Eric Gordon Ramping Up Workouts; Nearing Return

More than five weeks into his rehab from a torn labrum in his left shoulder, Eric Gordon is continuing to increase his workload in an attempt to avoid surgery and return to the New Orleans Pelicans.

During one portion of Monday’s session, the right-handed Gordon smoothly put up dozens of 3-pointers and took pull-up, mid-range jumpers with great success. At one point, he made seven of 10 3-pointers from the right corner, while showing no signs of a shoulder injury.

Although the Pelicans’ brass hasn’t publicly stated a desired return for Gordon, it appears that day is drawing near.

“How close? We are not sure,” Pelicans coach Monty Williams said of Gordon’s return. “We are just going to – as we say – ramp him up to see where his conditioning is and to see how his shoulder responds to (doing) more and more each day.

Steve Ballmer: Clippers Moving to Inglewood ‘come hell or high water’

“I love L.A. I also love my wife, by the way, but I love L.A. and I don’t want there to be any mistake about it. We want to be part of the fabric of this community,” said [Steve] Ballmer, who stepped down as Microsoft’s CEO early in 2014, shortly before he rescued the Clippers from the clutches of disgraced Donald Sterling and bought the franchise for $2 billion.

“We’re moving to Inglewood come hell or high water,” he said of a proposed arena near the site of the stadium being constructed for the Rams and Chargers. “We gotta have a house. So we’re working on a plan to get our own house. We want to get our own house. It turns out the way this works in L.A., which is much beloved to me, that if you start now you might be done in six years.” He then urged fans to contact their Assembly representative and state senator to urge approval of legislation that would accelerate the process. He probably inspired more than a few emails and phone calls.
