Gordon hit some clutch 3-point shots during crunch time to ensure the win for Houston, and the Rockets' bench was absolutely crucial to their success tonight with most of the Houston starters struggling. Lou Williams was another spark plug with the second unit, netting 18 points in 32 minutes off the bench to go with seven boards, two assists, one 3-pointer, two steals and one turnover.

Date:

Eric Gordon returned from a rest day on Monday vs. the Clippers and scored 17 points on 5-of-13 shooting.

He only played 24 minutes in the blowout loss, so that might increase his chances of playing in the season finale on Wednesday vs. the Wolves. Gordon hit all five of his free throws and added five rebounds, one block and two triples. If he does play on Wednesday, don't expect a full workload from him.
Apr 11 - 1:33 AM

Eric Gordon and Trevor Ariza will start on Monday vs. the Clippers.

Both players are returning from a maintenance day. While Gordon and Ariza will likely play fewer minutes than they normally would with the No. 3 seed locked up, they are still worth deploying in standard leagues. James Harden, Ryan Anderson and Chinanu Onuaku are also starting.
Apr 10 - 10:42 PM

Eric Gordon (rest), Trevor Ariza (rest) and Nene (fingers) will not play Sunday vs. Sacramento.

With Gordon on the sidelines, there will be more opportunities for Lou Williams in the second unit, and Ariza's absence could result in Troy Williams sliding back into the starting five. Clint Capela and Montrezl Harrell will man the five-spot with Nene out. Gordon should be back in action for Monday's game against the Clippers, but he'll have a minutes limit for the remainder of the season.

Eric Gordon scored 13 points with five rebounds and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Pistons on Friday.

He is going to get at least one game off on Sunday or Monday, so keep an eye out for that. Gordon isn't really worth owning now that he is going to get some time off.
Apr 7 - 11:49 PM

Coach Mike D'Antoni said Eric Gordon (rest) would sit out either Sunday vs. Sacramento or Monday vs. the Clippers, and would have his minutes reduced in the remaining games he did play.

Gordon has struggled with his shot of late. Over Houston's last five games, he is averaging 14.2 points and shooting just 33.8 percent from the floor, including 30.8 percent from 3-point territory. With Houston locked into the three seed, the Rockets hope some rest will leave him fresh and ready for the postseason. Lou Williams should see additional minutes. Rarely used reserve Bobby Brown might see some court time as well.
Apr 7 - 6:28 PM

Eric Gordon came off Houston's bench on Wednesday, scoring 11 points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and a pair of 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

Gordon had been starting for the short-handed Rockets, but it was Troy Williams who got the nod tonight alongside Pat Beverley, James Harden, Trevor Ariza and Clint Capela. The bad news is that Gordon went 2-of-14 from the field, but that shouldn't shock his owners since he was just 42.1 percent in his past 10 games.
Apr 6 - 12:23 AM

Eric Gordon will return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.

This is a pretty good indication that both Trevor Ariza (personal) and James Harden (illness) will be back in action tonight after missing Sunday's game. Gordon's numbers with the second unit are actually better than his averages as a starter this season, so him coming off the bench is not a negative thing.
Apr 5 - 12:11 PM

Eric Gordon helped Houston hold on for a win in Phoenix on Sunday, scoring 22 points with two 3-pointers, six rebounds, five assists, one steal and three blocks.

The blocks tied Gordon's season-high and it was a strong game for fantasy purposes, even though he shot just 9-of-24 from the field. He's averaging nearly 35 minutes in the past six games and has been starting in a small lineup with Ryan Anderson (ankle) on the shelf, which is enough for low-end value thanks to his scoring, FT percentages, and value-salvaging 3-pointers.
Apr 2 - 11:48 PM

Eric Gordon scored 24 points on 7-of-13 shooting Sunday, to go with four 3-pointers, two boards, one assist and two turnovers through 36 minutes as a starter.

Ryan Anderson (ankle) is set to spend the next two weeks on the sidelines, so Gordon will be starting moving forward, and his minutes and scoring opportunities figure to rise with Ryno on the shelf. He also was a perfect 6-of-6 from the charity stripe in this one, giving EG a sterling true shooting percentage of 76.7. Additionally, Gordon has suited up for a total of 67 games this season, which is the most games he's played in a single season since his rookie year.
Mar 26 - 6:36 PM

Eric Gordon will start vs. the Thunder on Sunday.

Ryan Anderson (ankle) is likely going to miss around two weeks according to coach Mike D'Antoni, so Gordon, Lou Williams and Sam Dekker are all looking at a bump in minutes. Gordon is averaging 12.8 points, 2.8 boards, 3.2 assists and 2.4 treys on 43.1 percent shooting over his last five games, and with four games on the schedule next week, his owners should be in great shape in terms of 3-pointers.
Mar 26 - 1:55 PM

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.
