Eric Gordon hasn't requested trade, surgery on knee still possible

After New Orleans Hornets guard Eric Gordon was scratched from the lineup for an unknown amount of time with a knee injury, the team is still looking to get a clearer picture of whether or not surgery will be needed, according to a report by Ken Berger of CBSSports.com on Friday.

Additionally, though the situation surrounding Gordon's injured knee remains "mysterious," as Berger writes, a source within the league said neither Gordon or his agent have made a trade demand. Officials with the Hornets, according to Berger's report, say that while further surgery is not definite, it hasn't been completely taken off the table at the same time.

Hornets head coach Monty Williams ruled Gordon out indefinitely before the team's season-opening 99-95 loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday.

As a restricted free agent in the offseason, Gordon signed an offer sheet with the Phoenix Suns and made clear his desire to play there before New Orleans retained his services by matching Phoenix's offer.
