Eric Gordon injury update: Hornets' guard still has no timetable for return

New Orleans Hornets guard Eric Gordon said he plans to rest this week while he nurses his sore right knee, according to The Times-Picayune.

Gordon said there is no timetable for his return, but his knee does feel better.

"I definitely want to get back to where I should be,'' Gordon said. "As of right now, I'm just going through the rehab with a lot of strengthening, running and all that. I want to take a real toll on it this week and then see how it goes from there next week. I definitely want to be back before the season starts and that's what we're striving right now."

Hornets coach Monty Williams said he'd like to see Gordon play in at least a couple of preseason games before the season starts. New Orleans begins the 2012 season Oct. 31 against the San Antonio Spurs.

Gordon, 23, played in just nine games for the Hornets last season. He averaged 20.6 points per game last year, his first season in New Orleans.
