Top Garrison Mathews News

  • Rockets' Garrison Mathews: Explodes for 22 points Friday

    Mathews finished with 22 points (7-11 FG, 6-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists, one block and two steals in 33 minutes during Friday's 122-117 loss to the Kings.

    Mathews has had quite a few 20-point performances this season, but this one was eye-popping since he hadn't scored more than 10 points in each of his last 15 contests. As if that was not enough, the fact that his role often changes between a starter and a bench piece reduces his upside even further.

  • Rockets' Garrison Mathews: Moves back to bench

    Mathews will come off the bench Monday against the Wizards, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Mathews started the past four games but averaged only 5.3 points and 1.0 rebounds in 21.0 minutes during that stretch. Eric Gordon (illness) will rejoin the lineup Monday after sitting out the past four contests.

  • Rockets' Garrison Mathews: Uninvolved in loss

    Mathews supplied two points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-4 FT) and two assists across 18 minutes during Sunday's 122-98 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Even for playing just 18 minutes, Mathews was extraordinarily quiet. He has now failed to hit double-digit scoring in seven consecutive contests. Mathews impact is simply low at the moment, even for those looking to capitalize on his three-point prowess.

  • Rockets' Garrison Mathews: Late addition to starting lineup

    Mathews will start Sunday's game against the Pelicans, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 in Houston reports.

    The Rockets initially announced Eric Gordon as the starter at small forward, but Gordon has since been scratched due to discomfort in his knee. Mathews will replace him on the wing for his third start in the last seven games.

  • Rockets' Garrison Mathews: Contract for 2022-23 guaranteed

    Mathews had his contract for 2022-23 guaranteed Friday, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports.

    Mathews signed a four-year, $8.2 million deal with the Rockets in December, but the three years following 2021-22 are non-guaranteed. Houston has seen enough to want Mathews on the team next season. In his 49 appearances, he's averaged 11.0 points on 36.7 percent shooting from deep, 3.2 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 27.2 minutes.

  • Rockets' Garrison Mathews: Moves back to bench

    Mathews will come off the bench for Wednesday's matchup with the Lakers, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

  • Rockets' Garrison Mathews: Not listed on injury report

    Mathews (ankle) has been removed from the injury report ahead of Wednesday's game against the Lakers.

    As expected, Mathews will continue to play through a sprained ankle that has plagued him for the past couple of weeks. However, after starting Houston's last contest, he's expected to return to his usual reserve role with Eric Gordon (hamstring) clear of the injury report.

  • Rockets' Garrison Mathews: Says he's good to go Wednesday

    Mathews (ankle) participated in the Hawks' morning shootaround and said he was good to go for Wednesday's matchup with the Bucks, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Mathews, who is listed as questionable, has played through the ankle sprain over the past couple of weeks, but he apparently tweaked the injury during Monday's loss to Miami. If he is available, he'll likely return to his usual bench role with Eric Gordon (hamstring) clear of the injury report.

  • Rockets' Garrison Mathews: Dealing with sprained ankle

    Mathews has a sprained left ankle and is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Lakers, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.

    Mathews has played through the ankle sprain over the past couple weeks and apparently tweaked the injury during Monday's loss to Miami, when he started and put up zero points (0-5 FG, 0-5 3Pt), one assist and two steals in 20 minutes. Even if available Wednesday he may come off the bench with Eric Gordon (hamstring) clear of the injury report.

  • Rockets' Garrison Mathews: Scoreless in start

    Mathews produced zero points (0-5 FG, 0-5 3Pt), one assist and two steals in 20 minutes during Monday's 123-106 loss to Miami.

    Mathews drew the start with Eric Gordon resting, but he struggled from deep and played fewer minutes than reserves Josh Christopher (28 minutes) and Daishen Nix (23). The third-year pro came into the contest averaging 13.8 points and 4.1 rebounds across 19 games as a starter, so the scoreless performance was certainly disappointing. He'll look to bounce back Wednesday against the Lakers, though he'll likely be back to a reserve role with Gordon expected to be available.

  • Rockets' Garrison Mathews: Starting versus Utah

    Mathews will start Wednesday's game against the Jazz, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.

    The 25-year-old is unsurprisely available after being considered probable with a sprained left ankle, and he'll start with Eric Gordon (groin) sitting out Wednesday. Mathews has averaged 13.8 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 31.8 minutes across 18 starts this season.

  • Rockets' Garrison Mathews: Expected to play Wednesday

    Mathews (ankle) is probable for Wednesday's matchup against the Jazz, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.

    Mathews played through the sprained left ankle Tuesday and totaled eight points (3-10 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 0-1 FT), two rebounds and one steal in 26 minutes. Barring a setback, he'll likely be available for the second half of the Rockets' back-to-back.

  • Rockets' Garrison Mathews: Questionable against Clippers

    Mathews is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Clippers due to a left ankle sprain, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.

    Mathews has come off the bench in each of the last two games, but he's scored in double figures in each of those appearances. If he's unable to suit up against the Clippers, David Nwaba and Josh Christopher should see an uptick in playing time.

  • Rockets' Garrison Mathews: Keeps production up off bench

    Mathews totaled 17 points (5-10 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), one rebound, one assist and two steals in 26 minutes during Sunday's 99-98 loss to the Clippers.

    Mathews was a very effective shooter in the loss and has put together his best two-game in recent memory. Mathews was vital amid the slew of absences on the roster earlier in the season, but his output has taken an incredible hit since. Kevin Porter's (ankle) absence was the likely cause of this brief improvement.

  • Rockets' Garrison Mathews: Effective off bench

    Mathews finished with 13 points (5-9 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two rebounds and two steals in 23 minutes during Friday's 119-111 loss to the Magic.

    Mathews started two of the four games leading up to the All-Star break, but he returned to a bench role for Friday's matchup. He maintained consistent playing time and scored in double figures for the first time since Feb. 10. While Mathews has had inconsistent fantasy production recently, he should have ample playing time regardless of his starting status.
