Eric Gordon hit a clutch 3-pointer with 2.0 seconds left to send the game to overtime against the Lakers on Saturday, finishing with 30 points, five rebounds, four assists and five 3-pointers in 32 minutes.
The Rockets downplayed his knee injury from Wednesday, and it turns out they weren't kidding with the guard excelling late. Gordon hit a clutch three before the big 3-pointer to send the game to OT and hit the first trey in overtime, as well. The Rockets will need him to log major minutes in a higher-usage role to help James Harden, and he should be staggered with some ball-handling chances in the second unit, as well. He should be owned in standard leagues until Chris Paul (hamstring) comes back. Jan 20 - 12:08 AM

Eric Gordon (right knee) is probable for Saturday's game vs. the Lakers.

Gordon returned from an eight-game absence against on Wednesday and tallied 20 points, three rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 21 minutes. On Thursday, he told reporters that he felt okay afterward. He will likely see his playing time rise on Saturday night.
Jan 18 - 12:48 PM

Eric Gordon (right knee) said his knee was "feeling okay" after logging 21 minutes in his return to the lineup on Wednesday.

"Yeah, I felt good along the game," said Gordon. "Of course, I’m going to feel something here and there, but you’re going to feel some soreness, that’s what I expected. But I think I’m headed in the right direction, and we will see how things come along." He also said that the limited minutes were part of the gameplan and that he didn't experience a setback, so he should be fine for Saturday's game against the Lakers.

Eric Gordon returned from an eight-game absence against the Nets on Wednesday, scoring 20 points with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 21 minutes as a starter.

His right knee injury history was a factor to limit his playing time, and he wasn't able to finish this game. He did look good at times with a dunk and started strong, so hopefully he won't need to miss games. Gordon figures to see his minutes trend up and he should be busy while Chris Paul (hamstring) remains on the shelf. He should be owned in standard leagues.

Eric Gordon (knee) is back in the starting lineup against the Nets on Wednesday.

He's missed the last eight games due to a knee contusion to his bad knee that gave him problems in New Orleans. The Rockets desperately need him to play minutes, so he could hit the ground running in his return today. He's worth an add in standard leagues until Chris Paul (hamstring) returns.
Jan 16 - 6:25 PM

There's some hope that Eric Gordon (knee) will be able to return to the court for Wednesday's game against the Nets, according to sources of Shams Charania.

Gordon is officially being listed as questionable, and we'll have a better idea on his status following shootaround, but it appears there's a chance he'll make it back to the court following an eight-game absence tonight. He'll likely start if he's cleared, which would translate to fewer minutes for Austin Rivers and Gerald Green. Stay tuned.
Jan 16 - 11:01 AM

Eric Gordon (right knee) has been upgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Nets.

Gordon has been sidelined since late December, but coach Mike D'Atoni said on Monday that Gordon might be able to make it back to the court sometime this week. When he does return to game action, Gordon will eat into the playing time of Austin Rivers, Danuel House and Gerald Green.
Jan 15 - 12:51 PM

Eric Gordon (right knee) will not play on Monday vs. Memphis.

Mike D'Antoni hinted that Gordon might be able to make it back to the court sometime this week, so while Monday won't be the day, perhaps he'll be able to get back out there for Wednesday's game against the Nets. Austin Rivers, Danuel House and Gerald Green will continue to pick up the slack in his absence, with James Harden doing ridiculous things on offense.
Jan 14 - 5:50 PM

Coach Mike D'Antoni said that Eric Gordon (right knee soreness) could return sometime next week.

So, we now know that Gordon will not play on Sunday, which will be his seventh straight game out of the lineup. Austin Rivers, Danuel House and Gerald Green will all continue to soak up additional minutes with Gordon on the shelf.
Jan 12 - 1:36 PM

Eric Gordon (right knee soreness) won't be re-evaluated until the end of the week.

That doesn't mean he will be back by then either. Gordon remains day-to-day, but owners in weekly formats should roll with someone else. Austin Rivers, Danuel House and Gerald Green have all provided low-end value in Gordon's absence.
Jan 7 - 12:03 PM

Eric Gordon (right knee soreness) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Nuggets.

It'll be his fourth straight game on the sidelines, and for now, we'll be considering him questionable for Wednesday's game against the Bucks. Austin Rivers will continue to start with him out and there will be more opportunity for Danuel House with the second unit.
Jan 6 - 4:43 PM

Eric Gordon (knee) will not play on Saturday against the Blazers, and is also doubtful to play on Monday against the Nuggets.

His bruised knee issue will cost him at least a week, which isn't a big surprise given how many right knee problems he's had over his career. The Rockets leaned heavily on Austin Rivers with 44 minutes on Thursday night, and Danuel House was terrific with 17 points. Rivers could be a hold in 12-team leagues while House is worth a look as a stream. James Harden will probably have another solid game. If you're in a pinch and want to drop Gordon, it's not a terrible idea.
Jan 4 - 4:55 PM

Eric Gordon (knee) will not play on Thursday against the Warriors.

The Rockets basically ruled him out on Wednesday night, but he's officially out. Austin Rivers should be looking at minutes in the upper 30s with the vast majority of his minutes coming next to James Harden. He could also close, so he's a possible short-term option in deeper leagues until Gordon is back.

Jan 3 - 9:40 PM

Eric Gordon (knee) is likely out against the Warriors on Thursday.

He is not expected to miss too much time, but the Rockets are wise to play it safe given Gordon's history with right knee issues. James Ennis (hamstring) is likely back, so the Rockets will have a little added depth on the perimeter. Austin Rivers could have some value until Gordon and/or Chris Paul (hamstring) are back. Gordon isn't a must-hold stash in shallower leagues.
