It’s been no secret that the New Orleans Hornets are awaiting the return of prized free agent Eric Gordon and No. 1 overall pick, Anthony Davis.

They’ve lost four of their last five games and hold the worst record in the West at 5-13.

But according to Steve Kyler of HoopsWorld, the New Orleans stars are set to return to practice any day now.

Talked with (Anthony Davis) yesterday… he is not yet cleared to practice, but he is running and working with trainers every day. He doesn’t look like he’s favoring it, but he and the team want to be a 100% so that he can finish the season and not be in and out.

I would expect him back within the next ten days, and Eric Gordon maybe 10 to 14 days after that… both as very close to a return.

Davis has suffered from a sprained ankle since late November and Gordon hasn’t seen an NBA court this season after suffering a knee injury last season and playing all of nine games. Gordon was retained as a restricted free agent over the summer
