Gordon (groin) is expected to miss four to six weeks due to a moderate groin strain, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Gordon suffered the groin injury during the second half of Thursday's loss to Sacramento, and the issue's severity was confirmed via an MRI on Friday. Thursday's game was the 14th consecutive loss for Houston, and Gordon's injury will now further detract from a roster devastated by injury. He joins John Wall (knee), Victor Oladipo (rest), Danuel House (knee) and Christian Wood (ankle) on the sideline Friday, while Houston is also dealing with injuries to some depth pieces. Long-term, Kevin Porter Jr. and Ben McLemore could be the primary beneficiaries in Gordon's absence.
Gordon (groin) won't play Friday at Utah and will undergo an MRI, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The veteran guard exited Thursday's contest with a right groin injury and will be sidelined for the second half of the back-to-back set Friday. Gordon had 17 points (6-17 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-4 FT), two rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes Thursday before suffering the injury.
Gordon won't return to Thursday's game against Sacramento with a right groin injury, Adam Wexler of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.
Gordon apparently suffered the injury during the second half of Thursday's matchup while trying to defend a drive to the rim. The veteran should be considered day-to-day moving forward, as the Rockets' next game is Friday against Utah.
Gordon (knee) will play Thursday against the Kings, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Gordon missed the last two games prior to the All-Star break, but he is good to go after an extra week off. The 32-year-old shooting guard could take on a larger scoring workload Thursday since John Wall (knee) will be on the sidelines.
Gordon (knee) is questionable for Thursday's game at Sacramento
The 32-year-old missed the last two games before the break due to left knee soreness, but he'll have a chance to retake the court Thursday. Sterling Brown and Ben McLemore will likely have increased roles if Gordon remains sidelined.
Gordon (knee) is out Wednesday against the Nets.
Gordon will miss his second consecutive game with left knee soreness, and we won't see him again until after the All-Star break. In his absence, Sterling Brown, Jae'Sean Tate and Ben McLemore remain candidates to see extra usage.
Gordon (knee) is questionable for Wednesday's matchup against the Nets.
Gordon missed Monday's loss to the Cavaliers due to left knee soreness, and it's possible he misses Wednesday's action as well, which is the Rockets' final game before the All-Star break. If he sits again, Sterling Brown could continue seeing an expanded role.
Gordon (knee) won't play Monday against the Cavaliers, Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
Gordon was listed as questionable leading up to Monday's tip due to knee soreness, and the team has ultimately ruled him out. Sterling Brown and David Nwaba figure to be in line for additional minutes off the bench in Gordon's absence.
Gordon is listed as questionable for Monday's game against Cleveland due to a sore left knee.
Gordon is coming off of a horrific shooting night (five points, 1-10 FG) in Sunday's 49-point loss to Memphis, and he's now listed on the team's initial injury report with soreness in his troublesome left knee. The hope is that he'll be able to play through it, but it wouldn't be a shock if the Rockets ultimately hold him out -- especially with Victor Oladipo set to return after resting Sunday.
Gordon tallied just five points (1-10 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two rebounds and two assists in 23 minutes during Sunday's 134-85 loss to Memphis.
Gordon replaced Victor Oladipo (rest) in the starting lineup, although you wouldn't have known it to look at the boxscore. Outside of points and triples, Gordon basically offers nothing to fantasy GMs and so on nights like this, he is pretty much a waste of time.
Gordon will be in the starting five for Sunday's game against Memphis, Cayleigh Griffin of ATT SportsNet reports.
With Victor Oladipo resting again, Gordon will move back into the starting lineup at one guard spot alongside John Wall. Gordon has already averaged 33 minutes per game off the bench in his last two appearances, so the change in role likely won't have a major impact on his overall workload.
Gordon (ankle) played 32 minutes off the bench and contributed 17 points (5-12 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 4-5 FT), two rebounds, two assists and two blocks in Friday's loss to the Raptors.
Despite coming off the bench, Gordon outscored three of the five starters and his two blocks led the team. Though Gordon doesn't see the starting lineup on a regular basis, he does play starter minutes and he's been one of the more consistent scorers for the Rockets this season.
Gordon (ankle) is available and will come off the bench Wednesday at Cleveland, Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
The 32-year-old was a game-time decision but showed well in warmups and will play Wednesday. Gordon started in his past three appearances, but he'll come off the bench with Victor Oladipo (foot) and John Wall starting in the backcourt.
Gordon (ankle) is a game-time call for Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers, Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
Gordon, who is listed as questionable, will test things out in pregame warmups before a final determination on his status is made. If he's cleared to play, he'll likely start.
Gordon (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Gordon sustained the ankle injury in Monday's loss to Chicago, which could partly explain his poor shooting effort, as he went 5-of-18 from the field. With Victor Oladipo (foot) also considered questionable, David Nwaba could be in line for a heavier than normal workload.
Gordon scored 13 points (5-18 FG, 1-10 3Pt, 2-3 FT) to go along with three rebounds and four assists across 28 minutes in Monday's loss to the Bulls.
Gordon had a horrific shooting night, but was able to get to the rim several times to score in double-digits. He doesn't contribute much in other areas of the box score -- though he had six assists in consecutive games entering Monday's contest -- so when his shot isn't falling, Gordon will have hard a time producing significant fantasy value.
Gordon had 17 points (6-14 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and six assists across 34 minutes in Wednesday's loss at Philadelphia.
Gordon moved to the starting lineup due to Victor Oladipo (foot) being ruled out, and he responded with a strong scoring output. That has been the trend for Gordon of late, however, as he has scored 17 or more points in eight straight games.
Gordon (groin) will play in Wednesday's game against the 76ers, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
After going through warmups, Gordon is apparently feeling good enough to go Wednesday and could see a fair amount of playing time with Victor Oladipo out with a foot injury. He's averaging 18.8 points, 2.6 assists and 2.3 rebounds in just over 29 minutes per game this season and is likely to return to the starting lineup with Oladipo out.
Gordon (groin) will be a game-time call Wednesday night against Philadelphia, Ben DuBose of USA Today reports.
Gordon was listed as doubtful as of Tuesday night, but coach Stephen Silas said Wednesday morning that he believes the veteran guard will have a good chance to play. The Rockets will wait until after Gordon can warm up before the game to make a final call. Silas also intimated that Victor Oladipo (foot) will likely remain out, so if Gordon does play, he could be set for a slightly increased role.
Gordon (groin) is considered doubtful for Wednesday's game against the 76ers, Mark Berman of Fox 26 in Houston reports.
A groin issue kept Gordon out of Monday's loss to Washington, and it looks like he's on course for another absence Wednesday. Victor Oladipo (foot) is also listed as doubtful, so David Nwaba could be in line for another start next to John Wall.
