Eric Gordon Had Left Ankle Surgery

by May 10, 2013

The New Orleans Pelicans — yes, that’s what we’re calling this team now — announced today that shooting guard Eric Gordon had a procedure done on his left ankle. Gordon missed the first two months of the season due to a right knee injury, but still led N.O. in scoring with 17 per night in 42 games. Here’s the press release: “The New Orleans Pelicans announced today that guard Eric Gordon underwent a successful arthroscopic procedure yesterday in his left ankle to alleviate pain caused by particles of scar tissue. The procedure was performed by Dr. Richard Ferkel of the Kerlan-Jobe Clinic in Los Angeles, CA. Gordon is currently recovering from the procedure and will begin rehabilitation immediately while returning to basketball activities later in the summer.”
