Eric Gordon says his knee is doing better following surgery, will hit court in July

It’s another season of rehab for Eric Gordon.

Fortunately this one is more minor for the Pelicans’ two guard, at the end of the season he had a clean up scope of his left knee (it is the right one that has had the major surgeries).

Gordon is running his summer youth camp in Indiana and Scott Agness of vigilantsports.com caught up with him and asked about the knee (hat tip to Rotoworld).

“The knee is doing well,” Gordon told VigilantSports.com. “I’ve been running, moving around very well now. There’s no rush but I mean I’m good now…

“I think overcompensation happened probably to this left knee,” he said, with his left hand rubbing his knee. “It just needed a very minor cleanup. I’m fine now.”

“I’ll start playing around July,” Gordon said.

The Pelicans could be a very interesting team next season — Jrue Holiday, Gordon and Ryan Anderson and Jason Smith all were expected to play a key role for the Pelicans and instead spent much of the season injured.

As Anthony Davis continues to develop into an elite player, if these other guys could just stay healthy the Pelicans could be a threat to make the playoffs in the West. Especially if they can add another big man to play next to Davis, as they are trying to do.

    Body is charmin soft.

    If he can some how stay healthy I think Pelicans can be a 6-8 seed.

    Must be entering the last year of his contract,time to get healthy again and see who he can reel in.

    So if NO struggles again this season,how fast will it take for other teams to start talking about Davis needing to move? I mean he’d be on the same track as Kyrie Irving. I hope you succeed Pelicans,if not the NBA rumor mill will crank up and have him signing with NYK or LAL.

      Yeah! LAL!

      Run a report guys that says how much Davis and his girlfriend/wife like the city of LA and get this rumor mill jumping! Lol

    They need a center. Then watch out.

    Get rid of the guy. Taking .50 on a dollar, but who cares?

    They NEED to trade Gordon, all the plus minus stats scream it. Trade Gordon for a 1st rd SF like James Young and a big man to spell Anderson and Davis with solid defence

      A Gm that trades for Gordon is a GM that wants to be fired. NO matched the offer from Phoenix due to he was all they had to show from the CP3 deal,but he didn’t want to be there in the first place and asked them to not match the offer sheet.
