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.”

On Friday, James banged his right leg in a fourth-quarter collision with Larry Nance Jr. James said afterward it left him with pain in the leg and the ankle. Asked how the leg felt Sunday morning, James said, “It’s been better, but I’ll be ready tonight.” James wouldn’t say whether the ankle or the leg was more of an issue. “Uh, the ankle is a part of the leg, so it’s the full leg,” he said.
Asked what Green did best in Game 6, Lue said, “I think he attacked the small guys, the switches, and took his time, did a good job attacking, rebounded the ball well. I just think defensively being able to switch and guard multiple positions, that’s huge for us. He was able to switch a lot more, we were able to do a lot of different stuff defensively and he came through for us.”
