The Hornets say Eric Gordon is expected to play Wednesday night against Denver, marking his first action in three months.

The fourth-year shooting guard out of Indiana has played only two games this season because of a right knee injury.

He bruised his knee in the season opener, when he scored 20 points in a victory at Phoenix. He returned for one game Jan. 4 against Philadelphia, scoring 22 points in a loss.
