Rockets' Eric Gordon projected to continue hot start in Chris Paul's absence

He did not play in Houston's second game of the season, a 105-100 win at Sacramento on Wednesday.

Without Chris Paul in the lineup, Mike D'Antoni started the reigning Sixth Man of the Year, Eric Gordon. The team ruled him out for Saturday's game against the Mavericks.

Paul had four points, 11 assists and eight rebounds in his debut against Golden State.

Germany: Knife attack in Munich leaves several injured
A manhunt has been launched in Munich after a knife-wielding attacker injured several people early Saturday, police said. Officers warned residents to stay in their homes because the suspect is said to be still on the run.

Paul has been dealing with soreness in his left knee since colliding with the Grizzlies' Mario Chalmers in a preseason game October 11.

In his absence, James Harden would likely absorb an even greater portion of the playmaking duties given the Rockets do not carry any other experienced point guards on the roster.

According to reports, Houston is already looking to recruit a free agent to add cover for that position and one player who recently became available is veteran Jameer Nelson following his release by the Denver Nuggets. The Rockets are going to take it slowly, because it's still the beginning of the season and they don't want to rush him back with goals of playing in June.

"It's only a bump", D'Antoni said.

The Texas-based outfit faces the Grizzlies in Houston on Monday before opening a three-game road trip. It sounds like the Rockets won't play him until he's 100 percent.

"I don't think there's (concern.) All indications are he should be OK".
