The scope Eric Gordon will undergo next week is the first surgery on his left knee.
Gordon's right knee is the one that has been surgically repaired previously. So if there's a shred of good news here, it's that this is only a scope and the right knee is OK. Still, Dynasty owners should note that Gordon has never played in more than 64 games in a season and his knee woes are chronic. He's not going to be an appealing 2014-15 fantasy play.

Eric Gordon (left knee) will miss the rest of the 2013-14 season and undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee.

The writing has been on the wall for Gordon for the past couple weeks. He's been dealing with tendinitis in his left knee, which is not the knee that cost him almost 100 games in the previous two seasons. He's a talented guy and turned in a solid season, but fantasy owners just can't tolerate his lack of durability down the stretch. Anthony Morrow has stepped it up and is a nice pickup in all standard leagues.

Eric Gordon (knee) will not play against the Suns on Wednesday.

The smart money is on Gordon getting shut down for the year and coach Monty Williams said on Tuesday that's likely to happen. Anthony Morrow has been very effective lately and has quickly become a solid start in standard fantasy leagues for his 3-point output. Gordon can be cut across the board and hopefully you've already done so.
Apr 9 - 3:46 PM

Pelicans coach Monty Williams does not expect Eric Gordon (left knee tendinitis) to return this season.

Gordon continues to get his knee evaluated but he's been out for eight games and there's no reason for him to risk further injury with five games remaining in a lottery-bound season. In 64 appearances this season, Gordon averaged 15.4 points, 1.6 threes, 2.6 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.2 steals, while shooting 44 percent from the field and 79 percent at the free throw line. Add in 2.1 turnovers per game and he failed to crack the top 100 in nine-cat leagues.

Eric Gordon (left knee tendinitis) is not expected to travel for Sunday's game in Portland.

Gordon didn't travel for Friday's game so that his knee could be examined, though the results haven't been disclosed. The oft-injured SG has missed eight straight games and it's possible that he's done for the season, though coach Monty Williams said he'll be evaluated on a game-by-game basis. Anthony Morrow has stepped up nicely in Gordon's absence.
Apr 5 - 2:31 PM

Eric Gordon (knee) will not play against the Jazz on Friday night.

It will be his eighth straight game out of the lineup and there's certainly a chance he will sit out for the season. Gordon has tendinitis in his knee and has now dealt with noteworthy knee issues for each of the past three seasons. Although, this one is to his good knee. Brian Roberts and Tyreke Evans will man the backcourt tonight.
Apr 4 - 7:47 PM

Eric Gordon will not play against the Nuggets on Wednesday night.

His knee tendinitis has kept him out since Mar. 21 and it's not a surprise to see him still out. Gordon has almost always been on the late end of a prognosis and he could be out for a while. The team is not planning on shutting him down for the year, but it's looking more and more likely.
Apr 2 - 5:54 PM

Coach Monty Williams said there are no plans to shut down Eric Gordon (knee) for the season.

The coach added Gordon's status will be determined on a game-by-game basis. Gordon has not played since Mar. 21 due to his tendinitis in his knee and he should be considered questionable for tonight's game vs. the Nuggets. If he sits, Tyreke Evans will start at shooting guard while Al-Farouq Aminu fills in at small forward. Aminu's upside isn't high enough to be added in most leagues.
Apr 2 - 4:14 PM

Eric Gordon (knee) will not play against the Kings on Monday night.

The Pelicans will be without Gordon for their fifth consecutive game. This is to his "good" knee, but the Pelicans are probably playing it smart here in order to prevent him from having two bad ones. Tyreke Evans and Brian Roberts will be in the starting backcourt.
Mar 31 - 6:51 PM

The Pelicans have listed Eric Gordon (knee) as day-to-day.

Gordon has missed five straight games and he belongs on fantasy benches with his status up in the air vs. the visiting Kings. Anthony Morrow will continue to play extra minutes if Gordon isn't ready to return, though Brian Roberts' recent return slashed Morrow's playing time to just 18 minutes on Saturday.
Mar 31 - 1:02 PM

Eric Gordon (knee) will not play against the Spurs on Saturday.

He has been out for five games now and doesn't have a timetable to return. The Pelicans might just want to shut Gordon down at this point, so Anthony Morrow is a solid player to start in most formats even with Brian Roberts back in the lineup.
Mar 29 - 8:07 PM

Eric Gordon (knee) will not play against the Jazz on Friday night.

There was a chance he was going to play, but it's not a surprise he's still out. This injury is not to the knee that basically cost him extended time in the past couple years, but there's no reason for the Pelicans to put him on the court at less than 100 percent. Anthony Morrow is a fine option again tonight with Austin Rivers backing him up.
Mar 28 - 6:25 PM

Eric Gordon (knee tendinitis) was listed as day-to-day by the Pelicans and is questionable to play against the Jazz Friday night.

Gordon was present and shooting at Thursday's practice, but the lack of noise surrounding his status for Friday is concerning for his availability. If Gordon is again unable to suit up Friday night, Anthony Morrow will have a chance to build on his 27-point effort from Wednesday and would make for a solid play alongside Tyreke Evans and a now-healthy Austin Rivers.

Eric Gordon (knee tendinitis) was seen shooting around after Thursday's practice, but his status for Friday's game remains uncertain.

Anthony Morrow blew up for 27 points in the Pelicans' short-handed backcourt on Wednesday, but his continued appeal hinges on Gordon's health. "It's not like something that's going to keep on going for a long time," Gordon said about his tendinitis. "It's almost like a sprain, but I just got to monitor it and keep on exercising."
Mar 27 - 5:39 PM

Eric Gordon (knee) will not play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

This will be his third game out of the lineup and is day-to-day. Gordon has been doing some work at shootaround, but he could miss additional time including Friday vs. the Jazz. Anthony Morrow is starting in his place.
