Eric Gordon

  • Eric Gordon - G - Houston Rockets

    Eric Gordon (knee soreness) started and scored 30 points on 7-of-16 shooting (5-of-10 3PTs, 11-of-12 FTs) with five rebounds and four assists over 32 minutes in Saturday's overtime win against the Lakers.

    Gordon probably geared up for national TV and he's an easy late-round guy if he's hitting his shots, but that hasn't been the case this year. A bounce-back could have a top-100 impact but knee issues don't make us want to bet our house on it or anything.

    Eric Gordon (knee soreness) will play in Saturday's game against he Lakers but may be limited.

    Gordon has had a history with this knee both this season and during his career, so it's a little surprising that he's going to try and play through it for this one. If he does not feel good during the game, he likely won't finish it, making him a risky daily play.

    Eric Gordon (knee soreness) and James Ennis (calf laceration) will play on Saturday against the Lakers.

    Gordon has been dealing with some knee soreness for some time and has had issues with the knee before. He'll be available for this one and should be a good source of 3-pointers, if nothing else. Ennis has a shot for deep-league value just from minute volume. For that, he has to spend actual time on court over Danuel House Jr. and James Nunnally. Seems like it should be easy considering House is in the G-League and Nunnally just got there, but… who knows.

  • Eric Gordon - G - Houston Rockets

    Eric Gordon is experiencing soreness in his knee and will not return for the overtime period on Wednesday.

    Gordon leaves the game after having scored 20 points on 6-of-11 shooting with four triples, three rebounds, two assists and a steal. He's had a history of knee problems, so his inability to stay in the game is a concern.

    Eric Gordon (right knee contusion) will start on Wednesday night but is limited to around 24 minutes.

    Gordon has missed the last eight games with a knee problem that originally had him listed as day-to-day. His return couldn't come at a better time for a Rockets team that's incredibly thin on the wings, and while they're still dealing with injuries Gordon is looking at plenty of shots headed his way. If you need threes and scoring he's worth a very close look.

    Eric Gordon (right knee contusion) is likely to play on Wednesday against the Nets.

    The Rockets definitely need him back but they could still ease him in and watch James Harden try to set records. Use him with caution.

    Eric Gordon (right knee contusion) is questionable to play on Wednesday.

    Gordon looks to be nearing a return after eight games on the shelf, but nothing is set in stone here. He had been playing well prior to going down, starting for Chris Paul and logging heavy minutes while getting lots of shots up. It's likely that Gordon returns to the starting lineup once he gets healthy, and he'll be on the radar in all formats for his contributions in points and threes. Austin Rivers likely heads to the bench but he'll still play a ton until Paul gets back.

    Eric Gordon (right knee contusion) will remain out for Monday's matchup vs. the Grizzlies.

    Gordon has missed the last seven games and this will be the eighth. Before he went down he had scored at least 17 points in each of his last five games and was really hitting a rhythm. However, it looks like owners will have to keep waiting on him. In his absence expect Gerald Green and Austin Rivers to get the majority of the minutes.

    Eric Gordon (right knee contusion) could return sometime next week according to coach Mike D'Antoni.

    This remains on course with D'Antoni's update four days ago. We'd go with Gordon being doubtful for Monday's game and potentially returning for Wednesday's game against the Nets or Saturday's game against the Lakers. Gerald Green, Austin Rivers and Danuel House will continue soaking up all of Gordon's minutes until he returns.

    Giving a rough estimate on potential return dates, Mike D'Antoni estimated that Eric Gordon (right knee contusion) could return in a week.

    Of course, that also means that Gordon will be out for another week. He's not someone that needs to be held in 12-team leagues and we'll know more after he's reevaluated later this week. Austin Rivers, Gerald Green and Danuel House will all soak up extra minutes in Houston but are only deep-league options.

    Eric Gordon's recovery from his knee contusion has been "slower than he expected," due to the swelling in his knee not subsiding as quickly as he had hoped.

    Gordon is not yet running, due to the swelling in his knee. This means that his timetable is still measured in weeks, as of now. While he will be re-evaluated at the end of the week, the rate at which the swelling has gone down should be a concern for owners awaiting his return. Gordon has had a long history of knee problems and has been a notoriously slow healer, so patience is part and parcel of owning this prolific shooter.

    Eric Gordon (right knee contusion) will be reevaluated at the end of the week.

    Gordon's going to end up missing at least two weeks with his knee injury. Those of you using Austin Rivers can do so comfortably for the next few games, while deep-leaguers can continue to deploy Danuel House and Gerald Green. Gordon's missing a great opportunity to put up numbers with Chris Paul out and is not a must-hold in 12-team leagues.

    Eric Gordon (bruised right knee) has been ruled out for Monday's game.

    Gordon was doubtful in this one, so no surprises here. Austin Rivers will continue to start while Gerald Green and James Ennis will handle minutes off the bench. Gordon is not too far off from a return, but the Rockets will be extra cautious with him.

    Eric Gordon (bruised right knee) will miss his third straight game on Saturday and is doubtful to play on Monday.

    Gordon should be day-to-day after tomorrow, at least according to Mike D'Antoni, but the Rockets will clearly take it easy on him. James Harden has carried the Rockets up the standings with his sheer brilliance, and that's helped Houston survive without Chris Paul and Gordon. Austin Rivers will continue to start in the interim with Gerald Green and Danuel House both playing well in complementary roles.

    Eric Gordon (bruised right knee) will be listed as out for Thursday's game against the Warriors.

    We already knew that he was unlikely to play, but now we know he will be listed as out. Austin Rivers figures to start again and remains a fine option until Chris Paul (hamstring) or Gordon return. James Harden should have no problem continuing to do what he's doing.
