NBA Preview: Anthony Davis hopes to lead Pelicans to another surprise win over Rockets

With their backs against the wall, can New Orleans come up with another surprising win? The New Orleans Pelicans will face James Harden and his merry men of three-point archers, including Ryan Anderson and Eric Gordon, one final time this regular season on Friday. In the teams’ last meeting, Solomon Hill was the undisputed star, posting the best all-around game numbers of his career: 30 points, six rebounds and seven assists. His performance, along with timely support from Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday, helped propel the Pelicans to a rout of the Rockets despite the absence of DeMarcus...

Houston Rockets vs. Cleveland Cavaliers game preview

The NBA Champions arrive in Houston tonight for a nationally televised game. I don’t expect Tyronn Lue to rest his stars. As I type this, the Cavs lead the Orlando Magic at halftime with both LeBron James and Kyrie Irving playing normal minutes. The Rockets finally got back on track with a win over the Chicago Bulls in their building. After struggling to hit shots consistently or get stops against the Spurs and Jazz, Houston finally buckled down and held the Bulls to just 30 points across the middle quarters while Ryan Anderson led a welcome three-point barrage. We know the story for...

Should the Rockets be worried about Ryan Anderson’s back?

Should the Rockets be worried about Ryan Anderson’s back?

Anderson’s injury history could be rearing its head. Ryan Anderson could not finish Monday night's matchup with the San Antonio Spurs after his back tightened up. On Wednesday, he'd again sit against the Utah Jazz. The Houston Rockets would end up losing both games without him. On Friday it seemed iffy whether Anderson would play, but he'd end up giving it a go, and the Rockets blew the doors off the Chicago Bulls. The stretch four would pour in a game-high 21 points while shooting 50 percent from three. It was great to have him back in the lineup stretching the floor and providing some...

Ryan Anderson (back) expected to play for Rockets versus Chicago

Houston Rockets forward/center Ryan Anderson (back) appears likely to play Friday night versus the Chicago Bulls. What It Means: "I'm feeling a whole lot better. Each day I feel more and more loose," said Anderson on Friday after shootaround. He's on track to play after missing Wednesday's contest. Anderson's return means less run for Lou Williams, Eric Gordon, Trevor Ariza and Sam Dekker. numberFire's models project Anderson for 11.6 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 2.8 3-pointers in 26.1 minutes on Friday night.

Rockets replacing Ryan Anderson (back) with Eric Gordon against Utah

Houston Rockets shooting guard Eric Gordon will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Utah Jazz, with forward/center Ryan Anderson (back) unavailable. What It Means: Gordon is averaging 15.8 points, 2.8 3-pointers, 3.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists on 39.3 percent shooting from the field in five starts this season -- numbers that are actually worse than what he posts as a reserve. He doesn't quite carry as much DFS appeal as it may initially seem in a tough matchup versus the Jazz. Sam Dekker could also see a little extra run than normal. With Anderson out,...

Ryan Anderson out, Eric Gordon will start versus Utah

Ryan Anderson out, Eric Gordon will start versus Utah

Mike D’Antoni is doing some lineup juggling for tonight’s contest against the Jazz. Rockets forward Ryan Anderson left Monday night’s game against the San Antonio Spurs with back tightness, and now those spasms will keep him out a bit longer. It was announced that the sharpshooter will miss tonight’s contest against the Utah Jazz as well, according to the Houston Chronicle’s Jonathan Feigen. Feigen is also reporting that head coach Mike D’Antoni will move Eric Gordon into the starting lineup and send James Harden to match up with one of the Utah bigs. When Anderson missed time...

Ryan Anderson (back) remains doubtful for Houston on Wednesday

Ryan Anderson (back) remains doubtful to play Wednesday vs. the Jazz. What It Means: Anderson was forced to make an early exit with lower back tightness on Monday, and it's unlikely he suits up tonight. Look for Sam Dekker to see a significant increase in minutes and usage if Anderson can't play. In the three games he has played without Anderson this season, Dekker has averaged 14.3 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 28.3 minutes per game with a 19.7% usage rate. He ranks 100th in the NBA with a 0.7 nERD on the season. Source: Rotoworld.com

Ryan Anderson (back) doubtful for the Rockets on Wednesday

Houston Rockets forward/center Ryan Anderson (back) is doubtful to suit up against the Utah Jazz on Wednesday. What It Means: Anderson was forced to make an early exit with lower back tightness on Monday, and at the moment it looks like this may turn into a multi-game issue. Look for Sam Dekker to see a significant increase in minutes in Anderson can't go on Wednesday. In the three games he has played without Anderson this season, Dekker has averaged 14.3 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 28.3 minutes per game with a 19.7% usage rate.
