Gordon (rest) is unavailable Friday at Detroit, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports. The 25-year-old played 29 and 30 minutes in the past two games and will take a seat Friday to manage a calf injury. JaMychal Green and Shaquille Harrison should see increased run with Gordon and Paul Millsap (rest) sidelined.
Gordon totaled 15 points (6-10 FG, 2-2 FT, 1-2 3Pt), four assists, three rebounds and one steal in 30 minutes during Thursday's 114-103 win over the Timberwolves. Gordon's efficient, well-rounded game was just what the Nuggets needed Thursday. Without Michael Porter (rest) and Jamal Murray (knee), the Nuggets relied on a heavy dose of efficient scoring from their big lineup of Gordon, Nikola Jokic and JaVale McGee. With Thursday's outing, Gordon has now scored in the double digits over his last three games and is shooting 57.6 percent from the field during that stretch.
Gordon accumulated 17 points (8-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists and two steals in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 117-112 win over the Hornets. The 25-year-old returned to action after missing Saturday's game due to a bruised calf to post his 11th double-digit scoring output since joining the Nuggets back on March 28. Before Tuesday's game, Gordon was averaging just 6.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.7 assists with little else in 26.3 minutes over his last six games. The seventh-year forward will look to build on Tuesday's impressive performance Thursday on the road against the Timberwolves.
Gordon (calf) has been cleared to play Tuesday against the Hornets. Gordon was held out of Saturday's loss to Brooklyn with a bruised calf, but he was never expected to miss more than a game or two. After entering Tuesday with a "probable" tag, the wing will be back in the lineup as Denver looks to snap a two-game skid.
Gordon (calf) is probable for Tuesday's game at Charlotte, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports. The 25-year-old was a late scratch for Saturday's contest versus Brooklyn with tightness in his right calf, but his absence is expected to be limited to the one game. Prior to sitting out Saturday, Gordon averaged 6.2 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 25.8 minutes over the previous five games.
