Eric Gordon was given full clearance last week after undergoing surgery on his left ankle in May.
"Yeah this is the first time that I have felt very good in about two years for sure since I have been here," Gordon said on Monday at the Pelicans' media day. "Since I have been here I have been injured here and there and had surgeries each year. So it's the first time that I have been pretty healthy since I have been here."
Gordon has played in just 51 games over the past two seasons since being traded to the New Orleans Pelicans.
"I've been with the team for about two weeks," Gordon said. "I did all the running and the basketball workouts. But now it's time for me to progress because I am going to have a slow buildup as this training camp (continues) because it's different from what I have been doing this summer to what we are going to be doing now."
