Gordon indicated Wednesday that he's progressing well from Jan. 20 surgery to repair a fractured right ring finger. Gordon was initially given a four-to-six week recovery timetable after undergoing the procedure, so it appears as though he'll be back at some point in late February or early March. Once healthy, Gordon should have little trouble displacing Bryce Dejean-Jones as the starting shooting guard, and could be in line for a regular 30-plus minute role with Tyreke Evans (knee) likely to undergo season-ending surgery. Due to the prominent role he'll probably maintain upon returning, Gordon could be worth stashing in leagues that have large benches or DL spots.
Gordon (finger) underwent successful surgery on Wednesday, and will be out four to six weeks while recovering, John Reid of NOLA.com reports. Gordon fractured his right ring finger (on his shooting hand) in a win over the Timberwolves Tuesday night. In Gordon's absence, look for Jrue Holiday or Norris Cole to fill a starting role.
Gordon, who fractured his right ring finger in Tuesday's 114-99 win over the Timberwolves, is expected to be sidelined for four-to-six weeks, Scott Kushner of the New Orleans Advocate reports. Gordon left late in the third quarter of Tuesday's game with the injured digit, which occurred on his shooting hand. The Pelicans are officially listing Gordon as out indefinitely for the moment, but sources close to the situation believe it will require at least a month-long absence for the 27-year-old. Gordon, who is averaging 14.9 points and has knocked down 101 three-pointers on the season, could end up being replaced in the starting lineup by Jrue Holiday or Norris Cole.
Gordon fractured his right ring finger Tuesday against the Timberwolves and there is no timetable for his return, NBA.com's Jim Eichenhofer reports. It was initially thought to be a jammed finger, but now the diagnosis suggests Gordon will miss at least several games. Norris Cole, Alonzo Gee and Toney Douglas figure to be the replacement options in the short term. Look for Gordon's timetable to be updated later this week.
Gordon jammed his right ring finger Tuesday against the Timberwolves and will not return, the Times-Picayune's John Reid reports. He had 11 points, one rebound, three assists and one steal in 25 minutes before exiting. Gordon will be re-evaluated prior to Thursday's game against the Pistons. If he is forced to miss further time, Norris Cole, Alonzo Gee and Toney Douglas would be asked to pick up the slack.
