James Harden and Russell Westbrook shared their thoughts on the ankle injury of their teammate in the Houston Rockets, Eric Gordon.

The two superstars showed their support for Gordon’s recovery, yet they said the Rockets have the depth and talent to cover his absence.

“Of course Eric is a huge part of what we’re doing… Hopefully he can get his ankle healed as soon as possible. But we’ve played with adversity all year. It’s another opportunity for us to step up,” Harden told Kelly Iko of The Athletic.

“Hopefully yea but we’ll wait and see what happens… We got a lot of guys that’ll be ready to go when their name is called so we’ll definitely be prepared,” Westbrook added.
