Rockets’ Eric Gordon questionable, Gerald Green out Tuesday vs. Bucks

Eric Gordon, Gerald Green, Rockets

The Houston Rockets are listing shooting guard Eric Gordon as questionable and Gerald Green as out for Tuesday’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Gordon is dealing with a sprained right ankle, while Green is out with a strained left adductor, per Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.

The Rockets are 47-27 on the season, which is good for third place in the Western Conference standings. Houston is 8-2 in its last 10 games and currently on a two-game winning streak.

In 60 games this season for the Rockets, Eric Gordon is averaging 16.5 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.1 assists. The sharpshooter is shooting 40.4 percent from the field, 34.8 percent from beyond the arc and 78.2 percent from the free-throw line.

Houston is 38-22 when Gordon is in the lineup.

Gerald Green has appeared in 69 games this season for the Rockets. The high-flyer is putting up 9.4 points and 2.6 rebounds while shooting 40.1 percent overall, 35.2 percent from the 3-point line and 83.8 percent from the charity stripe.

It should be a great game on Tuesday in Milwaukee. The Bucks have the best record in the NBA.

It’s going to be an MVP duel, as Rockets guard James Harden will look to close the gap on Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo. Houston will likely update the status of Gordon again on Tuesday.
