Eric Gordon may be unavailable for the Houston Rockets this Wednesday in their first matchup against the Golden State Warriors this season.

According to multiple reports, Gordon is questionable due to a sore left hamstring.

The news comes just a day after the Rockets broke their two-game losing streak in Memphis against the Grizzlies. Interestingly enough, that was a game in which Gordon did this:

Probably his only highlight of the season.

The former Sixth Man of the Year is hardly living up to the big contract he signed this offseason. In seven games, Gordon has averaged a career-low 10.3 PPG on 27.8% shooting for the field and 23.3% from three (both career lows) in a little over 30 minutes a game.

That doesn’t even include his defensive effort — granted the Rockets haven’t been stellar as a whole. Still, that doesn’t give him a pass for this:

The listing of sore hamstring could definitely be that of affording the 30-year-old some rest. If they are worried about his health and giving him any opportunity to get back into playing shape — if that is indeed an issue for him — then doing it against a Warriors team that is just recently without Stephen Curry and Draymond Green, and doing it at home, is a pretty viable option.

There is no official word on his status as of now, but we will surely have eyes on the injury report tomorrow.
