Gordon scored 23 points (7-13 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT) with five assists in 37 minutes off the Pelican bench in the loss to the Clippers on Sunday.

Gordon was punished for being late to a team meeting, but played his usual complement of minutes. Maybe his success off the bench against the Clippers will lead to a sixth-man role. As long as he is getting his minutes, fantasy owners won't mind the change in role.

Gordon started Sunday's game against the Clippers off the bench because he was late for a team meeting, the Times-Picayune reports.

This is actually comforting news for those that have a vested interest in Gordon since it means that he'll likely return to the starting lineup after Sunday's game. In the meantime, he still has a chance to see a normal compliment of minutes off the bench against the Clippers.

Gordon will head to the bench for Sunday's game against the Clippers, broadcaster Sean Kelley reports.

The Pelicans are dealing with multiple injuries and so they will switch up their lineup to have a scorer coming off the bench in Gordon. This dynamic is not expected to be implemented in the long-term and Gordon will likely see significant minutes off the bench regardless.

Gordon put up 16 points (6-14 FG, 3-6 3Pt) and seven assists in Tuesday's win over the Nets.

The Pelicans spread the workload around Tuesday, with six players scoring in double-figures. Gordon has now scored 16 points in each of the last three games, and he could be asked to do slightly more offensively if Tyreke Evans (ankle) misses any additional time. Gordon has has also been one of the best sources for three-pointers of late, as he's made at least three in seven of his last eight contests.

Gordon scored 16 points (6-11 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT) with three rebounds, three assists and two steals in 30 minutes during Monday's win over the Bucks.

He's scored at least 16 points in six of his last seven games, but if the ankle injury Tyreke Evans suffered on Monday proves to be serious, look for Gordon's usage to increase while Evans is sidelined.

Gordon has averaged 16.2 points and 4.8 assists over the Pelicans' five-game win streak.

Gordon has had a turbulent career in New Orleans, but has been rising to the occasion with Jrue Holiday, Anthony Davis and Ryan Anderson sidelined by injuries. Gordon should continue to get all the run he can handle for the depleted Pelicans, which should lead to continued elevated scoring levels.

Gordon scored 31 points (9-14 FG, 7-8 3Pt, 6-6 FT) with three rebounds, three assists and two steals in 39 minutes during Monday's loss to the Jazz.The seven three-pointers ties his career high. Gordon had scored in single digits in each of his last three games before Monday's explosion, but as long as Anthony Davis is sidelined with a shoulder injury, Gordon figures to see plenty of looks as the Pelicans scrounge for all the offense they can muster.

Gordon shot a paltry 1-of-10 from the field, marking his third straight game shooting sub-35 percent.

Gordon was stymied in back-to-back games against the Thunder before Saturday night's matchup against the Bulls. He struggled near the rim against the likes of Serge Ibaka and Joakim Noah, but still converted 44 percent of his three-pointers in the past three games. With matchups against the Jazz and Pacers before the All-Star break, his best chance of breaking his "slump" is to camp out on the perimeter.

Gordon scored 11 points (4-15 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT) with six rebounds, a team-high six assists and a block in 42 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Nuggets.

In nine games since Jrue Holiday went down with a leg injury, Gordon is averaging 14.7 points, 5.4 assists, 3.7 boards and 1.9 threes. He's likely gone off your waiver wire, but in shallow leagues where he's still available Gordon could provide you with a sneaky boost in assists.
