New Orleans Hornets scoring leader Eric Gordon was expected to miss two to three weeks due to a knee injury, the National Basketball Association club said on Friday.

The 23-year-old guard, averaging 21 points in two games this season, suffered swelling in his right knee after Wednesday`s game against the Philadelphia 76ers. He had missed the previous four games after bruising the knee in the second half of the team`s opening game in Phoenix.

Team doctors have recommended rest for Gordon, who last year averaged 22.3 points a game for the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Hornets, tied with the Houston Rockets for last place in the Southwest Division with a 2-4 record, have lost four games in a row after opening with two victories.
