by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Pelicans' Eric Gordon goes for 31 points on Monday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2015) Pelicans guard Eric Gordon picked up 31 points on Monday against the Jazz.

Gordon shot 9-14 from the field, including 7-8 from beyond the arc. He sunk all six of his free throws. Gordon also added three rebounds, three assists and two steals during the contest. 

Gordon did turn the ball over six times, which drew some ire from his coach. ''It was bad execution, throwing the ball away,'' Monty Williams said. ''We had chances in transition to find an open guy and we didn't.''


Pelicans SG Eric Gordon scores season-high 28 vs. Clippers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2015) Pelicans shooting guard Eric Gordon scored a season-high 28 points on 10 of 20 shooting, including 5 of 7 shooting from three-point range, in his team's 108-103 win over the Clippers Friday.

"I had it going good when I first hit those couple 3s early in the game and then I attacked the rim," Gordon said after the game, per the Associated Press. "As long as I keep mixing it up like that, it's going to be hard for a team to predict what I'm going to do."

Gordon set several season highs while leading the Pelicans in scoring Friday, including in shots made, shots attempts and three-pointers made. He also racked up seven assists, two rebounds and one steal in 38 minutes of action. The Pelicans will square off with the Hawks Monday.


Eric Gordon not a long-term fix


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) After overcoming his latest injury, Pelicans guard Eric Gordon is starting to see his Fantasy value rising, as he has been added in 17 percent of CBSSports.com leagues over the last week. Now that he is owned in 53 percent of leagues, what should Fantasy owners be expecting from Gordon moving forward?

What made Gordon a budding superstar before his time in New Orleans was his ability to bully his way to the free-throw line and supplement his game with freebies. He has been scoring at a decent clip since returning from a shoulder injury, averaging 13.2 points per game, but has been to the free-throw line just eight times in five games, a bad sign for his chances of keeping this up. Gordon is a good shooter, but probably not enough to sustain a scoring rate in the teens, though he'll probably still have a few more good games in him, with Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday dealing with injuries.

If Gordon keeps getting 10 shots every game, he can probably serve a purpose for Fantasy owners, especially if he can add four to five assists consistently as well. However, when Holiday and Davis get back, it will be hard for him to keep this up, so don’t' drop anyone who might have some long-term value for Gordon -- he's probably just a short-term fix. 


Pelicans' Jrue Holiday is considered day to day with ankle injury


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2015) After sustaining an ankle injury during Monday’s loss over the Celtics, Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday is considered day to day, reports NBA.com.

Holiday has been ruled out of Wednesday’s game at Detroit, but there is no timetable on his return. His next chance to play will be Friday at Philadelphia.

"We think it's day to day, but we're not going to put a timetable on Jrue," Pelicans coach Monty Williams said.

Guard Tyreke Evans is expected to start in Holiday's place and Eric Gordon and Jimmer Fredette could be in line for some playing time at point guard.

The Pelicans are 4 1/2-point underdogs to the Pistons.


Pelicans' Eric Gordon can't find his shot in return from shoulder injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2015) Pelicans shooting guard Eric Gordon made his return from a 21-game absence due to a torn labrum in his shoulder, but had a hard time finding his shot on Monday against the Wizards.

Gordon, who played with a black compression undershirt during the game to help stabilize his left shoulder, went 2 of 8 shooting from the field, misfiring all four of his shots from 3-point range and knocking down all two of his attempts from the charity stripe. He also added four rebounds and five assists in a 92-85 defeat. He played his seventh-most minutes (32:52) of the season on Monday. He has logged 34-plus minutes in six of 13 appearances this season.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

He will wear a compression shirt to protect his injured shoulder, which isn't 100 percent yet.

New Orleans is a 2 1/2-point favorite at home vs. Washington.


Pelicans guard Eric Gordon hoping to return on Monday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/4/2015) Pelicans guard Eric Gordon was able to participate in Sunday’s practice and is hoping to play Monday against the Wizards, reports The Times-Picayune.

Gordon has been out since November after tearing a labrum in his shoulder and coach Monty Williams said he is leaning toward allowing Gordon to play on Monday, but it will be a game-time decision.

Before the injury, Gordon averaged 9.5 points and 2.3 rebounds in 12 games.


Pelicans guard Eric Gordon to return to practice Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/30/2014) Pelicans guard Eric Gordon, who has been sidelined since late November due to a torn labrum in his left shoulder, said he plans to return to full-team practices Sunday, according to The Times-Picayune.

"Sunday I'll be able to practice," he said. "The main thing is just getting through a practice and going through the bumps there. How I feel is if you are able to practice, you should be able to get through a game.

"I've been participating in practice a little, doing non-contact drills, but this weekend I'll start doing contact drills."

Gordon is hoping to return to game action soon.

"Right now I am in pretty decent shape and by the time I practice and I go out there I should be fine to get going," he said. "But we will see. I don't know what game, but I don't need much practice."


Pelicans' Eric Gordon hoping to return in two weeks


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/23/2014) Pelicans guard Eric Gordon is hoping to return in two weeks, according to FoxSports.

Still no surgery decision for Pelicans G Eric Gordon


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Pelicans G Eric Gordon will make surgery decision in two weeks


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) Pelicans guard Eric Gordon told reporters Tuesday he'll make a decision in approximately two weeks on whether he'll need surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. The Pelicans have ruled him out indefinitely moving forward after an MRI on Monday revealed the tear.

"We'll see," Gordon said. "It's a full tear. I still have a labrum. But it's tough for any athlete to deal with that.

"If I keep on playing, it's going to be a lingering issue. This thing doesn't heal all the way correctly, I've heard, unless surgery happens. I don't know, it's (surgery option) still hard to determine right now."


Pelicans G Eric Gordon out indefinitely with torn labrum


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Pelicans guard Eric Gordon underwent an MRI on his injured left shoulder, which revealed a torn labrum, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. At this point, surgery is not out of the question. He will undergo further evaluation throughout this week to determine the best course of action. The team has ruled him out indefinitely moving forward.

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
(4/10/2014) The Pelicans announced Thursday they will shut down forward Anthony Davis (back spasms) and guard Eric Gordon (left knee tendinitis) for the remainder of the season, with just four games remaining on the schedule.

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.
