Scott Agness: Source said that Pelicans’ G Eric Gordon, who suffered a broken right ring finger for the 2nd time this yr, is having surgery this AM in LA.
Gordon recently missed 16 games after undergoing surgery to repair a fracture to the same finger. He has played in the Pelicans' past four games, averaging 22.7 points in the first three games and scoring seven points in 11 minutes before ending his night early against Utah. "I don't know for sure what happened, but it looks like he might have done the same thing again," Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. "And that would be unfortunate because he worked so hard to get back. I thought he was really playing really good basketball. For that to happen to him again, if it's gonna be six to eight weeks -- and I'm just speculating right now, I don't know that for sure - but if that's gonna be the case, it pretty much takes him until the end of the season."

K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago joined the Mully & Haugh Show on Tuesday morning to discuss LaVine’s future. “The safe bet is still that Zach will return (to Chicago),” Johnson said. He offered that with a caveat though. “I’m just reporting what I was hearing at the Combine – and that is multiple people connected to other teams, agents, etc., the chatter at that Combine, the representation of that chatter is that Zach is very much in play,” Johnson said. “Now that said, the Bulls are still very confident in their ability to re-sign Zach LaVine. Michael Reinsdorf has said it. Arturas Karnisovas has said it. They still have the power to pay him more than any other franchise.”
