Eric Gordon scored 21 points with three rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers off the bench against the Pelicans on Wednesday.
He attempted nine from deep and he certainly won't get short-changed in that department on this squad. Gordon could be a candidate to start in some matchups, but it won't really affect his fantasy value because he'll have a higher usage rate when he's not next to James Harden and Chris Paul.

Date:

Eric Gordon (foot) returned to action for Friday's preseason finale, scoring 12 points on 5-of-10 shots with one rebound, one assist and two triples in 16 minutes.

We got another glimpse at Houston's main rotation tonight, and it's safe to assume that Gordon and Carmelo Anthony are going to be coming off the bench. They will still play a lot, and coach Mike D'Antoni said after the game that he basically has seven starters. Gordon is a reliable source of 3-pointers and points late in drafts.

Eric Gordon (foot) is good to go for Friday against the Grizzlies.

He was called questionable for a preseason game, so the Rockets aren't concerned here. Gordon could be starting in some matchups, but he'll likely be taking a ton of treys as the Rockets have attempted over 50 treys per game this season.
Oct 12 - 6:36 PM

Eric Gordon (foot) is listed as questionable for Friday's preseason finale.

Coach Mike D'Antoni said on Wednesday that he's expecting Gordon to play, so we'll take his word for it. Gordon projects to be an elite source of 3-pointers in the late rounds of drafts after finishing 8th in the NBA last season with 218 triples made.
Oct 11 - 12:26 PM

Mike D'Antoni said he expects Eric Gordon (foot) to play in Friday's preseason finale against the Grizzlies.

Gordon sat out Tuesday's game with a minor foot issue, but this isn't anything that will impact his status for the regular-season. If you need some triples late in your drafts, Gordon could be your guy.
Oct 10 - 1:32 PM

Eric Gordon (sore right foot) and Michael Carter-Williams (sore knee) have been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Shanghai Sharks.

Gordon initially injured himself during Sunday's exhibition game. Afterward, coach Mike D'Antoni said that Gordon could have played through the foot issue if he needed to, but that they would err on the side of caution and hold him out for a few days. Hopefully, the pain subsides, and Gordon is ready to rock by the start of the regular season next week.
Oct 9 - 1:14 PM

Eric Gordon jammed his foot during Sunday's exhibition game and will take the next few days off.

Mike D'Antoni said that Gordon could have played through the foot issue if he needed to, but they're going to play it safe with the oft-injured guard and make sure he's ready for opening night. He should be a nice source of points and triples this season, but we wouldn't look his way until the later rounds on draft day given his injury history.
Oct 7 - 7:15 PM

Coach Mike D'Antoni is "strongly leaning toward" starting Eric Gordon in a three-guard lineup, according to Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com.

It makes a lot of sense, especially with how this group did last season. The trio of Chris Paul, James Harden and Gordon had a sterling +28.9 net rating last season over 148 minutes in the regular season, so clearly this is likely a factor. They were just at a +5.2 in the playoffs, but of course they faced tougher competition. Even with this move, Gordon is more of a specialist in the second half of drafts because his per-minute numbers will dip.
Sep 26 - 2:15 PM

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.

Eric Gordon scored 19 points in a start against the Warriors on Saturday, adding with two rebounds, four 3-pointers and five turnovers in 34 minutes.

He came out shooting the lights out, scoring eight points in the first 4:30 of the game and going 4-of-4 from deep in the first half with 16 points. The second half was a different story as Gordon went 1-of-4 from both the field and the line. If Chris Paul is out for Game 7 on Monday, he'll have to put together a complete game for the Rockets to advance to the NBA Finals.
May 26 - 11:37 PM

Coach Mike D'Antoni says that Eric Gordon will start Game 6 against the Warriors on Saturday.

With Chris Paul being out due to a right hamstring strain, it's no surprise Gordon will get the start here. It's Gordon's first start of the playoffs and the Rockets will need him to step up to replace how well CP3 has played over the last couple of games. Paul's status going forward is still uncertain, so Gordon could also start on Monday in Game 7 if the Warriors win Game 6 on Saturday.
May 25 - 1:18 PM

Eric Gordon scored 24 points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday.

He made some big plays on both ends late in this game. Moving forward, coach Mike D'Antoni said Gordon could be looking at a play-making role while Chris Paul (hamstring) is out. Nothing is official yet on CP3, but for now we're expecting Gordon to post huge numbers in 36-42 minutes in Game 6 on Saturday.
May 24 - 11:58 PM

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.
May 17 - 12:09 AM

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.
