Hornets guard Gordon to take it easy in training camp

The New Orleans Hornets announced on Monday that they will limit guard Eric Gordon's participation during training camp.

Gordon underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee last season and experienced soreness while participating in voluntary workouts near the end of the summer.

"The team is taking a cautious approach with Eric to give him the best chance to be ready for the season," general manager Dell Demps said.

The Hornets re-signed the fourth-year guard this past offseason after matching the Phoenix Suns' four-year, $58 million offer sheet.
