"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."
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
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.
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.
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.
"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.
