Jennifer Hale's Sideline Secrets: Eric Gordon injury update

Los Angeles, Ca.- The Hornets Eric Gordon is showing more improvement as he rehabs in LA and is still on pace to return to the team by year's end.

Gordon is technically working on his knee, but his quad has been an issue as well, with the muscle atrophied down to 10% strength at one point.

General Manager Dell Demps says Gordon's quad is now at 75%, and he is participating in two-a-day workouts from 8:30-4:00 daily.

The quad muscles must be strong enough to stabilize the knee or further injury will likely result.

Demps is the one who suggested the rehab center in LA to Gordon. Demps gave Gordon two choices after realizing the extent of his injury: a center in Houston or the program in LA, housed in a secluded area near the Galaxy's Home Depot Center, which Demps favored.

Several pro athletes are there currently rehabbing, and the Hornets are using it as a guide for the rehab area in the team's future new facility.

Demps reviews all of Gordon's records and tests results. Demps says he'd like to have Gordon return to New Orleans when he's about 90%.

    As Anthony Davis has stated multiple times, legacies are built with postseason success. Not just defeating the 3rd-seed Trail Blazers, but sweeping them in a series that they dominated from start to finish. Well, it doesn't get much better than that. "I just try to go out every game and just play to the best of my ability, to go out there and help the team win. I'm trying to build a legacy here in New Orleans, and let people know that we're for real," said Anthony Da
