Houston Rockets forward/center Ryan Anderson (illness) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks. What It Means: Corey Brewer replaced Anderson last night, but it'll be the James Harden show per usual for Houston on Wednesday. He turned in a 40-point triple double on Tuesday and will have plenty of opportunity again versus Milwaukee. Harden is our second-ranked fantasy option for the Wednesday night slate and we project him for 28.6 points, 11.1 assists, 7.8 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 2.5 3-pointers. Source: Rotoworld.com

Houston Rockets forward/center Ryan Anderson (illness) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Miami Heat. What It Means: Corey Brewer will start in place of Anderson, whose absence will also create more offensive opportunities for James Harden and Eric Gordon. Anderson should be considered questionable for Wednesday's contest against the Milwaukee Bucks. Despite the starting nod going to Brewer, our models are high on Trevor Ariza tonight, projecting him for 14.0 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.9 3-pointers in 37.0 minutes of...

Ryan Anderson (illness) won't play for Rockets against Miami

Eric Gordon (toe) not playing in Rockets' matchup with Minnesota

Houston Rockets shooting guard Eric Gordon (left big toe) will not play Wednesday versus the Minnesota Timberwolves. What It Means: Gordon also sat out Tuesday's contest against the Charlotte Hornets and should be considered questionable for Friday against the Memphis Grizzlies after he didn't travel with the team. James Harden will be even busier than usual -- he finished with 40 points, 15 rebounds and 10 assists on Tuesday -- and Corey Brewer should also benefit. Brewer is projected to turn in 7.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.2 steals in 25.6 minutes against the...

Rockets will not have Eric Gordon (toe) for matchup with Charlotte

Houston Rockets shooting guard Eric Gordon (sprained left big toe) has officially been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Charlotte Hornets. What It Means: Gordon was considered a game-time call, but head coach Mike D'Antoni had already admitted the guard was unlikely to play. K.J. McDaniels, Corey Brewer and Tyler Ennis all stand to benefit, while James Harden will be even busier than usual. Harden is numberFire's top-rated fantasy play on Tuesday night, and we project him to finish with 27.9 points, 10.8 assists, 7.5 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 2.2 3-pointers versus...

Eric Gordon (toe) coming down to a game-time call for Rockets

Houston Rockets shooting guard Eric Gordon (toe) will be a game-time call for Tuesday's matchup with the Charlotte Hornets. What It Means: Gordon isn't expected to play, according to head coach Mike D'Antoni. K.J. McDaniels, Tyler Ennis and Corey Brewer should all see some extra run, while James Harden will have even more looks on offense. Harden is numberFire's top-rated fantasy play on Tuesday night, and we project him to finish with 27.9 points, 10.8 assists, 7.5 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 2.2 3-pointers versus Charlotte.

Rockets' Eric Gordon (toe) still questionable against Charlotte

Houston Rockets shooting guard Eric Gordon (toe) didn't practice on Monday and missed Houston's shootaround on Tuesday, but is listed as questionable to suit up against the Charlotte Hornets on Tuesday night. What It Means: With Tuesday's game being the first half of a back-to-back, expect Houston to be cautious with Gordon tonight. Look for Corey Brewer to draw the start if Gordon can't go. If Gordon does play, our models project him for 17.4 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 30.1 minutes of action on Tuesday. Source: Rotoworld.com

Eric Gordon (toe) questionable for front end of Rockets' back-to-back

Houston Rockets shooting guard Eric Gordon (sprained big left toe) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Charlotte Hornets. What It Means: The Rockets may play it safe for the first game of a back-to-back. Corey Brewer, Sam Dekker and K.J. McDaniels would all receive more opportunity if Gordon sits. numberFire's metrics currently project Gordon to score 16.8 points and 3.2 3-pointers, with 3.1 rebounds and 3.0 assists, in 30.4 minutes on Tuesday against the Hornets. Gordon ranks 66th in the NBA with a 1.6 nERD this season. Source:...

Rockets hoping Patrick Beverley (wrist) will be active versus Thunder

Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverley (wrist) is "gonna warm up and try it" against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday, according to head coach Mike D'Antoni. What It Means: Beverley has missed three of Houston's past four contests and his shooting may be impacted by the right wrist injury. However, the Rockets will need his defensive prowess against Russell Westbrook and the Thunder on Thursday night. Beverley's presence will take away some opportunity from Corey Brewer and Tyler Ennis, but owners should start him per usual. If Beverley does suit up against the Thunder,...

Despite slow start, Rockets come back to beat Wizards 101-91

Despite slow start, Rockets come back to beat Wizards 101-91

Gordon’s 31 and Harden’s triple-double lead the way. It wasn’t easy but the Rockets got their first win of 2017 by beating the Wizards 101-91. It is the Rockets’ fourth straight victory and it completes the season sweep of the Wizards. Houston got off to one of its slowest starts of the season. Corey Brewer got the start over an injured Patrick Beverley, who missed his second straight game with a wrist injury. Houston was not a good match-up for Washington given that there was not a pure point guard to defend Wall. Brewer and Eric Gordon gave it a try, but Wall was able to dominate...

Rockets reportedly trying to trade for Kosta Koufos

It’s bittersweet news for the “trade Corey Brewer” movement. The Rockets had been known seekers of another big man — despite their players’ insistence that the team can do just fine with Nene Hilario and Montrezl Harrell filling the minutes at center — and now a target has emerged. Kosta Koufos, one of the fistful of centers on the Sacramento Kings, is the apple of Daryl Morey’s eye, Marc Stein reports. And Corey Brewer, who was terrible last year and at the start of this season before improving to decent since, is up for grabs. Have heard from a few teams HOU is dangling...
