1.8 boards, 1.5 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.5 treys on 34.2 percent from the field. Saying Gordon has already peaked is a fairly ice-cold take and he's a drop candidate in shallower leagues, assuming you're good with treys.
Dec 10 - 4:47 AM

Eric Gordon hit just 2-of-12 shots for 10 points, four rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 32 minutes off the bench on Thursday.

Both of his hits were 3-pointers and he's cooled off after a hot start, mainly because Chris Paul and James Harden are doing so much great work in the backcourt. Hopefully you were able to sell high on Gordon when he was rolling without Paul in the lineup. Gordon was nice on Sunday with 22 points and a couple treys on 9-of-18 shooting, but hasn't scored more than 13 points in any other game since Nov. 12, or four days before Paul made his season debut.
Dec 8 - 1:38 AM

Eric Gordon got back on track Sunday with 22 points on 9-of-17 shooting, two 3-pointers, one rebound, one steal and one block in 30 minutes vs. the Lakers.

Gordon has been out of sync over the past six games, as he adjusts to a backup role with Chris Paul healthy. He was averaging 11.2 points on 31.4 percent shooting in that span, so it was nice to see him knocking down his shots even if the supporting stats weren't there. Gordon was an obvious sell-high candidate in the first month of the season, but that opportunity has passed.
Dec 4 - 12:20 AM

Eric Gordon scored 10 points with one rebound, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday.

He has trended down recently, but he's actually only played eight total minutes next to both James Harden and Chris Paul this year. Three of Gordon's four worst games for true shooting percentage are in each of his last three, so he's just not making shots. He's still worth owning in standard leagues, but it's fair to say he's peaked already.
Nov 29 - 11:59 PM

Eric Gordon returned on Saturday with eight points, two assists, one steal and seven 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday.

It's great news that Gordon didn't have to miss more than one game because he has been injury prone in the past. However, he really hasn't seen much run with Chris Paul yet, so that figures to hurt his overall usage. Expect Gordon to trend down to be more of a three-point specialist.
Nov 25 - 11:17 PM

Eric Gordon (sore calf) and Ryan Anderson (illness) will play vs. the Knicks on Saturday.

Both guys practiced on Friday and Mike D'Antoni didn't mention any limitations, so they should both be ready to roll in a favorable matchup tonight. Deploy them as usual.
Nov 25 - 6:20 PM

Eric Gordon (sore calf) and Ryan Anderson (illness) are practicing Friday and are expected to play Saturday vs. the Knicks, according to Rockets beat writer Jonathan Feigen.

Gordon was unable to play on Wednesday, but fortunately, it appears it will be just a one-game absence. The Rockets didn't miss either player on Wednesday, as they blew out the Nuggets by 30 points. Gordon had started 13 of the first 14 games he appeared in this season, before moving into the sixth-man role last week. Gordon should continue to see plenty of minutes and scoring opportunities as long as he is healthy.
Nov 24 - 12:11 PM

Eric Gordon (sore calf) and Ryan Anderson (illness) are out for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.

The good news on this is that it's just being called soreness for Gordon. Plus, the Rockets don't play again until Saturday, so he's basically getting a week off from game action. With him out, Bobby Brown or even Troy Williams could be added to the rotation, or the Rockets could add more minutes to their usual rotation. P.J. Tucker is going to start tonight.
Nov 22 - 6:43 PM

Eric Gordon (calf) and Ryan Anderson (illness) are doubtful to play against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

This is a new injury for Gordon and he may have suffered it on Saturday during a blowout win against the Grizzlies. Gordon has really struggled to stay healthy in his pre-Rockets days, so hopefully this isn't the start of something that lingers. With him out, P.J. Tucker figures to step up the most while Bobby Brown could get in the rotation. Chris Paul is also expected to play 28 minutes.
Nov 22 - 6:20 PM

Eric Gordon ended up with 12 points across 29 minutes off the bench in Saturday's win in Memphis.

Gordon wasn't terribly efficient, as he made just 3-of-10 from behind the arc while missing his only attempt from inside the paint. However, he still ended up with a game-best plus-27 rating. He was seeing extended minutes with the game out of reach in the second half, as the Rockets were able to give Chris Paul and James Harden rest.
Nov 18 - 11:48 PM

Eric Gordon scored 13 points off the bench against the Suns on Thursday, adding two rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

If not for garbage time, Gordon would've probably been right at his normal usage and playing time. However, this was certainly a good matchup and Chris Paul will have to take a least a piece of Gordon's 33.3 minutes and 22.1 points per game. Gordon should still have a chance to score in the teens, but expect him to trend down in most fantasy leagues.
Nov 17 - 1:22 AM

Chris Paul, James Harden, Trevor Ariza, Ryan Anderson and Clint Capela will start against the Suns on Thursday.

That means Eric Gordon will move back to his sixth-man role and that should continue going forward. He was absolutely on fire coming into the week, but he scored just 12 points on Tuesday in a loss to the Raptors. He was an obviously sell-high candidate, but he should still have enough value to use in most matchups.
Nov 16 - 9:48 PM

Eric Gordon cooled off vs. the Raptors on Tuesday, scoring 12 points with three assists, one rebound and one steal in 33 minutes.

This was his first game without a 3-pointer since the season opener. Prior to this dud, Gordon was one of the hottest SGs in the NBA with 22.9 points and 4.0 triples per game which ranked 2nd in the NBA behind James Harden. With Chris Paul (knee) targeting a return to action on Thursday, Gordon's owners should expect a dip in value, so his sell-high window is closing.
