    Eric Gordon (sore right knee) logged 30 minutes off the bench in his return on Tuesday and managed to put up 16 points on 5-of-15 shooting with two 3s, two rebounds and one assist.

    Gordon's 30-minute workload is an encouraging sign that his knees are up to the challenge. At least for now. On that note, he's still just a 3-point streamer in standard leagues and a hold/pickup in 16-teamers or deeper.

    Eric Gordon (sore right knee) and Ben McLemore (gastroenteritis) are both available to play against the Wolves on Tuesday.

    Gordon and McLemore should return to their usual roles in what should be a high scoring affair of two teams that love to spread the floor and shoot triples. Get Gordon back in your lineup for this one, while McLemore is a deep-league streaming consideration for owners who want some extra triples.

    Eric Gordon (knee) and Ben McLemore (gastroenteritis) are both being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Wolves.

    Chris Clemons was assigned to the G League earlier on Tuesday, so it is very likely that one or both of these wings are available for this one. This looks to have shootout written all over it, so be sure to check back in before game time for an official call on their playing status.

    The Rockets have assigned Chris Clemons to the Vipers G League on Tuesday.

    This could be an indication that Ben McLemore and/or Eric Gordon are available for Tuesday's game against the Wolves.

    Eric Gordon (right knee soreness) and Ben McLemore (gastroenteritis) are both listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Wolves.

    Gordon and McLemore are three-point specialists as most players are within the Rockets' rotation. Neither player does enough outside of scoring to be worth rostering in standard leagues. They can be worth a look as a specialist in 16-team leagues and deeper.

    Eric Gordon (right knee soreness) will not play in Sunday's game vs. the Magic.

    Gordon was ruled out of Saturday's game and wasn't likely to play in Sunday's either. The Rockets will likely take their time with him because he's a crucial part to their team's success serving as their best scorer outside of James Harden and Russell Westbrook. With him sidelined, Austin Rivers and Ben McLemore will get more opportunity.

    Eric Gordon (right knee soreness), already ruled out of Saturday's game, is doubtful to play on Sunday as well.

    Gordon will be considered day-to-day thereafter but you can never really count on him suiting up until it's official. Given his lengthy injury history, the Rockets will surely take their time with Gordon to ensure that he's ready for what they're hoping is a deep playoff run. Austin Rivers and Ben McLemore will get extra work, with McLemore the better option for points and threes.

    Eric Gordon (right knee) will not play on Saturday.

    Gordon has played in three games since returning from a right knee contusion, but is now dealing with some soreness. He's been dealing with plenty of injuries this season and the Rockets might just be trying to get him right for the playoffs. He's a weak fantasy option since all he does is hit threes, which are more bountiful than ever on the open market. Ben McLemore and Austin Rivers should absorb his minutes.

    Eric Gordon (right knee contusion) will return to the lineup on Saturday, coming off the bench against the Celtics.

    Gordon is good to go if you need threes, while Ben McLemore and Austin Rivers will lose some opportunity as a result of this news.

    Eric Gordon (right knee contusion) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game.

    Gordon sat out on Wednesday after initially expecting to play, so we're tentatively hopeful that he'll suit up tomorrow against Boston. Ben McLemore would get a boost if you're streaming for threes and Gordon sits.

    Eric Gordon (bruised right knee) will not play during Wednesday's game.

    Gordon was forced to leave Monday's game early. Ben McLemore should be the primary beneficiary of his absence.

    Eric Gordon (sore knee) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies but expects to suit up.

    Gordon got the start on Monday with Russell Westbrook sitting, but left early and did not return. It looks like he shouldn't miss any time as a result, and will look to slot back in as a scorer off the bench. Gordon is averaging 14 points, 1.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.5 threes in two games since the All-Star break.

    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.
