Rockets' Eric Gordon: Scores 27 points in Monday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon registered 27 points (9-12 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds, and one assist in 36 minutes during Monday's 130-123 win over the Pelicans.

Gordon was on fire, scorching his former team with more than twice as many points as shot attempts. He has quietly scored in double figures during five straight games, this following his lone single-digit effort of the season (eight points on three-of-12 from the field against the Knicks on Nov. 25). Gordon has also seen 30-plus minutes in four consecutive contests, and this was the 13th time he has scored 20 points or more in 2017-18. Given that he had 19 such showings across 75 appearances during 2016-17, it's safe to say that Gordon is exceeding expectations.

Rockets' Clint Capela: Enjoys career night in Monday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capela contributed 28 points (13-14 FG, 2-4 FT), eight rebounds, and five blocks in 24 minutes during Monday's 130-123 win over the Pelicans.

Capela finished with a career high in scoring and matched his career best in blocks while playing only half the game. Moreover, he locked DeMarcus Cousins down in the pivotal fourth quarter, holding him to just one point in the final eight minutes of action.

Rockets' James Harden: Fills up box score in Monday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harden had 26 points (8-16 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 6-9 FT), 17 assists, six steals, and one rebound in 35 minutes during Monday's 130-123 win over the Pelicans.

Harden matched his career high in assists and swiped a season high in steals. Furthermore, he took over as a scorer down the stretch, canning trey after trey to help put the Pelicans away. It's probably safe to assume that the calf discomfort Harden was recently experiencing is no longer bothering him.

Rockets' Troy Williams: No longer listed on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) is no longer listed on the injury report for Monday's game against the Pelicans, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.

Williams didn't travel with the Rockets for their recent three-game road trip due to a nee injury, but should be back to full strength now after the extended time off. That being said, Williams has seen action in just four games this season and is not a part of the regular rotation, so he can be avoided in fantasy leagues. Look for Williams to head back to the G-League.

Rockets' James Harden: Good to go Monday vs. Pelicans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harden (calf) has been cleared to play in Monday's game against the Pelicans, Rockets radio play-by-play announcer Craig Ackerman reports.

Harden was listed on Monday's injury report as a precautionary measure while dealing with some discomfort in his left calf, but was never expected to miss any time. He'll be in the starting lineup as usual and doesn't appear to be on any restrictions, though coach Mike D'Antoni could certainly keep a close eye on his minutes. Either way, fantasy owners should go ahead and activate him against the Pelicans.
