Houston Rockets Injury Update: Harden to return but lose Gordon

Houston Sports NEWS

Despite the return of James Harden, the injury bug continues to plague the Houston Rockets with the loss of Eric Gordon.

After missing the last three games due to a Grade-1 hamstring injury, Houston Rockets star guard James Harden will make his return to the court tonight against the Chicago Bulls.

Although the Rockets are ready to welcome back their MVP, Houston finds themselves hit by another injury to one of their core players. According to Jonathan Feigen of The Houston Chronicle, Eric Gordon will miss Saturday’s game due to a sore leg.

With James Harden back from his strained left hamstring after sitting out Friday against the Nets, guard Eric Gordon was ruled out for Saturday’s game with a sore leg.

Although he has had a rough start to the season, Gordon remains a key contributor for the Rockets. Losing Gordon will make the Rockets’ bench short-handed against the Bulls. Despite shooting a career-low 32.1 percent from the field, the former Sixth Man of the Year winner is averaging 15.0 points and over the first seven games.

In addition to Gordon, the Rockets may also be without starting forward James Ennis. Following his return in Friday’s victory over the Brooklyn Nets, Ennis is questionable with a sore right hamstring.
