Rockets reportedly may move Eric Gordon into starting lineup
The Houston Rockets continue to be a major disappointment this season and may be making a change to their starting lineup in hopes of shaking things up.
Both The Athletic’s Kelly Iko and Shams Charania reported on Monday that Houston may move Eric Gordon into the starting lineup on Tuesday in place of James Ennis.

Ennis, James Harden, Clint Capela, Chris Paul, and PJ Tucker have started most of the team’s games this season. Gordon has been leading the bench unit and was the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year two seasons ago, though he has made 8 starts this season.
Gordon has averaged 15.7 points per game this season, compared to 8.3 for Ennis. The Rockets are 11-14 and have lost 7 of their last 9 games. Head coach Mike D’Antoni had previously hinted at some changes being made to the team’s starting lineup.
