New Orleans Pelicans shooting guard Eric Gordon will try to return to action tonight vs. Portland. The shooting guard is listed as day-to-day with a right hip contusion, but is essentially a game-time decision for the 7 p.m. home game against the Trail Blazers.
“I’m starting to ramp up (physical activity) today,” Gordon said after the Pelicans’ morning shootaround. “I still have discomfort as far as jumping and being explosive, running. We’ll see what happens. It is feeling a lot better. I want to see what I can do in warmups (before the game). If I’m not able to do the things I’m capable of, then it’s going to be very, very tough (to play).”
Kevin Love (shoulder) is expected to miss at least two weeks.
Terrible break for the Cavs, as they are going to struggle without Love patrolling the paint for the next few weeks. Hopefully when Love does come back he will be 100-percent because these upcoming matchups aren't going to be easy for the Cavs. Expect Tristian Thompson to fill in for Love while he recovers over the next couple of weeks.
