Pelicans’ Eric Gordon undergoes knee surgery

Surgeons in Southern California repaired a torn meniscus in Pelicans shooting guard Eric Gordon’s left knee Wednesday, as his teammates prepared to tipoff for the team’s season finale in New Orleans.

General Manager Dell Demps reports the arthroscopic procedure went smoothly and the team expects Gordon to be healed and ready for training camp.

Gordon appears to be in good spirits, tweeting this inspirational message out Wednesday afternoon.

Gordon led the Pelicans in scoring 14 times this season. He missed the last 13 games of this season with his left knee, which was originally called tendinitis.
