The Pelicans likely won't make a push to re-sign Eric Gordon this summer according to John Reid of the Times-Picayune.
Gordon hasn't been able to stay healthy throughout his career and that could really drive down his price this summer when he becomes an unrestricted free agent. Gordon broke his finger for the second time this season which required surgery, but he should be ready to go for the start of the 2016-17 campaign. He finished with averages of 15.2 points, 2.7 assists, 2.2 boards, 1.0 steals and 2.5 3-pointers. Mar 13 - 10:29 AM

Date:

Eric Gordon (broken finger) has been ruled out for the remainder of the 2015-16 season.

Gordon underwent successful surgery in Los Angeles on Tuesday, and he never really had a shot of returning to the court this season. Jrue Holiday and Norris Cole will be forced into heavy minutes with Gordon on the sidelines, while newly signed Orlando Johnson could also work his way into the rotation. Gordon can safely be sent to the waiver wire in all re-draft leagues with this report.

Eric Gordon (broken finger) underwent surgery in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

This is the second time Gordon has fractured his right ring finger this year and it looks like this one may end his 2015-16 season. Gordon's return was originally estimated at 6-8 weeks, so we'll have to keep an eye to see if the Pelicans amend that timetable. If Gordon does miss the rest of the season, Jrue Holiday and Norris Cole will continue to see a boost in their fantasy value.
Mar 8 - 12:20 PM

Eric Gordon is in Los Angeles getting medical opinions to determine if he needs surgery on his re-fractured finger.

Gordon is likely looking at an extended absence and he missed 16 games the last time he fractured his finger, so his owners need to start evaluating other options. Coach Alvin Gentry speculated that Gordon would miss 6-8 weeks, so in that case his season would be over. In the meantime, Jrue Holiday and Norris Cole will benefit in his absence.
Mar 7 - 8:44 PM

Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry speculated that Eric Gordon will be out for 6-8 weeks after breaking his right ring finger again on Saturday.

"For that to happen to him again, if it's gonna be six to eight weeks -- and I'm just speculating right now, I don't know that for sure - but if that's gonna be the case, it pretty much takes him until the end of the season," Gentry said. The Pelicans haven't issued a timetable yet, but there is only a little more than a month left in the regular season. Jrue Holiday will likely be the starter going forward, while Norris Cole and Toney Douglas will see an uptick in minutes.

Eric Gordon fractured his right ring finger again on Saturday vs. the Jazz.

He just returned from this same injury after sitting out for over four weeks, so this is a huge blow for Gordon who will become a free agent this summer. Considering the Pelicans likely won't make the playoffs, this injury could end Gordon's season. Jrue Holiday started the second half and should see more minutes moving forward, while Norris Cole and Toney Douglas will see a boost in minutes as well.
Mar 5 - 8:32 PM

Eric Gordon (finger) left Saturday's game vs. the Jazz and went to the locker room.

He tried to steal the ball from Rudy Gobert, but he hit the same finger that was previously fractured and was in obvious pain. Gordon is being checked out by team doctors right now and is considered questionable to return. If he misses time, Toney Douglas will have to step up.
Mar 5 - 7:58 PM

Eric Gordon scored 23 points against the Spurs on Thursday with five rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He's really the only true scorer on the wing on the roster. Gordon should see a lot of shots and even some play-making chances with Tyreke Evans (knee) out for the season. He should be owned in all leagues.
Mar 3 - 10:58 PM

Eric Gordon (finger) returned from a one-month absence and scored a season-high 31 points against the Wolves on Saturday, adding three rebounds, two assists, three steals and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

Yeah, so that brace on his finger didn't affect him. He's really the only true wing on the roster and there is no help on the way either. Plus, his usage rate should see an uptick while Anthony Davis (toe) is out. Gordon should not be on any waiver wires.
Feb 27 - 9:58 PM

Eric Gordon (finger) will not have a minutes restriction on Saturday against the Wolves.

He will have a brace on his ring finger in this game. Gordon has been working out with the team, so conditioning shouldn't be an issue. The Pelicans were playing guys out of position on the wing, so Gordon should get all he can handle. He should be owned in all leagues.
Feb 27 - 5:34 PM

Eric Gordon (finger) will start on Saturday vs. the Wolves.

It's not clear who will move to the bench, but it's a safe bet that it will be Alonzo Gee. Gordon hasn't played since Feb. 19, so he will probably be pretty rusty. With Tyreke Evans (knee) out for the season, Gordon should be picked up in standard leagues if he's available as he could have a strong finish to the season since the Pelicans are so shorthanded on the wings.
Feb 26 - 1:32 PM

Eric Gordon (broken right ring finger) said that he'll be back on the court "any day now," and he wants to play even if he's less than 100 percent.

The Pelicans sure could use him with Bryce Dejean-Jones (wrist) set to miss the next 6-8 weeks of action, and Tyreke Evans (knee) done for the year. Gordon's return to the court could be sped up a bit out of necessity with New Orleans' hurting for some backcourt depth, and he should be stashed away just about everywhere as he should be able to churn out mid-round value upon his return to the court as the unquestioned starting two-guard for the Pelicans.
Feb 25 - 6:59 PM

Eric Gordon (finger) will not play against the Thunder on Thursday.

He is doing some work in practice, so he could be back soon. The Pelicans need some help at guard with how poorly Norris Cole has played lately, so Gordon should get run once he's ready. If you want to stash him for about a week as a guy with mid-round upside, it's a pretty solid idea.
Feb 24 - 6:34 PM

Eric Gordon (broken right ring finger) has begun practicing without contact and hopes for full clearance next week.

Gordon has been dribbling and shooting with his right hand and a return in late February still sounds feasible. Playing time shouldn't be an issue with Tyreke Evans (knee) on the shelf, which makes Gordon a strong rest-of-season pickup where available.
Feb 18 - 11:58 AM

Eric Gordon (broken finger) said that everything is progressing "good and as normal."

Gordon is hopeful to make it back to the court by late-February, and with Tyreke Evans likely to undergo season-ending knee surgery, Gordon will be a larger part of the offense once he's able to get back on the court. Gordan has mid-round upside sans Evans, so he's worth stashing away in most leagues now that he's nearing a return.
