Pelicans' Gordon To Miss A Bit Of Preseason

Pelicans_Eric_Gordon_2013Eric Gordon is going to miss the first couple weeks of the preseason but its just a precaution, at least according to the team. Im sure that makes Pelican fans feel a whole lot better.

This is from the Pelicans official Web site (via Eye on Basketball):

"On Tuesday, Williams told local reporters that shooting guard Eric Gordon is not expected to be able to play in an exhibition game for about two weeks. Gordon participated in practice but is being monitored as he progresses in his conditioning following offseason ankle surgery.

Hes ramping up, getting his conditioning back, since he just got his release from the doctors, Williams said. Hes moving toward the type of conditioning he needs to be in. I dont want him to go out there full bore and pull a hamstring or something, because he hasnt been going (physically) as long as the other guys have.
