Though he was able to get some shots up during Wednesday morning’s practice session, Paul, now 32 years of age, has been dealing with a sore right groin. In his 31 appearances with the Rockets this season, the former No. 4 overall pick in the 2005 Draft has posted averages of 19.4 points on 46.0 percent shooting from the field (40.3 percent from beyond the arc), 8.6 assists, and 5.7 rebounds.
Gordon (back) played just ten minutes in Tuesday’s 114-107 win over the Orlando Magic. The former Indiana Hoosier has played 47 games with the Rockets this season, averaging 19.1 points on 42.1 percent shooting from the field (33.6 percent from downtown), 2.5 assists, and 2.4 rebounds. If he isn’t cleared to play in Thursday game, Gerald Green would likely be given a starting nod.
