The surgery, to alleviate pain caused by particles of scar tissue, was performed by Dr. Richard Ferkel in Los Angeles on Thursday.

Gordon is expected to immediately begin rehab and return to basketball activities sometime this summer.

Gordon averaged 17 points and 3.3 assists in 42 games this season.
