Last season was yet another injury-plagued one for Eric Gordon, who suited up 64 times for the Pelicans and averaged over 15 points per game. He underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in April, and says he’s progressing well. From VigilantSports.com:
‘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.’
The surgery was to his left, healthier knee. It was a cleanup operation, and very minor, he said. The Pelican guard had the same procedure before on his right knee, which has been more troubling to him throughout his career.
‘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.’
