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.”

Now that Russell is getting some good pub — the narratives flipping from lottery bust to Magic Johnson gave up on him too quickly — he won’t let it distract him. “I’ve been on the worst side of the tilt,” Russell said after Thursday’s practice at Santa Monica High School. “So to now to be on this side where we’re having a little success, I’ve seen both narratives. I’ve seen every narrative you could throw. When it comes to preparing myself for them, I’ve looked in the mirror and I’ve put myself in the situation before [the media] could.”
James Ham: According to Joerger, no structural damage to Harry Giles leg. Just a thigh bruise and it stiffened up a bit during the half. No reason to risk anything more so Kings shut him down for the evening.
