  • Eric Gordon - G - Houston Rockets

    Eric Gordon (rest) returned from a one-game absence and scored 12 points to go with three treys, two rebounds and not much else in Friday’s win over the Spurs.

    It’s good to see Gordon back but he’s a points and 3s specialist while the main guys are healthy. Chris Paul added 18 points (no 3s), five assists, a steal and a block for a pretty quiet game.

    Eric Gordon (rest) is out for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.

    With Gordon out there will be roughly an additional 31 mpg to go around. Danuel House, who has been on fire since returning to the Rockets, could slide into a starting role and is worth a look as a streamer. Gerald Green, Iman Shumpert and Austin Rivers will see an increse in playing time with Gordon out as well.

  • Eric Gordon - G - Houston Rockets

    Eric Gordon is expected to play on Tuesday against the Hawks but he will rest against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    This is consistent with what Mike D’Antoni said recently about his intention to rest his veterans down the road. Austin Rivers and Kenneth Faried took the day off on Sunday and it will now be the turn of Gordon tomorrow night at Memphis. Danuel House seems like someone to target in deeper leagues as he has been impressive upon his return to the Rockets.

    Eric Gordon will start against the Wolves on Sunday, moving Danuel House to the bench.

    House started on Friday but the return of Chris Paul (rest) will reshuffle the rotation a bit. Things may still change with James Harden (neck) questionable for tomorrow, but as of right now it looks like the Rockets will be at full strength. Mike D'Antoni said that House will play a "significant" role in the rotation whether he starts or comes off the bench, so deep-league players can feel free to scoop him up.

  • Eric Gordon - G - Houston Rockets

    Eric Gordon hit five threes on Monday vs. the Hornets on his way to 22 points in the win.

    Gordon shot 7-for-14 from the field, so it was a good one for those that started him. Chris Paul had a decent game as well, with 10 points, 10 boards and four dimes.

  • Eric Gordon - G - Houston Rockets

    Eric Gordon led the Rockets with 26 points on 10-of-20 shooting in a 94-93 win over the Mavs on Sunday.

    He hit five triples and added three rebounds and one steal to the box score. Although he has become more of a middle-round value over the past two weeks, he is still a deeper league scoring and shooting specialist for the season. Owners can hope that this streak of middle-round value can last until the end of the season.

  • Eric Gordon - G - Houston Rockets

    Eric Gordon hit eight triples on Sunday against the Celtics to score 32 points with three assists, three boards and a steal.

    This is Gordon’s second time hitting eight triples in a game this year and this might have helped some owners in H2H leagues as Gordon only had four made triples on the week heading into today’s game. Gordon has been slumping this season, clocking in outside the top-150 but he’s been a top-100 asset over his previous two seasons. Look for him to continue to trend up over the closing months of the season.

  • Eric Gordon - G - Houston Rockets

    Eric Gordon (sore knee) will start vs. the Celtics on Sunday.

    Gordon will return to the starting lineup and although he's not shooting too well from the field as of late, he's still a top-80 player in standard leagues. He's averaging 3.0 triples and 2.0 steals over the past two weeks to go along with 15.3 points, 1.5 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 35.0 minutes. He's worth owning in all leagues and can be plugged into starting lineups today vs. the Celtics.

    Eric Gordon (sore knee) is probable to play against the Celtics on Sunday.

    Gordon missed only one game with the sore knee and looks to be good to go. He has shot a career-low 39.0 percent from the field this year with 14.4 shots per game but can't be dropped because he remains a top-10 player in 3-pointers made per game and has even averaged 2.0 steals over his last four.

    Gerald Green will replace Eric Gordon (sore knee) in the starting lineup on Thursday vs. the Heat.

    Green should see a nice run tonight, but his boom-or-bust nature doesn't make him a reliable streaming option.

    Eric Gordon will move into the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Hornets.

    No word on who will be heading to the bench, but it'd be a stunner if it wasn't Kenneth Faried. If you were considering Gordon for your lineups tonight perhaps this news will push you over the edge. His workload doesn't change much whether he starts or comes off the bench, but it's a much better matchup for a wing-heavy approach than a two-big one.

  • Eric Gordon - G - Houston Rockets

    Eric Gordon scored 16 points on 5-of-13 shooting with four 3-pointers, two rebounds, three assists and two steals on Monday.

    Gordon came off the bench, but still logged 32 minutes which means his role is the same. The Rockets are about as stable as they get in fantasy land and Gordon remains the same whether or not he starts.

  • Eric Gordon - G - Houston Rockets

    Eric Gordon scored 14 points on 4-of-12 shooting with two rebounds, two assists, two steals and four 3-pointers on Thursday.

    Gordon logged 39 minutes and was one of the few Rockets players outside of James Harden and Chris Paul that could get anything going from the perimeter. Now that the team is healthy his value will take a dip but he remains a decent source of triples because of the rate at which he shoots them.

    Eric Gordon (right knee soreness) returned from a one-game absence on Wednesday in a 127-101 win over the Kings and tallied 20 points (7-of-14 shooting), two rebounds and four 3-pointers.

    He usually brings a bit more to the table than just points and threes, so we'll give him a pass since it's his first game back. Iman Shumpert will see some minutes at both the two and three positions, allowing Gordon to rest his knee more.

  • Eric Gordon - G - Houston Rockets

    Eric Gordon is available and will start for the Rockets vs. the Kings on Wednesday after missing Monday's game with right knee soreness.

    Gordon will resume his role as a 3-point chucker for the Rockets in this one. Given that they'll need the floor spacing, it would be too much of surprise to see either him or James Harden get into a shootout with Buddy Hield in this one, so buckle up.
