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.

Sunken fishing trawler off Queensland coast to be examined by police divers
A recovery operation will start on Saturday to salvage a fishing trawler that sank off the Queensland coast earlier this week. Police divers have been attempting to reach the vessel this morning to hopefully recover the bodies of the men still missing.

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.
