Eric Gordon hit just 2-of-11 shots (both 3-pointers) for eight points, six rebounds, four assists and a steal on Wednesday.
He's really struggling with his shot right now, hitting just 19-of-61 shots over his last five games, good for just 31 percent. He's averaging 12.0 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 3.2 3-pointers over that stretch, so if his shot ever comes back, he could start putting up some really nice numbers.

Eric Gordon was fantastic against the Heat on Saturday with 24 points, four rebounds, six assists, one steal and six 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

This was a huge game from Gordon and the team is really, really going to need him to produce on offense. EJ (Eric Jr.) is launching a ton of treys right now and he's been a top-50 player in the past month. His injury history is behind him for now, so he's a must-start player in standard leagues.
Feb 21 - 10:54 PM

Eric Gordon, who hit a career-high seven 3-pointers and scored 31 points on Monday, hit just 2-of-10 shots (both 3-pointers) for six points on Wednesday.

Forget about this one and look ahead to his next one. Gordon's been playing very well, and the Pelicans just didn't have anything to offer against the Pacers.
Feb 12 - 12:51 AM

Eric Gordon hit a career-high seven 3-pointers in the Pelicans' 100-96 home loss to the Jazz on Monday, finishing with 31 points on 9-of-14 shooting, three rebounds, three assists and two steals.

Gordon had six turnovers as well but who's counting. He and Tyreke Evans (18 points, seven rebounds, 10 assists, one steal, one block, two threes) are loving life with most of the starting unit on the sidelines.
Feb 10 - 3:02 AM

Eric Gordon made 1-of-10 from the field for three points against the Bulls on Saturday with three rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

He was on regression alert despite his recent increase in efficiency, making 46.0 percent from the field in his previous 10 with averages of 15.3 points, 2.8 boards, 6.0 assists and 0.6 steals. His shot distribution has been the same, so he'll likely be back around his season shooting of 42 percent soon. Still, he's worth owning in standard leagues with Jrue Holiday (leg) out indefinitely.
Feb 7 - 9:06 PM

Eric Gordon hit just 3-of-12 shots and a 3-pointer for seven points, three rebounds, seven assists and a steal in Wednesday's loss to the Thunder.

He was due for an off night after scoring in double figures in four straight, but is still averaging 15.8 points, 3.0 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 2.8 3-pointers over his last five games. Gordon, Tyreke Evans and Omer Asik combined to hit just 9-of-32 shots tonight, which is why they lost to the Thunder. Gordon should bounce back in the next one.
Feb 5 - 12:53 AM

Eric Gordon scored 28 points on 10-of-20 shooting (including five threes) with two rebounds, seven assists and one steal in Friday's win over the Clippers.

With Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday out his touches were bound to increase and he's doing his part to give something back at the tail-end of a tumultuous contract. He's a must-start player until further notice.
Jan 31 - 1:45 AM

Eric Gordon scored 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting (including two threes) with two rebounds, five assists and one steal over 35 minutes in Friday's road win over the Wolves.

Gordon is going to be worth having in lineups at least until Jrue Holiday returns and if Ryan Anderson misses more time with his ankle injury he could have a nice little run here. Anthony Davis added 21 and 12 with two steals and a block, and Tyreke Evans is also enjoying life without Holiday as he poured in 17 points with eight assists in an otherwise full line.
Jan 24 - 2:48 AM

Eric Gordon stayed hot on Wednesday with 17 points, five rebounds, 10 assists, a steal and a 3-pointer on 7-of-13 shooting.

He's healthy and on fire right now, and with Jrue Holiday expected out for the next two to four weeks, Gordon should now be owned in all leagues.
Jan 21 - 11:41 PM

Eric Gordon scored 20 points with one rebound, five assists and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Knicks during a 99-92 loss on Monday.

He's actually looked much better in his past four games with more work off the dribble. In those four games without Jrue Holiday (ankle), Gordon averaged 15.5 points, 4.0 boards, 4.5 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.8 triples. He's worth owning in standard leagues until we get a target date on Holiday.
Jan 19 - 9:03 PM

Eric Gordon put up 14 points on 6-of-15 shooting, with five rebounds, five assists, one steal, one 3-pointer, and five turnovers during Sunday's win over the Raptors.

Gordon has been tasked with some more ball-handling responsibilities with Jrue Holiday (ankle) out of the lineup, which unfortunately has resulted in him averaging 3.8 turnovers per game. However, he's still putting up serviceable averages of 15.8 points, 4.0 assists, and 2.0 three-pointers per game over that span, so he's still worth owning in most leagues.
Jan 18 - 6:51 PM

Eric Gordon scored 16 points on 5-of-16 from the field during a 96-81 loss to the 76ers on Friday, adding six rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He matched his season high in rebounds and was on the ball a heck of a lot more tonight. Gordon has seen a spike in his usage rate since the Jrue Holiday (ankle) injury, so he should be worth starting in standard leagues for now.
Jan 16 - 10:21 PM

Eric Gordon scored 12 points with four rebounds, five assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Pistons on Wednesday.

He was not heavily involved while the Pelicans were at full strength earlier this season, but now he should get several more touches with Jrue Holiday (ankle) out. Gordon isn't exactly the most durable guy himself, but he should be able to post top-100 value while Holiday is out.
Jan 14 - 10:07 PM

Eric Gordon scored 21 points against the Celtics on Monday with two rebounds, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

The Pelicans are going to need him to play more with Jrue Holiday (leg) suffering an injury. Gordon has been extremely quiet on the season due to getting less shots, but that could change with Tyreke Evans running the offense more. If you need scoring and treys, give EG a look.
Jan 12 - 11:06 PM

Eric Gordon started at shooting guard and had 14 points, two rebounds, four assists, a steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers in Wednesday's loss.

Gordon is probably worth a pick up now that he's healthy, starting and capable of lines like this on a regular basis, but the fact remains his next injury could be just around the corner.
