Rockets' Eric Gordon: Could play next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike D'Antoni said after Thursday's victory over the Lakers that he's hopeful Gordon (ankle) will return during the seeding games, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports.

Gordon is working his way back from a left ankle injury suffered during a late July scrimmage against the Celtics. He was initially handed a recovery timetable of 2-to-3 weeks, which would put his earliest possible return date towards the end of the seeding schedule. While Sunday's tilt against the Kings is still probably out of the question, it looks as though Gordon has an outside shot at returning for Tuesday's game against the Spurs or Wednesday's contest against the Pacers.

Rockets' Eric Gordon: Timetable updated to 2-3 weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon's (ankle) timetable for a return has been revised from one to two weeks, to two to three weeks, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports.

Gordon's ankle is reportedly swollen and tender, but that's to be expected. Initially, it seemed like Gordon might be able to make a return during the seeding games, but now that appears less likely. It's possible he suits up for the final contest if he lands on the early end of his timetable. In his stead, Danuel House will start, while Ben McLemore, Jeff Green and Austin Rivers are all candidates to see extra run.

Rockets' Eric Gordon: Could be out two weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rockets fear that Gordon will be sidelined for 1-to-2 weeks after he suffered a left ankle injury in Tuesday's 137-112 scrimmage victory over the Celtics, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Coach Mike D'Antoni's initial estimate of "a few days" was apparently way off base, as Gordon could be sidelined until mid-August. At the earliest, Gordon may able to take the court Aug. 4 against the Trail Blazers, but the Rockets don't have too much of a reason to rush him back unless they find themselves in danger of falling to the seventh seed in the Western Conference and potentially playing the Clippers in the first round of the playoffs. After Gordon exiting the scrimmage in the first half, Ben McLemore opened the second half with the starting five, so he could end up serving as the primary replacement for the former. Danuel House is another candidate to enter the starting five in Gordon's stead.

Rockets' Eric Gordon: Likely out 'a few days'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (ankle) had his X-ray return negative and coach Mike D'Antoni expects the guard to be out "a few days," Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

It appears Gordon has avoided anything too serious, and it's possible we see him take the court again early in the seeding games. More information could arrive in the coming days regarding a specific timeline. He hasn't yet been formally ruled out for Friday's opener against the Mavericks. If he ends up sidelined for that game and any future contests, Austin Rivers and Ben McLemore should see extra usage.

Rockets' Eric Gordon: Helped off court with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon was helped off the court after suffering an ankle injury during Tuesday's scrimmage against Boston, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Gordon landed on a Celtics' players foot during the second quarter and rolled his left ankle. The veteran had to be helped off the court by teammates, and the Rockets have confirmed that he won't return to the scrimmage. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN adds that Gordon will undergo an X-ray on the ankle. At this point, Gordon should be considered very much questionable, if not closer to doubtful, for Friday's opening seeding matchup against the Mavericks.

Rockets' Eric Gordon: Scores 11 points in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon provided 11 points (4-11 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT) across 25 minutes in Friday's 94-83 scrimmage loss to the Raptors in Orlando.

There's no question that Gordon has been a valuable contributor when Harden and/or Westbrook have sat for rest or injury, but the role he saw Friday at the wing is probably unsustainable. Danuel House and Ben McLemore provide much-needed height and more imposing inside presences, something Gordon can't offer. Furthermore, Robert Covington is one of the best defensive players in the game today, and to place Gordon ahead of this trio is unlikely moving forward.

Rockets' Eric Gordon: Back to full strength
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon said that he's back to full strength and full health after the suspended season allowed him to rest his knee, which he had surgically repaired during the season, Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

Gordon sat out 22 games from Nov. 13 through Dec. 28 as a result of the surgery. Since then, he's sat out seven of a possible 32 games and averaged 15.8 points on 13.1 shots with 1.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists. Gordon is a meaningful part of the Rockets' small-ball game plan.

Rockets' Eric Gordon: Goes for 16 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon notched 16 points (5-15 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds and one assist in 30 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 117-111 win over the Timberwolves.

Gordon struggled from the field, but he still produced a solid line off the bench. The fact that he's healthy should be the main positive thing moving forward, and Gordon will look to continue producing Thursday on the road against the Lakers even though he's hitting just 32.1 percent from the field in his last five appearances.

Rockets' Eric Gordon: Cleared to play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (knee) will play Tuesday against the Timberwolves, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.

Right knee soreness has kept Gordon out the past two games, but he's feeling healthy enough to make his return Tuesday. He's come off the bench across his past three appearances, averaging 7.7 points, 1.7 assists and 1.3 rebounds in 22.3 minutes.

Rockets' Eric Gordon: Questionable Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (knee) is considered questionable for Tuesday's game against Minnesota.

Gordon has missed the last two games with a sore right knee, and the Rockets will continue to evaluate him on a day-to-day basis. If the knee feels better by shootaround in the morning, Gordon could make his return -- likely in a bench capacity.

March 8, 2020 02:56 PM
Rockets' Eric Gordon: Officially out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rockets list Gordon (knee) as out for Sunday's game against the Magic.

As anticipated, Gordon will miss both ends of the Rockets' Saturday/Sunday back-to-back set after he experienced some right knee soreness following Thursday's 120-105 loss to the Clippers. While Gordon was out during Saturday's 108-99 loss to the Hornets, Austin Rivers (32 minutes) and Jeff Green (29 minutes) saw big boosts in playing time, but both players could settle into smaller roles with All-Star Russell Westbrook (rest) scheduled to return from a one-game absence.

Rockets' Eric Gordon: Out Saturday, doubtful Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (knee), who is out for Saturday's game against the Hornets, is doubtful for Sunday's contest against the Magic, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Knee soreness will likely keep Gordon out for a second straight game Sunday, but coach Mike D'Antoni noted that the guard would be day-to-day coming out of the weekend. In Gordon's absence, we could see more minutes out of Jeff Green, Austin Rivers and Ben McLemore.

Rockets' Eric Gordon: Out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game at Charlotte, Kelly Iko of The Athletic reports.

Gordon exited Thursday's loss to the Clippers with right knee soreness and will miss at least one game as a result. Russell Westbrook (rest) is also out Saturday, likely providing significant run for Austin Rivers and Ben McLemore.

Rockets' Eric Gordon: Won't return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon won't return to Thursday's contest against the Clippers due to right knee soreness, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The Rockets are likely playing it safe with their guard, as Gordon exited the contest in the fourth quarter after the game was out of hand. He'll likely be considered questionable for the Rockets' next matchup against Charlotte.

Rockets' Eric Gordon: Coming off bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (knee) will play and come off the bench for Saturday's game against the Celtics, Craig Ackerman of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

As expected, Gordon will make his return following a one-game absence due to a bruised knee. As a reserve this season, he's averaging 14.4 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 29.6 minutes.

Rockets' Eric Gordon: Expected to play vs. Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (knee) is expected to play Saturday against the Celtics, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.

Gordon has most recently been listed as questionable, but signs are pointing to him making his return following a one-game absence due to a bruised right knee. Since the New Year, he's averaging 17.1 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists across 29.6 minutes. However, it's possible he could end up on a minutes limit if he takes the court.

Rockets' Eric Gordon: Questionable Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (knee) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Celtics, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.

The veteran guard didn't suit up for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies after leaving Monday's matchup with the Knicks with knee soreness. There should be a better idea of Gordon's availability after Houston's Saturday morning shootaround.

February 26, 2020 01:40 PM
Rockets' Eric Gordon: Downgraded to out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (knee) will not play Wednesday against the Grizzlies.

Gordon was originally expected to play Wednesday, but his bruised right knee is giving him too much discomfort. In his absence, Ben McLemore, Danuel House and Austin Rivers could see extra action.

February 25, 2020 01:44 PM
Rockets' Eric Gordon: Expects to play vs. Grizz
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (knee) is considered questionable for Wednesday's game against Memphis, but he's expected to play, Rockets reporter Cayleigh Griffin reports.

Gordon started Monday's game against the Knicks and finished with 16 points on 4-of-13 shooting, but he left the contest in the second half with a sore knee. Gordon appeared to bump the knee at some point, so he's likely dealing with more of a bruise than a true "injury." Nonetheless, keep an eye on Gordon's status after shootaround Wednesday morning.

February 24, 2020 11:20 PM
Rockets' Eric Gordon: Won't return Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon won't return to Monday's game against the Knicks due to a sore knee, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Gordon struggled from the field in 28 minutes of action, knocking down just one of seven 3-point attempts, and the team announced in the second half that he's been shut down for the night. With Russell Westbrook (thumb) also out, look for Ben McLemore and Austin Rivers to see additional minutes.
