    Eric Gordon (sore knee) left Monday's game against the Knicks early and will not return.

    Gordon started for Russell Westbrook but had one of his poorer starts with 16 points on just 4-of-13 shooting, one triple, two assists and two steals. Gordon did hit all seven free throws, at least. He'll likely find himself on coming off the bench by the Rockets' next game if he's healthy enough to play.

    Russell Westbrook (sore thumb) is a late scratch for Monday's game.

    Westbrook will miss this game with Eric Gordon starting in his place. Gordon should be in line for a nice performance against the Knicks.

    Eric Gordon (left leg contusion) returned to action on Saturday and put up 12 points (5-of-11 shooting) with three rebounds, three assists and two steals in 24 minutes off the bench.

    The Rockets made Gordon come off the bench since this was his first game back after missing three straight, leading all the way before the All-Star break. The 25 minutes are a good sign and the minutes will be there for him as long as he's healthy. That said, his not much more than a points-and-3s streamer in standard leagues.

    Eric Gordon (left leg contusion) will be playing for the Rockets on Saturday but will be coming off the bench.

    The return to action is good for his owners and the transition via an initial bench role is to be expected. Gordon is a legitimate third scoring option for the Rockets and his return will surely eat into the value of the likes of Ben McLemore.

    Eric Gordon (leg contusion) is being listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Jazz.

    There was some hope Gordon could return for this one after missing the prior three and this update does not rule that out. Gordon was a fringe standard league player as a three-point specialist prior to the additions of Jeff Green and DeMarre Carroll so he can be left on the waivers unless three-pointers is the only thing your team needs as he is averaging 3.2 of those per game this year.

    Eric Gordon (leg contusion) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Warriors.

    Gordon won't play in this one but could return as soon as Saturday. In the interim, the new arrivals in Houston, Jeff Green and DeMarre Carroll, will be available and may get into the game. The Rockets have somewhere between seven and 45 wing players so we'll see how that rotation shakes out today.

    Eric Gordon (left leg contusion) is questionable to play on Thursday against the Warriors.

    Gordon missed the two games leading into the All-Star break, so hopefully he's able to suit up tomorrow. He has a shot at late-round value in Houston's new all-wing rotation, though you can steer clear unless you need points and threes.

    Eric Gordon (leg contusion) will not play on Tuesday as the Rockets will hold him out through the All-Star break.

    Gordon will miss at least one more game but the long break should be enough to get him healthy for the stretch run. He's not a standard-league asset and you weren't likely relying on him this "week" anyway as Houston plays just once.

    Eric Gordon (leg contusion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus Jazz.

    We should see a fair amount of Austin Rivers, Ben McLemore and Danuel House with Gordon sidelined. All three are viable DFS and streaming options.

    According to coach Mike D'Antoni, he said that Eric Gordon had "several soreness and was favoring his left leg heading to the bus after the game.

    He can be dropped in standard leagues, since his 3s can be easily streamed from other sources. Gordon's history with leg injuries is almost encyclopedic. He's also a notoriously slow healer, so there could be a chance he's held out for a few games.

    Eric Gordon (leg) won't return Friday against the Suns.

    Austin Rivers started the second half in his place and figures to benefit the most from a Gordon absence of any length. That being said, the Rockets' entire roster consists of guards and small forwards so it's anyone's guess.

    Eric Gordon scored 15 points 5-of-10 shooting with two rebounds, one assist and five triples on Thursday.

    Flash Gordon shot the lights out, but we know he can't do this consistently. He'll more likely tank your percentages than hit five triples again and we just need to look back to last game where he went 0-for-12 from deep to see that.

  • Russell Westbrook
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Russell Westbrook (left thumb) is listed questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Lakers.

    Westbrook injured his left thumb towards the end of Sunday's game and had to miss Tuesday's contest. He looks like he is trending in the right direction and shouldn't miss more than one more game at the most. Eric Gordon, Ben McLemore and Austin Rivers would see more value if Westbrook is out with Gordon being the preferable option.

    Eric Gordon went 0-for-12 from three on Tuesday but salvaged some value with 16 points (6-of-22 FGs), two rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 31 minutes.

    Gordon has been back in the standard league conversation since his return from injury just before the new year. And while he's averaged 19.0 points and 3.4 threes per game over that time, there isn't much else that he provides. The 50-point game (while the Rockets were missing their big three) aside, Gordon hasn't necessarily been a must-roster player.

  • Ben McLemore
    SG, Houston Rockets

    Ben McLemore will start in place of Russell Westbrook (left thumb) for Tuesday's matchup against the Hornets.

    Ben McLemore is looking at a great opportunity in the starting lineup for this one, while Austin Rivers and Eric Gordon should see more minutes and usage off the bench.
