New Orleans Pelicans guard Eric Gordon had an arthroscopic procedure done on his ankle yesterday. The procedure is said to have been successful. Gordon averaged 17 ppg for the Pelicans this past season while playing only half of the season. The Pelicans released a statement about the procedure-
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.
Hopefully, this will be the procedure that gets Gordon back on track. He’s been suffering with different injuries for the past couple of seasons and it would be a shame to see a player with so much talent not reach his potential.
