The Houston Rockets can't seem to catch a break this season, and aside from not having their two best players available in John Wall and Christian Wood, they have suffered yet another tough blow.
Eric Gordon, who suffered a non-contact groin injury, was averaging 17.8 points in 29.3 minutes per game prior to the unfortunate play.
He will be out four-to-six weeks.

The veteran guard isn't really looking to re-build this late in his career, considering the Rockets are destined to not make the playoffs this season.
The 32 year-old has played in some important playoff games throughout his career, and even ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski had recently reported that numerous other NBA teams were interested in a potential trade for Gordon later this season.
