Eric Gordon of the Houston Rockets avoided a serious injury because an X-ray of his left ankle was negative.
Head coach Mike D’Antoni wants him to “stay for a few days.”
According to reports, the Rockets will wait to observe how Gordon’s ankle reacts overnight to determine whether he will miss the game.
Gordon is an important opportunity for the Rockets to enter the playoffs.
The Rockets do not have a deep rotation because they usually only play eight to nine players per game.
The missing Gordon will put more pressure on the stars James Harden and Russell Westbrook, and players such as Austin Rivers, Daniel House and Ben McRamore will be asked to step up the game.
