Top Eric Gordon News

  • Rockets' Eric Gordon: Posts game-high 24 points

    Gordon totaled 24 points (8-17 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 7-7 FT), seven assists and two steals in 34 minutes during Saturday's 117-114 win over the Pistons.

    Gorden couldn't find his shooting touch from beyond the arc, but he still managed to lead the game in scoring with his 17 attempts from the field. He was able to rebound nicely from his last performance, when he was held to only nine points over 31 minutes Wednesday against the Wizards.

  • Rockets' Eric Gordon: Starting Saturday

    Gordon (knee) will start Saturday at Detroit, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.

    Gordon sat out the tail end of a back-to-back Thursday night but will be back with the first unit for Saturday's tilt. He is joined by Daishen Nix, Kenyon Martin, Tari Eason and Jabari Smith in the starting lineup.

  • Rockets' Eric Gordon: Not on injury report

    Gordon (knee) is not listed on the injury report for Saturday's tilt against the Pistons.

    The veteran sat out on the second night of a back-to-back Thursday but will return to the rotation Saturday. He could see increased usage with both Kevin Porter (foot) and Jalen Green (calf) out. In January, Gordon is averaging 14.7 points, 3.1 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 30.4 minutes.

  • Rockets' Eric Gordon: Won't play Thursday

    Gordon has been ruled out for Thursday's game against Cleveland due to right knee soreness.

    Gordon has played at least 30 minutes in each of his last six appearances, averaging 15.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 31.3 minutes per game over that stretch. However, he's dealing with a knee issue that will sideline him for the first time since Dec. 27. Jae'Sean Tate (ankle) is also out, so Kenyon Martin, Garrison Mathews and Tari Eason will likely see increased run Thursday.

  • Rockets' Eric Gordon: Steps up as facilitator

    Gordon finished with 19 points (5-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 9-11 FT), eight assists and two rebounds across 32 minutes in Monday's 140-132 loss to the Lakers.

    With point guard Kevin Porter (foot) missing his third straight game, Gordon stepped up as a facilitator, finishing the night as the Rockets' leading assist man. Assuming Porter's absence doesn't prove to be an extended one, Gordon can't be depended on to regularly offer useful production in the assists column. Instead, Gordon is best utilized as a streaming option for points, free-throw percentage and three-pointers in games when Houston is without one of its other four starters (Porter, Jalen Green, Alperen Sengun and Jabari Smith).

  • Rockets' Eric Gordon: Ties season high in scoring

    Gordon totaled 24 points (8-16 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 7-8 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one block across 30 minutes during Sunday's 121-100 loss to the Clippers.

    Gordon led all Houston players in scoring while tying a season-high mark, which he set Nov. 18 against Indiana. Gordon has tallied 10 or more points in eight of his last 10 games and is averaging 13.5 points, 2.6 assists and 1.8 rebounds during that stretch.

  • Rockets' Eric Gordon: Available, no restrictions Thursday

    Head coach Stephen Silas relayed Thursday that Gordon will be available sans restrictions for the evening's contest versus the Jazz, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.

    Gordon hasn't appeared in both legs of a back-to-back set yet this season, but that will change Thursday. Per Danielle Lerner of the Houston Chronicle, Gordon's health is reportedly improving, and the hope is that he will be able to appear regularly in back-to-backs moving forward.

  • Rockets' Eric Gordon: Turns back clock Monday

    Gordon had 19 points (7-12 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds and three assists over 33 minutes during Monday's 111-106 loss to the Mavericks.

    Gordon delivered a vintage performance Monday, finishing with his second-best scoring mark of the campaign and showing an efficient touch from beyond the arc. Gordon has scored in double digits in three of Houston's last four games, but he won't have a lot of value until he can shoot the rock on a consistent basis. He's made just 37.4 percent of his shots from the field and 34.8 percent from three since the start of December.

  • Rockets' Eric Gordon: Resting Tuesday

  • Rockets' Eric Gordon: Starting against Chicago

    Gordon is in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Bulls, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.

    Gordon missed the team's previous game with a left thumb contusion, but he's back in the lineup for this one, meaning Kenyon Martin heads back to the bench. Gordon is averaging 11.4 points per game while shooting 35.4 percent from three-point range this season.

  • Rockets' Eric Gordon: Good to go against Chicago

    Gordon (thumb) is available to play in Monday's matchup with the Bulls.

    Gordon has been upgraded from questionable to available Monday after missing the previous game with a left thumb contusion. The veteran guard will likely reclaim his starting spot for Kenyon Martin against the Bulls.

  • Rockets' Eric Gordon: Questionable Monday

    Gordon (thumb) is questionable for Monday's game against Chicago.

    Gordon sat out Friday against Dallas due to a left thumb contusion, but he'll have a chance to return against the Bulls. If he remains out, Tari Eason and Kenyon Martin could see increased run.

  • Rockets' Eric Gordon: Out Friday

    Gordon will miss Friday's game against the Mavericks due to a left thumb contusion, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.

    Gordon will get the night off Friday to let his thumb heal ahead of the team's road trip that features three- games across four days. In his absence, Kenyon Martin and Tari Eason will likely receive extended action. Gordon's next chance to suit up will come Monday against the Bulls.

  • Rockets' Eric Gordon: Logs 28 minutes in loss

    Gordon accumulated five points (2-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt), one assist and one steal in 28 minutes during Monday's 124-105 loss to the Spurs.

    Gordon continues to play significant minutes, adding to what is simply a confusing situation in Houston. Even though the Rockets are in rebuilding mode, the soon-to-be 34-year-old Gordon is averaging 29.5 minutes per contest, making it difficult for the team to open up more playing time for the likes of Josh Christopher, Tari Eason, Kenyon Martin and others. Since his contract for the 2023-24 season isn't guaranteed, Gordon could be a prime candidate to be moved ahead of the trade deadline. If he does end up being dealt, Gordon is unlikely to land with a team where he'll be able to fill as large of a role as he's currently handling in Houston.
