New Orleans Hornets guard Eric Gordon will miss at least another week of practice, as the team is being cautious in dealing with his ailing right knee. Gordon is still recovering from knee surgery he had on Feb. 14; the injury to his knee limited him to just nine games last season.
Gordon has participated in team walkthroughs and some exercises, according to head coach. The Hornets plan to work Gordon a bit harder beginning next week and then make adjustments to his rehab plan from there.
New Orleans still has seven preseason games to play, beginning with Tuesday's game against the Charlotte Bobcats. The Hornets opened their preseason schedule with an 85-80 win over the Orlando Magic on Sunday.
Gordon averaged 20.6 points and 3.4 assists in his nine games with the Hornets last year. Prior to coming to New Orleans in a trade last December, he spent three seasons with the Los Angeles Clippers.
