Gordon left the game late in the fourth quarter of Wednesday's matchup with the Nets and will not return, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports. Gordon had scored 20 points and drilled four treys by the time he left Wednesday's game. He'd missed the previous eight games with a knee bruise, so the late departure with the game headed to overtime was likely precautionary. Look for an update on Gordon's status to come before the Rocket's next game, Saturday against the Lakers.
Gordon will start Wednesday's game against the Nets, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports. Gordon will return Wednesday after missing the past eight games with a bruised right knee. According to coach Mike D'Antoni, he'll play "24-ish minutes" in his return. It's unclear how long the minute limit will persist, but owners can expect Gordon to return to his usual 33.2 minute workload fairly soon assuming he doesn't experience a setback.
The Rockets continue to list Gordon (knee) as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Nets, but the team is hopeful he'll be cleared to suit up, league sources tell Shams Charania of The Athletic. Even if his role is restricted on the heels of an eight-game absence, Gordon's availability in any capacity would be a major boon for the banged-up Rockets. In addition to losing starting center Clint Capela (thumb) to a long-term absence earlier this week, the Rockets were unable to work out a contract with starting small forward Danuel House, who continues to play on a two-way deal and was returned to the G League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers since he was approaching his 45-day limit at the NBA level. Clarity on Gordon's status should come one way or the other as the 8 p.m. EST tipoff approaches. If active, Gordon could claim House's vacant spot in the starting five or bump Austin Rivers to the bench.
Gordon (knee) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Nets, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. This is the first time since suffering the injury that Gordon has been listed as questionable, so it looks like there is a legitimate chance the shooting guard returns to the lineup Wednesday. Gordon has been sidelined for the last seven games with a right knee bruise, and there should be more information on Gordon's status following Houston's shootaround Wednesday morning.
Gordon (knee) will miss Monday's contest against Memphis, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports. It will be the seventh straight game in which Gordon, who has been inactive since suffering a right knee bruise back on Dec. 29, will be sidelined. Coach Mike D'Anoni remains optimistic though that Gordon could reportedly return sometime this week and it could quite possible be Wednesday against Brooklyn.
