Pelicans Get Gordon Back From Injury But Lose Dejean-Jones To Injury
One player returns from injury while another could miss the rest of the season due to an injury.
This is basically the norm for the New Orleans Pelicans, who seem to be bit by the injury buy far more than Kyrie Irving is bit by bed bugs.
A week after signing a three-year deal with the club, undrafted rookie Bryce Dejean-Jones underwent surgery for a broken right wrist today. The Pelicans have not announced a timetable for his return.
Dejean-Jones has been a bright spot, giving New Orleans much needed solid minutes at small forward, as well as time at shooting guard.
On a positive note, the team announced today the return of starting shooting guard Eric Gordon. He will return to the lineup for tomorrow's matchup against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Gordon has missed the last 15 games with a broken right ring finger. His return gives the Pelicans 11 healthy players.
