Eric Gordon shot 4-of-13 with a pair of 3-pointers during Sunday's loss, scoring 11 points with two rebounds, one assist and three turnovers.
Gordon checked in early and logged 31 minutes, but couldn't duplicate his playoff career-high 27-point eruption from Game 2. P.J. Tucker also cooled off with six points, six boards and zero defensive stats in 33 minutes, Trevor Ariza had six points on 2-of-6 shooting, and the result was a 126-85 shellacking in Oracle Arena. Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said afterward that his team "played soft" tonight, and they'll only have one day to regroup before Game 4. May 20 - 10:41 PM

Eric Gordon scored 27 points while shooting 6-of-9 from three and had three rebounds and two assists in Houston's Game 2 win over Golden State on Wednesday.

This was a scoring high for Gordon in these playoffs and the most he's scored since March 27th against the Bulls. He shot well, going 8-of-15 from the field and 5-of-5 from the charity stripe. Gordon was announced as one of the three finalists for Sixth Man of the Year along with Lou Williams and Fred VanVleet, and he proved why tonight in 32 minutes off the bench.

Eric Gordon scored 25 points with two rebounds, one steal and four 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Jazz on Friday night.

After going 5-of-22 in the first two games of this series, he busted out of a slump early with 17 points in the first half to help Houston get to 70 points. Gordon's minutes have been fairly high when the games are close with an average of 31.3 minutes per game in his previous postseason outings this year. He'll be highly scoring dependent, but Gordon could be a DFS play now that he could be out of his cold spell.
May 5 - 1:00 AM

Eric Gordon shot 5-of-16 to score 15 points with six rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in 34 minutes on Wednesday.

Gordon went 0-of-6 from the field in Game 1 but he's never been shy offensively, and he finished as one of four players in double-figures for Houston. None of his bench mates joined him as the second unit shot a combined 7-of-25 from the field (28.0 percent) -- they'll need more supporting production to reclaim homecourt advantage with a victory in Utah on Friday and/or Sunday.
May 2 - 11:02 PM

Eric Gordon finished Sunday's Game 1 win vs. Utah without a field goal and just seven points in his 31 minutes of action.

And the Rockets still won by 14 points. Gordon was 7-of-9 from the charity stripe, adding three boards, four assists, and a steal to his line. Needless to say, we expect Gordon to be better moving forward. It's going to be a challenge to be worse.
Apr 29 - 6:25 PM

Eric Gordon shot 3-of-10 from the field and 1-of-7 from deep on Sunday, scoring seven points with two assists, one rebound, one steal and one block in 30 minutes.

Gordon didn't get to the free-throw line and he wasn't the only Rockets player to struggle from downtown. Trevor Ariza, P.J. Tucker, Chris Paul and Gerald Green combined for a 2-of-18 mark from deep, which is almost unthinkable. The Wolves allowed opponents to shoot 36.6% from deep this season (13th-highest in the league) and we're expecting these guys to find the range sooner rather than later.
Apr 15 - 11:58 PM

Eric Gordon (ankle) won't suit up vs. the Kings on Wednesday.

The Rockets are resting most of their key players tonight, including James Harden and Chris Paul, so it's no surprise to see Gordon get the same treatment. He should be fine for the postseason.
Apr 11 - 9:09 PM

Eric Gordon (ankle) is questionable with a sore left ankle to face the Kings on Wednesday.

After the injury to Luc Mbah a Moute (shoulder) last night, you would think the Rockets are careful here. If he is out, Gerald Green and P.J. Tucker could see more minutes.
Apr 11 - 3:05 PM

Eric Gordon played through a foot injury and had six points on 2-of-9 shooting in 27 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Lakers.

Gordon should be good to go for the playoffs, but we'll have to see if he plays in Wednesday's finale against the Kings. Given that Houston has nothing left to play for or prove, it would make sense for them to play the bench heavy minutes tonight.
Apr 11 - 1:16 AM

Eric Gordon (foot) is probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers.

His injury isn't serious and the Rockets have just being resting their veterans with the No. 1 seed locked up. Assuming EG plays on Tuesday, there's a good chance he doesn't on Wednesday.
Apr 9 - 6:47 PM

Eric Gordon (foot) will not play vs. the Thunder on Saturday.

The only thing the Rockets are playing for is to stick it to the Thunder, who would fall to ninth in the Western Conference with a loss. With Gordon out, Gerald Green will be the understudy called upon with more P.J. Tucker and Luc Mbah a Moute.
Apr 7 - 6:50 PM

Coach Mike D'Antoni said that Eric Gordon (foot) is questionable for Saturday's game vs. OKC.

D'Antoni told reporters that Gordon's status for Saturday's game will depend on how he looks in practice on Friday afternoon. We should have an update shortly. If Gordon is unable to suit up, Luc Mbah a Moute, P.J. Tucker and Gerald Green would likely divvy up extra minutes.
Apr 6 - 12:33 PM

Eric Gordon (foot twinge) and Ryan Anderson (ankle sprain) are out Thursday against Portland.

It's being called a "twinge of something," according to coach Mike D'Antoni. Gordon is likely going to get at least one more game off with the Rockets having nothing to play for. Luc Mbah a Moute, P.J. Tucker and Gerald Green should get some added run.
Apr 5 - 6:22 PM

Eric Gordon (knee) went 7-of-15 from the field and 2-of-3 from the stripe on his way to 18 points in Sunday's blowout loss to San Antonio.

Gordon added two triples, three boards, one assist and one turnover in the 29 minutes he was out there, and he was the only Houston player to hit at least 46% of his shot attempts, which tells you the type of game it was for the Rockets. Chris Paul (hip) is expected to get back to the court on Tuesday, so Gordon figures to head back to the bench when the Rockets take on the Wizards. His knee looked fine, though, so that shouldn't be an issue moving forward.
Apr 1 - 6:28 PM

Eric Gordon (knee) will play on Sunday against the Spurs.

This confirms that the Rockets will just pick their spots on resting players. Gordon has a history of knee problems, so this will be something to watch. Feel free to use him on Sunday, but you may want to watch for updates.
