News: Anderson (neck) is feeling "great" after missing the majority of the 2013-14 season with injury, the Times-Picayune reports.
Impact: Anderson suffered two herniated discs in his neck after a scary collision in Boston in early January. The injury limited him to just 22 games last year, but—much like the rest of his teammates—this season promises to be healthier for the sharp-shooting forward. With Omer Asik acquired to anchor the middle and Anthony Davis continuing to improve, the Pelicans should have a very formidable frontcourt.

News: Gordon is experiencing a normal offseason for the first time since joining New Orleans in 2011, the Pelican's team website reports
Impact: The shooting guard is finally healthy coming into a season, and believes that the explosiveness that made him so dangerous early in his career could be back for this year. Gordon underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee back in April, but has been back on the court working out for the past few months. He plans to continue working in New Orleans until training camp opens in late September. Gordon averaged a career-worst 15.4 points per game last season, but could be looking at a bigger campaign if his health doesn't fail him.

News: The New Orleans Pelicans have signed veteran small forward John Salmons to a free agent contract.
Impact: The 6-foot-6 Salmons, whose acquisition was announced by the club Tuesday, has played 12 seasons in the NBA. He has averaged 9.4 points, 3 rebounds and 2.5 assists during his career. The 34-year-old entered the NBA with Philadelphia after being selected 26th overall in the 2002 draft. The Pelicans have been looking to add depth at small forward since Al-Farouq Aminu left for Dallas in free agency this offseason.

News: Anderson (back) is recovering smoothly from a herniated disc and expects to be ready for training camp, reports.
Impact: Anderson hasn't played since an on-court collision with Boston's Gerald Wallace ended his season in early January. He received clearance to return to the court last week but will be held out of full contact drills for a few more weeks. "I can do everything with the guys as far as shooting workouts, drills, weights and conditioning," Anderson said. "I just can't play five-on-five or (even) one-on-one basketball. My disc is fused, which is good, but if I take the risk of getting hit too soon, it just wouldn't be a good thing. I have a few more weeks, so training camp I'll be ready to go all out." Anderson played in only 22 games last season, averaging 19.8 points while hitting at a 40.9 percent clip from three-point range - both career-highs. Assuming he's back at full strength in 2014-15, Anderson should play a vital role for a Pelicans team that could contend for a playoff spot if they stay healthy.
