Sean Kelley, radio voice of the Pelicans, tweeted on Gordon's injury during Saturday's game.

John Reid of added that Gordon suffered the injury in a collision with Trey Burke of the Jazz. Gordon tried to stop Burke from driving on the perimeter towards the basket. The Pelicans officially said Gordon's injury was a left shoulder subluxation and there is no timetable for his return.

Expect Austin Rivers, who scored eight points in 33 minutes on Saturday, to see the majority of the minutes at shooting guard until Gordon returns.

Gordon, in his seventh NBA season out of Indiana, is averaging 9.5 points, 2.3 rebounds and two assists, in 12 games this season. The veteran shooting guard has played for the Clippers and Pelicans and has career averages of 17.2 points and 2.5 rebounds, in 323 games.
