If the Rockets miss out on big stars this summer, they could approach Eric Gordon on extension talks, according to ESPN's Zach Lowe.
This is logical for the Rockets, but it seems obvious Clint Capela is a much bigger priority. Gordon has really turned his career around after a brutal, injury-plagued run with the Pelicans. One way or another, the Rockets will make some moves this summer. Jun 28 - 8:15 PM

Chris Paul (hamstring) is questionable to play in Game 7 on Monday.

"He looks questionable," said D'Antoni when asked about Paul's status for Game 7. "I'm sure the team doctors will check him out tomorrow. We might not know until afternoon. We'll play it by ear." It sounds like CP3 could be headed for a game-time call, but the odds of him being able to get out there aren't great. If Paul is forced to watch Game 7 from the sidelines, Eric Gordon will stick with the starters and there will be more minutes for Gerald Green.

Chris Paul will not play in Game 6 on Saturday against Golden State due to a right hamstring strain.

CP3 tweaked his right hamstring late in the fourth quarter of Game 5 on Thursday. He'll be re-evaluated again once the team returns to Houston, but this is not the news that the Rockets wanted to hear. Eric Gordon will have to step up on the offensive end in a major way, which he's shown he can do. This season when Paul and James Harden were sitting, Gordon averaged 34.6 points and 6.5 assists per 40 minutes. He played 36 minutes in Game 5, his most of this postseason. Expect somewhere around there again in Game 6.
May 25 - 12:25 PM

James Harden had 27 points, 10 rebounds and three assists in Houston’s 127-105 Game 2 win over Golden State on Wednesday.

Harden’s 27 points tied Eric Gordon for the team-high, and he got some much needed help from his teammates for Houston to pull off the victory and tie the series at 1-1. Five Rockets scored in double digits, including Chris Paul, P.J. Tucker and Trevor Ariza, and the team knocked down 16 triples after making 13 in Game 1. Harden also came up big on the glass, and his 10 boards were a postseason high.

Lou Williams, Eric Gordon and Fred VanVleet have been named the three finalists for the 2017-18 Sixth Man of the Year award.

Williams won the award in 2015 and he's the overwhelming favorite to take it home again this season, having averaged a career-high 22.6 points per game with 2.4 triples, 5.3 assists, 2.5 rebounds and 1.1 steals. His 6.2 free-throw makes per game were 11th-most in the league, far higher than any other reserve, which helped propel him to top-80 roto value.
May 16 - 8:38 PM

Trevor Ariza, Chris Paul, James Harden, Eric Gordon and Clint Capela will all be rested for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Kings.

It's a matchup against the Kings and the Rockets are locked in as the No. 1 seed, so there's zero incentive for any of the main guys to risk getting injured tonight. Joe Johnson and Gerald Green should be busy on offense tonight with all the main guys out.
Apr 11 - 9:05 PM

Chris Paul (rest, hip) and Nene (back) have been upgraded to probable for Tuesday's game against the Wizards.

CP3 was listed as "questionable" on Monday, but the plan for some time has been for him to get back to the floor for tonight's game, and we should have official confirmation soon enough. With Paul back in action, Eric Gordon will return to the second unit, and Nene's return could drop Tarik Black from the rotation entirely.
Apr 3 - 5:18 PM

Chris Paul (rest, hip) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Wizards.

Mike D'Antoni said on Sunday that he expected CP3 to get back out there for Tuesday's game, so the questionable tag feels more like a formality. We should get another update following shootaround, but if he is able to get back out there, Eric Gordon will return to the second unit and Gerald Green's minutes could head back to the teens. Stay tuned.
Apr 2 - 4:09 PM

Chris Paul (rest, hip) has been ruled out of Sunday's game vs. the Spurs.

Paul was initially ruled out of Friday's game due to a "sore left hip." However, the Rockets later said they were giving CP3 a rest day. We don't yet have an official reason for Paul being sidelined on Sunday, only that he won't play. Eric Gordon (knee) will return to game action on Sunday and should see plenty of playing time and scoring opportunities.
Mar 31 - 1:37 PM

Coach Mike D'Antoni said that Chris Paul (hamstring) is doubtful for Saturday's game vs. New Orleans and that he was "not certain" about Sunday's game vs. Atlanta.

Paul tweaked his hamstring in the closing seconds of Tuesday's win over the Blazers. CP3 has downplayed the injury since it happened. However, the Rockets are smartly erring on the side of caution with their star guard. Paul has dealt with nagging hamstring issues since the start of the season, and Houston has virtually locked up the No. 1 spot in the West. Thus, they have no need to rush him back until he is 100 percent healthy. Gerald Green and Eric Gordon will again see an uptick in minutes Saturday night.
Mar 23 - 12:58 PM

Chris Paul (left knee soreness) is questionable to play Thursday vs. the Clippers.

CP3 missed time with a left knee issue earlier in the year, so if there's any hint that he's not 100% after shootaround on Thursday, the Rockets may want to play it safe and keep him out despite him saying he's fine. James Harden would shift back to the one with Eric Gordon sliding back into the starting five if Paul sits, and Gerald Green could pick up some extra minutes. Stay tuned.
Mar 14 - 12:04 PM

James Harden (knee) will play Monday vs. the Spurs, as expected.

Harden was rested on Sunday with a matchup against the 21-46 Mavericks, but the plan was always to get him back to the court tonight. Eric Gordon will return to the second unit with Harden active, and his value will take a slight hit.
Mar 12 - 6:21 PM

James Harden (knee) will not play vs. the Mavericks on Sunday, but he will return vs. San Antonio on Monday.

It sounds as though Harden's absence is just a precaution against the cellar-dwelling Mavs, particularly in the first half of a back-to-back set. "Just a little rest ... make sure he's ready for the next game," coach Mike D'Antoni said. Eric Gordon will step into the starting role and Harden's usage will be absorbed by a committee that includes Gordon, Chris Paul and Trevor Ariza.
Mar 11 - 5:32 PM

Gerald Green was a healthy scratch for Houston on Sunday.

Mike D'Antoni spoke recently about the difficulty of playing 10-11 players every night, and Green was the odd-man out tonight with Joe Johnson (seven points, two assists) playing 29 minutes off the bench. His DNP came despite the absence of Eric Gordon (illness), which makes it even worse. He belongs on the wire in all formats.
Feb 26 - 12:06 AM

Gerald Green netted 17 points on 6-of-15 shooting Saturday, to go with four 3-pointers, three rebounds, one steal, three blocks and one turnover in 30 minutes off the bench.

Green amassed all three of his swats through the first quarter of action, and he made the most of his extended minutes with both Eric Gordon (back) and Trevor Ariza (hamstring) unavailable. However, Gordon is expected to get back to the court on Tuesday in Brooklyn, so Green will likely see his minutes reduced to the lower-20s. He's someone to consider streaming when the Rockets are less than 100%, but he's not worth owning in most leagues when their backcourt is fully intact.
Feb 3 - 11:25 PM

Chris Paul (sore right groin) is questionable to play Thursday vs. the Spurs.

Paul was able to get some shots up at Wednesday's practice, but with his long-term health being the primary focus in Houston, he could certainly sit again on Thursday if there's any doubt about his groin. We'll have a better idea on his status following Thursday morning's shootaround, but with Eric Gordon (back) also questionable and Trevor Ariza (hamstring) unlikely, James Harden could again see his usage in the 40s.
Jan 31 - 1:13 PM

Chris Paul (sore right groin) will not suit up for Tuesday's game against the Magic.

It's not all that surprising to see the Rockets' play it safe with a matchup against the 14-34 Magic, as holding CP3 out today will give him a full three days off ahead of Friday's game in San Antonio. Eric Gordon will slide back into the starting five with James Harden shifting over to the point, and with both Paul and Trevor Ariza (hamstring) unavailable, Harden's usage rate could go into the ridiculous range.
Jan 30 - 6:20 PM

James Harden (hamstring) is expected to return to the court for Thursday's game against the Timberwolves.

Assuming all goes well during Wednesday's practice, Harden should be able to get back to the court for Thursday night's game, which will queue Eric Gordon's return to the second unit. Gerald Green will also see a reduction in minutes with Harden back in action, so those that picked up Green during the hot streak should start perusing the waiver wire for other options.

Jan 17 - 1:44 PM

James Harden (hamstring) has been upgraded to questionable for Thursday's game against the Timberwolves.

Mike D'Antoni said on Sunday that there was a chance Harden could make it back to the court for Thursday's game, although Monday's reported incident between the Clippers and the Rockets could complicate things. We're sure to get a few more updates on Harden leading up to Thursday's tip, but if he is able to get back out there, Eric Gordon would return to the bench and Gerald Green's value would take a hit. Stay tuned.
Jan 16 - 6:33 PM

Mike D'Antoni said that James Harden (hamstring) could return to the court for Thursday's game against the Timberwolves or Saturday's game vs. the Warriors.

It sounds like Harden will sit out Monday's game against the Clippers, but there's a good chance he'll be getting back out there next week, which could queue the end of Gerald Green's run as a fantasy relevant asset. Eric Gordon will return to the bench once Harden is able to get back out there, and Chris Paul's usage and assist rate will take a slight hit.
Jan 14 - 3:03 PM

James Harden (hamstring) was able to get up some shots at shootaround on Wednesday.

Head coach Mike D'Antoni said that Harden has looked "really good" as he continues his rehab from the Grade 2 hamstring strain, and members of Harden's camp have indicated that he could be back "soon, anytime next week," so maybe he'll return at the end of his initial two-week timetable. In the meantime, Chris Paul, Eric Gordon and Gerald Green will continue to pick up the slack in his absence.
