Pelicans G Eric Gordon separates shoulder, will not return


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2014) Pelicans guard Eric Gordon suffered a separated shoulder in Saturday's game and will not return, the team announced.

Gordon suffered the injury in the first half Saturday and wraps up his night with eight points on 4 of 7 shooting in 13 minutes. The Pelicans have two days off before facing the Kings Tuesday.


Eric Gordon bounce back seems unlikely


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2014) At the Fantasy Basketball Today blog Wednesday, I took a look at a handful of players who have gotten off to slow starts to the season, to see how Fantasy owners should handle them. Pelicans guard Eric Gordon is among the worst players in the league so far, and I'm not sure we should expect things to get much better:

"Gordon was once a model of offensive efficiency, but that has largely disappeared as his athleticism has been sapped by injuries. He posted a career-low free-throw rate last season, and that number has slid yet again this season. His shooting should rebound from where it's been, but he just doesn't have the athleticism to break down defenders and be a primary scoring option any more."

Gordon's scoring has disappeared, and he really doesn't do anything else to redeem his production. He is still owned in 66 percent of CBSSports.com Fantasy leagues, but he is entirely droppable at this point.

 


Pelicans G Eric Gordon can't buy a bucket Tuesday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2014) The struggles continued for Pelicans guard Eric Gordon Tuesday night against the Hornets.

Gordon got the start and missed all six of his shots, half of which came from downtown. He knocked down all four of his free throw attempts, finishing with four points, two assists, one rebound and two steals while logging 28 minutes of game action in a 100-91 victory.

Gordon is off to a slow start, converting only 7 of 34 shot attempts through four games this season. He also has 10 turnovers and just three assists.


Tyreke Evans will be at small forward in Pelicans starting lineup


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2014) Pelicans coach Monty Williams told reporters Monday guard Tyreke Evans will start at small forward in Tuesday's season opener against the Magic. Though, it comes as little surprise since Evans started the final two preseason games at small forward, according to the team's official website.

The rest of the starting lineup will be Jrue Holiday at point guard, Eric Gordon at shooting guard, Anthony Davis at power forward and Omer Asik at center.


Eric Gordon, Jrue Holiday both get the start for Pelicans in preseason opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Pelicans guards Eric Gordon and Jrue Holiday both got the start in Saturday's preseason opener against the Heat in Louisville.

Gordon made his first game appearance since having season-ending knee surgery last April. He was limited to 10 minutes of game action, scoring four points -- all on free throws -- while missing all four of his shot attempts, including two from downtown. He added two assists and one rebound.

Holliday, who had season-ending surgery to repair the stress fracture in his right tibia last January, also played 10 minutes but held scoreless on 0 of 2 shooting in his first game back. He chipped in with two rebounds in a 98-86 victory.


Eric Gordon cleared for contact


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Pelicans guard Eric Gordon has been cleared to take part in full-contact offseason drills ahead of training camp, The Times-Picayune reports.

Gordon underwent season-ending knee surgery last April, but is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season. 


Eric Gordon expects to resume basketball activities this month


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2014) Pelicans guard Eric Gordon expects to resume basketball activities this month, NBA.com reports. Gordon underwent arthroscopic surgery to clean up his left knee in mid-April.

"Over the previous two to three years, I've been forced to mostly focus on rehabbing and my body recovering, instead of working out like I want to, as far as lifting and building muscle," Gordon said. "I'm going to change various things this year, so that I can make sure every time I get on the court, I'm the best athlete on the floor, like I was a few years ago, before I came to New Orleans."

Tyreke Evans could push Eric Gordon to bench


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans closed his season out strong after a slow start, and the impetus was a move to the starting lineup March. After he found success as a starter, the team might make the move permanent next season.

From March 1 on, he averaged 20.0 points, 6.5 assists and 5.5 rebounds per game, while starting 21 of the team's final 22 games. His success could lead the team to consider a full-time switch next season, and coach Monty Williams told the team's official website that is something they will consider, especially with incumbent shooting guard Eric Gordon's inability to stay healthy yet again.

Evans ended up finishing fifth on the team in scoring at 14.5 points per game, while adding 4.7 rebounds and 5.0 assists, and appearing in the third-most games. 


Eric Gordon set for surgery Wednesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) Pelicans guard Eric Gordon will undergo arthroscopic surgery to clean up his left knee Wednesday, the result of an injury that cost him the final 13 games of the season.

Gordon is expected to be fully recovered from the surgery by the start of next season, though at this point it may be a stretch to expect him to be fully healthy. He missed 18 games this season, which is actually his lowest total since he was a rookie in 2008-09.

Gordon finished the 2013-14 season averaging 15.4 points, 2.6 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game. 


Pelicans shut down Eric Gordon, Anthony Davis


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Gordon will have to undergo athroscopic surgery on his knee next week, but is expected to be fully healthy in time for next season. He finished the season averaging 15.4 points, 3.3 assists and 1.2 steals per game in his 64 appearances.

Davis appeared in 67 games in his second season, after appearing in just 64 the year before. He took his game to another level when he was healthy, averaging 20.8 points, 10.0 rebounds, 2.8 blocks and 1.3 steals in 35.2 minutes per game. 


Eric Gordon not expected back this season


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2014) Pelicans guard Eric Gordon has missed the team's last nine games due to tendinitis in his left knee, and coach Monty Williams doesn't expect him back for the rest of the season.

"He's getting evaluations on his knee," Williams told The Times-Picayune after Tuesday's practice "It's the same place (Gordon's situation) we were the other day. I doubt that he'll play anymore this year, but that's me."

Gordon will likely miss the team's final games, meaning he will finish the season with 64 games played, his highest total since his rookie season. He is averaging 15.4 points, 2.6 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game in 32.1 minutes.
