The team said an MRI revealed that Gordon suffered a torn labrum as a result of the left shoulder subluxation injury in the game. Gordon will be further evaluated this week by the team's medical staff, which will determine his next steps in rehabilitation.
Gordon, 25, is in his fourth season with the Pelicans after spending the first three seasons of his career with the Los Angeles Clippers.
Gordon is averaging 9.5 points, 2.3 points and two assists in 12 games for New Orleans (7-5) this season.
