Houston Rockets G Eric Gordon left Thursday’s game vs. the Los Angeles Clippers due to knee soreness and was unable to return in the second half. The Rockets were in the midst of being blown out at home by the Clippers, so it isn’t too surprising Houston held Gordon out the rest of the game.

Gordon finished with just five points and 10.25 fantasy points. He has been dealing with the knee injury for most of this season. If Gordon is to miss time, the Rockets will be even more thin in their rotation. Austin Rivers could be in line for more minutes off the bench as well as Ben McLemore.
