Eric Gordon, who has been out for two weeks after spraining his ankle in the Rockets’ final restart scrimmage, is expected to return on Wednesday against the Pacers.
Assuming things go as expected, when Gordon returns on Wednesday the Rockets will be at full strength for the first time in the seeding games, less than a week before Monday’s start of the postseason schedule. The challenge will be getting their nine-man rotation in sync with one game, at most, at full strength. There will be weekend practices before playoff games begin, but there is uncertainty whether Gordon will have enough time to be sharp for the start of the postseason. Regardless, the veteran guard should provide more depth and scoring for a Rockets team that looks poised to advance deep into the playoffs.
