Eric Gordon Undergoes Successful Arthroscopic Ankle Surgery

USA TODAY Sports

Well, this came out of nowhere:

The New Orleans Pelicans announced today that guard Eric Gordon underwent a successful arthroscopic procedure yesterday in his left ankle to alleviate pain caused by particles of scar tissue. The procedure was performed by Dr. Richard Ferkel of the Kerlan-Jobe Clinic in Los Angeles, CA.

Gordon is currently recovering from the procedure and will begin rehabilitation immediately while returning to basketball activities later in the summer.

Removing scar tissue isn't a big deal as athletes who participate in a wide range of sports routinely undergo the same procedure. I know what you're thinking, "even if the patient is Eric Gordon?" Well, at least it wasn't anything more serious!

One interesting tidbit for the day: did you know the buildup of scar tissue can be readily prevented from massaging the afflicted trauma areas? Let's get to it, Pelican's training staff!
