Player Outlook

At this point, you simply cannot expect Eric Gordon to stay healthy for a full season. Once one of the most promising young guards in the league, the 27-year-old has not played 65 games in a season since he was a rookie back in 2008-09, and is coming off a season with 37 missed games. He was productive when he took the floor, of course, averaging 15.2 points, 2.7 assists and 2.5 3-pointers per game, as he continued to cement his place as one of the better 3-point shooters in the league. He should fit in well in Mike D'Antoni's offense, both as a second unit ball-handler and spot-up shooter next to James Harden, and he should put up similar numbers as last season. However, because of the injuries, Gordon has to be viewed as just a late-round Fantasy option on Draft Day.

Player News
  • Gordon agreed to a four-year, $53 million contract with the Rockets on Saturday, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports. Gordon, when healthy, has been a solid player throughout his NBA career, but he hasn't played more than 64 games in a season since his rookie year, and played just 45 games last season. In those 45 games, he averaged 15.2 points, 2.2 rebounds, and 2.7 assists in 32.9 minutes per game. In Houston, Gordon will play behind James Harden and provide the team with a quality scoring guard off of the bench.

  • Pelicans' Eric Gordon: Undergoes successful surgery
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gordon underwent successful surgery on his fractured right ring finger. Despite the successful surgery, Gordon will still miss the remainder of the season as his injury-riddled career takes another hit. Despite playing 78 games in his rookie year back in the 2008-09 season, the 27-year-old has been unable to last more than 64 games in each of his following seven seasons in the NBA. Nevertheless, his current recovery timeline should allow him to be ready at the onset of the 2016-17 campaign.

  • Pelicans' Eric Gordon: Set for surgery Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gordon (finger) was scheduled to undergo surgery Tuesday and is expected to miss the rest of the season, John Reid of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. The Pelicans have yet to formally confirm that Gordon indeed underwent the procedure, but that information figures to surface within the next few days. Barring an unexpected swift recovery from a procedure that normally requires at least a month-long rehab, Gordon will close the book on another injury-plagued campaign in which he averaged 15.2 points, 2.7 assists, and 2.2 rebounds over 45 appearances. Gordon will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, but it's unclear if the Pelicans are interested in retaining him.

  • Pelicans' Eric Gordon: Could be done for season
    By RotoWire Staff

    Coach Alvin Gentry suggested that Gordon, who fractured his right ring finger in Saturday's loss to the Jazz, could be at risk of missing the remainder of the season. "If it's gonna be six-to-eight weeks -- and I'm just speculating right now, I don't know that for sure -- but if that's gonna be the case, it pretty much takes him until the end of the season," Gentry said. Gordon previously fractured the same finger in late January and required surgery, which forced him out of 16 games. The Pelicans initially ruled Gordon out for four-to-six weeks the first time around, so it's possible that the team could exercise even more caution this time around. With just over a month left in the season and the Pelicans facing long odds to make the playoffs, it seems quite plausible that the team will shut Gordon down, but official word on that front should come in the next few days. Jrue Holiday started at shooting guard in the second half of Saturday's game in Gordon's place, and could take over the starting role for the duration of Gordon's absence.

  • Gordon fractured his right ring finger in Saturday's game against the Jazz and will not return This is tough news for Gordon as he broke his right ring finger for the second time this season Saturday. His first broken ring finger required surgery and sidelined him for 16 games, so he'll likely be sidelined for the foreseeable future after re-injuring it Saturday. Jrue Holiday could slide over to shooting guard in Gordon's absence and Alonzo Gee is a candidate to take Gordon's spot as well. The team figures to provide a timetable for Gordon by the end of the weekend.
