Rockets guard Eric Gordon traveled with the team for the first time since his Nov. 13 knee surgery having begun on-court running on Monday, the next phase of his rehabilitation. Gordon said the original projection of a return to games at around Christmas remains in play, though it is too soon to be more definitive. The plan is to gradually increase his workload and back off as necessary, making it difficult still to be specific about a timetable.

“Oh, for sure,” Gordon said. “Before, I was dealing with pain every day. It just got worse as the season started. I was trying to get through it. I was more worried about what I was doing than focusing on the game and just playing the game. I can tell it’s better. By the time I get back here soon, all I’ll worry about is playing. It will be a big relief for sure. “I got to get the conditioning part and strengthen my leg. Everything is heading in the right direction. I just have to continue what I’ve been doing.”

Eric Gordon done for the season?

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.”

The New Orleans Pelicans announced today that guard Eric Gordon underwent successful surgery this morning to repair his fractured right ring finger. Gordon sustained the injury during the third quarter of last night’s 114-99 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. His expected timetable to return is 4-6 weeks.

Storyline: Kobe Bryant Death
Paul and Bryant grew close while playing on two Olympic teams together, as well as connecting as fathers playing in the NBA. At Bryant’s final All-Star Game in 2016, Paul, along with friends Carmelo Anthony and Dwyane Wade, hosted a celebratory dinner for Bryant. They presented Bryant retirement gifts such as a subscription to Netflix, underwear and reading glasses, with Paul giving him a cane.

The Washington Post placed a political reporter on administrative leave over tweets she sent as news of Kobe Bryant’s tragic death were still unfolding. The paper said the tweets “displayed poor judgment that undermined the work of her colleagues.” Post reporter Felicia Sonmez shared a 2016 story about 2003 rape allegations from The Daily Beast headlined, “Kobe Bryant’s Disturbing Rape Case: The DNA Evidence, the Accuser’s Story, and the Half-Confession,” as details of the helicopter crash were still trickling out.

“We urge The Post to immediately provide Felicia with a security detail and take whatever other steps are necessary to ensure her safety, as it has done in the past when other reporters were subject to threats,” the guild wrote in its Monday statement. “The company should issue a statement condemning abuse of its reporters, allow Felicia to return to work, rescind whatever sanctions have been imposed and provide her with any resources she may request as she navigates this traumatic experience.”
The union added, “This is not the first time that The Post has sought to control how Felicia speaks on matters of sexual violence. Felicia herself is a survivor of assault who bravely came forward with her story two years ago. When articles attacking her were published in other outlets, The Post did not release a statement in support of one of its respected political reporters. Instead, management issued a warning letter against Felicia for violating The Post’s vague and inconsistently enforced social media guidelines.”
