There has been no change to Eric Gordon's status.  He is still out for four to six weeks.  He will still need to undergo treatment and rehab.  However, it looks like some of that treatment will occur in Los Angeles. The New Orleans Hornets' guard will head to Los Angeles for treatment during a tense time in New Orleans for him says Matt Moore of CBS Sports.  The Hornets released a statement as well about Gordon's treatment:The club, along with the Hornets medical staff and Eric have arranged for a more personalized and intensive rehab regimen that will take place in Los Angeles beginning this week and allow him to work with specialists and provide a more focused attention on rehabbing his injured right knee. The prognosis is still in the 4-6 week range for his return to the court.Gordon has not played much in the last two seasons.  He played in just nine games last season and has not played at all this season.  His injury this year has been a strange one marked by tension between him and Coach Monty Williams.  Gordon did not want New Orleans to match his contract with the Phoenix Suns during the offseason.  Gordon made it clear that he did not want to return to the Hornets, but New Orleans did match the contract and brought him back.  Now they are left to wonder when they will get their expensive guard back on the court.Gordon is making about $13.6 million this season.  He is making this while not playing and while watching the Hornets get off to a 2-2 start.
